Again with the Russian boogeyman. Do these fuckers have anything to back that up?
Only the old soviet boogeyman they keep trying to rile up even as almost no one cares since that stick has over 30 years worth of dry rot in it.
Because she's just like them. Vapid, shallow, corrupt, and out of touch with hardship. Also because they're racists that see only by skin color and genital formation.

I'm curious as to how the Democrats will restructure themselves in the next decade.

I'm a former Democrat who voted for Obama and supported Bernie in 2016 and I even held my nose and reluctantly voted for Hillary later that year because I was legit concerned about Trump being too much of an incompetent loudmouth to effectively govern or that guys like Mike Pence, Jeff Sessions, and Steve Bannon would turn Trump's presidency into "George W. Bush II: Electric Boogaloo" and it turns out Pence was your typical powerless VP and not another "man behind the throne" like Dick Cheney was.

Meanwhile Bannon and Sessions were seen as embarrassments by Trump once he got into office and both guys were shown the door by the time of the 2018 midterms.

However, now we're well into his first term and so far, it's been not that bad.

I still consider myself an independent and I do think Trump and the GOP has some issues of their own, but now the Republicans are not the Bush-era Evangelical boogeymen of my childhood anymore and haven't been for quite some time now.

Trump's successes in the 2016 election and his tenure in office are proof of that.

It's obvious that the Democrats have not learned a thing and are tripling down on the same mistakes that cost them the 2016 election. Unlike 2016, neither the DNC Establishment nor the "woke" SJW/Justice Democrat wing of their base have a strong candidate to back like they did in 2016.

Hillary Clinton may have been an unlikable lich queen, but she had the money and the legacy of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to endear her to the DNC, while Bernie was truly a left-wing outsider candidate in 2016 and he unexpectedly gained a lot of traction in the Democratic primaries before he was ultimately cucked by Hillary.

Now Bernie is one of many "socialist" candidates in the 2020 primaries and has the handicap of being a cis white male, making him nowhere near as viable as he was in 2016.

Also, the DNC is in the same position with the 2020 primaries that the Republicans were in the 2016 primaries.

The 2016 Republican Primary was a verified clown car full of candidates and the ones who were most likely to win the primaries were also the most likely to lose the general election in the most spectacular and embarassing way possible.

Much as how the Democrats are wracked with Trump Derangement Syndrome, there was an undercurrent of Obama Derangement Syndrome among the Right at the time and a lot of recent baggage from the Tea Party and the Religious Right. In retrospect, ODS was not as severe as TDS mainly because it was largely confined to Fox News and conservative talk radio.

The front runners for the Republicans in 2016 were initially Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz, both of whom were widely despised by the Democrats and by moderates and centrists on both sides.

Jeb was a centrist corporate Republican but his name was tainted by the failures of his brother's presidency and Ted Cruz was a Religious Right/Tea Party blowhard that was even secretly disliked by a good chunk of the Republicans.

If anyone could actually lose an election to Hillary Clinton, it would have been those two.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump was seen as a joke when he announced his candidacy and his initial meme following on 4chan was every bit as ironic as Andrew Yang's following is today.

But he was enough of a showman that he gained traction with the base and his ironic meme following became a serious one and as much as the RNC disliked him, they were pragmatic enough to listen to their base and avoid a repeat of Romney's run in 2012 and the divisive disaster that was brought on by the Tea Party in the early 2010's.

Trump gained more votes in the primaries, the RNC gave him the nomination and despite all odds against him up until the very end of the election cycle, he ultimately won the Presidency.

The Democrats are in an almost near identical crisis, but with the added handicap of going up against an incumbent during a time of economic stability.

Much as how the Republicans were weighed down by the Religious Right and the Tea Party, the Democrats have the SJW Left and the so-called "Justice Democrats" posing the exact same problem.

There's too many candidates in the primaries and the ones who are best at winning the primaries (Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, Elizabeth Warren) are the worst picks at winning the election, while the candidates who could actually stand a chance against Trump (Joe Biden, Tulsi Gabbard, possibly Andrew Yang) are the ones who are despised the most by either the DNC, the SJW Left, or both at the same time.

Also, TDS is far more widespread and more people are likely burnt out on it than the previous bout of ODS

I doubt the DNC is at a point where they would run Biden, Yang, or Tulsi even if any of them did gain enough votes and support in the primaries.

With the possible exception of Biden, those candidates would likely get rejected and we'd still get someone like Harris or Warren on the ticket and that would guarantee a second term for Trump barring a really nasty October Surprise such as a major economic recession or World War III.

But it is still too early to tell at this point, and maybe the DNC will surprise us and back someone like Tulsi or Yang while Kamala Harris becomes the Democratic Party's very own Ted Cruz.

Highly unlikely at this point in time, but I guess you never know. Freakish things do happen...

My best guess is that a Trump victory in 2020 will be a wake-up call for the Democrats similar to how Walter Mondale's humiliating defeat in 1984 led to the more neoliberal corporate Democrat approach of Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Barack Obama (albeit to a somewhat lesser extent) or how Romney's loss in 2012 and the divisive lunacy of the Tea Party in 2010-2014 ultimately torpedoed the last vestiges of the Religious Right (at least on a national level) and helped lead to the Republican Party's current populist approach under Trump.

Well there's a hashtag trend I've never seen before. It's a good place to go salt-farming, too. There's a fuckload of TDS rolling around in here.
...Imagine you fuck up and become so badly out of touch that you drive your own side to the other guy.

Bravo DNC, Brafuckingvo!

Seriously, the best way to counter a hashtag meme is to flood it with mockery that nonetheless makes a succinct point. That they're screaming FAKE MOVEMENT only says they have nothing but bitterness, and no real points. Hell, all of their current campaign hot topics are just retreads of ideas the American people have been overtly rejecting for decades, if not repackaged failures that were already discredited in other nations.

Sure, they used to be able to skate along on this when they controlled the flow of information via the media and could paint anyone who disagreed with their "common sense moderate policies" as a bigoted racistsexisthomophobic religious nutbar, hot-glue Fred Phelps's face on them, and say that they're holding us back from The Future (so don't be like them)...but at this point, the wheels have come off the skates.

All I know is the transition will be strange considering how invested people are in SJW stuff and TDS. It's less likely going to be dropped like a rock rather than morph into something more palatable. It'd be one of those things where change happens yet everyone pretends it hasn't.

I was a registered Democrat before the 2016 elections.
would be interested to read what exactly the old lady said to you that affected you so much (you said you realized you'd been lied to, but didn't really elaborate). Neither party has, from my view, done a damn thing to deserve my loyalty, maybe the Pubs actually have and I've been misled?
