The Dems Must Do This To Win

Message 1 of 16

They must have a mainstream candidate who appeals to middle America and they must abandon any dramatic plans which force people to do something. Give people a choice. 

 

And stop talking about 40 year old school busing issues.

The GOP has been stoking racial hatred since Nixon learned he could win by cowtowing to the KKK with his Southern Strategy.

 

Every Republican since has played the same race card while moving closer to their real goal, a Corporate Oligarchy answerable to NO ONE. It's how tiny England controlled its huge Empire - set the natives against one another so they cannot unite to throw out their colonial rulers.

 

Does the GOPerBase REALLY believe it was civil rights that kept them from getting a raise since 1970? Who do they think decides how their employer will divide his/her profits? The DNC? Some faceless (but not white) immigrant?

 

How many GOPerBots will stand up and say "I'm worth less in my job than my father was in his, but my boss is FOUR TIMES as valuable than dad's boss was?"

If they won't say it WHY DO THEY VOTE IT?

Dems need to engage Americans like never before. We need a psunami in 2020 to flush out the Trump party and anyone else who stands in the way of progress and dealing with so many of our country's greatest problems, which are NOT being dealt with because the Trump party ONLY cares about maintaining power and tax cuts and nothing else. Dems. should call out the Trump party at every opportunity as the party which is blocking progress for my two cents worth.

Getting what you called  a  "free ride" are children, some seniors, the disabled, veterans but I call it helping those who are in need.  LIKE CHRISTIANS AND HUMANS ARE SUPPOSED TO.  

The solutions given by some candidates are not overwhelmingly approved by the others so I don't think you are being fair by claiming it's "everyone". 

Republicans hate social benefts----intelligent people GET IT.   However, their policies have always made more reason for a  DECENT  human being to help the ones in need whatever their reasons are.  ...it's what makes us HUMAN. 


You cannot have a healthy---happy country unless everyone has access to  food---shelter and healthcare and that's the bottom line here.

Everyone has access to food, shelter, healthcare, education, and equal opportunity.  The left want a system where everyone gets a guaranteed income it you work or not and a citizen or illegal alien, as well as free college, and forced new green deal which will bankrupt the country.

 

That is not the country I was born in!

The Dems must stop being stupid. They need to be smart and tough in their debates. Instead of talking about dumb issues such as:

  • 50 year old school busing
  • taking away private health insurance
  • giving free, lifetime health insurance to illegal immigrants

They should instead focus on issues where the Republicans are vulnerable. Here are some examples, please feel free to add your own.

  • Why do Republicans offer 100% support to a pathological liar in the White House?
  • Why do Republicans block efforts to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices?
  • Why do Republicans block all efforts to provide universal health insurance?
  • Why do Republicans block all efforts to protect the election from Russia?
  • Why do Republicans block universal background checks?
  • Why do Republicans give huge tax breaks and subsidies to the ultra wealthy and large corporations?
  • Why did Republicans build up the largest deficit in Amercan History?
  • Why do Republcans support tariffs?
  • Why don't Republicans offer 100% support to NATO?

Most intelligent people vote their pocketbook Really?  I call that greedy and self-serving and hardly, "Christian-like" and most are doing better with Trump than Democrats.  Because trump lied about giving tac-cuts to the middle-class AND not the wealthy.  

 

The new green deal doesn't help anyone but help the economy go bankrupt.  Apparently some don't understand the green deal....

 

Free college is good if you are the recipient but not good if you pay for someone else's college.  Then don't pay for someone else's college....

 

Handing everyone (including illegal aliens) $1K per month is good for the recipients but not good for the economy LOL!  Actually it is great for the economy.....as most of the 34B American's would be buying things in their communities.....or the people paying taxes. Nope! They too would be getting the same benefit.....

 

It also is an incentive not to work No, it isn't!  to collect free handouts from Democrats.  It would be a benefit from the Government.....

 

Democrats are going to lose big time because of the freebies!  LOL....dream on.  None of these will even be in the picture at election time.....listening to Fox News is not your friend.....



More nonsense.

@JANMB 

Your points are so well taken. I have come to assume that trump and repubs do not want a happy, healthy society. 

What would it really take to make sure that all citizens have food, clothing, healthcare, and shelter. trump and his minions have no intention of making sure that the needy are given a hand...but they want to pretend how they are great givers... bs, they are selfish, small people... we do not need to pretend who they are...they are doing all of the pretending!

Dems need to focus on their winning issues:

 

Revise the tax code so the rich pay their fair share.

 

Raise the SS Cap to $250,000 and index to inflation.

 

Universal Health Care coverage with a Public Option.

 

Tuition Free Community College

 

Gov't  grants and loans at Treasury Bill rates for State colleges and Universities

 

And focus on the pathalogical liar ToadPOTUS and his disasterous foreign and economic policies.

Doing better under Cadet Bonespurs? Number's don't lie, but GOPers do

Household Income Since Peak

The top 60% had ZERO growth from 2017 to 2018, and the bottom 40% lost ground from their all time high points 20 years ago.

 

GOPers who think donny's helping the economy doubtless got their economics education at Trump U.
