Studies show emotions sway voters more then facts. Sane folk are losing the emotion game due to M$M

1% propaganda. They are greedy and will not go easily into the Night - they will drag the rest of us with them if they can - they are all Sociopaths.

Until we recognize that groups like TLP and Midas Touch are showing us the way to win EMOTIONS not just minds, we will continue to struggle with just appealing to peeps ' intellectual' side, as it seems most Democratic campaigns try to do...until the Rethugs scare the indies then the cycle of negative and ineffective response ads begin...

Study the past election cycles and you will SEE this.

We Dems have a really good chance here - TFG and the Hate Party appeal to all the really EVIL emotions, the crazy ones.

The old effectively cold calculating GOP ad strategists ARE NOW ON OUR SIDE.

We need to make use of their talents while we can.



So when doing GOTV, go for their emotions, their hearts, not just their minds.

Roevember does this. 1/6 Hearings do this. Public distaste of TFG's maniacal misogynistic racist speeches play to this. MTG's and Boebert's moronic rants play to this. Disgust of QANON plays to this. Neo-Nazism plays to this. BLM plays to this - (yes, it really does help Democrats emotionally).

We Democrats know how to win. We have the issues on our side to win.

We just need to get out there and work hard to have the largest Midterm Cycle turnout EVAH and WE THE PEOPLE will save the Constitution.

Easy Peasy.

BrooklynDad_Defiant FTW: Kyrsten Sinema - Finally gets some unity

BrooklynDad_Defiant!☮️ @mmpadellan ·
LMFAOOO, a new poll has found that Kyrsten Sinema is despised by Democrats, Independents, and Republicans all equally.
Finally, some unity. 😜

ON Edit added background article:
Kyrsten Sinema Has Brought the Entire State of Arizona Together (in Thinking She Sucks)
SEPT 22, 20222:44 PM

Bipartisanship has always been important to Kyrsten Sinema, the senator from Arizona. Though she’s a Democrat, she has styled her career, it is often said, after “maverick” John McCain and prides herself on her frequent partnerships with Republicans. Her social media accounts and official statements often tout that she’s working “across the aisle,” trying to bring both sides together.

Well: mission accomplished!

McCarthy's 'Commitment' In Fact Makes ALL REPUBLICAN's into MAGA REPUBLICANS. NO Exceptions.

Simple as that.

All rethugs are now MAGA rethugs.

Makes GOTV that much easier - but still very very critical.

That is all.

Yesterday was the most painful day of my life. My good friend Viktor (the Brit) was killed in action while evacuating wounded men. He died a hero and took piece of my heart with him.[Image of Mr. Vazques]

I have a hole in my heart. Viktor was truly my brother.

Appalled by the heartbreaking news from liberated #Izyum. The mass graves discovered by 🇺🇦authorities are proof of extreme cruelty, in absolute violation of international law. We condemn #Russia's atrocities in the strongest terms. War crimes have to be held accountable.

WARNING! Graphic picture of executed Ukrainian Civilian.

Glasnost Gone @GlasnostGone
Russia's horrors revealed in liberated #Izyum aren't new. The fingers on these hands look like they have red nail varnish on. But sadistic Russian soldiers had torn the nails off these civilians, then bound their hands & shot them.

We know Trump can’t handle his teeny tiny crowd size being shown. So, let’s make this go viral! #TrumpRally #trumprallyohio
[Video clip of 3/4 empty arena in Ohio where TFG gave his speech. Maybe a few thousand Q-crazy crash dummies in the seats.]

TFG cannot stand to be made fun of. If you tweet, please help this one go viral.

Maybe the orange head will finally explode.
