  •  Which is why Dems _must_ avoid culture issues (3+ / 0-)

    People who feel like their whole cultural identity is under attack are going to react out of fear, see everything in black and white, and get hysterical.

    Every Democrat who sneers at "mouth-breathing" "redneck" "penis replacers" is playing into the hands of the opposition and interfering with electing more Democrats. I've seen, here, someone advocate making gun owners as despised as smokers.

    Never buy into the other side's framing. Instead of ridiculing someone's ancestry, hammer on the point that an overwhelming majority of gun owners agreed with some of the legislation that just died. Make it crystal clear that the targets of the laws will be people that have nothing to do with rural gun ownership.

    Freedom isn't free. Patriots pay taxes.
