Adding references...

Hi RobSmith, seeing as you're contributing much to the content page, can you try to include sufficient references to the details you add? For example, since you're including details about the House impeachment vote, I suppose you could find one source that lists the vote by each representative and cite the source multiple times as needed. In addition, you originally mentioned that the unemployment rate in AOC's district was at 9.1%, though I couldn't find any sources to back that up and had to change the statistic based on estimates. Thanks! --Liberaltears (talk) 23:49, 13 March 2020 (EDT)

The AOC stat came from Ballotpedia; I wanted to include the Median income figure, as well cause it is below the national average and significant, but that would require time, interpretation, and cites. Right now I'm just trying to cover much ground quickly, working off this list provided by the DCCC whom they consider vulnerable. Evan at that, I'm focusing on Congressional Progressive Caucus members cause we already have some basic information on their vulnerabilities in Conservapedia.
As to the Impeachment articles, only two Democrats abstained or voted against it. I don't think we have to link to a cite for each one individually. RobSDe Plorabus Unum 00:21, 14 March 2020 (EDT)
Ok. I finished vulnerable CPC members. Next are vulnerable Green_New_Deal#Supporters and Medicare_for_All#House; we should develop a system to identify Members of Congress in Category:Anti Second Amendment. RobSDe Plorabus Unum 01:05, 14 March 2020 (EDT)
Alright, thank you RobSmith! Also, I know this is out of topic, but I never quite got a clear response on whether I have permission to create a template titled "Template:Republican establishment". You partially responded here, but didn't give a clear "yes" or "no" answer. --Liberaltears (talk) 11:05, 14 March 2020 (EDT)
Honestly, I don't know much about Templates. Do you need a page unlocked to do it? RobSDe Plorabus Unum 11:18, 14 March 2020 (EDT)
What do you mean by whether I need a page unlocked? Templates creations aren't automatically locked, as I've created userbox templates before. I thought that the only criteria that needs to be met to create templates is getting Sysop permission, as mentioned here. --Liberaltears (talk) 11:26, 14 March 2020 (EDT)

If it were me, I'd use the official San Francisco Poop Map for California's 12th district, just to highlight issues of concern to voters. RobSDe Plorabus Unum 19:01, 21 March 2020 (EDT)

Done. --Liberaltears (talk) 19:56, 21 March 2020 (EDT)


Black Lives Matter protesters murdered 8 year old Secoriea Turner on July 5, 2020 in Atlanta.[1]

What if we posted this img at the top (move _TOC_ down a little) and then just add a sentence or two to various candidates, "So and so is a supporter of Black Lives Matter"? I can work on a paragraph or two in the meantime to add in the Intro the significance of BLM and riots as an issue (it's bigger than impeachment now). RobSTrump 2Q2Q 02:34, 8 July 2020 (EDT)

CA 12

Why does CA 12 have 2 Democrats on the ballot for the general? [1] RobSTrump 2Q2Q 13:01, 8 July 2020 (EDT)

Cori Bush

We might as well begin a Cori Bush article. According to the McCloskey's of Missouri#2020_Marxist_insurrection and The Federalist, she's going to win MO-1 and become the fifth member of the The Squad. RobSFree Kyle! 13:37, 12 September 2020 (EDT)

I'll see if I can get a page creation about her done later today. —LiberaltearsMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Saturday, 14:48, 12 September 2020 (EDT)
The Federalist link looks like a good starting point. RobSFree Kyle! 14:51, 12 September 2020 (EDT)
Whatever you do, get a paragraph or two we can paste in the The Squad without having to do a complete overhaul of that article. RobSFree Kyle! 14:53, 12 September 2020 (EDT)
I'll still try to add in all the important information I can gather for Bush. —LiberaltearsMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Saturday, 14:59, 12 September 2020 (EDT)

Remove minuscule sections?

Since there are 435 sections and many of them regarding safe seats won't have anything particularly interesting added to them, perhaps some of them can be removed so that the overall page doesn't seem too bland? Any objections to this? —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Sunday, 13:56, 4 October 2020 (EDT)

Madison Cawthorn

We should begin a page on Madison Cawthorn [2] cause it looks like he's gonna be winner. RobSFree Kyle! 11:58, 12 October 2020 (EDT)

Alright then, I might get the page on Cawthorn created soon. —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Monday, 19:02, 12 October 2020 (EDT)
He's not even elected yet, and we have a good example of the tolerance, compassion, and equal opportunity the left gives to people with disabilities. RobSFree Kyle! 19:11, 12 October 2020 (EDT)
Okay, I created the page here. What do you think? —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Wednesday, 19:06, 14 October 2020 (EDT)
Looks real good. Shouldn't be too hard to transition the article to full blown member of Congress. Even in the remote possibility he loses, we haven't heard the last from him. He's still part of a generation of rising stars.
Which reminds; there are many black Republican candidates running in "safe" Democrat districts who get little or no money from either the national or state party cause it's considered a waste of funds. When the incumbent Democrats get re-elected, many if not most of these rising stars then become serious candidates for appointed positions in the Trump administration as Trump goes peddle-to-the-mettle draining the swamp in his second term, or they become candidates for appointment or office in state elections. The are young and enthusiastic, and shouldn't be ignored even if the suffer a defeat in 2020 against big odds.
IOWs, it's not surprising the only challenges against corruption in supposed "black only" or "black set-aside" districts comes from black Republican reformers. This was bound to happen. RobSFree Kyle! 19:30, 14 October 2020 (EDT)
Hmm, interesting analyses. —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Wednesday, 19:32, 14 October 2020 (EDT)
