When I was much younger

When a politician tried to buy your vote with goodies or cash- it was known as bribery and was a crime! Today it is known as the platform for any democrat running for president!

1. Democrat election workers and "canvasers"

are given, what is called, "walking around money". Commonly considered "bribe money" to get the "base voter" off the couch and down to the sidewalk to get them on the busses to go to the polls. They aren't given the actual name of the candidate to vote for, that would be unnecessarily complicated for these "citizens". They are told to vote for ANY name with a "(D)" behind it. Simple.

3. You might want to look into Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City, etc.

Any large city with a populous inner city.
I'm pretty sure they could give your "local dem party" apparatus some pointers.
Good luck!

4. Well

L.A.,NYC are others.

But I am more worried about the Dem POTUS candidates making Santa Claus look like a skin flint! ,

They are tripping over each other as to who can offer the biggest bribe to get the most votes!

So far:
Free health care
a guaranteed income
having others pay student loans
free school
reparations for people who were never slaves
subsidies for about everything!

Course getting rid of fossil fules ends
plastics, all engines loads of manufacturing, the armed forces (I would love to see their plan for a sub with solar panels)
