    I could not agree more. The Democratic party just does not get it. The fact is the party is a corrupt corporate controlled party and that is a big reason why so many do not vote for them. I mean look at the debacle that was the whole campaign for them last time out yet despite that the only thing the Democrats really have going for them is they are not Trump. Once again vote for the lesser evil is essentially their manifesto.
    Reality IMHO economically is the Republicans represent and serve the top 1% the Democrats maybe the top 20%. Sure they are not as bad as the Republicans but they still do not care about nor do they work for the best interests of the vast majority of Americans on a consistent basis hence why voter participation is so pathetic in the US.

    Correct. Its the corporate part that likes to keep Pelosi and Schumer as leaders. After the last election they needed to look inward and figure out why they lost. The way the population is going they should be winning every election. But they are simply not smart enough to figure it out.

    And as a result the DNC is now rudderless.

    The DNC reportedly has less than $1M in the war chest going into the midterm cycle. And Republicans out-raised them 2:1 last year. Considering the Republican's billionaire base is flush with money now that they've been handed tax cuts, it might not be about winning races on issues but rather who can outspend the other by a factor of 2:1 or greater.
