The #Democratic Party - with two left-wing radicals in charge of the DNC and no one at the (political) helm - is in free fall and its collective vision has morphed into one of anger, resistance and lawlessness. From promoting sanctuary cities to deciding for all Americans who gets into the ladies room, the Democrats’ political strategy has devolved into one large, irritating protest of all things Republican or the least bit conservative in nature. But is that any way to run a crab shack, let alone a political party?
Democratic Party radical, not rational
The Democratic Party’s liberal base has radicalized, seemingly bent on chasing moderate and conservative-leaning Democrats from the hate-fest that has become its acidic nest.
“Resist!” That is the new rallying cry of the Ku Klux Klan’s historical home for spoliticking. Gone are sensible debates that promote a vision of unity. Missing in action are the plebes of plausible policy, replaced by angry, often violent protesters of rule of law. No to all Trump nominees is the party's collective chant. Open the borders and enforce political correctness but hyper-regulate American businesses and jut about everything else save Democratic politicians. That’s the message of the Democratic Party in 2017.
Democrats defend 25 of 33 Senate seats in 2018
Already in the minority following disastrous #Election Results in November, Democrats must defend 25 Senate seats in 2018, while only eight Republicans are up for reelection. Perhaps protesting mild-mannered Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch seems like a good idea today, but is that something that will resonate with the average voter in 19 months? Of course not; there is no there, there.
Will voters celebrate the Democrats’ valiant fight for open borders and bathrooms in 2018? Those still unclear on these fundamental policy issues should revisit 2016 election results - at all levels.
Traditional Democrats being pushed further left
Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, Montana Sen. Jon Tester, and other Democrats running for reelection in states that Pres. Trump won last year might want to replace their message of resistance with one of substance. The American people will make political decisions based on Trump’s standing on national security, the economy, jobs and health care. If the Democrats have any ideas about how to make things better, other than chanting “resist”, they need to roll them out now. However, in reality, the Democratic Party is still clickety-clacking down the tracks in the wrong direction. No ideas of their own, just resistance via violent protest and angry faces while prepping and prodding their allies in mainstream media to publish and broadcast more anti-Trump stories.
This is a strategy that will greatly extend the Democrats’ landslide losses. If pleasing its increasingly leftist base remains the Democratic Party’s vision, voters may see a Republican-led filibuster-proof Senate in the crystal ball for 2018. #Democrat
