With only 18 Days left before Americans go to the polls with a chance to reclaim part of our nation’s government, the Republican Reich have abandoned campaigning on their much touted economic accomplishment that gushed up instead of trickling down. Instead they are working to stir up hatred with the cry "Caravan and Kavanaugh". Here’s what that’s about.

Yes, it really helps when long-time Republicans start singing our song. Even though they may not sing it as well, their new-found sincerity can be convincing. Max Boot is another, and to some extent George Will. And guess what, Michael Cohen is not advising as loudly as he can from where he is that everyone should vote Democratic!

I just received my absentee ballot today. I`ll fill it out and return it on Monday. I`m hoping to retain our Democrat Senator and to get rid of the Republican state representative for my area. We also have the Governor's race and hoping to flip from Republican to Democrat.

Fear is a great motivator, GOP uses it well to incite emotion, and then calls Dems fear-mongers when they mention anything at all that can be fear-creating.........GOP opposite world of course

That caravan has been in process for a long time. Really, when you think about it, the conditions those folks are fleeing; gangs, violence, death and seeking only life and safety, are not of recent creation. They go back to Nixon/Kissinger and their policy of propping up right wing dictatorships all over South America, a policy continued by every republican administration since that have simply destroyed the chance to have a simple, decent life in many countries. We did that, America, or more precisely fools who cared more then, as they do now, about ideology than they do people.

Right now it makes a handy deflection from the issues republicans, trump want to hide from, want the American people to not be thinking about before the midterms. The only thing that has surprised me has been a couple statements about how they intend to go after "entitlements" like Social Security, which is no such thing, it is a defined mandatory pension plan and always has been, employers and employees all required to contribute to. Every Congress since inception has raided that fund leaving behind iou's that none of them have ever repaid. Were they to do so, with interest or without, that fund would be solvent in perpetuity. Removing that ridiculous cap on taxable earnings would help too. But talking about going after those programs as if they were welfare to pay for their insane tax giveaway to the rich before the midterms seems suicidal almost. And then there's McConnell talking about taking another run at the only insurance many people have, the ACA, if they maintain their majority. I don't get why they'd be that stupid right now.

Unless they know the fix is in. Unless they still think even trump's poorest supporters haven't figured out yet that without the ACA they'd have no insurance at all. The ads I've seen seem to take that tack. Right now, I'm at my fatigue point, happens every year, I am so sick of those dripping with contempt ads, I just want to crawl in a hole until it's over. AFTER I vote. There was an amazing Mother Jones article https ://www.mothe rjones.com/ politics/2018 /10/the-mos t-important-election -of-our-lives-1/? with which I agree. I've been voting since 1972 and I've always considered elections important but this one has more significance than most. Even just taking the House can stop the republicans in their tracks for most of their agenda, except politicizing the federal courts. If you can find time to read it, it's worth it. What a mess these red fools have made. It'll take years to clean up. But we can. We will.

Yes, scare tactics are what they (R) are using, rather than how the Dems feel about issues.
It's tantamount to get out and vote!!!!

Steve Schmidt: I have seen Steve over the years past. While I do know that his past was as a republican, I feel that he has changed from those days. My feeling is that he now opposes what the Drumpf, his minions & GOP are doing to this country. 



The "Caravan" are made up of people seeking and wanting a better life for themselves and their families. What is wrong with that? Nothing. Just like our ancestors came to this country seeking a good life. we are a country of immigrants. 



I don't know about you all in PP and C2, but I am agreeing that "Outrage fatigue is real". I watch the MSNBC News and I do get it, unfortunately. sigh... I am not blaming MSNBC at all. Just the Drumpf, GOP and their ilk for what they are doing to this country.



I voted by absentee ballot today for the very first time. I have always liked going to the polls and voting. Fun! lol.

Funny how this happens just before the elections or how it is all of sudden noticed. Who is going to get their fingers chopped over this? Oh I forgot. It's a non choppable offense.

Two articles that make the immigrants' lives and risks to reach our border more real and human:

“Caravan and Kavanaugh”? The whole idea behind this riling up of people – no one in his right mind would call this a campaign slogan – is so vile that even some (former) Republicans speak out against it. That should give Americans an idea of how low Drumpf and GOP have sunk. Drumpf has had a bad effect on almost anything, including ‘rock bottom’. Every time we think he’s hit it, he manages to lower the standards even more.

The worst thing is that his hardcore base will gobble it all up. It’s so sad to see that hate-filled cries like “Caravan and Kavanaugh” are the only thing that’ll energize them. Hate seems to be the only thing that keeps them going.

This is NO TIME to give up, NO TIME to get numb, NO TIME to roll with the punches. This is a time to STAND UP, to RESIST, to PERSIST, to FIGHT BACK!!!

Agree with Freya 100%. We need to fight back against these as*holes with all of their foolish lies. The only way to do it is to get out there and vote the Democrats into office to start taking back the control of it. We MUST. If we don't we certainly will be suffering way worse than we are currently suffering today. 
Thanks TomCat

all of our families made their way here to the US in our Ancestry.
These folks are needing a better life too. they only make $3.00 a day. Not enough to live,
our "Statue of Liberty " Says Give me your tired, poor your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
e wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamo beside the golden door"
We need to welcome these people!!
Not treat them like TRUMPY Does!
Thank you
