I thought that I would put together a little thought experiment. I'd like to encourage critical thinking, so if you please, avoid trollish comments
about HRC and leftists in general. I also want to qualify that I do not believe allDemocrats/Liberals think alike and as such many already
reflect what I'm articulating below.
Okay, here's the bit:
Imagine that you have been hired by the Democratic Party to revamp the Party's image and strategy to ensure a Presidential win in 2020. What steps
would you take?
For the record, here's mine:
1. Stop shaming people who do not agree with you, shaming does not work. Getting someone to feel bad about themselves because of something they can't
control (being white, being male, being cis-gendered, being christian, etc) is less likely to make that person want to join your cause.
2. Appeal to working class Americans of all types, white males included. Reconnect with unionized labor and once again become champions of people like
truck drivers, coal miners, foundry workers, as the Democratic Party did for so long.
3. Encourage supporters to convey their ideas in a non-confrontational way as opposed to overt things like marches and protests. This goes hand in
hand with number 1, you cannot engage someone in real discussion if you think their beliefs are morally wrong and should not be espoused in the first
4. Inject new blood into the Party, new faces, new names. Specifically, let the old guard retire with dignity and bring in younger leaders who can
articulate their vision for the future and be firebrands that make undecideds excited and what to vote for them (Tim Ryan being an example).
These are some ideas, okay go!
