No, the reality is that liberals need to show the fuck up in 2018 -- Donald Trump would be completely toothless if the Republicans didn't have a majority in both Congress and Senate, in addition to the Supreme Court and State Governors. Conservatives aren't even close to being a majority in this country, but they keep winning everything because they're motivated enough to get out and vote.

If you look at the numbers, the clear majority in America today are non-voters, and most people don't vote because they don't think it makes any difference -- and with centrist Dems like Hillary supporting the same corporate oligarchy as the Republicans, they're absolutely right. If the Democrats want to start piling up victories, they need to give people something to vote FOR, rather than just voting against (because not every GOP candidate is going to be a pedophile)... And they can't just campaign on identity politics. No reason to abandon their platform of championing minorities, but in 2018 they need to present something tangible for the majority as well ("it's the economy, stupid!"), otherwise they don't stand a snowball's chance in hell of knocking Trump off his perch in 2020.

I still think all of that falls in line with having a good candidate. There is nothing inherently wrong with being a centrist Democrat, but Hillary was just a bad candidate all around.

If you're going to run Mark Cuban, the facebook kid, or Oprah Winfrey against Trump, then he'll get another for years for sure.

Happy 2018...

@jdawsey1: Today on Twitter: Trump taunted Kim Jong-Un and bragged about his nuclear button, called for potential prosecution of Huma Abedin and James Comey, threatened to strip Palestinian Authority funding, took credit for no airline deaths, attacked NYT, Democrats & vowed to build wall.

It's a lot of fun now when they do the weekly Wednesday storm sirens hours after having a nuclear button pissing test.

@CREWcrew: The voter fraud commission looks to end with more complaints filed against it than instances of voter fraud found

Reason to celebrate: Trump shuts down his phony voting integrity commission

The IRS election-year quandary: When to boost Americans paychecks
https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...cks-irs-332183

Quote:
The agency is under pressure to take as little as possible so people will see big increases in their take-home pay ahead of this years midterm elections.

But that would come at a cost: smaller or even nonexistent refunds next year, though millions rely on them to plug holes in their family budgets. Democrats are already accusing the Trump administration of plotting "phantom windfalls" ahead of the November contest that will come back to haunt taxpayers next tax season.

Steve Bannon to face House Russia investigators Tuesday
https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/16/polit...ion/index.html

Quote:
"You realize where this is going. ... This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose (senior prosecutor Andrew) Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy," Bannon is quoted as saying in Wolff's book. "Their path to f***ing Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr., and Jared Kushner. ... It's as plain as a hair on your face."

@Khanoisseur: By the first year anniversary of his inauguration, Trump will have spent $75 million taxpayer dollars vacationing at/boosting his properties - that’s 187 years in POTUS salaries - and that’s not including taxpayer funded trips by his kids to India to boost Trump-branded projects.
