Of course Fox News is going to spin it so their audience believes the Dems care only about fringe issues.
Ok, Let's see what happens in 2020.


The dems do care way too much about fringe issues, especially in places like Ca. Whether one watches Fox news or not, You just listen to what the dems themselves say and do and of course you can tell that they care about too much silly crap. What bathrooms people use, giving illegals benefits and drivers licenses and silliness on that order.

Trump offers nothing if you aren't a white, heterosexual, fundamentalist Christian who believes in a strictly enforced patriarchal society.
more in touch eh?

Last I checked, the average voter does NOT want:

Amnesty for millions of illegal aliens
Major tax increases
late term abortion
Reparations
UN dictating US policy
Sharia law

Hey look, you’ve hit all of the nonsensical right-wing talking points, the most comical of which is that Democrats want “Sharia Law”.

Prove it, or GTFO.

No one wants Sharia Law
Don't know where you came up with that UN talking point
Late term abortion is a strawman that doesn't exist
Major tax increases is another strawman


As for reparations, not touching that one
And as for amnesty, mass deportations aren't a viable solution, so short of killing them en masse, what do you suggest?

It's Republicans constantly trying to push for laws to enforce their religious views on the entire country whether they share them or not.

All Muslims want is religious freedom; the same thing Christians have in this country.

That being said, I don't think even that is enough to get people to do anything about the current dumpster fire in the White House. Especially when I see reactions on this forum to kids living in deplorable conditions right on our own soil, when some of the only responses I get are send them back to where they came from. As if children know where they came from. But if that is how so many feel, then re-electing Trump would not surprise me at all.


Oh, sorry.

I was unaware that there were never any kids held in facilities at the border until Trump was elected.

Is anyone really thinking that is going to work?

Not only will they not win the White House in 2020, but they'll lose the House and get further plastered in the Senate. The party is just a few short years away from extinction. They've just got no message. None.

None of these thing will happen but your echo chamber tells you differently.

I'm surprised you left off the Dems will take your guns away like Obama did also !

You are right, none of those things WILL happen. The American people won't stand for it. But Commissar Pelosi will certainly try.
