In the 2018 elections. Democrats should not shy away from strongly using the legitimate fear that Trump and Congressional Republicans are generating in most Americans, with their assaults on all Americans' ability to have affordable and meaningful health care.
As Maya Angelou said, "When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time." Trump voters have already displayed that they are devoted to him despite reality and facts. Believe them, they mean it.
MSNBC wants to pretend that its moneymaking self-interest is best masked as being "fair and balanced", finding a weak excuse to go after Democrats after criticizing Trump and Republicans for two straight months (wow, what endurance, that's the lifespan of two houseflies!).
To address the health hazards that watching Trump's speech tonight represents, such as "Screamer's Throat", "Tv Puncher's Knuckle" and "Exploding Head Syndrome", PlanetPOV will be hosting a sane and live chat.
DNC, don't chase after Trump voters. Instead, use the Field of Dreams approach, "If you build it, they will come."
If 2016 was personified as a human being, it would be more often referred to as an unbelievable asshole who would not be welcome back even if it came to our door with a giant box of chocolates in one hand and an eternal youth potion in the other.
As the cliche goes, the definition of insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result. It's also been the practice of Democratic Party establishment, on and off for many years.
It won't just be civilians defying and challenging Trump and the GOP Congress. The LAPD has already stated that they will not cooperate with Trump's plan to deport up to 3 million undocumented immigrants. Military leaders have vowed not to follow orders that are against the law including Trump's wanting to bring back waterboarding and other torture. And this is just the beginning.
Elizabeth Warren is everything Hillary needed to be but couldn't be to win this election. She is authentic, inspirational, a woman of the people, sympathetic, has an enthusiastic following in the Dem base and is a powerful and energizing speaker. She is a fighter for the regular American worker who feels left behind or neglected by their government/society, the very voters Trump used to win election because they felt they had nowhere else to go.
It could be an early night if things go strongly for Hillary or a long night if it doesn't and there's no better way to watch the returns roll in than right here in the company of your fellow Planeteers in our live chat.
