          I want my POTUS & Co. to fight for the following, as a start…

          Universal healthcare, guaranteed housing, childcare for all, college for all, massive public transit projects in all the major cities, raise the federal wage to a livable wage, ban corporations from buying up housing, 75% minimum tax on rich.

            Ok. Can we start with an acknowledgement that there are policies we can champion that are more than “not Trump”, since that’s what you asked for?

              There are always policies they run on. It’s a matter of believing or seeing them follow through with them.

                It would be nice if we actually had policies we could champion instead of just “not Trump”

                There are always policies they run on.

                So…you were wrong, then? There are policies we can champion, but you just don’t like them? Or you don’t believe they actually happened? Because many of these are in the past, which means “seeing them follow through with them” won’t work anymore.

                  I just continue to hear excuses from Biden and Dems. “It’s too hard. We tried. We’ll try again when X condition is met. Sorry, donate more to defeat the Republicans.”

                    Again, these are policies that actually happened. So are you acknowledging that there are, in fact, policies we can champion which are more than “not Trump?”

                    You can acknowledge that they exist without endorsing them, and I’d prefer not to chase your divergent threads until you can directly address the response I provided to you.
