Democrats need to fight Fire with Fire

The current (and past) incarnation of the Republican Party (Cult of Trump) will use virtually any tactics to secure victory.

Democrats need to fight fire with fire against them in 2020 in every local, state, and national race.

Republicans are placing Anti Impeachment Ads in districts of House Centrist Democrats that voted to impeach Donald Trump.

Democrats need to, in addition to the ads showing their advantage on issues like health care, broadcast pro-impeachment ads depicting Individual One’s betrayal of his oath of office in vulnerable Republican seats.

Republicans say that Trump won an electoral college “landslide.” Democrats need to continually remind people that Trump lost the popular vote by three million votes, a greater margin than any United States President. He owed his Electoral College squeaker to a 110,000 vote spread in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin that will not be there again.

Republicans say that the “Stable Genius” is responsible for the state of the economy.

Democrats need to counter that this economic expansion started under the Obama Administration and average stock levels and employment gains were better under the Democratic Administration.

Democrats also need to show that their programs, not the Trumpists, will better provide opportunity, move the country forward, clean the environment, rebuild infrastructure, increase the number of those with health insurance, invest in schools and children, raise wages, and reduce income inequality.

Republicans are relying on their base turning out to carry the 2016 KKK-endorsed candidate to another electoral college victory.

Democrats need to take advantage of the opportunity Trump’s, Moscow Mitch’s, and their cultist, divisive, obstructive, scientifically ignorant apostates present to them by persuading people of all stripes (regardless of race, religion, party affiliation, or social class)  and all regions (rural, urban, and suburb) that the Democratic program is best for the country.

Republicans are content with having an impeached, sexist, lying (over 15,000 and rising), racist, and thieving, unindicted co-conspirator as their nominee again in 2020.

Democrats, like former President Obama, have stated, need to get over this fixation with purity tests and “tearing down the system” and pick the best appealing candidate with the most electable progressive program to beat Donald Trump.

It is possible that Donald Trump could win reelection with a larger popular vote loss than in 2016.

Democrats, if they want to defeat Trump, retake the Senate, hold the House, and prevail in the majority of state and local races in 2020, need to wake up and fight fire with fire.
