For once, Dems need to show STRENGTH

by investigating, holding hearings, then summarizing each day's activities in clear language. I want to believe that voters seek information, care about justice, understand the ongoing damage to our institutions, and appreciate the fragility of our democracy. But they don''t. Decisions are emotional. Bullies cloak their abuse as "being strong." Face it, America prefers bullying and ruthlessness. Trump added shamelessness. But the new Dems understand how to message, how to fight back and how to not take shit shoved in their faces. No sense meeting in the middle with others who only condemn you no matter what you do. So, show strength. Of course, we put that strength to positive ends. Just make the emotional message of strength above all else to appeal to our dumb-downed society.

3. We show plenty strength of principle for those who can recognize it.

It's hardly an accident that the Democratic Party is on the side of law and liberal principles our nation was founded and has grown with, occupying those as the fortress from which we are protecting our democracy from the barbarians who'd destroy it.

As for your premise, maybe look back to the midterms. They, and all the polling leading up to them, revealed that a majority of Americans really do NOT want bullying and ruthlessness.
