If Dems dont get the House or Senate

In 2018, Trump and his cronies in the Republican Party will become embolden and say that the country agrees in the direction we are going. I can imagine Trump will be more antagonistic towards Dems further on his favorite platform twitter. This will pave the way for his re-election campaign in 2020 winning easily if the midterms go in the wrong direction.

This is a worst case scenerio but I have faith that we are going to win in 18 and stop Trumpís awful agenda for good.

3. That scenario spells the end of the human species.

So yes, let's all pull the other way harder than we ever have, because it's all of our lives on the line.

5. If the republicans

Hold both houses of congress...Say good bye to SSI, Medicare, Medicaid and the safetynet.
Say good bye to all workers rights, anti-trust and consumer protections.
Say good bye to the clean air, water acts and good bye to our national parks.
Say good bye to public education
Say hello to public forced religious indoctrination.

If the people don't vote these fuckers out at least 70 years of liberal progress will be flushed down the goddamn toilet within the next 3 years.

6. We must overwhelm them or they will cheat. It will be harder to do so if we have numbers.

But if they somehow win anyway, we must fight in anyway we can.

7. it would be horrible , but there really isn't much we could do

other than what we have to do .

foreign allies will need to take up the leadership and try to neutralize trump as much as possible. take the climate change for example. foreign allies, blue states and other blue areas and individuals will have to do what they can.

9. If democrats don't take back congress in 2018, its our fault...when we vote, we win

what we should be discussing is what each one of us doing to make that happen instead of the constant complaining of trump this and republican that. We need to focus on what are each doing and going to do to get democrats elected at every level of govt.

conservatives took over this country because they got their base out to vote in every election while democrats sat on their asses...

11. Their churches tell them they must always vote....

You know, Gods, Guns, Gays,...blah blah...
This time our black, Hispanic and liberal white churches, synagogues, mosques should do the same.
Stress Trumps bigotry and incompetence and how he must have a check and balance in Congress.
There is no longer any pretense of separation of church and state in conservative churches.
So, we might as well do what they do and advocate for social justice from the pulpit.

10. They know theyll lose House/trying to save Senate

Best impartial place to keep checking is the Cook Report.
Dems still expected to win House, just by how much?
Senate seems out of reach because of numbers Dems must defend.
However, two things from yesterday show GOP worried.
They talked current House member into changing his mind to face Dem Heitkamp in NDakota.
They are trying to get incumbent Corker in Tenn to not retire.

Tea leaves are showing that Dems can flip Nevada and maybe Arizona GOP held Senate seats.
Dems only need to flip two and hold all incumbents to take majority.
Or flip three while losing only one incumbent.
GOP think they might also be able to oust McCaskill in Mo. But, she has a weak GOP opponent.
If Fla Gov Scott decides to run, he would be tough opponent for Dem incumbent Nelson.
