Message framing! Progressives/Democrats usually stink at it, and the perfect example is the insistence on using "conservative" to describe Trump and today's GOP members.
They are not "conservative."
They are "Right Wing." They are "Right Wing Radicals." They are "Right Wing Extremists."
Pick one. But they are certainly not "conservative." Eisenhower was "conservative." George H.W. Bush was "conservative."
Commentators David Brooks and George Will are "conservative." But not Trump and not the overwhelming bulk of today's GOP politicians, and not their tribal followers.
Enough of the lame, outdated, outmoded, and very weak use of "conservative" to describe today's GOP.
If you have had it with politicians in Augusta (mainly LePage and the Republicans) attacking our progressive referendums, then please help with the vote in June to restore Ranked Choice Voting. In fact, they are attacking the entire referendum process.
Even as we speak LePage and his right wing minions in Augusta are doing all they can to block MaineCare Expansion which just passed in November with almost 60% of the vote.
We need OpEds and Letters to the Editor.
