Why is it so hard for Democrats to say, shout out loud, “I want to help people”.
Not corporations or the wealthy and wait and wait for the droppings to ‘trickle down’ as the Republicans want.
‘Friday, Politico warned: “Governor’s races in South and Midwest could be lost if party brand becomes too liberal.”
For example, in Delaware in 2012, President Obama beat Romney 242,547 (59%) to 165,476 (40%), Democrat Jack Markell was elected governor with 69%’.
‘But that doesn’t stop Delaware Gov. Jack Markell from telling Politico that overemphasizing liberal themes to turn out the Democratic base will backfire.
“There are still more self-described conservatives than there are self-described liberals,” he said. “I think relying on a strategy where all you’re trying to do is turn out your base of liberal Democrats is not a very compelling electoral strategy. I think what we need to do is we need to have a message that is compelling to Democrats, to independents, and even to some Republicans.”(1)
No dumb ass .
- What you do is you campaign on Republicans are going to cut Social Security and Democrats and going to expand it.
You campaign on Republicans are going to phase out Medicare and Democrats are going to expand it the Universal Single Payer Health Care.
- You campaign on Republicans want to do away with the minimum wage and Democrats want to raise it to $15.00 a hour.
You campaign on Republicans want to cut funding on every thing EXCEPT the military and Democrats want to cut funding on the military but increase it on infrastructure – roads, airports, bridges, railways.
America is our home. If you don’t spend money on keeping it up, your home will fall apart.
