The Democratic Party needs to up its game for the 21st Century
You can also find previous episodes on YouTube here.
The Republicans are handing the Democratic Party the possibility of a wipe out blue wave across the entire nation as they prove their inability govern, their dereliction of duty. Unfortunately, Democrats are poised to pull defeat out of a potential victory because of the lack of new blood that is necessary to direct the way forward. The old methods just don’t work anymore.
Democrats recently came up with their new slogan; “A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future.” Are you kidding? Could it be any cheesier than that? That says nothing about fighting for the aggrieved. Trump’s “Make America Great Again” was not original but it sure had that ring that something was going to be done.
Democrats need a slogan that in one phrase tell Americans that they know their pain, know the cause, and will do something about it. What about something along the lines of “Reclaiming What Was Stolen: Your Job and Your Wealth.”
