This is not a standard midterm election. And if Progressives do not win Midterm 2018, it will prove that the lies, hate, nativism, nationalism., sexism, xenophobia. and misogyny is the way for a minority to scare a majority into supporting the opposition.
Let's first tackle a lie that is not an October Surprise, just a lie. Congress has adjourned and there is no way to get a tax cut through before the election. Fortune reported it as follows.
> President Donald Trump announced a new 10% tax cut would come into effect before the midterms, intended only for the middle class, not for businesses—nor the rich.
> Congress isn’t in session, congressional leaders haven’t heard about it, nothing has been drafted, and Trump seemed to have invented it from whole cloth on Oct. 20, based on a confirmation provided by a White House spokesperson who spoke to CNBC.
So here is the October Surprise Trio.
- Withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty
- The caravan of brown people/terrorists and MS-13 coming to storm America.
- The orchestrated stock market fall used to blame the fear of a blue wave.
