How To Give The Senate a Supermajority of Republican Senators
We need to look at the need to replace Democrats in the Senate in purple states come election time; getting out and carrying our message to the people, presenting the good Trump has done in spite of the constant opposition not only from the left, which is something that is not surprising, although the disregard of the nation is, and within its own ranks, with people like McCain, Flake, McDonald, and others.
What is the largest hang up for Trump enacting his agenda? First, it is the fact that Senate rules make it impossible for a bill to be passed without 60 votes when the GOP holds only 51 seats, and Schumer telling his democratic senators that they can’t vote for anything that Trump wants, we are at the point we are now. How to fix this? We need to take a chapter out of the Democrats own playbook, get out and set up volunteers that are willing to share what the GOP stands for, it is not like the mainstream press is letting anyone know, if we do this, and at the current state the DNC is in, they would lose badly enough to give Trump a supermajority in both houses, just like Obama had his first two years.
Add to the problem of the Democrats in the Senate refusing to vote for anything that is on the Trump agenda, going to the extent of trying to hold us the voter’s hostage, shutting down the government and putting in a place of hardship our soldiers and others due to their petty bickering.
Add to this the Never Trump crowd, even though Trump is moving and getting things done, we have seen them push their support for left rather than give support to what the majority of their constituents wish, these people all need to go as well.
I am realistic enough to acknowledge that some places are a waste to work at, but many places the GOP has given up on, we have been shown by Trump that we can go back in and try to start taking them back from the grip the DNC has over them. There are purple states where Democrats won, flipping seats to the GOP will not be that difficult; for instance, look at Wisconsin and Senator Tami Baldwin, while Obamacare has been hurting the nation with the constant uprising in rates, the terrible coverage, the rising of deductions as well, rather than work on replacing the program, she like the rest of the Democrats put party over the American people and have fought to keep this boondoggle in place.
We can look at the outright lies by her to support her party line, like the claim she made that over 300,000 people were not able to vote due to Wisconsin voter ID laws, yet for some odd reason she could not provide a shred of evidence to support this, further, this outrageous claim was exposed as a falsehood by Politifact Wisconsin.
She and the DNC claimed it was due to this that Trump won Wisconsin. Seems she missed out the real reason was Clinton thought she had the state I lived in as an easy win, so did not bother coming to visit until the last second, Trump meanwhile made trip after trip selling his vision to the people of the state, it was this that won him the state, not a lack of people voting. Also, you take away Milwaukee and Madison, the rest of the state leans strong conservative.
Voter turnout in 2016 was reduced by approx. 200,000 votes because of WI’s photo ID laws. We need to oppose them: https://t.co/HpHYNDOs4P

This seemed to be a belief that was held by the left; if you look at The New Yorker, they ridiculed Trump for visiting states like Michigan and Wisconsin, in their words, found what he was doing both illogical and went against every common thought of how to campaign, and they weren’t alone, they along with the left, with political consultants like David Wasserman, of the Cook Political Report said Trump should focus on the non college graduates in Arizona, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio, and Wisconsin, yet in many cases it was the college grauduites who in many cases threw the votes over the top for Trump. The problem with this belief and the polls were after browbeating from the left, no one was willing to tell them they were willing to vote for Trump, they said nothing and voted as they pleased.
We see the same laziness from the left now, they have carried on the narrative so long in the press that they are actually beginning to believe their own narrative. While they may have some justification for this belief right now due to Trumps lower polling numbers, although they are rising slowly, if the Tax breaks, the economic outlook continues to brighten, unemployment continues the downward path and our GOP keeps rising, it will be too much for the press and the left to cover up. They may try to flip this and say that it is Obama who did this, but one has to ask, “If this was the case, why was it that very little changed until the day after he left office, then the stock market exploded, growth started to rise and unemployment began its downward spiral?”
So what do we need to do? First, we need to rid ourselves of cancer that is within the GOP, take these people out, the Never Trump Crowd and get rid of them in the primaries, a great place start is with old stalwarts that are showing day after day their LAST concern is what their voters want, like Lindsey Graham (SC), seems he forgot that he did not even pull one primary Presidental vote, Flake and McCain are out, good ridence to both of them, one was nothing but an obstructionist that took his personal issues with Trump over his own people who voted for him, the other a War hero who forgot what it was to serve the nation, instead in the last term he will serve in the Senate chose like Flake to put his animosity against Trump over the good of the nation.
At the current time in Arizona replacing Flake, Kelli Ward is the only one that I would throw my support behind. I know former Sheriff Joe Arpaio has spoken of throwing his hat in the ring, but he is so divisive I don’t see a way he would win outside of the county where was Sheriff for so long. We need this just to keep the GOP with a slim majority.
Democrats Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Sen. Claire McCaskill (MO), Sen. Joe Donnelly (IN), Sen. Joe Manchin (WV), Sen. Bill Nelson (FL), Sen. Jon Tester MT), Democratic Sen. Tina Smith (MN), and Sherrod Brown (OH). are all easily targettable, their holds are slim at best, with a little work we should be able to remove at least 3/4 of these people and switch their seats, thus giving another 6 or 7seats, this would set the Senate to at least 57 – 43 in favor of the GOP, that still is not enough.
What was shown in the last election by Trump is that more is possible, let’s look at senators that won by a slim majority, 55% or less in the last election, with a push Chris Murphy (CT), Ben Cardin (MD), Martin Heinrich (NM), Bob Casey Jr (PA), and Tim Kaine (VA), were not voted in by a large margin, if we could move one or even two of these seats to the GOP we could see the GOP them move to a 59 – 41 or possibly a 60 -40, this would put the GOP in a position to put in place what was promised to the voters without the Democrats having the ability to interfer. But even if the GOP holds a 57 to 43 advantage after this next election, the way to pressure is much easier then with the slim majority they hold now, but we need to vigilant, along with removing these seats from the Democrats make sure no GOP members lose their seats unless we have someone else to beat them in the primary, then aid in every way we can in the election this fall.
And please don’t forget Roger Wicker (Miss.) and Deb Fischer (Neb.), Dean Heller (NV), are currently fighting to hold their seats in this upcoming election, we need to back them up to ensure they hold their seats, we can’t afford to lose any.
We can do this, but we need you to be part of this next election process. Does not matter if you can’t get out and go door to door, we are going to bring in political players to aid in this, we will need financial help, people available to aid in running regional, state and city offices, others to man phones and other office work. The Democrats that have prided themselves that in spite of all the good Trump has done the press has gone out of their way to cover this up and just press on with the negative, isn’t it time that we teach them we can beat them at their own game, and we don’t need the press, lies and dishonest legislative leaders to aid us, all we need is Trump, Facts, and Our Spirit, will will show them come election time thhat we can beat them at their own game and aid in Making America Great Again!
