Note To Democrats: Make a Sweet Change From Sour Lemons

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.
 -Eckhart Tolle

Good Day World!

We may have situations in our lives when we feel like we lost something, when in fact it turned out that we gained something.

The Democratic Party needs to understand that. There's a lot of different factors that contributed to Donald Trump's stunning victory.

One of the biggest reasons was the party was not united. Bernie Sanders supporters couldn't stomach Hillary Clinton and the party itself had lost touch with the average American.

Losing to Trump was the biggest low point in Democratic Party history. Ivory tower liberals got bitch-slapped!

The good news? There's only one way to go from here...up!

Fact: The Clinton's no longer own the Democratic Party. It's time for a makeover.

The future of the party lies with liberal politicians like California senator-elect Kamala Harris, and Rep.Keith Ellison (D-MN). 
Note: Ellison is currently the top candidate for new DNC chair.

Everyone doesn't think Ellison is the best pick however:

Staunch liberal Dershowitz: "I'll leave the party if Ellison becomes DNC chair."

The DNC is going to have to change their tactics with minorities. It's time to go grass roots again and see what the majority of Americans are facing on a daily basis.

Liberal ideology is fine, but for the sake of reality and getting a plurality the party needs to listen closer to what people are saying.

Sounds simple, but it isn't. Reconnecting with a base from one century to the next has been fraught with challenges, as Democrats discovered this election.

If the effort is made, and the right people get into positions to create positive change, the American people can still be the eventual winners!

Time for me to walk on down the road...
