With the historic win of Donald Trump to the White House, not to mention the GOP majorities in Congress, the Democratic Party is at a low state.
With all the corruption, lying, and insider games they pulled during the election, you’d think they would have won by a landslide. Instead the American people sent them a message that they were done with politics as usual. They elected an outsider to shake up Washington and bring real change to our country.
The Democrats are left with a tough choice. In order to survive the coming years, they’ll need to clean house. The radical agenda they’ve been pushing in recent years has only alienated them from regular Americans. Not to mention the exposing of corruption within the party.
Unless the jettison their toxic Socialist ideology and appoint honest leaders, they may not have much of a future.
Or they could listen to Harry Reid and do nothing. That’s always an option. And this is where the good news comes into play, Reid and the majority of Democrats think their party is just fine. I’ll get more into why this is good news after you read the shocking reasoning the democrats are using for not making any changes to how they do things.
Senate Democrats are about to get rolled on Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks. They could spend years in the minority. And instead of the GOP collapse that many expected on Nov. 8, it’s now Democrats soul-searching about what went wrong.
But as Harry Reid prepares to leave the Senate this month after 34 years in Washington, he says everything is just fine with his party, thank you.
To hear Reid tell it, the party’s electoral collapse wasn’t a result of poor messaging or even a bad candidate. It stemmed from looser campaign finance rules, FBI Director James Comey and the influence of a few powerful individuals — namely the Koch brothers, his long-running nemeses. The outgoing Senate minority leader is unapologetic on behalf of his party, and remains resolute that Democrats don’t need to chart a new political course after their 2016 debacle.
This is exactly why America has grown sick of insider politicians, democrat or otherwise. After such an obvious and stunning loss, they don’t plan to change, but simply make excuses. This actually helps republicans. The democrats are so far gone, that they will keep repeating the same mistakes and allow the Republican party to continue to win elections.
Look at what Reid said: it’s everybody else’s fault but ours. That’s what we’ve been hearing in Washington for years. Americans hate Congress because all they do is blame the other side. Even Obama’s made excuses for why things haven’t worked out as he promised.
The fact that the DNC is at such a crucial time in their history makes these excuses even more damning. The Democrats can change now and return to true American values or they can double down on their insider games, identity politics, and radical social ideas that drive them from American voters.
According to Harry Reid, that’s what they are going to do. I maintain that if they do not change their platform now, there won’t be a DNC come four years time.
