it's a lie to get out of debates, distract, sympathy or resign. i don't buy it.

Abortion is one thing, it's all the other issues that are frightening like expanded police powers,

degrading individual rights, tort reform, corporations running amok, the environment. If Dems take all 3 branches they must do something with SCOTUS and the Senate. Add seats and states. I am sick and tired of the backward, fanatical religious right dictating how I live. Dems must be bold, they must crush the right and try to deal with the right-wing media monopoly and make Liz Warren the new Trust Buster to go after social media and tech giants. Last, the must reorganize the Federal courts to dilute the damage Tump and NcConnell has done. It's a lot and they may have only 2 years to do it if they take the Senate but do it they must.

Ain't that the truth.But most Trumpers think the media is controlled by the left. To which I say,

years ago I had to get a subscription. To Sirius to even listen to lefty talk radio and that was slim pickings. Fox and right wing radio has settled these peoples' minds and ability to think. Many rural areas only have Fox and RW radio so is it surprising that they are brainwashed, what choice do they have? There just isn't any alternative views. MSNBC is a flea compared to Fox and many rural areas don't have any left leaning media outlets. And this is the problem that will continue to polarize the country. All Trumpers spout the same misinformed propaganda about the left. Liberals want to take from the rich and give to the poor. Dems want to give illegal immigrants free everything, education. housing, healthcare etc. Trump is a brilliant businessman who sacrificed to run for president. Trump tells it like it is and sticks it to China etc. He was first leader to meet with Kim Jung Un, like that is a good thing. Trump handled the pandemic brilliantly. Libs want to take your guns away. Just a litany of Fox and RW BS that they think is good for America because that is all they hear. Can we blame these misinformed dupes?

Another great ad but I am waiting for the "What Could Have Been Ad".

What could have been if we had a leader guiding us through this pandemic like every American President before rose to the occasion to unite and lead the country regardless of party. Where are the Dem leaders standing outside his Gold course with a hoard of reporters screaming why are you golfing while people are dying. Dem leaders should have a sit in, or hunger strike demanding that the Federal govt takes the lead in the pandemic. He is golfing while we are dying. The focus should be on his lack of action everyday. You never hear Trump talk about what being an American means and how the world looks to us to lead on everything from human rights, justice and equality, and yes, militarily when needed. The world has always looked to the USA that's why when Obama was elected hope returned to the world who came out by the millions to see him. Trump never expresses American greatness, he only degrades, divides, and it's never about America, it is always about him. And people let me just say this, I live in New Jersey and my son was in Ocean City , New Jersey for the 4th and he was disgusted by the inordinate number of Trump signs he saw. It's all about owning Libs, nothing about policy. Trump's greatest asset is the ability to bring the very worst out in people. He gives license to hate and this BLM movement infuriates his supporters, and now this cancel culture bullshit . We cannot take this election for granted. Forget the polls, he can win again and we must do everything in our power to prevent this. Let The House start tomorrow by initiating an impeachment inquiry into Bill Barr. He must go now.

Good question. I don't know but we can start with implementing great policies that benefit the

majority of people so as to silence rw hate media. It took awhile but I don't hear the right screaming about getting rid of the ACA and I am aware of the litigation in SCOTUS. But take away pre-existing conditions and you will see riots. Break up these media conglomerates and put ownership limits in place. Go after advertisers aggressively. Trump has expanded the power of the president to an unimaginable level. So when we win there should be no problem with an extremely progressive agenda. Make DC a State, get rid of the filibuster. Make Warren the Trust busting Czar. Go after big banks, big tech and pack the court's to dilute Trump's appointments. Go after Kavenaugh and have a real investigation into his lies during his confirmation hearing. The little lies told under oath about the Renata Club, what "Boof" meant. Have real witnesses and then impeach the bastard. Any R Senator votes no to removing him, punish that State financially depriving them of Federal funds. I don't know but we must get real creative and use the power of the President to crush them.

A model citizen, man, father, president, neighbor etc. Pure class and grace.

Incredible ads but I am just pissed we Dems can't produce ads this hard hitting and impactful.

And what concerns me more is that Republican leaders have not distanced themselves from Trump. That means they are still confident in his ability to win and they fear separating from him. To all us Dems that should serve as a warning that this race is far from over. We are the underdogs and we must organize a massive ground game for Election Day. And Biden must be rock solid in the debates and hire the best advisors for debate strategy. How about hiring some of those never Trumpers who are experts at messaging and dirty tricks. Our country literally is depending on his winning.

I don't believe he will attend in person. No way he subjects himself to that crowd. It's all a bluff

They will be paying him millions, no doubt his future is limitless, I am so sorry to say. We need to

start to dismantle Fox and the Murdoch family. Next Zuckerberg. Make them the example of what happens to those who pollute our minds. Strip them bare and crush their empires. This must be our prime directive once we win.

I watched documentary on PBS show American Experience about the 1918 Spanish Flu. PBS is

allowing it to be viewed for free for now. It's a warning to us now. The headlines back then were exactly the same. Initially the virus would appear and disappear in the Spring of 1918. By October with the movement of people around the country for WWI, there were 100,000's of deaths a month. It wasn't until the virus had spread to most of the population did it slow down. But that virus was especially deadly to otherwise healthy males 20-29. I remember speaking to my grandfather and grandmother who both were from large families of 9-11 kids and they both lost siblings to the virus. In Philadelphia people just dropped dead on the sidewalk. We better heed the lesson history provides.
