The Blue Wave is coming along strong. Already 39 elected offices nationwide have been snatched back from the Republicans. This is very good news for the country and its future. We’ve got a lot of problems to solve.
Getting rid of Donald Trump is the biggest problem facing America currently. But he’s not the only one who’s got to go. The entire Republican Party has become complicit in the continuous crime that has been Trump’s presidency.
Getting Republicans out of office has been a good idea since the post-Lincoln era, but it’s never had the urgency that it does now. The Republicans have sold this country down the river, for Vladimir Putin’s amusement and a lousy tax cut.
The entire country feels like the inside of a pressure cooker. There are signs of it everywhere. Mass shootings, nuclear weapons, etc. A 26-year-old Alabama native named Cameron Ross Burgess committed suicide on the lawn of the White House yesterday; fortunately for Trump, he was at the Mar-a-Lago in Florida, eating his charred steaks, and not in residence at the time of the incident.
It’s like a nightmare. We’re sick and tired of living in a nightmare.
This is why Democratic voters have come together in a gigantic and sweeping effort nationwide to retake our country from the people who have stolen it.
Our task has been made easier by Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court, who recently came up with a new congressional map, one that changed boundaries drawn by and tilted toward Republicans.
Before we can start implementing a sane congressional agenda, or anything else, we have to get back into power. To do that, we’ve got to raise awareness on need to understand that we’re up against it this year in terms of electoral math. The road to getting Democrats back behind the wheel of the House is difficult, and the math that puts us back in control of the Senate is downright challenging.
Another big problem is that Democrats are really having to fight for California this year, and not just against Republicans.
The far-left mistreatment of the national treasure Dianne Feinstein, who has given her entire life to serving the public, is hard even to write about, and shouldn’t be done by anyone with high blood pressure; suffice it to say, it was shoddy. They’re doing the same thing to the gifted J.B. Pritzker in Illinois.
It’s got to be the worst idea in the world to discourage our most able people from taking the reins of power.
At any rate, the dutiful Mike Pence warned conservatives Thursday that a “motivated” Democratic Party sees a chance to win congressional majorities in November and clean up the mess after Trump‘s policies get through failing.
Last month, Ted Cruz summed the case up well, for the first time in his life(except when he debated Bernie Sanders- that was also pretty funny).
“The left will be there, come November,” he ominously predicted. “They will crawl over broken glass to vote.”
You better believe it, Ted.
Still, we can’t count on the opposition to do it all for us, even when considering the endless string of debacles they’ve put us all through this year.
Leading Democrats have repeatedly stressed that their party’s candidates need to do more than criticize Trump, and this also applies to other Republicans.
“You cannot just run against Donald Trump,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said earlier this month. “And it is the job of we Democrats to put together a strong, cohesive, economic group of proposals aimed at the middle class and those struggling to get there.”
At the end of the day, it depends on us. How hard we work, how determined we are to fight.
In this world, we are defined by the sum of our choices and their consequences. Above and beyond all else, we are judged by the quality of the work we do.
Donald Trump doesn’t understand that, however, and none of the Republicans currently in the spotlight do either, save the ailing John McCain. They’ve got to go. And we’ve got to replace them.
The GOP’s gangrene has been steadily advancing for more than a hundred years at this point. It’s become a gigantic stressor on the corpus of the nation, and it’s got to be cut off.
In the future, it is the opinion of Millennial Democrats that there’s not going to be a Republican Party that much longer and that in the future it’ll be one set of progressive policies being pursued vs. another.
In the present, we need to fight for this future with everything we’ve got. That is what it’s going to take.
