Democrat Congressman Tim Ryan: Democrats are ‘not even a national party at this point’
Canada Free Press ^ | 11/22/16 | Robert Laurie

Party of secularism, socialism, and globalism

For the last 8 years, Democrats have taken great satisfaction in referring to the GOP as a “small, regional, party.” Despite big mid-term wins, Dems believed they’d crushed their opponents once and for all. Obama was popular, people were just going to love ObamaCare, and the country was moving left on social issues. Then Donald Trump happened.

Now, Democrats have a historically low number of office holders. As Ohio Representative Tim Ryan says in the clip below, Dems are “at the smallest number of Democratic members of our caucus since 1929,” and currently boast “the smallest number of democratic office holders in the state and federal level since just after the civil war.”

No, but the Democrats, AKA members of the Democratic Socialist Party, ARE the enemy within.

Still too many Democrat Communist party members.

Smash them, no path to ever regain a majority or eff up the country ever again.

Job one is to keep the commies out of power by all means necessary.

This “not going to go after SHRILLARY” is just an example of what it takes to win; keep these communist bastards guessing.

Obama will look foolish if he pardons the KLINTOON KRIME FAMILY now.

Once the blue lipped mooselimb is gone, LOOK OUT SHRILLARY!!!!

LOL

Obama happened first, then Trump happened. Obama was personally popular, but also gutted the democrat party before Trump came along.

The democratic party isn’t going to change, it’s going to wait.

Ryan still doubling down though. Just today told Trump not to repeal Obamacare or defund PP.

You are correct. They think they can wait for all the angry white baby boomers to die, then usher in a socialist paradise.

The Democrat Party needs to rebrand themselves as the “Socialist Democrat Party USA”. Drop the name “Progressive”, since everyone can see through the charade. The Bernie Sanders Branch would revel in this, and the remaining branches really identify with Socialist goals.

The “Masks of Communism” are starting to slip, and they feel safe to show their real face to the American people. So why not go all the way, and rename themselves.

It’s a two party country. They just have to wait for us to screw up. like by starting and losing another war for example.

And the Democrats will likely decide they need to double-down on identity politics and progressive/socialist economic policies in order to regain their majority.

I do see some danger here: an energized base of Democrats could achieve historic gains in the House in 2018. But, I think they will have trouble holding on to their current position in the Senate, with so many Democrats up for re-election in red states.

If Trump sticks to his economic and immigration agenda, it will mute a lot of the opposition -- as long as the economy doesn't tank in the next two years. A couple of years of solid growth in the GDP will do wonders.

If Trump voters don't get complacent and make the effort to vote in 2018, it will hold the Democrats gain to a minimum. What will be interesting: if the leftist media goes "full retard" against Trump, will it energize conservatives to react as they did in 2016?

I think George Bush really screwed up in Iraq and that had a lot to do with the crushing defeats we suffered in 2006 and 2008. You can blame a lot of the 2008 results on the economy as well but our spanking really started in 2006 and that was all Iraq.

They are a party confined within the city limits of large cities. New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago trying to rule over the rest of the country.

Auggest you review history. The country was in a stable condition and working towards more stability. Lost! No!

It was lost when the idiot became President and decided to prove he was relevant by turning the country over to ISIS.

I suggest you review the election results of 2006 and 2008.
