When Donald Trump tweets, my phone notifies me, so I have read nearly everything he’s posted as President of the United States. Many of his tweets are memorable because they are outrageous, childish rants that we would not tolerate from a 12-year-old, yet somehow we have become inured to them.
Twitter has become Trump’s select method for communicating to the world, and like or hate him, we know who Trump is and where he stands.
I wish I could say the say same for my fellow Democrats. I have been searching for a unifying message from the Democratic Party, but as the midterms approach I am being bombarded with emails from the DNC, OFA, Tom Steyer, Eric Holder, and Xochitl Hinojosa, the communications director for the Democratic Party.
They all ask that I vote in the midterms and contribute money, because Donald Trump is a terrible president and an embarrassment to our country, and I agree. However, none of them explain what the Democrats are going to do, should we take one or both houses, or worse — lose.
If Democrats really want to take the higher ground, then they must give us more than moral lip service and present voters with real national policies that are more than “we’re going to stop Donald Trump because he’s despicable.”
I’m not a behind the desk pundit who lords over my viewers but never actually interacts with them. I talk to people on the street, the subway, on the bus, and in the post office and I assure you, there are plenty of friendly, articulate, and frustrated people out there who enjoy expressing their opinions. When they don’t see their concerns addressed by Democratic politicians, they don’t vote.
Many voters are wary of big government because they believe it has become too bloated to run effectively. Again, stand in line at the post office and talk to people.
Don’t preach to the choir. Democratic voters know that Donald Trump is a charlatan. We have a massive deficit, a crumbling infrastructure, and a healthcare system that requires massive reform.
What’s the plan?
