Maybe literally, once enough grieving parents bury their kids. Maybe Republicans need to see what happens when they sentence innocent people to die.

Just read about one DACA kid who was sent back to Mexico by ICE, and he was killed within a week.

I hope you can give me a cite. I want to spread that.

It was actually within three weeks, not one week.

I know, I am repeating myself. However, I don't think just bashing Trump is going to win the election for the Dems. It would be nice if they could actually bring themselves to even vaguely mention some of the stuff the Jackass administration is doing. You know, little stuff like lowering drinking water standards, dumping coal waste into running streams, tripling the rents of the poor, attacking our national parks, getting rid of medicare and medicaid, you know, the little stuff nobody seems to want to talk about.

I have often wondered if the Dems are even keeping track of what the right has been doing and producing a list that candidates could use. I have written to them and asked but couldn't get any answer, except, of course, a request for money as a response. Seems to me that their only real plan is to get a huge pile of money for I have no idea, at least the right can be counted on to actually put up ads every now and then.

I agree with you, but the problem is getting these facts into the gibberish of American media.

At this point, the only way it might be done is to be as outrageous as Trump in making their points, but this would just increase the inanity of what passes for public discourse in the United States of Hysteria.

They are well aware of every crappy thing the right and Trump have done. They will be running campaigns for November and in 2020. To do that takes money. Fund raising IS the start of every campaign, unless you think they can just talk about those issues and everyone will magically hear them. They are doing that right now and you are apparently not even aware of it, because it's not very effective. Free speech costs money, if you want lots of people to hear it.
