Are the Democrats being aggressive enough to sweep to victory in the 2018 elections. [View all]

I feel the Democratic Party can do a lot more in standing up to
the Republicans . The Democrats seem to want to play it safe and not rock the boat.
as if these are normal times in our country’s history.
Hoping that the Republicans would make all the mistakes and fumble the ball.
But without offering a real alternatives, real solutions we fall short.Why offer ‘’A better deal”. Why not offer the
“BEST DEAL”. The American people deserve the best deal possible, not just a better deal!
I know I am being hard but these are serious Times and challenges that threaten our country's future and our way of life and the rule of law.
Some Democrats may think that they can somehow sway Trump supporters and the fox news
watchers away from trump.
Some believe that openly suggesting holding the president accountable
not, to mention impeachment, will doom their chances to win. Some even said if they push
harder in that direction it might split the country further. Well “breaking news” the country
is already split.
What we have, friends, is the most corrupt administration in American history.
The FBI and DOJ are attacked daily by presidential tweets.
The president himself has openly defied the constitution and the rule of law ,even thinks of
himself as above both. He is a constant Liar. He has divided the country. Split our Allies and
Nato. He is launching a global trade war using the carrot and stick against our neighbors and
allies and only the carrots toward our adversaries like Russia and China for example.
Our Allies are like family stood with us through thick and thin we should not threaten them, instead
We should find consensus that would benefit both sides .
Trump gave tax breaks to the richest 1% on the expenses of the middle and lower income
families. Millions are going off health insurance. Millions have to work low paying jobs some
have to work two jobs to make ends meet. I am one of them.
It is good for the Democratic Party to find good suitable candidates particularly women
to run for office and should continue and expand the grass root movement in finding and
registering voters. But why not following several roads and several strategies at the same time.
So the slogan “when they go low we go high” sounds great. At the same time we also should
follow another strategy that when they go low and lie we kick their butts.
Now the democrats can beat this corrupt reality TV administration along with the GOP party
that has abdicated its responsibility to be the checks and balance to the executive branch .
Time for actions. Time to be bold, loud, determined and courageous .
Our forefathers as well the coming generations expect that from us.
Our time is now to save the future.
I know some of you will not like what I am saying.
But my love of this great country and its entire people dictates it.
