Trump Watch November 30 2017

Day 306:

Don’t Stop The Fight

I been giving small donation to people in politics I think are important even if I don’t live in that state (5 or 10 bucks) and I have noticed something over and over.

There are basically two kinds of democrats running right now. What I am calling the corporate/Clinton/Obama wing, and the Progressive/Bernie/Warren wing.

When you give money to a corporate democrat you get emails back that basically can be summarized as “the sky is falling, give me more money right now!” or “My opponent is Horrible vote for me!!!”

When you give money to a progressive democrat you get emails that lay out policy positions, express a vision for the future, and basically lay out why you should vote for the candidate by expressing a policy vision for the future.

I gave 10$ to Doug Jones and got nothing but hair on fire emails about Roy Moore. Nothing about policy, nothing about his vision for the future, no reason why I would want to vote for him other than his opponent is horrible (which he is).

This is almost exactly the play book Clinton ran, and it is seeming to be just as successful….

You can’t fight something with nothing. Doug Jones should be on TV/Radio/Internet every single day talking about how he is going to make Alabama better, instead the same stupid high price corporate consultants are running the same same stupid play book they have been running since Obama.

Look at Virginia, a socialist and a Trans woman beat long time republican incumbents by focusing on issues and how to make the world better for people.

Roy Moore is one of the most beatable candidates ever, but Doug Jones is not running on his own ideas, he is running on “look at this horrible guy!”

Keep thinking like a Utopian.
