60. Where we need to go low is in attacking GOP policy.

We need to implement new and LOUD ways to call them out on this tax bill and their destruction of our government. We can't effectively play their tit-for-tag games in the social and morals games because they have the bully pulpit, a cable news channel and hundreds of talk radio stations - not to mention several very powerful think tanks that create the feeds. Democrats throwing shit against the wall on social media is a waste of good electrons and time.

Repugs are experts at this game. They create a constant head-spinning feed of lies and distortions from dozens of different directions every day to keep the public numb and confused, and they have the money to keep the machine running forever. Most liberal counter-attacks are so diluted, they are simply not effective - and usually come after the fact.

I suspect our most efficient means of counter-attack would be highly targeted, laser-precise ads on hot button issues such as cuts to education, destruction of workplace protections and environmental damage. Along with grassroots support (us), if we could somehow enlist the help of a group of wealthy liberals such as Tom Steyer to create ads on TV and in newspapers, and perhaps billboards, that might start to erode the right-wing machine.

Nuf sed, rant done.
