Quo Vadis Democrats. And the Country?

One of the mistakes ( just one) the Clinton campaign made last year was to concentrate on making the point that “I am not him!” Instead of pounding away on what I will do along with my fellow Democrats for you, the voter.

I mean her slogan “Stronger Together” correctly reflects an important fact but it could not compete with his “Make American Great Again” into which anyone could pour his/her concept (even the vilest of concepts) of what would actuallly make America Great Again.

So now the Democrats are faced with how to position themseleves for the next one or two or several elections. If they continue the idea that all they have to do is say “We are not ‘him’ or ‘them’, ” they will continue to come up short.

No, the Democrats must stand for something that will help “me,” not just promise to get rid of ‘him’ or’them.’

And what is that “something” to stand for the Democratic party seems to be headed toward?

Many write about a  Democratic party civil war between the Bernie Sanders leftists and the esblishment centrists. But a smart man I know named Doug Sosnik, who was an advisor to President Bill Clinton, says in a Washington Post  op-ed column that the war is over, that the party’s future position is already determined.

The  Headline reads: “What Democratic Civil War? The Left Already Won.” And here is the link.


Sosnik invites us to  look at the numbers in a Pew Values Survey released last month . It found: “that the percentage of Democrats and Democratic leaners who express liberal or mostly liberal political values exploded from 30 percent in 1994 to 73 percent in 2017.

The research found that 84 percent of Democrats think immigration is a good thing for our country — a 52-point increase since 1994. And 64 percent now believe that racial discrimination is the main reason that many black people cannot get ahead — a 36-point increase in the past seven years. A June 2017 Pew poll found that a majority of Democrats support single-payer health insurance, a 19-point increase in just the past three years.”

And the beat goes on. The future democratic vote appears to be strongly in a leftist direction. But so what, you say, that just may prove that the Democrats will be increasingly out of step with the Country.

Not so. The Country is swinging to the left thanks to the life cycle of age.

The millenium generatiron coming to voting power is according to all the reputable surveys, strongly in the Democratic columne. In the recent November 2017 elections it was not just the suburbs and the non-white voters in general who beat the Republicans, it was a surge of young people. And that tide is just begining. They are liberal and they are Democratic.

The old Republican party (the one in which I grew up) might have competed. But this Trumpified catastrophe which masquerades under the old GOP banner – a collection of Americans who stand against Blacks, Mexicans, Gays, financial aide to the poor, contempt for science, and other mid-evil thoughts and actions while holding tight to their assault weapons – these fearful and hostile Americans are fighting a rear guard action for the past while being overwhelmed by the future.

Eventually, the actuarial tables recording deaths vs. births will get us all but, acording to today’s numbers on political thought, it will get those is the Trumpified Republican party before it gets the surge of  young people who are charting the future of the Democratic party.

Quo Vadis the Democrats?


An thus the Nation?


It’s in the numbers. As a stock market broker might say when the price keeps falling “don’t fight the tape.” Because that’s one sure way to go broke!
