Left-wing Democratic leaders Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Democratic National Committee chair candidate Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., are seeking to rebuild a party that has been left in shambles by the Obama presidency.
The Democrats have lost majorities in the House and Senate and been obliterated by the Republicans at the state and local level since Obama assumed office in 2009. In a speech this week to progressive activists at a rally for Ellison's candidacy to lead the Democratic National Committee, Ellison and Sanders both said the party needed new leadership and noted that it had declined during recent years.
"Clearly, whatever the leadership of the Democratic Party has been doing over the last many years has failed, and we need fundamental change," Sanders said.
Ellison has as his main competition is Labor Secretary Tom Perez, who joined the campaign on Thursday.
Rebuild by splitting into a socialist and a Muslim party?
But this shows that the fight is not over and we need to stay alert and take the offensive, and the best way to do that is to convince and persuade with facts, not rants.
We need to offer the socialist/muslimeloving progs a one way ticked out of the USA, and in the process to revoke their citizenship, that is if they are legal.
Yep. On what basis could we trust any of them if 5-15% are already or will become radicalized? How can we tell which ones are already or will become radicalized? How many innocent, non-Muslim Americans must die before we decide to remove ALL the Muslims?
Ellison is a Muslim and if the Democrats think he is going to rebuild the Party they as a dumb as ever,he will take it deeper into oblivion,the Democratic party needs to be outlawed , they are destructive and have never done anything good for us and our nation, they proved that when they supported Obama for eight years as he went about trying to destroy us and everything we have worked so hard to build,people like Schumer and Reid were 100% behind our take down,Reid held up 150 bills sent to the Senate to be voted on but they were against Obama so Reid had them piled up on his desk and would not let them be considered for a vote,it was illegal but he thought he was above the law and he still does, even though he is gone,his attitude toward our laws is being carried on by the likes of what a lot of people consider an arrogant punk like Chuck Schumer who wants to threaten and browbeat any one who disagrees with his left wing anti American attitude.
The Democrats were "pretty much" OK until 1932, when FDR was elected and began running America off the rails of freedom toward socialism. At that time, America ceased as a republic and became, for all intents, a democracy. That democracy is very near to catastrophic collapse.
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the people discover they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy--to be followed by a dictatorship.”
― Alexander Fraser Tytler
they still don't get it . focus on : heterosexuals [there are more of them] , no particular race [ white privilege] , creating jobs here and you will get more votes than you could imagine
Unfortunately, these Dems have been successful enough to have created (with RINO help) a massive Welfare State. We conservatives will be REQUIRED to push as many able-bodied people as possible OFF the welfare rolls and INTO one (or two) of those many available jobs. Obamacare is likely the first test of this problem. Nothing will test the mettle of our side like taking away a government program already granted to millions- even an UNWORKABLE and ALREADY COLLAPSING program. Maybe that's the key: show how Obamacare is already on life support, and explain that we must kill it "as best we can for the least damage."
Rebuild? Rebuild what?
They still have the media in the bag. They still have Academia in the sack. They still have Hollywood and Dancing with the stars in their private outhouse. And they still have the republican party as their, now don't laugh, main opposition. They still own California and New York and Colorado and they still have the illegals voting for them. The wall has yet to be built, the military restored, Obamacare obliterated, Clinton prosecuted, jailed, Obama tried for treason and America is still a debtor nation, cops are shot, flags are burned, rich morons who play games for pay still take a knee, and fully half of the population would like to see Clinton park her big butt in the oval office.
I hope PRESIDENT Trump can lead the way in changing all of this. Time will tell, and quickly. Until then remember that Ryan is still Speaker, and McConnell is still majority leader. Both have tongues like a snake.
My advice to Donald Trump. Double down on security. Those who would do you harm are "Progressive Lunatics."
"Sanders, Ellison look to rebuild party decimated under Obama"
Oh, yeah- THAT'LL WORK!!! Just fine! Especially since they will have Nancy and Chuckie running the Congress, and ol' Barack (with a staff of hundreds???) running a "Shadow Government" from right there in DC!!! Talk about needing to DRAIN THE DC SWAMP...
Perfect example of the blind leading the blind.
My version is "...the blind leading the stupid..." or vice-versa.
