Yes, Tuesday did stick a knife into the gut of the GOP

and sorry for the violent imagery, but this moment is exactly the right moment to twist that knife back and forth. This is not the time to sit back and rest. Get out there and protest everything. Take the momentum we just witnessed and move our agenda forward. Forget the bragging and needling of the other side, heck, pretend we lost on Tuesday and come out of the gate this week with even more resolve than we saw on Tuesday. They are hoping that we get smug and stop pushing. Take it to them before they can regroup, and you know that they will. Lets reclaim sanity in this country from those that are content with willful ignorance. I am open to ideas that can be played out on either local or national stage. Please give us your best suggestions for carrying this fight for our democracy forwards and sweeping the ugly nationalists back under their rocks.

1. You should be sorry for the violent imagery

I say this hesitatingly, because I believe wholeheartedly in your message.

However, there are a lot of truly violent people on the other side that own guns and are eager to use them.

You also lend credence to "both side-ism" and strengthen the argument of our political enemies that the left is violent too.

Twisting the knife imagery goes too far IMO.

4. I'd prefer "stick a fork on the GOP"

as in "they are done. Cooked."

5. Patience. The knife has been slowly striking and we need not resort to this imagery.

Mueller

SDNY

Trump Foundation

Dutch investigation of Giuliani

Crete

Trump tower and properties


Money laundering


Obstruction of justice


IRS violations


Chinese/Saudi bribery

Illegal campaign contributions

NRA

Influence peddling

Officials lying under oath

Revealing of state secrets to foreign powers

This investigation could go on for years. Better to use your energy to rally the party for 2020. I like your energy, but we are in the first quarter of a four quarter game. Historically I think he will be toast. But there are many things that will have to play out.
