Democrats need more than slogan to reinvent them

Are you ready for “A Better Plan, Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages”? That is apparently the new message for the Democrats. Of course, it sounds like a cheap mixture of a Trump advertisement and a Papa John’s commercial, but I have to give the Dems a break. They aren’t used to actually discussing issues because they generally just oppose the president and call everyone who disagrees with them a racist.

But now the people have figured out that they don’t actually have an argument. So it might be helpful to share some actual ideas as to how they will achieve the better jobs and better wages so the people don’t just think that they are mere talking points.

The other thing the Democrats need to do is to change their name. Thanks to great American Dinesh D’Souza, the people now know that it was the Democrats who owned the slaves, formed the KKK, passed Jim Crow laws and fought civil rights. They claim that they aren’t like that today, but as long as they hold on to that name they have to be tied to it. The name Democrat is symbolic with discrimination and racism. I would think that they would want to change that.

Bottom line, if the Democrats really want a fresh start and reinvent themselves, they need more than a slogan.
