The Democrat Party lost the House in 2010, Senate in the 2014 mid-term elections and President Obama's effectiveness ratings have continued to decline. In 2016 they lost the Presidency to Republican Donald Trump. Democrat candidate, Hillary Clinton, failed to retain the White House with a similar coalition of young people, women and minority voters that swept Barack Obama into office in 2008. Yet the coalition did not show up in the force needed. The Democrat candidate won the popular vote in reliably blue states (California, Washington, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts, etc) as a result of overwhelming majorities in major coastal metropolitan areas like LA, SF, Seattle, NYC, Boston, Washington DC). They failed miserably in the heartland and in other blue states in the rust belt (Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin) and lost a total of 30 states giving a landslide electoral college victory to the Republican candidate. The Democrats have lost over 1,000 seats at the national, state and local levels nationwide in the past 7 years. How will Democrats react and rebuild for 2018 & 2020?

Abolition and the American Founding

from The Gray Area:

The Wall Street Journal article below is a very balanced piece on our current condition, slavery, and the American Founding. It shows the cultural divide that exist ed then and now. Some, like Brian Stelter on CNN, want us to believe there is no cultural divide, no historic divide, no divide on the righteousness of our founding. But, there is, in reality, a huge cultural divide and it has existed for decades, building in power to this moment.

This divide and cultural disagreement was not created by Donald Trump. His election was the first statement of wait leftists, you are going too far. That shocked the left. Up to that point they had run opposition free and set the debate language, in a misleading and in some cases inaccurate manner, for the rest of the country to accept & submit.

This article by Jason Willick, presents an accurate, detailed and balanced view of our condition, what's at stake and why the left is winning.

from The Wall Street Journal,

Today’s leftists denounce the Declaration and Constitution as pro-slavery. It’s not a new argument, political scientist C. Bradley Thompson says.
