It’s time for liberals and progressives to take back the national conversation.
Liberals and progressives – both politicians and the news media – are spending entirely too much time on the defensive. Whether it’s politicians, pundits or everyday people having a conversation, the same old GOP arguments come up day after day after day. The lies have been debunked. Republicans DON’T CARE, they will just keep screaming BENGHAZI in an effort to CONTROL the conversation. Liberals and progressives are falling right into their trap.
LIBERALS AND PROGRESSIVES: NO MORE DEFENSE. Time for offensive moves. NOW!
Here are some common arguments that liberals and progressives spend too much time debunking instead of turning the GOP argument back on to them.
