I wanted to vote 'all the above' because all the options are a losing proposition for democrats in 2020.


Remember what Joe Biden said....I will take truth over facts.

I guess it's moot to hope they would take up some real issues such as looking at ACA to modify it, dealing with border issues, etc.

Anyone who justifies it by stating "they did it, how does it feel now that we are" is absolutely clueless.

Just because one party does a "thing" doesn't mean the other party is obliged to be even worse!!!

In the end, nothing is getting done so Obama was and now Trump is forced to use executive orders to get something/anything accomplished. This isn't how our government is supposed to work!
Exactly this.

And I'll add ... if they'd take the 3 or 4 things they passed that COULD become truly bipartisan and promote and work on those, rather than stick to the "the House has passed 30 things" mantra, maybe they could claim some legislative victories.

IMO, they can get some "meaningful" gun reform - like background check improvement - if they'll work on that. Their background bill DOES allow transfer among family members. I think the American people are ready to limit sales thru weekend gun shows, internet "instant orders", magazine capacity, etc. IF they'll just quit demonizing guns and lawful gun ownership. Lawful gun owners don't want criminals with guns any more than the left does.

None of these priorities make sense with Trump in the White House.

Jobs for American citizens
Border Security for America
Negotiation FAIR trade agreements
Protecting the safety of American citizens
Protection of the civil rights of all Americans-including the 2A
Addressing our "revolving door" criminal justice system-mandating mandatory sentences for violent crimes
3 strikes laws
Work to unite the American people
Denounce those that use lies and violence to promote a political agenda.
Reign in our uncontrolled federal spending.

Just a few thoughts.


You know-basically doing things to actually help Americans, rather than harm them.

None of these priorities make sense to anyone who can balance a checkbook.

I NL'd your points so it would be easier to throw in my 2 1/2 cents:

1. Obama was the deporter in chief. Trump has deported less than 1/2 what Obama did. Obama also started the separation of children and placing them in cages, not a word was said by MSM and the Dems. All of a sudden Trump is the bad guy. He's trying to secure the border but the Dems have done a 180 for the sake of not giving him (us) a win. They are hypocrites.

2. Trump is the first President since Nixon to do just that. All he's getting for it is grief, even as Schumer applauds him for it.

3. The first worst thing to make the streets a danger to citizens is to tie the hands of law enforcement. The progs have basically castrated the police. If we are a country of laws, why are all our laws being ignored by the Progs?

4. I only see one party trying to dismantle the 2nd while exclaiming (falsely) that Trump is suppressing the 1st. I've not seen one fake news outlet shut the hell up. Such utter BS from the lying press.

5. 3 strikes was a good idea implemented incorrectly. A person could build a rap sheet an inch thick and as long as there were not 2 violent crimes they would walk after minimal sentencing. THe dude that shot 6 officers in Ohio is living proof of that. 25 years ago that guy would not have walked out of there. Kudos to those cops!

6. see 5

7. Yea, good luck with that. The mainstream press and the social media giants are intentionally dividing us.

8. See 1 thru 7

9. Start with the educational system. WE spend more on each student and get far less for it than any other country on earth. The Unified School System has become more about ideology building than education. The public university system has become a money grab from the people who pay taxes to those FK'd up institutions so they can build their water parks, climbing walls, food courts, and billion-dollar sports complexes.

Take away their public funding, set a cap on fees, pull all the BS classes like Gender Studies (we used to call them underwater basket weaving classes) and start teaching real-world classes, like, maybe, Trig, Chem, Gov, Robotics, CompSci, >>>STEM!<<<

It won't happen, but: please stop passing legislative gestures that are never going to survive the Senate. You're not there to create works of fiction.

Beyond that, I'd like to see: Trump's tax records get published; have the government stop subsidizing non-renewable energy industries; and work on fixing the health care/student loan boondoggles.

Focus on the issues affecting American Citizens, and creating an environment for success for AMERICAN CITIZENS, not illegal aliens. Also, stop all the Identity Politics, and strive to do things that improve the country for all Americans, not just Blacks, LGBT, Women, Muslims, Illegals, etc.
