Yeah, I think they believe using a Star Wars reference: "The Resistance" that they will appeal to gen x- millenial crowd...they can all feel super heroic.
Anyone that thinks the DNC or GOP rank and file are the "Resistance" is an idiot.
BTW: Since the Kochs have a long history of wanting the smallest government possible, using your own logic, doesn't this mean that the GOP are no longer the party that wants a limited government? I guess a large portion of Republican and Libertarian voters are now going to be voting D.
All this really says is that the DNC (despite claims made by ATS members) is going farther Right.
These people aren't real liberals anymore.

They've been willing to tackle all three, military, SS, and Medicare. Just because the left refuses to compromise doesn't make the tea party a failure. They want to cut a bunch of the other abc's as well, because they're not constitutional.
No one expects them to accomplish all of it on their first showing, but they need to show a good faith effort. Which, imo, they've done. They've tried to defund and repeal Obamacare, which is a huge reason they, along with other republicans were sent to Washington.
I don't get the obsession leftists have with the Koch brothers. It's like they believe if they say those words, they automatically win. News flash: you don't.
The Trump campaign’s digital director credits Facebook in helping to fuel the president’s surprising win last November.
In an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday, Brad Parscale said Facebook “was the method” for President Donald Trump’s stunning rise to the White House. Parscale, who spearheaded the small Trump campaign team’s digital and fundraising efforts, contended that the team took advantage of Facebook in a way Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign did not.
“Facebook now lets you get to places and places possibly that you would never go with TV ads,” Parscale, web director at San Antonio-based marketing and design firm Giles Parscale, told CBS. “Now, I can find, you know, 15 people in the Florida Panhandle that I would never buy a TV commercial for. And, we took opportunities that I think the other side didn’t.”
He pointed to the Trump campaign having Facebook employees “embedded inside our offices” to explain how to use the platform to target voters. Parscale wanted Trump-supporting Facebook employees to offer guidance, and the company already had divisions “set up” by political affiliation, he said.
Parscale said he “heard” Clinton’s campaign got the same offer but did not accept it.
