I fear our campaign strategy

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the General Discussion forum).

I understand that health care and infrastructure and education and the rest should be our main topics, but...

if we ignore taking on Trump I fear we will lose. My #1 reason itching to vote is to remove a traitor from office.

I use Joe Biden as an example. He came out of the gates like gang busters when he announced he was running. He immediately attacked Trump in his video and he immediately rose in the polls. Since then Joe has relatively gone silent, and I understand he was behind the 8 ball with the Ukraine mess, but he should have taken that issue on immediately.

I may be wrong in my assessment and please let me know that I am wrong. I believe that taking on Trump should be #1 on our candidates agenda. I feel it's what voters are waiting for.

1. I am with you

I think we need to bring out strongest candidate and get behind him or her like the cult is behind their dear leader,weather we wanted them to be the nominee or not.MA would have been excellent ,but he is in prison.

3. The country feels "Trump fatigue".

Most voters aren’t going to pull the lever to witness four more years of his shit.

5. What is your #1 issue for wanting to vote?

What makes you want to get out and vote today?

7. It's gonna snow tonight and travel tomorrow will be harder

Seriously, i think the point in beating Trump is about policy. Trump still has no healthcare plan, no infrastructure plan .... The “I alone can fix it “ guy has broken foreign policy, national security, rung up the national debt and we have nothing to show for it. Seems to me we can speak to issues in a way that nails him.

6. "Our" campaign strategy?

I would share your concern if I thought we actually had a campaign strategy, but it appears that you are unfamiliar with the late, great Will Rogers who said:

"I am not a member of an organized political party. I am a Democrat."

It was true then, and it remains true today.

9. What about asking "Why is Mitch McConnell still there"?

Democrats in the House have passed over 400 bills dealing with healthcare, infrastructure, voting rights, labor rights and minimum wage, etc., and they are now sitting on Mitch McConnell's desk in the Senate.

Democrats HAVE enacted their agenda but it sits in the Senate DOA.

How about posting ways on getting KY to remove McConnell from office this November?

11. And if it weren't for Perez (and many others) 2018's takeover of the House wouldn't have happened.

12. I do think most issues are drowned out in the present environment.

Trump and his lies must be addressed constantly. Otherwise, they will overwhelm and destroy us. We cannot be the band on the Titanic.
