In his analysis of the book “It’s Time to Fight Dirty”, Dr. John Messerley explains the “prisoner hesitation theory” which means in common parlance, “If your opponent plays dirty and you play nice, you will become a steamroll, you will suck one.” In that case, you have no choice but to fight the fire with the fire, or you will dominate. ” In his 2018 book, David Faris suggests that Democrats could take bold action if they win the 2020 presidential election and are under the control of Congress. Without the need for a new constitutional amendment, the book suggests that Democrats can:
Cancel Philibuster so that any bill can pass in the Senate with 50 votes and a whip
Make DC a state, which will add two black Democratic senators to the Senate
Make Puerto Rico a state, which will add two Latino Democrats to the Senate
Divide California into multiple states to add more Democrats to the Senate
Extend the Supreme Court to 11 (or more) judges and appoint a 40-year-old president
They can then reform the franchise:
2-week early voting is required daily from 6am to 10pm
Validate pre-registration of 17 year olds across the country
Prohibit states from passing voter-ID laws or imposing other unconstitutional voting requirements
Intimidating voters is a federal crime
Make election day a national holiday for federal employees (and others)
Doubles the size of the House (and has multiple member districts with proportional representation)
Faris warned Democrats in 2018 that if they won the 2020 election, they would have to fight hard, be smart and be willing to bend or remove rules and regulations that undermine democracy. However, Democrats, especially President Biden, have refused to fight the Trump Republican Party’s corrupt, dishonest, violent agenda.
Donald Trump’s violent, dark, chaotic character threatens the lives of Americans. His malignant narcissism is spreading like terminal cancer through the Republican Party. People are dying because of Trump’s toxic existence, and careers are being destroyed. During the Covid-19 epidemic, Trump compromised with American public health by lying about the dangers posed by the virus. He broke the epidemic prevention playbook set up by the Obama administration, discouraged wearing masks, promoted fake therapeutics and disrespected epidemic medical professionals and promoted his cowardly support to the medical team.
