13 Words that Will Win the November 2014 Election for Democrats

The Republican Dominated Supreme Court Says NO to YOUR Birth Control - Vote Democratic.


that is it, that is all. Why?

First, and most important, those words are the truth
Second, it are simple and clear
Third, it is a short single sentence
Fourth, easy to remember
Fifth, easy to reproduce this saying. (you could write it on 3 x 5 notecards and pass those out)
Sixth, easy to use as an attack ad.
Seventh. all concerned people know it is the truth
Eight, the word "dominate" explains how Republicans really want to tell all of us what to do with Birth Control

pass it on,
repeat it
talk about it
say it again
tell everyone
ask them to make commercials using it.

This hopefully, will get through the muck and confusion.
If it does, I think we will win, no matter what the other side says.

I read somewhere that Cruz wants to take away our national parks and sell the land. (to the highest bidder of course, so some big corporation and drill on it) In that way, they are controlling what we enjoy.

how many kids their family will have, or how to control their sex lives.

It is none of their business, it is my business.
My business is personal, this is personal, and yours is yours..

Over and over those 13 words will get through. We have enough time..
It is July, election is in November.
Again and Again....

I mean no offense - your OP is excellent and there is an assault on women's rights from the GOP

But it won't motivate voters to the polls

It will work with some, if repeated enough.
Perhaps some women that would not have voted, will vote
It may be enough to win some very close races.

We really don't know, except it is July,....
.. and there is enough time to send this out.
It is honest and clear. that could be enough to get through....

Local, small races could by swayed by a few numbers

I assumed from your OP you meant a mandated win for Democrats at the national level

In Illinois \, the right wing teabagger running for governor against Quinn is terrible. The truth must be told.
In a very close election, this could do it as well as for other governor races, perhaps Georgia, or maybe some others. You name them.
Perhaps even in county races. Who knows? We must try!!!!

This sexual privacy issue could do it.

and sexual privacy is a real big motivator. Who wants to shrug and say "so what?" to that?

As for now - jobs, wages, medical care, food, security...

The problem with privacy issues is the pervasive mentality of 'Well that wouldn't happen to me.'

Perhaps enough to win key elections. The words are honest and totally true.
That is different than most slogans....Defending the Republican dominated Supreme Court will be difficult at best.
I don't think that many will agree that corporations have "religious freedom".
That will make the "corporations are people" argument look simply stupid.

woo me with science

any claims to be the defenders of "privacy" become a vicious joke.

Except I'd put it another way: "The Republican Party wants the government to interfere with your health care."

women don't much like the idea of a bunch of old guys making decisions about their birth control, I don't think men want to hear their wives/partners birth control being an issue in politics because it could very much affect them, and people outside of their reproductive years might feel that your statement best expresses their feelings...

all are good, solid messages!

You are correct, different kinds of people will listen to different versions of the same message. Surely the people at the Democratic Committee, and Obama, and the others on our side, can figure out the correct version for the correct audience. I believe deeply this one is the answer to keeping the senate, and possibly taking the house.. Now it doesn't look like that now, and that doesn't matter one bit. Nope....

Nine years ago, if you would have told me an Afro American would be elected president in 2008, I would have asked you what the hell have you been smoking, or drinking or whatever??? ..stranger things have happened in politics.......

Yes, we can win..
