How Democrats can wipe out the GOP and fix America

March 20, 2018

Some thoughtful proposals for what should happen if the GOP were to lose their Congressional majorities this fall and the Presidency in 2020. We need to make sure both come to pass, but these steps would help reclaim ground lost during the Trump years and make progress toward a more just and equitable society for us all in the not-too-distant future. The results stand in sharp contrast to the direction that Trump and his Congressional enablers seem bound and determined to achieve should they maintain or strengthen their hold on political power in this country.

I, for one, find unacceptable the notion that the GOP vision (as expressed by the various legislative proposals put forward by them in recent years and even decades) is worth achieving. This is not a vision which would make America Great, but would exacerbate inequalities which already exist while strengthening the economic and political power of the oligarchs who currently hold sway in Washington and way too many state capitals. We need to do this. – RJC

  1. You know of course none of this is likely to happen. Not with neoliberals controlling the Dem Party, and a significant number of Blue Dogs voting with the Repugs because they’re terrified of losing reelection in what has become Red states during their elected terms.

    • Point noted, but it seems like it could be a platform for the right people to get elected on in order to turn things around.

  2. You must be excited Rick when you hear: “To anybody who thinks their voice doesn’t matter, it does,” Samantha Goldberg, a 17-year-old student at Stoneman Douglas, said as she was walking to the rally Saturday. “Every single voice comes together and makes a huge impact. This is just the beginning…” Congress and the Senate in conjunction with much of the media have deliberately misled the people. Now the people must vote for a new vision of America.

    • As long as our youth have not yet become jaded, I can allow myself to share their hope while moving toward positive change.

  3. Young people become jaded when they see their parents doing things they were told not to do by the same people. They will need all the support available to stand up and vote 🙂

    • My sense is they will get more support now than they have in decades – and on more than this issue alone. We should have a good inkling by November.

    Items 1, 2 and 4 under foreign policy are what is needed. Everything else and I mean EVERYTHING, is bumpkin nonsense. I can’t stop some Democrats for dreaming of nonsense but how about we put 1, 2 and 4 at the TOP of the list with all the rest as we will get to it when we finish the important stuff.
