I can express my view point with the David vs Goliath story.
Dems = David. Smaller, but smarter, swifter, ethical with empathy for those who struggle for a better life.
Reps = Goliath. Big, strong, but a total moron. Only one rule. Win; all other priorities are rescinded.
- If David tries to beat Goliath at being bigger & stronger, David looses every time.
- If David uses his intelligent, David beats Goliath as long as David stays smart and does not get cocky thinking he can out muscle Goliath
So what happened in 2016?
Dems thought they could beat Reps at their own game. Dems beleived they were bigger and stronger, and could beat Goliath in a physical battle of brute force, and they were shocked when the biggest and dumbest MF on the planet kicked their F'ing ass.
If Dem think they can beat Trump by adopting his methods, they will loose 110% of the time. Question: Would Trump waterboard a child if it guaranteed him a win? You bet he would in a NY minute, and he would not loose any sleep over that choice. Would Dems cross that line? I don't think so. Trump is willing to do and say things no others would even consider if it means he will win. For Trump, there is no line that can not be crossed if it means he gets to win. Just can't beat him doing that.
