As Obama said, GO VOTE! (Although I say it is GOOD to get mad. But being mad isn't enough. VOTE!)

There are sooooooo many posts about how rotten and horrible Traitor Don is. And he is. He is rotten to the very core. But the cure is VOTING. Go vote, and take as many people with you as possible. And campaign. Even a half hour here or there phonebanking, and it can often be done from home. And make small donations. And write letters to the editor. And talk to friends, family, and neighbors in all ways (personal discussions, social media, whatever).

There are many reasons why we are in the mess we are in. Sure the Dems should have done MUCH better campaigning in recent cycles. Sure Hillary's campaign needed to do better. Sure Russia, sure Comey Letter, sure third party candidates, sure the media normalizing Trump... BUT, one of the biggest reasons this scumbag won was because too many people DID NOT VOTE. Simple as that. They decided the asshole could not elected so just stayed home, or because Obama was not on the ballot they stayed home, and some just stayed home because they falsely were convinced that Hillary was "just as bad." Now we are paying the price in a huge way.

So, tell people not to complain. Go VOTE! And vote for DEMOCRATS UP AND DOWN THE TICKET! And take ten people with you.

Obama said it best after our big victories last fall in VA, NJ, and elsewhere: "This is what happens when you go and vote!"

If Traitor Don shit in his fans' mouths they would tell you it was ice cream.

If Traitor Don shit in his die hard base's mouth they would call it ice cream. They would say his farts smell like roses. IN this year's elections we can't waste time on the truly braindead.

What we can do is work to win back the independents and moderates who actually voted for this piece of shit because they wanted "change." And many did. And get back people who didn't vote at all in 2016 or voted 3rd party. Have a two-pronged message, one attack message and one affirmative message saying what we will do instead:

#1: Trump and the GOP are totally corrupt, traitorous, out to enrich their rich owners and no none else, and are out to kill your healthcare, your Medicare, your Medicaid, your Social Security, your education, and your planet.

#2: We will create good jobs for everyone everywhere the right way with middle class economics; will make sure everyone has good affordable healthcare; will make sure everyone has good affordable education; will make sure everyone has a secure retirement; will save the planet for our children and grandchildren; will make sure the Russians do not attack our elections; and will return SANITY and PATRIOTISM to a government that will belong to EVERYONE and not just the rich and powerful!!


Say it 1000 times. Say it EVERY time you refer to him in writing or verbally with ANYONE. One thing progressives need to learn to do is CLEAR, SHORT, STRONG, SIMPLE messaging.

Well, leave it to the Orange Headed Shit Bag to just dig himself in even DEEPER. HAHAHAHAH!!

He is OBVIOUSLY LYING over the "wouldn't" vs. "would" thing. Just re-watch the tape. The fucker knew just what he was saying.

He continued to insist that "many others" besides Russia were involved.

He continued to blame Obama and attack Clinton.

His is a lying piece of narcissistic SHIT who must be LOCKED UP!!

Trump STILL saying that "others" besides Russia were involved. What a piece of SHIT!

Did you hear that?

Also, continuing his whine about "no collusion" and continuing to blame Obama and attack Clinton. This was WORSE than what he did the other day with Putin.




No long speeches. No long boring explanations. ONE SIMPLE CLEAR MESSAGE.

People like Strzok and Avenatti are SO WONDERFULLY REFRESHING! Just GREAT!!

ONE reason the Dem Party lost 1000 legislative seats and every level of government and every federal branch of government is because for FAR too long FAR too many Dems have been jelly spined WEAKLINGS.

Weakness is political DEATH. Lack of clear and compelling messaging is political DEATH.

It is time for the Dem Party to re-grow its BALLS! (And I mean that metaphorically of course as I know MANY women with more BALLS than many men. I count Maxine Waters among them and Elizabeth Warren.)

Today Strzok SLAMMED those GOP ASSHOLES and so does Avenatti. Just beautiful. Enough of the pathetic weakness. Body slam these disgusting corrupt scumbag GOP assholes!

*** Also, credit to Dems on the committee who put on THEIR balls for this one and punched the GOP SCUMBAGS pretty damn hard. Good! More more more!

Kavanaugh will most likely be confirmed. It's what happens when you fail to WIN ELECTIONS.

Don't like Trump? Win elections.

Don't like a radical right wing stacked Supreme Court? Win elections.

Don't like the radical right wing controlling every level of government? Win elections.

I'm a lifelong Democrat and have burned enough shoe leather working on campaigns to sink a battleship and have burned holes in my pockets donating. But the party has run SHITTY campaigns, plain and simple, over the last several cycles. We lost every branch and level of government. 1000 state legislative seats. Why? No message. No clarity. No strength. No good leadership.

I will say it has been better in VA and NJ in 2017, with state ballot measures, and in state level special elections. But we can't just be anti-Trump going into the fall elections. Yes, beating the shit out of that foul barrel of monkey spunk polluting the White House is PART of it, but we also need a clear simple compelling affirmative message, to speak clear and strong, to be STRONG in general, and to run on an agenda that starts and ends with GOOD HIGH PAYING JOBS FOR EVERYONE EVERYWHERE and GOOD AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE FOR EVERYONE EVERYWHERE. Most people DO NOT vote on abstractions. They want something tangible for their vote, and that means the middle class American dream of a good job with good wages, healthcare security, good education and training, a decent home, a good vehicle, a vacation every year, and secure retirement. Tell people very clearly how we will make sure they have these things, and we win.

And learn the hell how to frame a message. Start by NOT saying "conservative." God I HATE that. Call them "radical right wing." That party is NOT "conservative." It is radical!

Not happy about the Supreme Court? Thank those who didn't vote or voted 3rd party.

Elections have consequences. People were told, and told, and told, and told what would happen if this rotten thing now polluting the White House got into office. Sure, Clinton didn't run the best possible campaign and there was Russian interference and the Comey letter. Still, we had an obvious monster running for President of the U.S. and we had Clinton, a well qualified and sane candidate. And still MILLIONS voted for Johnson and Stein, and millions more who voted for Obama didn't even vote at all.

Elections have consequences folks. Elections have consequences.

So, the most important thing now is to get very active for the midterm elections and vote out as many Republicans as possible at every level of government. CRUSH that party at the voting booth. That's what we have to do. Simple as that.

In Maine in 2016 we passed a referendum initiative for Ranked Choice Instant Runoff Voting (RCV). The establishment in the legislature (overwhelmingly the Republicans) attacked it along with several other of our progressive referendums. They even passed a disgusting bill to essentially repeal it (again, mostly done by the Republicans but with a few Democratic establishment enablers). So what did we do? In the middle of a freezing winter last winter we gathered 80,000 signatures and put it back on the ballot freezing the repeal bill so we could use RCV in the June 12th primaries which we did with great success and we killed the repeal bill and voted to keep RCV in place. Political action works folks. Do it. I have been right in the thick of it and will be again in the fall elections making calls, knocking on doors, and making small donations. Get involved and bring people with you.
