Ignore the divide and rule and vote these criminals out now.

3. You are so right.


After hearing Nunes’ Pep talk (that he had no idea was being recorded...tee hee), it is clear what their marching orders will be. Win at all cost. Nothing is off the table. He said it all when he said, “THIS all goes away.” I bet his eyes were as big as saucers when he said that, too.

They will throw everything out there including the kitchen sink to try to distract and scare us. They will lay it all on the line for THEIR party members who may be getting wishy-washy after a year and a half of tRump. What is it that they say in rasslin’? No holds barred.

We need tunnel vision. Eyes on the prize kind of thinking. Don’t get sidetracked into pointless arguments or time wasters. And vote like your life and liberty depend on it. But only because they do!

25. Sign up to go door-to-door. Join a phone/voice campaign.

And talk to every neighbor and retailer about voting.

Voting won't increase without an effort, especially from activist leadership circles like DU.

6. Exactly. What candidates say now about Nancy Pelosi

has no weight at all. That will be decided when the next Congress goes into session.

GOTV!

8. Yep. Answer is simple: VOTE, Dammit!

If we turn out in the kinds of numbers our side has, then it WON’T be close enough to steal.

But the sheer numbers have to overwhelm. We have to overwhelm the bad guys. Overwhelm the opposition. Overwhelm the cheaters and schemers. Overwhelm the freakin’ Russians, forcryingoutloud!!!

But we CAN do this. There are MORE OF US than the GOP has, and their numbers are shrinking, as is. That’s the best and most reliable, and most invincible weapon we have. OUR numbers. That are growing and expanding. The growth and expansion is on the Left. NOT on the so-called “right” (which actually is anything but right). The numbers and the expansion are all with us DEMOCRATS. NOT with the GOP.

And this is stupid-easy. All we have to do is SHOW UP!!! Just SHOW the fuck UP!

7. Every candidate and pundit should answer it this way.

"We are focused on winning the midterm elections, and will discuss what happens after we win the majority at the appropriate time."

12. You're sure right on this one.

Let's not count ANY chickens before they are hatched. We need to get out the vote FIRST, flip both Houses FIRST.

Then we can argue.

You know, Malaise, I suspect some of the people generating this idiotic controversy about whether Pelosi should or should not be SoH are maybe a little...Russian.

So, folks, let's not fall prey to some Russian in St. Petersburg who is getting paid to undermine this nation.

Vote STRAIGHT BLUE.

13. Our candidates, if they're smart, will simply say. . .

. . .that Pelosi or whoever will be Speaker is NOT a priority with them OR their constituents right now.

Their first priorities are what their constituents need/desire.

18. Lay aside differences and dislikes. Vote a straight and complete ticket for

DEMOCRATS✔❗❗

Restoring our way of life and nation's overall well-being is crucial. We who are present in this point of time are the ONES who must do it. It's on us. Do whatever you're capable of doing no matter how small or insignificant you may think it is. It will all count. Yes!!

From my heart to y'all's:

19. I have long wondered

Why no-one has either produced a documentary or written a book about Trump's un-documented crooked grandfather, who came over here in the late 1800's primarily because he was thrown out of his own country, and it seems that he was also a pretty big con man.
He was into crime, prostution etc.
And now to Donald, who is throwing asylum seekers out, putting little children in cages which will probably affect them for life.
Of course Melania's parents just became citizens -pretty fast work!

26. Perhaps something may be in the works given the 'notoriety'

of the 'illustrious' occupant we now have in the offal office.

Daily I am mind boggled to comprehend what continues to be foisted upon us as a nation.

20. moreover, if Pelosi is not Speaker again, whatever Dem does get elected

will be demonized just as relentlessly, and probably even more hatefully, because that person will be

1. Supporting Dem chairs to investigate the mountain of Trump corruption
2. Shepparding Dem legislation and rollbacks of the GOP tax-cuts
3. Protecting Mueller

Any Dem Speaker will be head and shoulders above Spineless Ryan

35. Standard response from Dem candidates should be.

"I'm just focused on getting elected and representing my district in Congress. We'll address the speaker's position once I'm sworn in."

Republicans are so good at staying on message. Dems need to work on that.
