Seems to me the lesson has not been learned by the fake liberal Dems, BMGer types, and smug media people reacting to the Trump win.
These people – “these people” includes you people – believe all they have to do is get the average person to understand how racist Donald Trump is and how dangerous he can be. Once Joe Six-Pack sees this he’ll understand and vote for Democrat next time around. Simple.
What Schmucks. It’s the economy stupid. Period. Everything else is a place to expel anger. People are worse off than their blue collar and middle class parents and grandparents with little hope of retiring to a comfortable life in Florida as they did.
It’s the economy stupid. Not the statistical economy but the real economy. It is sucking for more and more people.
Sure the Democratic party is aware of it and yes they want to fix it and yes they will get to it but first everyone has to loudly and undeniably confirm their allegiance and true inner-feelings with a list of social and cultural issues. And then maybe they can fix the usury student loan rates used to fund the government. WTF
In most states it is tough to be a Democratic congresswoman with factory closings and economic decline in the district yet can’t get support from her party unless she leads a Planned Parenthood or gun control march down main street.
The liberal elite does not understand that the same congresswoman is working for everyone at home and each person has his and her own priorities like elderly parents, disabled children, housing, living wages, and employment opportunities.
Instead we have Katherine Clark wasting her meager political capital on crap that means little in her district but her makes her the darling of the clueless Dem elite, gets her name in the paper, and invites to functions with celebrities.
Gun control? GUN CONTROL?? – Oh wait, she got to hang out with John Lewis and some national face time.
Nobody in Burlington or Woburn or Medford or Revere cares Katherine. Accept the ones who own guns.
Pathetic. I’m telling you folks – she is beatable in the next democratic primary. Perhaps a dem takes her on as an independent?
And then to top it all off you a-holes nominate Hillary. Everyone warned you. The Obamas, The Kennedys, Lis Warren, me, and on it goes.
That’s why Donald is president.
But anyway the Dems have to quit demanding their social issues suck up all the energy.
It’s not about disfavoring the social issues it’s about remembering the party has other children. These are the voters who are moderate or more liberal than conservative yet least effected by the liberal agenda. They have issues too you know. and if they think they are losing their standard of living because of the liberal elite and their policies, well, as Richard Nixon said to Hunter S. Thompson “Fuck the poor.” You can’t blame people for thinking that way. That’s how the super rich feel about everyone.
So what’s the plan?
