Democrats have been handed midterm victory on a plate.

Kavanaugh is the most unpopular Supreme Court nominee of all time, with a history of extreme political positions and misogyny not seen before, since Trump. We need to build on the anger and outrage that is out there.

The fact that Trump and Republicans have seen a boost in support is only because they are winning the propaganda war and influencing those who are not paying a lot of attention.

We have a month to get our messaging across in a way that is not drowned out by the Republican lies. Democrats seeking election cannot be passive, but must capitalize on values that are alien to both Kavanaugh and to Trump. The contrast between the values of Democrats and Republicans has not greater for generations, and most people support most Democratic positions. I believe we need to make those differences clear. We have been handed a blue wave. It is ours to lose.

1. Just vote. Just vote!!!!! I don't like predictions of certainty.

We have a monster to slow down and then stop in 25 months. That should be all that we pay attention to. Ignore polls, VOTE!!!!!!

5. Great opportunity, to turn the tide.

On the optimistic side, trump usually produces big problems for himself and his 'cons - and he has a whole month to come through!

7. Only if everyone - and I mean every last eligible person - votes!

The other side is a bunch of lairs and cheaters who can only be defeated by an overwhelming turnout.

This is not the time for excuses!
