Democratic message: "Republicans are killing you. We won't kill you"

You'd think that would be a message that will resonate with voters. If the Democrats aren't too polite to use it.

Everything the GOP wants to do equals death.

More guns
More poison
More war
Less money/worse economy
More death penalty
More targeted killing by police with no repurcussion
Less Medicaid
Less Medicare
Less Social Security
Less CHIP
Less Education
Fewer safety regs

It is all killing us.

1. In your/our dreams.

If facts mattered to them, we would have not had W as prez or a stolen election again last year.

Here is how fucked it is, if you talk to a guy who makes $45,000 a year and votes repub, he will tell you it isnt fair to tax rich people or estates or corps more than him.

period.

End of discussion.

When you explain how a progressive tax system made his entire existence possible, how without that style of taxation he would have NOTHING, he doesnt believe you because he doesnt have to, he can continue to believe the lies.

2. The GOP is the party of death, period.

Shooting hibernating bears? Denying climate change? Taking healthcare away from children? Shooting POC? It's all good to them.

Pro-life, yeah right.

3. IMO a good portion of the US does not pay attention to anything unless it smacks them in the nose,

and then they say WTF, how did this happen.

11. They put us in harm's way. Every day and in every way possible.

Our lives are in danger, and emotionally they keep us in a state of anxiety, fear and distress.
This is not an accident, it is intentional.

13. The wealthy understand they can hire half the poor to kill the other half

And freepers often seem to think the weak liberals will die first. They're fine with killing since they believe Dipshit will bring back some coal mines and factories, build a wall, and throw out the minorities ruining America.

One of the biggest motivators for someone to vote Republican is to spite people they don't like.
