It was supposed to be a big night for the Democratic party last Tuesday. A house seat was on the line during a special election in Georgia. The election was seen as a referendum on the Trump presidency. Millions of dollars from outside of the state came pouring in an effort to help the Democratic candidate, Jon Ossoff, win the race. When all was said and done, the Republican candidate, Karen Handel, walked away as the stunning winner. If there ever was an event that should serve as a wake up call for Democrats, this election should be it. The Democrats continue to lose elections. On top of that, they have lost several legislative seats and governorships in the past 8 years or so. You could say that party is on a serious losing streak.
Since the night of the election, I have seen some discussion about this problem with the party and what to do going forward especially with the midterms coming up in just over a year. The answer is rather simple if you ask me. Since the election, the Democratic party has been nothing but obstructionists. They seem to be totally focused on removing President Donald Trump from office. There has not been any evidence and probably never will be that the president colluded with the Russians to influence last November’s election. That doesn’t stop several Democrats from being hell-bent on finding some shred of evidence that Trump was involved. One would think the party would finally realize this investigation or should I say witch hunt is not going anywhere. Impeachment will not happen!
Several Republicans are working hard to fix the health care bill and make it better for millions of United States citizens. Democrats are really being obstructionists is this process as well. Instead of working with Republicans to create a better bill, Democrats continue to deny the fact that their signature piece of legislation, Obamacare is a complete failure. Many Democrats are still happy with this bill and in a serious state of denial over its failure.
When it comes to important issues, what are the Democrats more concerned about? The Democrats in my area are more concerned about climate change, raising the minimum wage to 15 dollars an hour and giving rights to illegals. Those issues may be important to some, but I want to know you and your party’s plan for the economy. What are your specific plans? Is it to constantly scare people into not voting for the Republicans? I recently heard a Democratic politician talk about Trumpcare and how many millions will die if this bill gets passed. So what is your alternative to the bill?
Until the Democrats start focusing on issues that really matter to people and come up with reasonable solutions, this party will continue to lose elections with no end in sight. People are not dumb and understand what today’s Democratic party is all about. The party needs to stop being a bunch of radical hateful leftists and move towards the center. Maybe new leadership could help. Perhaps dumping Nancy Pelosi would be a good idea. I left the party about 10 years ago and it may have been one of the better decisions I have ever made. The party is slowly becoming out of touch with many Americans. The last presidential election should have been a major wakeup call for the party. Maybe the Georgia election will finally be the hammer that hits the Democrats in the head. The party is losing voters with no end in sight.
