39. The press and the voting machines are so compromised
I can't believe people actually believe this strategy has any value whatsoever. Even the a majority of the freeps think abortion should be legal.

The only battles we've won with these guys is when Dems stood by the core values of the Dem party. Reproductive choice is non-negotiable IMHO.
