I agree with you. It's a pretty sad state of affairs on both sides of the fence in Washington. I vote Democrat, but I can do little to change things in Washington. The state I live in keeps putting McConnell and Rand Paul in office. I would like to see many of the veterans in the Party gone, replaced with younger more progressive candidates. They need an aggressive platform supporting and attracting young Americans and the entire working class.

 

Both Parties have their hands far too deep into the corporate money trough, I've said that for years, but I do have to say that the Democrats are the least of the two evils, IMO.

Have to agree with the aspect of it being tough for Dems to do anything in Congress with repubs not supporting any legislation brought forward. Also concur that there are no high profile issues being brought forward and stand out leader. But trump is still hogging the airwaves. I’m watching him speak now in Penn and he’s making stuff up, calling people names, and his usual spiel. 

One positive factor for the Dems, is the grassroots level of support and elections which are taking place. I think some inroads are being made there on the state and the local level. 

Some have said that the Dems cannot just run against trump, but need to connect with voters on the local level...maybe some of that is starting to take hold. Let’s hope so.

Start with a good foundation and work your way up. 

 

Who will become a real leader?


They are making progress in local elections, let's hope they build on that. The Dems can't rest on their laurels and try and win elections this fall by people voting against trump and the Republicans, they need to put out a platform that attracts the middle class and all working Americans.

I agree,the Democrats seem to be asleep at the wheel, it may cost them too. I thought that they would starting to put out out an agenda by now for the elections coming this fall, they sorely need to.
