What is the 2018 platform? So far all I have seen is "Oh how I hate Trump" and "free".


Our Country does not currently have the Luxury of Political Platforms and Discussions about who has the Best Poltical Ideology and Promises

 

There is a better than average chance - we have a Russian Agent masquerading as a US President.........................

 

Of course everyone in the Trump Cult and all the Trump Sycophants in Congress want to constantly attempt to divert attention away from another corrupt Republican President in the Whitehouse

 

There can be no Government or Politics as usual until the Truth about what Trump knew and when he knew it is exposed

 

Trump could clear all this up today - release his Tax Returns and sit down in front of a Grand Jury of his peers and answer Muellers Questions

 

The Reasons he refuses to do either are why Trump Trump Sycophants and the Trump Cult want to pretend the 2108 Midterms are just another Election and we should focus on Politics

 

We can't - our Country is under Attack from within and without and the only useful function of the Midterm Elections is to insure we have at least one House of Congress that will fulfill their Constitutional Obligation of Oversight

 

 


O.K. Since WE Do not Have the Luxury of Political Platforms and Discussions about who has the Best Poltical Ideology and Promises - What DO the democrats Have to Offer other THAN "Oh how we hate Trump" and "free"?

 

And then it goes down hill to the President being a Russian agent. In other words, "Vote for us, we ain't Trump".

 

 


Well as a Student of History.....................this approach seems to have worked remakably well with the 35% of Americans who claim they are in the Trump Base............................

"Vote for us, we ain't Trump" seems a strange rallying cry for Trump supporters - but, if you say so.

 

Several News Media have tallied the most frequent Cliches used by Trump at his Rallies with his base during the Campaign -

 

One of the most frequently used

 

"What do you have to lose?" Trump asked again and again.

I don't suppose you have an address where that "most frequent" claim can be verified? That was a reasonable comment to the black community - the Dems have owned them for a long time and things really haven't improved.

Of course - now we know..................but there is no reason to beleive this same strategy wouldn't work on the same people this election cycle - so I think it's a good Democratic Strategy

Bottomline - the only Promise that needs to be made by any Candidate running for the US Congress is that they will acknowledge all the Crimes & Lies by Trump and they will insure - that if Elected - they will conduct a Impeachment Trial in the US House the likes of which few throughout the History have ever witnessed and then Convict and Impose Sentences in the US Senate the likes of which few throughout History have ever suffered

 

BTW - thanks for the opportunity to comment on this thread - ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

 


As usual. nothing but a lot of spin, innuendo, half-truths, lies and name calling in a WEAK attempt to cover up the FACT that the left has NOTHING to offer voters.

 

BTW - thanks for proving my case - ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha (that was one more than you because I'm OBVIOUSLY having the last laugh.)


Ridding the Country of the Scourge of Trump and Company will not only be a Gift that keeps on giving - if will be the Greatest Act of Patriotism any Cycle of American Voters has ever Contributed to the their Country..........................

 

 


Great platform. 

 

Trump says he wants lower taxes, border secuity, infrastructure rebuilding, immigration reform, fair trade agreements, etc, etc, and the best the left can do is "let's get rid of him." Of course, since they're against all those thing, I understand.  They just can't get elected on a do-nothing, get-rid-of him platform.


I listed many of the Things Trump has promised and the Current Tally...................his average isn;t even average...................................

 

Regardless - no President should be removed because he didn't keep all his promises

 

But Every President should be Removed if they fail to Honor the Oath they Swore

 

This President has committed Obstruction of Justice on a Daily Baisis at best and at worst he's a Traitor

 

Those are the Reasons for Removal

 

 


And yet, AS ALWAYS, you have absolutely ZERO proof of any of your charges.  It's just the USUAL spin, innuendo, half-truths and lies which is what democrats now rely on because they nothing to offer the voters.You do make a good point about people being removed from office for not keeping promises which is EXACTLY why the party of no should be voted out for getting in the way of progress.  Of course, on the other hand, if every politician who didn't keep his promises was removed from office, there wouldn't be any politicians left in Washington.

 

By the way, according to first analysis of the Obama presidency by historians, which I previously referenced here, he was a no-nothing president and Trump has already accomplished more.


Proof in a case that involves multiple people in multiple Countries - Counter-intelligence & Treason and is unattainable by rank and file citizens - thats why we have multiple Congressional Investigations - a Special Council - and multiple State Investigations

 

Be Patient - and make sure you come back to visit when the Results are in

 

 


Again, AS ALWAYS, you have absolutely ZERO proof of any of your charges.  It's just the USUAL spin, innuendo, half-truths and lies which is what democrats now rely on because they nothing to offer the voters.  You do nothing more than post spin, innuendo, half-truths and LIES because YOU KNOW dems have NOTHING to offer voters.  If they did we'd be hearing it instead of all the nonsense.


Asked and Answered

 

Remember Trumps Major Claim - You need to Drain the Swamp before you can get anything done is Washington.................................

 

Impeaching Trump and putting him and his Co-conspirators in Jail will achieve Trumps very astutue observation and send another Message like the one that was sent to Nixon and Clinton

 

Presidents are not above the Law
