      It's the other way around. They got the circular firing squad from us, and good riddance.

      Polling on the issues rather than on candidates shows that the public is ready for progressive change on almost everything except registering guns. Every gun safety measure short of that has public support ranging from significant to massive. What would you like? Climate Change, labor rights, women's rights, immigration, income inequality, institutional racism in housing, education, and jobs…We are ready.

      We just have to GOTV enough to overcome the gerrymanders in order to take and keep the House. We might need to nuke the Senate filibuster on legislation, and we definitely need to be ready to replace Scalia and Thomas on SCOTUS when their times come.

      Back off, man. I'm a logician.—GOPBusters™
