40. The politics of fear. 'Let's not try something because they will destroy it even if we succeed.'

Sorry, that is a prescription for failure. And since we've seen it in action, we KNOW it is a prescription for failure.

How about we just forge ahead and do what is right, knowing the people are on our side, then USE their attempts to take stuff away from the people to fight them with?

When did the Dem party decide that fighting for the people just isn't worth it? Because well, 'republicans'??

That is a defeatist argument and has no place in any discussion on what is right for this country. If they are too weak to fight, (which I doubt, my opinion is they are complicit btw), then replace them.
