Dem Candidates and Strategists please read this.

If you or your candidate is running in November, Trump is giving you a HUGE GIFT right now.
Helsinki week is a gold mine for Democrats.
Veterans and older Americans grew up hating and living in fear of the USSR.
Even though itís now smaller and called Russia, Americans still see them as evil.

These people who love Trump are now confused. Itís cognitive dissonance.
We need to take advantage.
Stress patriotism on web sites, yard signs, banners, ads.
Have a veterans outreach person or people. Go to places where they congregate.
Without calling Trump an outright traitor (I know he is), talk about how confused we all are by Trumps behavior. Then, let them talk and express their concerns. Which, believe me, they have.
Be a soft shoulder.
Then let them know that you and your candidate will not accept cozying up to Putin and Russia.
Say that you will defend America against any efforts to do so no matter where it comes from.

These people, lifelong Repubs, May not vote for you.
But, they will think about it and they may just stay at home on Election Day.
And, thatís a win for us.
