For Democrats, even a rampaging megalomaniac like Trump won’t bring them together

Two-thirds of Americans think the Democrats are out of touch — including nearly half of Democrats themselves.

The Secular Jurist

The news just keeps getting worse for the Democratic Party.  Not only have they suffered the landslide defeats of the 2010 and 2014 midterms, their humiliating loss in the 2016 presidential election, and the severe ass-kicking Republicans have dealt them in state and local elections all across the country, new polling results show that the once-mighty political party of the center-left to be in the death-throes of an existential crisis.

Normally in America’s two-party system, the opposing party benefits – through increasing popular support – when the party in power goes off the rails of moderation by enacting extremist policies.  In theory, then, Democrats should be unifying as well as drawing support from independents and even some Republicans right now considering that the rampaging megalomaniac Donald Trump is leading the nation from the White House.  However, that expected trend doesn’t appear to be happening.  A new…

    WE ARE ALL HANGING BY A THREAD HERE IN THE USA, REGARDLESS OF POLITICAL PARTY OR NO PARTY. THE PROBLEM IS COLLECTIVISM AND BEING AN INDIVIDUAL IS OBSOLETE. FOR DECADES NOW, THE REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN ONE PARTY, THEY JUST DID NOT COME OUT AND SHOUT IT OUT FROM THE ROOF TOPS. WE ARE NO LONGER A REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC, WE ARE NOW A PONZI SCHEME OF A POLICE STATE.

  2. I agree, futuret. Both the Democrats and Republicans are run by greedy Wall Street oligarchs whose only concern is squeezing as much wealth out of ordinary Americans as they possibly can.

    • Well, hardly any of US have any wealth left to squeeze and so now, it is time to go to war! Isn’t that the usual ‘playbook’ of this shithole? Yeah! That would be it. Impoverish the citizens, bankrupt the country, head into a Depression, go to war then repeat the process.

      • I guess that about sums it up, Shelby. Our only hope is that the Russians and Chinese succeed in crashing the dollar before Trump launches and all out nuclear war. I believe it’s seriously touch and go at the moment. Thanks for your comment.

        I REALLY DO NOT LIKE TO SEE WAR, IN FACT AS A CHRISTIAN I AM COMMANDED NOT TO APPROVE OF WAR, BUT THIS OLD LADY OF 63 CAN TELL YOU THIS; I CAN HANDLE BEING PUMPED WITH RADIATION AND FINALLY BE PUT TO DEATH, THAN I CAN TOLERATE THIS EVOLUTIONARY CONTINUATION OF EVIL. CHURCHES AND SYNAGOGUES WHERE I LIVE ARE BECOMING DIRT POOR, JUST BY HELPING PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF. WE SPEND MORE TIME WITH AGENCIES THAN WITH LIVING LIFE OR SOMETIMES EVEN LOOKING FOR WORK.

    Yes. The Democrats keep pretending to be a movement for left wing change – but pretty much everyone knows they are just the flipside of the capitalist/military/industrial power clique that runs the country for the benefit of the 1%. At least you know what you’re going to when you vote Republican.
