    Yes, I do, and already said it. It's a simple point. You can't win votes simply by being against Trump. You have to offer the people something they want to win their vote. Look at the daily barrage of left-leaning threads here on the forum. They are all anti-Trump. They stand against him. But what in the hell does the left stand for? It's that simple. Are you telling me that's too difficult for you to understand?

    Last night we were at a function and the topic with the DC types was whether or not this past week signaled the coming end of the Trump presidency. I mentioned sarcastically that it looked like he was about "done". A bystander laughed and asked me if I had read this article.

    It very well could be. We'll see.

    No, it's not.

    I'm sure she won't encourage people to vote for a "liberal progressive", but perhaps she won't encourage them to vote for Trump either. Or perhaps her criticisms in the present have caused many Trump supporters to simply abandon ship. Trump's second attack on Syria basically proves to them that their vote didn't really matter, so why vote in 2020?

    lol...Republicans are eating their own. I guess I was right. Not only are we looking at the end of the Trump presidency, we're looking at the end of the Republican Party.

    Unlike the Democrats, who are so united and organized... LOL

    You realize that this all cyclical right? That every two or four or eight years one party waxes while the other party wanes? And every time this happens, partisans like you declare that the other party is doomed and that your party will rule forever? Surely you cannot be this unaware of basic reality?
