I am a Democrat and I think that Donald Trump is unfit for office.

However, I also believe he will be re-elected because the Democratic Party is a rudderless ship operated by a leaderless crew that couldn’t find land if they were moored in the harbor.

The party is fragmented. They have no leader and there is no singular message other than Trump is incompetent and should be impeached. This is not a viable political strategy and not only will it not defeat Trump, but it further galvanizes his supporters.

Furthermore, the Democrats are doing nothing to entice fence-straddling voters who backed Trump solely based on stock market performance. Many of them are questioning his trade policies, but they need to be convinced that alternatives exist, not only regarding tariffs, but for Obamacare, taxes, and foreign policy as well.

Currently, the most vocal members of the party are two socialists — Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — whose unique message is that everything should be free along with a living wage thrown in for good measure. So, like the liar they despise, Democrats are making outrageous, undeliverable policy promises in order to defeat him.

The Democrats need a strong leader with a unifying message, and the only potential candidate with those qualifications is Joe Biden, whose impact has already been negated by Pelosi, Schumer, Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez.

Complaining about Donald Trump may be good for television ratings, but it’s doing nothing for our country, other than to guarantee 4 more years of chaos.

The country is broken, but somebody must tell us how to fix it.

I’m all ears.
