Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World
Democrats received a shellacking in the race for the White House. And that was mainly because they had a flawed candidate who ran a flawed campaign.
Hillary Clinton had no message, no voice, no personality, no charisma. She tried to be all things to all people — depending on the day and the place. And in the end she was nothing.
How much heavy lifting can surrogates do when the candidate herself lacks all oomph?
The Dems were against a formidable candidate — a fighter to the core. And they never took him seriously.
They seemed to have fallen for the nonsense the media were parading about Donald Trump being nothing but a clown, an entertainer and a fad.
Clinton called Trump voters a Basket of Deplorables. How do you put something like that behind you?
And she failed to win over the supporters of Bernie Sanders.
And now the Democratic National Committee (DNC) keeps sending me e-mails asking me if I was ready to fight back!
Fight whom? And for what? Who are we fighting and what is the fight about?
I don’t think they have a clue.
Don’t get me wrong. I am a born fighter. And I never run from a fight. But the future is not about fighting. It is about coming to terms with reality.
What is really needed is for everyone — Democrats as well as Republicans — to define:
a) Their true identity — who they really are.
b) Their true mission in life and in politics — what they really stand for.
c) Their true goals — what they really want to achieve for themselves and for this great country.
Once this is done, they need to then devise an effective strategy to achieve those goals.
Right now, at least the Democrats are totally rudderless and lost.
And Trump is waist deep in the swamp that he set out to drain.
Maybe one way out for the Dems is to put Sanders in charge of party policy and direction. Maybe he can still help them reemerge from the wilderness and regain relevance.
The fact is the electorate has changed. People are no longer as dumb and docile as they used to be.
Nor are the traditional media as mighty and dominant.
God Almighty’s Grace seems to have manifested itself in part in the form of Social Media and set the American People free. The People now appear more capable of thinking for themselves than at any point in the past.
So, the only way forward for the Dems is to level with the American People and do some serious soul searching.
Their mission should be to serve the People. Not fight Trump. At least not right now.
