If Democrats cave on the wall, expect a headline like this in the near future:

Trump shuts government asking for repeal of Obamacare: Says, like Wall, it was his main campaign promise.

God, I hope Nancy can keep her troops in line.

Just want to put the power of the President in perspective.

Constitution gives the power to the Congress to write and pass the laws and override a presidential veto.

Concerning the budget and legislation, the Constitution gives the President power to veto...That's it.

The message needs to go to the GOP in the Senate and House....they are responsible for supporting Trump and Miller's Shutdown.

You can list Trump's lies here: I'll start.

1. Trumped changed the plans from concrete to steel because the Democrats wanted that. Jeesus.

Trump's ability to drive the news needs to be countered. Now.

He'll have the nightly news people with him on Thursday as he visits the border. He'll have his skin head buddies backing him up, literally.

Armed Services or some such congressional committee needs to immediately hold hearings about Border security and the role fencing and walls might play. The hearings need to be open and on TV. Now.

Depending on people to feel bad about people not getting paid and losing their jobs is not going to work. The GOP and Trump do not care about people. Those that might care will be looking to the Democrats to cave in order to get them back to work.

The visuals are key, and a hearing with experts explaining how ridiculous a border wall would be as opposed to more up to date methods could get the conversation back to some grounded reality.

I'm not that optimistic about where this wall fight is heading.

You say you are interested in choosing the best Dem candidate for 2020....

I suggest you keep researching the possibilities and hone up on their bios....

Here's the first of the major contenders to announce...take 30 minutes to see what you think.

VIDEO HAS BEEN BLOCKED OR SOMETHING: You'll need to google this interview to get the address or right click on the pic below to get URL.

This is Rachel Maddow's interview with Elizabeth Warren.

Personally I think she brings some needed persistence to the fight.

Gofundme Trump's Wall vs. money from Nancy:

$18,700,000 vs. $0

Gotta love it.
