Three words to convince moderates and independents to vote for our side: "Checks and Balances"

....Please go the soft way to convince those that might go with us. "Checks and Balances" Just like in the Constitution. We all leaned this is school. Over and Over. "It is time for checks and balances on Trump. No loud accusations. No screaming he did this and he did that. The moderates and independents know the truth.

The truth is very simple. "Checks and Balances, one branch checks another"

We do not need to say that Trump is out of control. Everyone already knows that. And the Trumpers will not change. But moderates and independents will change to our side. Be reasonable, never yell. ..Over and over. "It is time for checks and balances." Reasonable people will understand and make this change possible. No screaming, no yelling. Just simple truth. And it is true and everyone knows it. It is indeed time for checks and balances on President Trump. We are not lying, because Trump has made it clear. He needs some "checks and balances" in November.

Yes, this will work because this is the truth. And the other side knows it. This is the argument that will work. Why? Because it is the honest truth. Trump needs one branch of government to check him. Plain and simple. Over and over.... And it is the truth, not some lies like Mr. Trump often tells.

1. "Independents"


How many studies and analyses have to be done to convince people that there is hardly any such thing as an "independent". There are unaffiliated Republicans and unaffiliated Democrats but those are just people who like to feel superior by claiming to be above party politics.

My mom is an "independent" but has never and will never vote for a Republican, and my father in law is an "independent" who has never and will never vote for a Democrat. both claim to be "moderate" and "independent". Neither are either such thing.

Trying to find some magical way in to get either of those types of people to vote for the other side is wasted time, effort, and money. If and when they vote they vote by party lines just as frequently as hyper partisans.

The key is not messaging it is getting out the vote.
