    current Congressmen/women.  This is theft; it always has been; and it MUST end through federal legislation!  

    It is time for going on the offense.  ReTHUG successes have had a hell of a lot to do with being absolutely audacious in their legislative initiatives...it is long past time to "out-audacious" them and push back.  

    Additionally, I believe the populist card should be played...ReTHUGs are not above massaging the grievance mentality of some Americans with trumped-up appeals to emotion to gain the political power they want.  A populist appeal with the TRUTH is the way to win the votes of those who side against their economic and class interests.

    I hate to say it but...Heuy Long, for all his faults, knew the power of that kind of appeal for certain voters.
