I have come to believe the only way to really ensure any American culpable or complicit (remember it’s illegal to not report a felony — Mitch McConnell) in the Russia effort to elect Trump, is to turn public opinion against the conspirators and enablers so strongly there are pitchforks in the streets (metaphorically speaking, of course).
I am not sure, however, what tactic(s) can be used to flip the nut-bar 30% of people who are completely on the Trump-train. I don’t mean we need to flip them to Democrats — actually I don’t want to flip many of them to Democrats (racists wouldn’t fit in). I would like to see them at least find the classic patriotism that once held us together around a single common concept — being an American. This will be no easy task, as I have been hearing reports of polls showing increased approval of Putin by some Americans!
I think probably the best way to change minds is to take over media — pour money into left-wing radio shows and get them in markets that don’t have any media options other than Rush and his type. Maybe we can convince Tom Steyer (or others) to buy out media outlets that pour out extreme conservative opinions all day — often in areas where that’s this only talk radio available — and add or change programming to be more centrist in its message.
I am not against Russia, perse’, just against tactics that make my vote less valuable. My vote was already margin at best, but it feels even more margin — and this is what we need to make the 30% hard righters understand — that really, in the end they are throwing away thier freedom and right at self-governance by following Trump and ilk down the corruption rabbit hole.
