No one thought at this point in the 2016 election Trump had a chance. I’m thinking that lack of seriousness may be being repeated by the top contenders trying to outflank each other to the left. Sure I want all that stuff but voting is a practical matter.
Republicans vote with their heads, not their hearts. What will win in 2020 is the right mix of doable healthcare and economic reform that will bring Obama/Trump voters back into the fold and pull more disgruntled Republicans who find Trump’s ways as repulsive as we do but just won’t admit it in public.
This is a touchy issue sure to rattle diehard Progressives and that’s exactly my intention. I’ve put my heart on the shelf until after the election. I hope the leading candidates can come to a consensus and worry more about what is needed to win the day on Election Day 2020 and less about being the Progressive du jour in an attempt to get money. I also hope some of the liberal media will stop attacking viable Democratic candidates who might not be their preference at this time. Fight Trump, not each other.
