    better plan other than that we live in a democracy. Enough of your fellow voters don't see it as you do. So you've got to give them things you don't like if you want them to give you things you like (such as a higher minimum wage). Either figure out a way to rid the ranks of Congress of these type of people, or negotiate with the ones we've got, or don't negotiate at all and get nothing done. Those are the 3 options.

      which includes "Democratic" pollsters who keep getting these "feelings" that are completely against what the overwhelming majority of Americans want. Hence, maybe it's time to take the fight to all of the "consultants" who say they speak for us, but don't.

          the 1% has waged class warfare against us, so it's time to wage class warfare back against them. I'd like to see us add "influence the gatekeepers" to our other tactics.
