Throw the bums out!

As good a slogan as any.

Most people understand who the "bums" are, in my opinion.

It's time to clean house and put in a new government in the Senate and the White House.

It's time for a slogan that can synopsize the current political reality in the fewest words possible that people can understand.

2. "bums" seems too civil, too kind. Turn the word "thug" back on them as in...

ReTHUGlicans.

Yes, part of me cringes after writing that, but I am damned angry and we have gained nothing by taking the high road--with all due apologies and respect to Michelle Obama.

6. I suggest the Pug Party -it plays off Thug without being too overt+ rhymes with ugh

Everyone will know who we mean and it is a nice counterpoint to the Pugs calling us the "Democrat" Party instead of Democratic

We need a 3-4 letter word to fit in headlines anyway and GOP doesn't seem to fit as that party has changed so much. By using Pug instead of Pub, it keeps the "G" of GOP -giving it historical weight.

A new phrase for the Urban Dictionary could be "getting pugged." (which plays off mugged) This could refer to stealing an election or perhaps the Pugs getting candidates placed in office by any means necessary in order to destroy our institutions or government agencies.

America got pugged when the Pugs got Tillerson into the state department to destroy it or de Dos into the Dept of Education or Carson into HUD or when they got Kavanaugh onto the SC to politicize it.

8. Make great mascots! Call them Mitch & Susan-gives the elephant a rest

and an opportunity to have its image rehabilitated, and indicates that there is no real intent to insult.

Barking dogs!

4. I'll go with the flow!

Controlling women's bodies are their main goal. I'm not fooled about "free" from abortion bullshit. If they truly believed in that they would not be taking away women's health insurance (prenatal care).

Satan . . .

5. Their goal is to legalize rape and outlaw abortion, so bad guys can reproduce more efficiently.
