Why wait until November to vote against Trump?
And why waste your primary vote on Biden, who is not facing any real competition?
During the next few months, millions of Democrats in open primary states like South Carolina and Minnesota can take bold, strategic action to help defeat Trump by joining moderate Republicans and independents in voting for Nikki Haley.
You can still vote for Biden in November.
The most important thing that patriotic Americans can do during the next five months to stop Trump’s dictatorship is to help Haley stay in the race.
Here are seven reasons why Democrats voting for Haley in their state’s Republican primaries would help defeat Trump:
1. She Drives Him Crazy
Despite her gentility and poise, Haley is hitting the trigger points of Trump’s rage hard by telling courageous truths about his dementia, incompetence and failure. This incites his anger, making him more unhinged and less appealing to swing voters that he needs to win the November election.
2. Time is On Her Side
The Republican National Convention is five long months away. If she stays in the race, Haley, youthful and strong, would run Trump ragged and wretched. He would be a far weaker candidate when facing Biden for the grueling presidential election.
3. Trump’s Sexist Attacks on Haley Will Repel GOP Women
Keeping Haley in the race as long as possible will prolong Trump’s repulsive sexist attacks on her. Many more Republican women will vote for Biden.
4. Erode Trump’s Funding and Focus
Trump will spend tens of millions fighting Haley. Meanwhile, Haley is draining money from moderate Republicans and conservative business leaders, who are rightfully fearful of the corrupt Putin-style kleptocracy that Trump’s second term would bring.
5. Non-fascist Fallback Should Trump Die
In the event that Trump has a stroke or dies, Haley could replace him, but only if she stays in the race. Otherwise, Trump’s MAGA movement would select a younger fascist, DeSantis or Cruz, who would be just as dictatorial a president.
6. Haley Winning the Nomination Would End Trump’s Fascist Insurrection
Haley has stated: “I think what happened on January 6 was a terrible day, and I think President Trump will have to answer for it.” If she won the nomination, Americans would not have to worry that she would incite armed extremists to intimidate and threaten election workers. Or undermine our democracy by lying about winning if she lost. She would not organize criminal slates of fake electors in states with GOP controlled legislatures to attempt a second January 6 coup in 2024. She would not incite a civil war.
7. Biden stands a better chance of beating Haley Than Trump in November
If Haley manages to beat the odds and wins the nomination, Trump’s MAGA base will HATE her! After six months of hearing anti-Haley “RINO” diatribes, millions of Trump loyalists would lose their motivation and vote for Kennedy or stay home. Razor thin margins in swing states make it highly likely that Biden would win if even 5% of 2020 Trump voters chose not to vote for Haley. At the same time, many independents and moderate Republicans who voted for Haley would also be attracted to third party candidates. A January 25-29 Quinnipiac poll shows that in a 5-person race, Biden beats Haley with 36% of the fractured vote to Haley’s 29% and Kennedy’s 21%, with 3% each for West and 2% for Stein.

I have known and written about Donald Trump longer than any journalist working today. More than 40 years ago, I was the reporter first conned by his fake “John Baron” alias into putting him on the Forbes 400.
Trump has proven himself, time and time again, to be capable of any con. Most recently, this includes scamming the 90% of the Republicans who voted for him in this year’s Republican primaries into believing the outrageous lie that he won the 2020 election.
These same voters will knowingly vote for America’s first dictator as long as they feel he is THEIR dictator. If he wins or steals the 2024 election, they will, as Hitler’s followers did in 1933, support his pre-announced mass arrest of political opponents, journalists, protesters and other such “vermin” because they believe that this is necessary to avenge his grievances. And theirs.
The stakes of the 2024 election are too high to ignore. That’s why I, as founder of Progressive Source Communications (and the award-winning Sonoma Independent), just launched the Progressive Source PAC, and our Stop Trump Dictatorship public awareness campaign.
Unaffiliated with any party or candidate, our PAC is crowd sourcing funding to buy carefully targeted, compelling YouTube video ads. Our first one-minute video, Dems Vote Haley to Beat Trump in SC (below) launched on February 5 and already has more 100,000 views in Democratic-leaning counties in South Carolina.
Next week, we will launch a similar direct web video ad campaign in the open primary, majority Democrat state of Minnesota. Our cost efficient ads over YouTube, the world’s largest social network, is being seen by viewers while they are “leaning back” to view other YouTube videos, instead of “leaning in” to pay attention to news.
Helping our effort by donating here might be the best investment you can make this year to stop Trump. Every $10 donated will allow us to show a Dems Vote Haley YouTube video, customized by open primary state, to more than 300 voting age adults. Every $1,000 donated will pay to show the video to more than 30,000 adults.
The time is now to step up to defend American democracy against the most dangerous fascist movement in our history. Help defeat Trump. Join us.
