Election AD ideas to GOTV / Elect Dems

I've been obsessing over a national ad campaign by the DNC/Other left leaning organizations in the run up to these mid-terms to both 1) re-energize the base and GOTV and 2) remind everyone why this election is so important.

A few points that I believe the DNC should hammer leading up to Nov 7th:

- make an ad with audio sharing tens/hundreds of DT's unstable and divisive remarks while emphasizing the need for Checks and Balances. DT has praised Kim Jong Un, floated ideas of using nuclear weapons, bragged about shooting people and not losing voters, ran to the side of white supremacists in VA, insulting McCain, and on and on and on. We have to remind voters that DT is insane and divisive.

- make an ad focusing on the struggles and efforts minorities went through to strengthen their right to vote, re-emphasizing John Lewis' remarks about his tribulations during the civil rights era. And focus on re-introduced efforts to suppress voter registration in places like North Dakota and Georgia.

- make an ad stressing the failures of this administration over the last two years, including but not limited to an $800B deficit this past year during significant economic expansion, tearing families apart and using children as pawns in states on the southern border, trade wars impact and the subsequent farming subsidies attempting to help those that are impacted, jobs growth less than that of Obama's during his last two years, the complete lack of movement for infrastructure projects.

We are seeing an increase in DT's, and the GOP Congress', approval ratings lately. WE MUST REMIND THE PUBLIC OF THE CRAP WE'VE HAD TO WADE THROUGH OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS.

1. Welcome to DU

I disagree about running any ads that give DT a megaphone, negative or otherwise. This election is not about DT. It is about electing Democrats, getting out our vote.

2. Was considering that

and you bring up a great point. DT should be treated as the clown that he is and ignored. But it seems like a growing number of people are becoming accustomed to his antics. I'm definitely torn on making this about DT, which can energize the left since he's such an awful figure.

The idea of 'Checks and Balances' really resonates with potential voters. It's difficult to avoid the subject of TOTUS when emphasizing the importance of having a safeguard against his lunacy in the form of a Dem controlled Congress.

4. YES!

Can include other like "You wouldn't let your parents choose your opinions/clothes/friends, why let them choose your laws?"

Show parents trying to dress their 20-something kids, or put on awful music, or lecture them on 'traditional values'.

5. You Are Spot-On!

Well said, MIM!!!

I have been waiting for somebody, anybody to put on an ad that reminds everyone of the obvious lies, failures and outrageous acts foisted on this county by DJT and his minions.

I would be more than happy to donate to whichever organization can put together any ad that reminds Americans what the Orange Turdpile has done. It would be motivational gold!

Somebody --- Moveon, DCCC, Tom Steyer -- anyone.... please jump on this. There's still time!

Peace.
