In 2016, the dems blew it by forcing Hillary Clinton on us virtually unopposed. They chose the worst candidate that they could possibly choose. Then they were shocked when she lost. They decided that it was worth the risk. Nearly every other democrat was afraid to face her, because they knew that there would be hell to pay if she won. So you locked yourselves into Hillary and lost. Stupid mistake.
Now you are making an equally stupid mistake. You are locking yourselves into a platform that alienates the majority of Americans. Only the far left and progressives support most of the democratic agenda. Newsflash: The top priority of most Americans is not how we can better take care of foreign nationals. Very few American’s are focusing on better health care, education and opportunities for Guatemalan border crashers. People have their own circumstances to deal with. Libs, if you believe that Americans are going to rally around the platform of free health care for Haitians and Hondurans then bring it on! And enjoy four more years of President Trump.
Those would be the moderates. Unfortunately, I don’t see that any of them currently getting the nod. My biggest fear is that one of the radical socialists becomes the nominee and against all odds beats Trump.
Not in my book! I keep hearing that from Tea Party pure conservatives. I identify with much of Trump’s political ideology and pragmatism, as that’s very close to where I am. In that regard, I can assure you I am not even remotely to the left of Hillary.
Right now, all of the dems are fighting for the 20 percent on the far left. Leaving the 50 to 60 percent in the middle untouched. I think if someone such as Tulsi Gabbard were to not lock herself into this fight for the left, she could have an golden opportunity to seize the center.
