10. I appreciate your actually having read my post

The one that was removed was a followup to my questioning why we allow Republicans to make certain issues--like DACA, abortion, health care, gun control--our responsibility when these are Democratic ideals supported by the majority of Americans, and we are not in a position to force any legislative action on any of them. I suggested that we had done our job by our support of these issues through the years and that instead of continuing the drumbeat for battles we had already won (as far as we can win them) we concentrate on battles that truly are battles, i.e. racism, sexism and income inequality. The Republicans continue to use our support for abortion, immigration reform and "Obamacare" talking points against us--even though most Americans agree with us--and that has helped us lose elections.

We need to work on achieving majority support for legislation against racism and sexism and on doing whatever can be done to address income inequality.

Aside from this, I am alarmed that posting information about what the other side is saying about us, btw--because I was not doing that--is forbidden here. I don't know how we are supposed to counter lies if we are not allowed to know what the lies are.
