57. My only wish is that they would have awakened from the stupor in 2016, not 2020. Republicans own it.

The Republicans got what they had been working for over the last forty plus years: A Fascist Bastard who they had believed would at long last destroy our democracy. Their vision was and continues to be a dictatorial presidency. The real tragedy is that we failed to fully grasp the reality and ignored the warnings of numerous voices of the seriousness of their intent.

I hope that if the Democrats regain control that they will address the critical need for the implementation of laws that will prevent a repeat of future catastrophe for reawakening. The power and trust that the constitution puts in the hands of a president are far too easily abused as we have experienced by the Trump administration. The situation was allowed to intensify dating from the Nixon administration as Republican presidents have increasingly abused the trust they were given. It is not a new story but one written and rewritten over thousands of years.

As Lincoln said if you wish to measure a man's character, give him power. The power of the presidency must not be left to trust alone as has been clearly shown by this administration and the Republican Party whose members totally failed us. They are so consumed with the lust for power that they have not only refused to hold Trump accountable but have engaged in attacks on the fundamental and most powerful democratic principle: Fair elections. They are without reserved presently conspiring to rig the next election. We must react now to prevent if from the destroying the nation and transforming it into a dictatorship. The Republican Party is the enemy and must be either reformed or destroyed. This will not be an easy task. They have developed a massive propaganda machine that is poisoning the minds of millions of our citizens who are being tragically deceived. They have been convinced that they are the guardians of the Republic and are failing to realize they nothing more than pawns who are in reality the victims of their own destruction.

38. So we need to learn from them, NOW, how to fight.

Because yes, after trump has left the scene and they think the coast is clear to go back to their "I-hate-the-government"/tax-cuts-for-the-rich-and-screw-everybody-else policies, will they? Or have they REALLY seen the light? Or if that's asking too much, have they at least recognized there IS another kind of light to be seen and maybe not completely ruled out?

Guess time and further deeper trump failure will tell.

I'm glad they're on our side, but they're gonna have to earn my trust after this is over. I'm not gonna just go running toward them with my arms flung wide open.

53. Precisely.

I have a rule of thumb about political supporters. When they "jump the shark", you had better keep your eyes on them as well as the opposition. 4 short months is a long time.
I think there is something fundamentally wrong with this ad. I feel as if my intelligence has been discounted. Usually that indicates that someone has overestimated theirs.

64. THIS is why the republicans win.

Smart, with political savvy. Can produce slick ads that resonate.

Sadly, the democratic attempts can't hold a candle to them. Why is that? We have smart, savvy ad people that can make slick ads... Don't we? At most ours are merely adequate.

Americans have short attention spans, so you have to grab them and keep them. The ads need to be MOVING, making people see the stark contrasts. The Lincoln Project ads do just that.

I appreciate all the help we can get. But we need to win because WE can put forth a reasonable and believable argument for Biden, OTHER than "he is NOT donald trump". I do NOT want to have to thank the republicans for defeating their own candidate. (Although if that is what happens, I will GLADLY accept the results.)

WE could, and should do better.

I remember when I was in Romania, the old communist propaganda I saw from the Ceausescu era called him Tovarasul (with the diacritical markings, it was pronounced Tovarashul, with the final -ul suffix denoting the definite article) Nicolae Ceausescu.

Just thinking about it. Wondering. Hoping that it's real.

Get everyone onboard with these great repuglicans that want to save the USofA from the donald. These repuglicans who didn't repudiate the dotard before he was nominated and elected.

What if they are later exposed as being a false media operation and all the liberals that jumped on board are shown to be gullibles?

Who do we trust?

Their campaign seems so slick and seemingly coming out of nowhere.

AWFUL! Unless you speak Russian, the subtitles are necessary. Unfortunately... the non-stop motion and flashing and animation of Russian Cyrillic letters are EXCEEDINGLY DISTRACTING when trying to read the English captions.

It was a great idea, in theory... but in practice, it "looses a lot in the translation" (so to speak.)

Zero stars.
