Regardless of what they were, I will work with them for now, all to get rid of a more dangerous enemy.

their way up to the November vote. They are doing far more damage to Trump that Democratic superpacs. After we get rid of Trump, hopefully they keep going after his republican sycophants that are still in office.

45. Forget about the racist white people. They are lost. Let 'em die of the virus.

The fence sitters and middle of the roaders, and those who didnít bother to vote in 2016 are the targets.

Where are the Democratic ads? The few Biden ads Iíve seen are tepid in comparison.

I canít believe that Democratic sympathetic ad firms have no one with talent like the Lincoln Project.

We may have to thank republicans for defeating the turd, come November.

21. Their audience is other Republicans

they aim to plant enough doubt in enough Republican voters' minds to til the election away from Trump and his supporters. These powerful ads should help influence moderate and nonpolitical GOP voters in suburban swing districts.

They've been targeting their ads to select audiences in select cities. This one needs to go nationwide, because everyone must know that this is going on, and what it leads to.

I am tingling all over, they have totally captured my deep concern about our doom if he manages to steal the 2020 election, whether through violence or voter suppression and vote hacking.

We have to vote in droves, need a #BLUETSUNAMI to overcome his brownshirt goons who he has promised will be at the polls to prevent libruls from kicking out their hero and Fuhrer in waiting.

What happened to the principled Republicans who had some sort of value for the Constitution, the Rule of Law and Civil Liberties. I'm glad to see some of them must be advising on this campaign. The Trump cult Republican party is hopeless and horrible. But there used to be people with whom I could disagree and still respect. Thank god they are using their voices.

39. Voter intimidation for 2020

Trump's attempt to stay in power, this may be used for voter suppression and intimidation especially in poor and minority neighborhoods.

We've already seen record numbers of citizens removed from the voting rolls. This could be a continuation of disenfranchisement through violence.

A veteran in his 50's simply stood there while Trump's Gestapo beat him, breaking his hand and repeatedly pepper spraying him.

The Govenor should not ask them to leave, she should tell them to leave.

56. Voting ain't going do Shit. We need a Coup right now

What the heck is wrong with Americans??? Haven't we learned about how Hitler came to power?

Loved the video, till it was close to the end.. The solution is to make sure to vote??? Are you kidding me???

Maybe I missed a post or video about it, but Where are the Veterans for Peace members (who aren't protesting in Portland already) ?

The high ranking Veterans for Peace, former State Dept Heads, Generals, Intelligence Officers, Dept of Justice heads, etc.. should be forming a Coup. They should be headed to the White House, the Justice Dept, and CDC.
They should physically remove Trump and his administration and replace Trump with Rep Pelosi and former common sense officials for the other positions, and Dept Heads. And immediately have a group remove the top CDC person and replace them with former CDC...get rid of any residue of Trump.

I'm a piece activist so I don't want any military control but would love Vets for Peace to come in and clean house.

No, Voting isn't gonna get, and it is a joke to think it will.

I wish ret. Lt General Russel Honore and ret. Col Ann Wright would stage a Coup tomorrow.
