We Need WW2 Teamwork Again Now
Whoever wins the nomination should at least offer the VP office to the #2 candidate. Keep the base support from fizzling out, like it did when HRC chose Kaine not Bernie. Let’s show the American people we can unite our party. They will respect that.
After all, if we cant unite the “left” how can we unite the country?
We are at war in the USA. We are at war with foreign enemies that want to exploit our riches. We are at war with Trump’s GOP party that sells our rights and assets to the highest bidders. And at the same time, we are at war with each other – which makes it very difficult to prevail in anything.
I am old enough to remember first-hand the spirit of the WW2 generation. They were not the greed is good generation nor the it’s all about me generation. They were the greatest generation because they resigned to do their parts to defeat German Nationalism without ego and with a spirit of teamwork.
We all know there’s an election in 2020. But the way things are going, with our country being weakened every day – we are barely limping towards that election. Trump knows exactly how long he has to completely take this government over – from the justice department to election fixing. He’s working every day to have our democracy gone be end of this year. Trump knows the term that follows his presidential term is a prison term.
I see a way to get the current GOP Senate to vote to impeach Trump before Christmas. Some GOP senators are now whispering privately they want to abandon Trump. Let’s show those same GOP senators if they keep Trump as their figurehead they’ll have no shot in 2020. That’s the big idea here.
In September, after one more debate, the viable candidates meet in a room and settle on who will be the Democratic candidates for president, vice president, chief of staff and district attorney. No one has to storm a beach.
Will this surprise tactic of running for president with a VP and cabinet in place – work? Better to think how can it not work.
First, the optics are spectacular. Instead of 20 candidates telling undecided American voters why they are best for the top job – we present one well-prepared team, ready on day one to get the actual jobs done for all Americans. Even MAGA people will go for that. They know they are being lied to. They just don’t know who will even be our candidate because we don’t know. In case they won’t like whom we choose, they stay now with what they know – Trump. They will remain tuned out to our overtures until we decide.
The big idea is to not preach to the choir and get our GOP constituents in red states to start liking what they are seeing and hearing. Imagine 20 energetic candidates all campaigning simultaneously for the ideas we need to transform this country. That's never been seen here before. It's like Trump that way. This is powerful out-of-the-box thinking.
Now imagine the same-old, same-old – what we have now. More debates after-which we neither learn much nor convert voters to our common causes. More circular firing squads. And all the while, Trump team – from KellyAnne to Bill Barr – speaks in unison. We are strategically handicapped because we play by rules, conventions and traditions while Trump does not.
If we had fought WW2 this way, we'd all be speaking German here today.
So I put together a team ( below) that cannot lose. It doesn’t have to be this team exactly. But Trump would have a 0% chance against this team. And when the GOP Senate sees that clearly, they are going to go for impeachment. They won’t even want Trump running.
Then Trump can be out by this Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone.
I realize not every candidate will want to leave their current position to work in the 2021 cabinet that leads America into a modern future. But they can be offered posts. I sense a job for Michele Obama is in there too.
How does this fresh idea look you? Does it look like Team America 2020? This is easy folks. There’s no room for it’s all about me now.
Why NOT RUN AS A TEAM? TEAM AMERICA 2020

It’s all about the money right now. Very soon that should change however. It’s going to be clean food and clean energy if we are going to survive as a species. Look for rising food prices to signal the onset of a new – or final – dynamic for the human race. Why is it all about money now? For that answer – this post is a must read.
