2. Guess So.
I actually find it to be quite fitting. It is a battleground right now and we should be preparing for political battle. The time for games is over. It is time to take to the streets and win.

Battleground America is perfectly fine from where I sit.

5. The "game"
is called an "election."

The War In the Homeland imagery is brutish and violent. Like the times.

7. And Right Now, That 'Election' Is A Battle.
And we are in the midst of the battleground. Time to fight. Time to organize. Time to take no prisoners. It is time to win.

This is the battle for America. This election would be ill served to be described in soft terms. I have no problem whatsoever with a strong and urgent phrase of 'Battleground America' as that essentially is exactly what it is.

3. It's never "Democracy in America" or even "Yet Another Election"...
... it's always got to be a war with these guys. War sells.

4. America is a "Battleground" not even a Hitlerian "Homeland"
