I Want To Know - When Tr**p Steals The Presidency On Nov 6th - Who Will The.....

Dems blame for the loss?

I don't want to see the long faces we saw when Tr**p beat Hillary. I don't want to see Steven Colbert look like death warmed over in disbelief.

I don't want to see the late night show hosts - yeah - the ones that made a joke out of Biden's age - say that they can't believe we lost.

I don't want to hear the MSM and the talking heads blame Biden for whatever.

I don't want to hear the talking heads on either side of the Riden for Biden or the Step Downers - say see - I told you so.

We still have a chance - Dems. We have 4 months before the election to come together and unify behind the one that brought us this far.

It's up to you to come to your senses and think about the Country, Our Democracy and the Party - instead of yourselves.

That's your mission now - if you choose to accept.

Yes - we could win this and IMHO win it handliy - if we stop confusing the issue and the American Electorate.

Get it together - will you!!!!

Project 2025 And Those Americans That Should Be Concerned By It.........

I happened to see the one page bullet points of Project 2025 that’s been posted here on DU.

This one pager is certainly better than the complete 900 or so page version that’s out there. One has to really be politically inclined to try and read the whole summary of Project 2025

So as we know that many American Voters are one issue voters – maybe we should try to take the one page bullet points and direct them to those Americans that a particular bullet point might effect the most.

Here’s my first pass at this:

Senior Citizens/Retirees/Those Soon To Retire
- Cut social security
- Cut medicare
- Raise the retirement age
- Raise prescription drug prices
Women Issues
- Complete ban on abortions without exceptions
- Ban contraceptives
- Condemn single mothers while promoting only ‘traditional families’
- End no fault divorce
Working Class Voters

- Higher taxes for the working class
- Elimination of unions and worker protections
- End the Affordable Care Act
Parents & Their Children
- Eliminate the Dept of Education
- Banning of books (various topics)
- End free and discounted school lunch programs
- Use public, taxpayer money for private religious schools
- Teach Christian religious beliefs in public schools
Immigration & Racial Issues

- End civil rights & DEI protections in government
- Ban African American studies in all levels of education
- Mass deportation of immigrant & incarceration in “camps”
- End birth right citizenship
- Ban Muslims from entering the country
- Ban books and curriculum about slavery
LGBTQ Issues
- Ban gender studies in all levels of education
- Ban books that feature LGBTQ issues
- End marriage equality
Climate Issues

- Ending climate protections
- Increase arctic drilling
- Deregulate big business and the oil industry
General Issues That Effect All Americans
- Additional tax breaks for corporations and the 1%
- Promote and expedite capital punishment
- Defund the FBI and Homeland Security
- Use the military to break up domestic protests
- Eliminate federal agencies like the FDA, EPA, NOAA and more
- Continue to pack the Supreme Court and lower courts with right wing judges
Military & Veteran Issues

- By dismantling key agencies and slashing federal jobs, Project 2025 risks undermining not only government efficiency but also the livelihoods of tens of thousands of veterans

My concept here is to make sure each of these major groupings of voters see what Project 2025, Tr**p and the Repugs have in store for Americans – if Tr**p is elected in November

We need to make sure that each of these effected groups know what’s in store for them if Tr**p wins the presidency.

We know that all Americans won’t read the whole Project 2025 document – but maybe we can get them interested in the parts of the Project 2025 document that will directly impinge on them.

If you can – please pass this on to others. If you have additional bullet points in any of these areas or any additional areas – please add to this post.

Will Someone Ask These People Calling For Biden To Step Down - Why They Feel He Can't .......

beat Tr**p?

1. Is it just because he had a bad debate performance?
2. Do they think that because of his age - that people will switch their votes to Tr**p?
3. Do they think that Dems who were set on voting for Biden will sit the election out because of his bad debate performance or his age.

I really want to know what their rational is.

I've said this here before - the Dems mission is to win this election. If Biden decides to stay in the race - will they not vote for him?

Don't they believe in his back-up VP? If Biden doesn't make it through this term - he has a great back-up that is step-in ready to take the reins. Don't they have confidence in Kamala Harris.

Seems easy for me to understand. Whether Biden stays in the race or he steps down and a replacement is designated - the mission doesn't change. The Dems still have to win in November.

Anyone that would have voted for Biden before the debate - because they are a Dem and they know that the mission is to beat Tr**p and the Repugs - will still vote for him.

They should also vote for his replacement - should he step down.

They will not sit the election out and not vote.

So why all the concern now that Biden can't beat Tr**p?

Are there that many undecided voters out there that will now vote for Tr**p because of Biden's age or bad debate performance?

What the hell are these people calling for Biden to drop out thinking?

If the Dems lose in November - it will be these people that will be the blame.

How Does Biden's Bad Debate Performance Effect Other Down Ballot Dem Races?......

Really? Because Biden had a bad debate -- voters are now flocking to Tr**p?
I think not.

Really? Because Biden had a bad debate - Dem voters will not vote for any Dems on the ticket? I think not.

Really? Are Dem voters just giving up on all Dems because Biden had a bad debate performance? I think not.

Whether Biden stays in this race or drops out for some other Dem to be the Party nominee in November - I don't think Dem voters are going to vote for Tr**p or Repugs because Biden had a bad debate performance.

And I don't think Dem voters are going to sit the election out because Biden had a bad debate performance. I don't think that they'd risk losing our democracy - because Biden had a bad debate performance.

They're still going to vote. And they are still going to vote Dem. I don't think that they've lost their minds and will vote Repug because Biden had a bad debate.

Where is all this negativity in the Dems in Congress that are asking Biden to step down coming from?

I just don't get it!!!

One Of The Discussions We See Every Four Years Is The MSM Showing Pics Of The President.....

when he's elected - and then show pics of him years later as he leaves the presidency.

Look at the change in Obama after those years. Obama aged. Went gray. Looked warn out and tired.

The stress of the job as President takes his toll on anyone in that job.

Yes - Joe today is not the same Joe of 3 1/2 years ago. He's older. Slower in motion. And maybe even a little more soft spoken than he was at the beginning of his presidency.

BUT - mentally - the way he sparred with George S on his questions and how he defended himself and his Presidency - he's on top of his game now. He knows best what he's accomplished and what he still needs to accomplish. He knows he knows how best to take on the challenges of the next 4 years.

We can't have a more honest, dignified and qualified person in that position than Joe Biden.

We now have to show Joe Biden that we have the same confidence in him now that he has in himself.

Tonight he convinced me that I'll be voting for the right person in November and the one that will beat TCF and save our Democracy.

July 6, 2024

What Is George S. Trying To Do To Joe....

Just listen to Biden answering his questions. Does he think that TCF can even put a simple answer to any of his questions together that make sense or is not a lie?

George is being a real ass here.

I'm more behind Biden now than ever.

January 20, 2025 - Inauguration Or Coronation?.........

Is It My Imagination Or Are The Russian Bots Of Previous Elections Out In Force Here At DU.......

and promoting chaos and doing everything they can to further fragment the Dem Electorate.

One look at some of the posts here - make me suspicious.

July 5, 2024

We're Getting Two Conflicting Stories About Biden & I'm Sure It Is Intentional......

TCF is letting the doubting Dems and the vocal Repugs to call for Biden to drop out and be replaced.

We know these doubting Dems just want - in any way - to defeat TCF - so it is kind of understandable that some of them are calling for Biden to drop out.

The Repugs on the other hand - I believe - know that Biden can beat TCF so they are fanning the flames to get Biden to drop out and be replaced with an easier candidate to defeat. Add chaos to the mix - and confuse the Dem electorate in hopes that some just sit the election out and don't vote.

TCF on the other hand is sending signals out that he wants to run against Biden. I believe this is 'reverse psychology' on his part. He wants us to believe that he can easily defeat Biden in November. He's counting on those doubting Dems - also to think that he can easily defeat Biden in November.

Really TCF knows that Biden has the upper hand here and can beat him. So - he's using the 'reverse psychology' to put out a message that he's not worried about Biden.

So there you go - we are getting two conflicting stories about Biden = both in hopes to create enough doubt of a Biden win; create chaos and hope that the doubting Dems win the 'drop & replace' Biden internal Party battle.

I believe that Biden is on to them. He's knows what they are up to and what they are trying to do. He knows that he's the only one at this time to be able to defeat TCF.

He's going to stay the course. He's not going to drop out. He's going to win in November!!!
