It's all in the messaging...

(baby Noodle archives)

The Big Blue Wave is coming in 2018!

You hear it all the time now.

The democrats are unstoppable. 

They're going to take the house back and heck, maybe even the senate.

Don't hold your breath!

Unfortunately most democrats haven't gotten their act together.

And you can't win if you're not in the race.

I know what Donald Trumps message is, so does everyone else on the planet.

I don't agree with it but it's been driven like a stake into my brain for the last two years.

It doesn't matter if the message makes sense or is even possible all it takes to convince those who will listen is;


Now tell me the democrats message...

go ahead, I dare you.

Don't worry, it's not your fault that you don't know what it is because no one has told you.

Yes, the democrats have won some amazing victories.

Look at Virginia and Alabama.

And today, at  one of the rallies for keeping children together with their parents who are detained at the border, Senator Kamala Harris gave a speech that should be embraced by the party as their mantra.

But there is still a major difference between the democrats and the republicans that is one of the democrats biggest problems right now.

They continue to be realistic and try to play by the rules  in this ridiculous new political environment.

Listen up dems! At some point you just have to stop banging your head against the wall.

I remember how much I respected Michelle Obama when she said "when they go low, we go high".

Here's the problem…

republicans have gone SO low for so long that no one even recognizes the moral high ground anymore.

And people don't buy what they don't recognize.

They hear the loudest voice in the room and follow that message because they have heard it over and over and over until it sounds familiar.

Look, I know that reasonable people want to believe that being honest and ethical and moral is what you should do.

It's what we all should do.

It's what we would all like to believe is who we still are, to quote Kamala Harris; "we are better than this"!

But the fact remains that we live in a different world now and a lot of the old rules just don't apply any longer.

And that big blue wave may end up being just a tiny ripple if we are not careful because right now most democrats are not talking to the people, they're talking politics, and that just doesn't work anymore.

So, come on democrats! Get in there and mix it up, because...

"we are better that this".

Have a wonderful weekend...

*Excerpt from the  movie The American President;

America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship. You gotta want it bad, ‘cause it’s gonna put up a fight. It’s gonna say, You want free speech? Let’s see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who’s standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. 

You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country can’t just be a flag; the symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. Then, you can stand up and sing about the “land of the free.”
