"Support the policies," yes. The "Do not waiver" part is what I have trouble with. That sounds like what the Republicans have been doing, that blocked most every progressive action lately, including denying Obama the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice for over a year. The inflexibility of both sides is what is causing a lot of this hostility in the country.
I meant not wavering in the context of ardently supporting liberal policies before and after
getting elected. As in not backing down from universal healthcare when you catch a little heat from Fox News or when a lobbyist strolls into town.
I fully support working with the Trump and the other Republicans towards common goals. Want to fix the country's infrastructure? Let's do it. Want to waste money for some grandiose border wall and do some Operation Wetback crap? No dice.
This is a good idea, as long as you don't take it too far and make false connections, just to smear your opponent.
And it's the easiest target in the world and you can be 100% honest. It's a gimme.
Good integrity is still important. It's just harder to win that way.
It's the only way to win long term. Winning just to win is meaningless. Winning to advance sane policies is the only true victory.
(Donald Trump, is the master of taking the "quick and easy path" of fear and hate, in his lust for power. Just like any well trained Lord-of-the-Sith.)
Quick and easy dies quick and easy, too. Just ask Palpatine. :)
Trump's out of step with America. Have you seen how young people are leaning?
It's a goddamn disaster for the Republicans just waiting to happen!
All you have to do is point that Trump's way off base every chance you get. Hey, did you hear he's pro-Torture? Did you hear that his pal Pompeo wants to put Snowden to death? Did you hear he can't even have a rational discussion with the PM of Australia without slamming down the phone like a big ol' man-baby? Just go to town with that stuff. Shout it from the rooftops.
Meanwhile, support Democrats who are actually liberal and who are willing to fight to enact liberal policies, policies that the public already largely agrees with. You know how
low-information voters always say that they can't tell the Republican and Democrat candidates apart? Make it look laughably stupid in the primaries and then at the next presidential election. Lay out the policy differences in no uncertain terms. Ask the people if they want to support 4 more years of misrule or if they want to support a better way.
