Why the Democratic Party has no future

Rebel Staff
 

The Democratic Party is in much more peril than liberal political commenters and the mainstream media recognizes. I’d argue that the current Democratic Party has little future in politics unless they dramatically change.

We all know that Donald Trump won the election. He’s not just choosing a cabinet and heads of various agencies. He’s also nominated a conservative judge to replace Scalia on the Supreme Court. Three judges are likely to die or retire over the next eight years, and Trump will replace them with other conservative appointments.

The Republicans also control both the Senate and House of Representatives.

There are 32 states out of 50 with Republican controlled legislative offices. 

If you crunch the numbers, Republicans also make up the majority of mayors, too, over 60 per cent, and it’s safe to bet that most sheriffs and law enforcement personnel swing heavily towards either conservatism or, at least, being a moderate — that is, not progressive or liberal.

Under Obama’s administration, over one thousand Democratic seats were lost: congressional and state legislative seats, governorships and mayoralties.

The next string of elections in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and so on will most likely continue the Republican trend.

The Democrats are history and the future of their party remaining influential is bleak. If they don’t make major changes — and I mean changes that are actually popular with the American electorate, they’ll keep on losing.

Jack, the prophet, has spoken.
However there was no pants shifting happened when Obama was elected, no rioting, no beating of his supporters. So even if a Democrat wins again I doubt the response will be any different.

Oh, and Jack? You still haven’t told us what crime Trump will be impeached on. Not liking his hair or his bombast are not crimes.

" I can’t wait…" LOL

Given Jack Carter’s/ Jimmy Reece’s/ Michael Mann’s record in the last election, this pretty much means a Trump landslide in 2020.

I so look forward to the shitting of pants here when Trump is either impeached or loses in 2020 – one or the other will happen. Everyone loves a comeback and the Democrats will have their comeback.

Think of this like Rocky III – Rocky lost to Clubber Lang, but Rocky trains even harder and beats Clubber Lang. It will be glorious, especially when Trump won’t be able to rely on the baggage of Hillary or help from Wikileaks..

You also better pray that O’Leary becomes your leader, because otherwise you are fucked in the next election. Especially if it’s Kellie Leitch.

Any victory you think you have achieved will be temporary.

Another good one, Jay! Good riddance, Democrats and Liberals.

You nailed it Drew… “Intelligent people learn from their mistakes”…

And this folks is the first of 3 pillars of leftiedom:
1. They never learn from their mistakes
2. They never learn from other people’s mistakes and
3. They refuse to exercise discernment.

It all leads back to ‘liberal arrogance’. Democrats, like our own Liberals, believe that they have a God given right to rule. Further, they believe that anyone who does not understand their liberal agenda is just not bright enough to do so and must be lead to the liberal gates of heaven. No matter how great the defeat, liberals will never question the veracity of their agenda. They will never entertain the possibility that their agenda, policies and ideology are faulted but, rather, blame the ‘messaging’ or the simpletons who live in the backward hinterland.

Expecting the democrats to change their party is like expecting the proverbial leopard to change it’s spots. Democrats are doomed. Our Liberals will be soon to follow.

Jack Carter said to Al Peterson, "I am surprised you even have to question a possible Trump impeachment. "

Oh yes, Al, how can you even question the possibility that Trump will be impeached?

Al, don’t you know that when the left does not like a legally elected president they can get rid of them however they want?

Al, don’t you know that even though Trump was elected by a wide margin and has done nothing illegal whatsoever, the left can and will impeach Trump for whatever charges they like?

Like, come on Al, Don’t you know that the left is omnipotent and of course omniscient and can do whatever they want, the law and constitution be damned? The law and the constitution are just required for those evil Republicans.

Surely, Al, you must know this deep down in your heart. Just give yourself over to the leftie gods. They know best.

The National Democrat Party are just using the same playbook that the Wisconsin Democrats used in their attempt to overthrow Governor Scott Walker. In the end, the adults in the room got totally fed up with working every day and paying taxes and seeing no results.
With the Cabinet Trump has chosen, Americans are going to see results. Even the media as powerful as it is cannot hide the results people see in their pocketbooks.

For those who say millions are against Trump…here are the facts.

The millions you SEE AND HEAR are in your face on TV. They have a voice and a microphone given them by the leftist media, film and George Soros’ 34 billion $ paid protest and violence crowds. Public display is their job, not their ‘desire’.

The millions you DON’T see and hear have only ONE voice…the ballot box…they voted for Trump and you will not hear from them again until the next election…it is their enforced silence that drives them to despise and defeat the noisemakers in the media…their hatred for what you SEE AND HEAR everyday is only evident on election day, and the way things are going, the left is on the verge of losing the last of their power by 2020…and I am so glad, for they are not real, but an actors betraying the real people.

Trump has hijacked the Democratic party platform and now their cupboard is bare. Their reason to be is gone forever. In a way he also did the same to Republicans, but that is a good thing, for he gave them BACKBONE that they had lost. He won by taking the best of both worlds and calling it Republican.

Also, in fact, there is no such thing as a ‘Democrat’ judge…these are, by definition, dependent on polls and politics, not the law,and that is why they are called partisan, not ‘blind’ to emotion and polls. They are therefore not judges of the law, but opinion makers. When will people realize that these judges have hijacked the law for a political party and are dangerous to justice. Inasmuch as a judge is solely Republican he is also not blind to opinion, but is still more likely to be more dependent on the rules than on opinion because Conservatives are by nature also this way. It is the Democrat judges that are willing to go with the wind wherever the public mood takes them…Conservative judges by definition are more staid, less moveable to the public mood and are, therefore, the safer choice when all around are losing their heads. Better to Conserve the status quo than throw it all away for the latest fad idea.

Jack Carter you sound like the people who said he would not win, well guess what happened, he not only won , but the left lost everything.

A few have commented here negatively about Trump. Like he’s not going to go the distance, I have to laugh, they’re are making the same mistakes as the polls and mainstream media did. It’s as if they all work for CNN or CBC, they have all been of the same narrative, WRONG. Don’t know how they can come to work everyday and be wrong, don’t know what idiot is paying all of them or how they even manage to be employed. I thought the only person that could be wrong everyday and still get paid was the weather reporter. I guess if your wrong all the time it continues to give you something to shoot for or you’re just hoping to be right one day like winning a lottery.
Great report though Jay, really like the conclusion. I do agree though they need to change drastically, I don’t see that happening anytime soon. The Democratic Party have in the past done their best to hold America back. The Democrats voted against freeing the slaves and granting citizenship, they also voted against giving women the right to vote. Yet they seem to be favored by the black community and feminists. Which I guess proves that they either haven’t done some necessary research or they just don’t care and don’t want to burst their little bubble with something like the truth.

Elisabeth Warren? Libtards are really reaching now. That screechy women could make glass break.
commented 2017-02-06 23:03:34 -0500
Brexit, Trump, The Senate, The House, Fillon in France….

you still haven’t given a crime that Trump would be impeached for. A pack of lefties wanting him impeached is not a reason for impeachment.

Trump wouldn’t have run except for the Hillary baggage. You’re not making the alternative sound very attractive.

So by saying the Elizabeth Warren would “literally kick his ass”, that she would be impeached for assault?
commented 2017-02-06 22:25:36 -0500
Al,

Not cherry picking at all.

I am surprised you even have to question a possible Trump impeachment. It’s not so much if, but when as he already getting close to a reason for impeachment. Even people who predicted he would win, are now saying he won’t make the full 4 years. I guess time will tell to see if there are right a second time.

Trump would have lost if he didn’t have the Hillary baggage. If he was running against Elizabeth Warren for the first woman President, she would literally kick his ass and make him look like the idiot that he is regarding politics.

As of late? One election? We already had 8 years of Obama, while you conservatives were constantly bleeding from your vaginas. Not to mention Justin Trudeau ending the political career of Stephen Harper, which no one on The Rebel saw coming, so ya – liberals have been doing pretty damn good when it comes to predictions.

Trump will lose in 2020. Only Kevin O’Leary can beat Trudeau, so if O’Leary isn’t leader – The Conservative Party is fucked in the next election. Thy will be done.

I would like to believe that the recent spate of unhinged leftist rioting and violence is the loudest death rattle the world has ever heard – an open declaration to any sane observer that the left have no cogent arguments left and lost all political legitimacy – they fight a fantasy war with fantasy solutions. But if they keep shutting down free speech and punching anyone they deem a “Nazi,” they risk facing a violent backlash that unmasks them as the extremist sissies they truly are and sends Their political organizations into the junk ideas landfill .
commented 2017-02-06 20:00:50 -0500
Jack, I will give you this; Trump and his team are only running on 3 cylinders out of 8. Once the Dems let him have his group, things will drastically change. I hope he has it left in him to go 8 years.
commented 2017-02-06 19:32:37 -0500
Jack, nice cherry picking there.

You give no reason why Trump would be impeached. He would have to do something like dear old Billy did. You can’t impeach a president simply because you don’t like him.

Trump didn’t “need” Hillary’s baggage. The baggage was there which is what motivated him to run.

You lefties need to be a little more circumspect in your prophecies. As of late they have a terrible track record. Don’t you guys ever get tired of being wrong?
commented 2017-02-06 19:28:42 -0500
Jack. I think maybe you’re confusing the BIG NOISE of a few as being a lot! Conservatives don’t riot, but they DO vote! And leave it to the Lefty’s to abuse the legal process to get their way b/c they can’t stand to lose. Well, we’ll see. The fight will be them abusing the legal system, and Trump learning how to tame or circumvent them. Are you sure it’s conservatives that are already over confident? Cause it sounds to me like it’s YOU that is over confident no? Well, never mind, like Jay said, I’m not telling you what to do, you just keep rioting in the streets!!
commented 2017-02-06 18:59:41 -0500
Jay,

Nice hyperbole there.

The reality is that Trump will be lucky to even make it through 4 years without the high probability that he will be impeached. Millions of Americans already can’t wait to vote him out and millions more are slowly realizing that they have been conned.

America loves a comeback and 2020 isn’t that far away. Put someone like Cory Booker in there and without the Hillary baggage that Trump desperately needed and used to his advantage – Trump will again lose the popular vote AND the electoral vote this time. Trump is pretty much the most hated person in America right now. That won’t change.

You know what I would love to see – a debate between Elizabeth Warren vs Trump. She would eat Trump’s lunch for him like she has done against Trump’s appointments and decimate him in an election.

The Democrat comeback is coming. Republicans/conservatives are already getting a little too comfortable, overconfident and complacent. They soon will be wondering – how the hell did we fuck this up.
