The best thing democrats can do for this country is prevent Trump from running for the presidency again.
This will prevent internecine conflict in the republican party and guarantee a DiSantis win in 2024, hopefully with Governor Noem as his VP.
Either Trump or DiSantis would win of course, but not having the infighting will allow the right to conserve and focus their attention to saving the Republic and hopefully our lives and future as well.
We could get 8 years of DiSantis and 8 years of Noem if you all would make Trump ineligible for office.
So, keep up the good work!
Trump is the current post-facto criminal. DeSantis could be a new one. Both will kill our democracy if elected.
I still can't believe the so-called "christian right" swept the 'grabbing' Trump audio away so quickly AND the Democrats didn't make issue about it! We need to do better to hold Republicans accountable for who they promote!
We're a Republic, not a democracy.
Nothing to kill.
