The incredible shrinking Democratic Party

Thursday , July 12, 2018 - 9:11 AM

The plot of a 1957 movie was that a man discovered he was shrinking because of some mysterious atomic force. We have a similar event happening today in American politics, the Democratic Party is shrinking not so much in the number of registered voters as in those who can believe in what their national leaders are advocating.

This is not your grandpa’s political party, not the one that believed in American values and patriotism and fair play even in politics. Today’s “Democrats” are more concerned with mocking our president, voting against lower taxes, advocating for illegal aliens, even the criminal type, and giving away our resources, manufacturing skills and spreading a doctrine that America is just too powerful for our own good.

The party is desperately in need of new leadership; the same old sad faces of Pelosi and Schumer keep on frowning at every new victory of the Trump Administration and dragging their feet at every opportunity. Unbeknownst to many Democrats there is a “paradigm shift” occurring in Americas’ trust, we are becoming more skeptical of the mainstream media and of the past administration’s actions because of corruption discovered in both.

Even though the number of registered Democrats hasn’t decreased much, the DNC is still in business and Democrats are obsessed with reversing the 2016 election results and with negating all of Trumps’ initiatives. The public is focusing more on what is being accomplished by a president who can best be described as the “Energy Bunny” and an administration that is putting America first.

Instead of a president who spreads charismatic platitudes and made morning talk show hosts giddy, we have a man who is a realist and a pragmatist who will tackle anything that needs fixing including the environment, the military, borders, jobs, taxes, immigration, and nuclear threats. Dems and the media can deny until the cows come home but the American people are smart and recognize progress when it happens.
