What you see in these RW Republican politicians on most issues is pretty consistent support for allowing the deaths of others to poverty, guns, wars, old age, etc.. Their "pro-life" position on abortion is an anomaly...and that's because to them, this issue isn't really about religious beliefs or compassion, It's about something else far more crass and cynical. It's about power.
The Democratic nominee for President in 2020 should consider a "New Frontier"-type campaign, not only because it is a proven path to success but because, as President Kennedy said about the fight for racial equality, "It is the right thing to do."
For a little perspective on 2018, we invite you to take a stroll back through some of the events of this year through a gallery of graphics that were on PlanetPOV. Enjoy!

"Mass shootings are bad, they're really, really bad and we need to do something to stop them that makes more sense than taking away the guns that mass killers always use," Trump explained.

"The best way to fight fire is with fire," NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre explained. "So we are also advocating that fire departments around the country replace the water hoses on their firetrucks with flamethrowers."
The latest NRA propaganda just needs to be shot down quickly and effectively as it stalks this country. Everyone in the country should be armed intellectually with the facts, then the bad guys with the guns can be stopped by the good guys with consciences and solutions.
Is this part of a pattern? Are more Americans becoming mentally unstable or are they just acting out more on their derangement? Has insanity become mainstreamed?
Gun violence in America is so out of control now, that homicide by firearm is an every day occurrence. It's gotten so bad now, that the shootings where only two or three people are killed, are not even front page news on the national scale.
