I agree that half of the debate time needs to remind people of the racist--sexist--Trump twitters and rallies.   

The other on how to deal with gun violence.   

 

As far as the talk on healthcare I think they all should get together and make a blanket declaration that  if one of them is elected that they  will include  a group of medical professionals to help to design something that will help everyone.

 

Very few employers pay for the entire insurance coverage for private insurance.  There has to be an incentive for those with these plans to change over to a gov't run plan that no doubt overall will be better for everyone.   Ask any senior who had both.  .

I completely agree they need to focus, as a united group, their attention on countering Republican ideologies with Democratic differences.  They don't even need to name names or attack a single R.  At this point in time the last thing they should be doing is comparing themselves, their particular ideas to other party candidates.  Get rid of egos and put country first.

Any number of them who could actually lead them all into into clearly establishing a solid, cohesive Democratic message of choice, I can't help but think would rise to the top, possibly just on demonstrated leadership skills alone.  Then would be the time to debate each other on individual issues of The Platform.

CT and Cent,

All good points, count me in!

I also have one other suggestion, may we encourage others and members of the media to no longer give trump any credit, or hope, for doing anything positive in this office. He has done nothing good, he is doing nothing of value, and he will do nothing positive for the rest of his time in office, which we can help to make short. 

We must be very vocal about who he is,

and that he has no redeeming qualities. 

We will not win by being passive, complimentary, or nice. But maintain our personal values, and be honest...

and remember, honesty can cut thru the lies, false accusations and trump b***s***, can’t it!

  • 50 year old school busing

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.....
