We Need WW2 Teamwork Again Now
Let’s show the American people we can unite our party. Both sides will respect that. After all, if we cant unite the “left” how can we unite the country?May 2019
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 will make it very difficult for any side to prevail in any effort.
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. The greatest generation citizens resigned to do their parts to defeat German Nationalism with a spirit of teamwork and without ego. Now we have a combination of corporatism and American Nationalism to defeat.
We all know there’s an election in 2020. Trump knows exactly how long he has to completely take this government over – from the justice department installations to the election fixing with our enemies. Trump is working every day to have our democracy be gone before the 2020 election. Why? Trump knows the term that follows his presidential term may be a prison term.
I still see a way to get the current GOP Senate to vote to impeach Trump, but only after the Dems change the way they are running their campaigns . 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.
The viable candidates and those who really want to work to save this country should meet in a room and settle on who will be the Democratic candidates for president, vice president, chief of staff and district attorney. Then our Team America pools resources and gets to work – not only to beat Trump – but to show the American people what they can do for the citizens of the USA.
Will this surprise tactic of running for president with a VP and cabinet in place – work? How can it not work?
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 be there for them on our side because right now we don’t even know. They will remain tuned out to our overtures until we decide. Till next July? Really? It will be too late by then.
The big idea is to not preach to the choir and get GOP constituents in red states liking what they are seeing and hearing. Imagine a team 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 - powerful out-of-the-box strategy. (You got to give him that.)
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 Kelly Anne 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.
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 in Team America too.
There’s no room for it’s all about me now.
