A 2018 Political Prediction From LPR

February 19, 2017 --

Democrats are politically incapable of coming to grips with the lessons of 2016.

(And certainly unwilling to accept the teaching of Richared M. Nixon on the self-destructive power of hate.)

Here and there, as indicated by Frank Bruni’s New York Times column, February 12, 2017, some Democrats realize that a presidential campaign based, in the main, on hating the opponent does not form a political message to rally people around. But only some.

And even they, the Bruni column implies, do not acknowledge that the Democrats not only demonized their opponent, but condescendingly dismissed the plain people as “deplorables,” as well.

Yes, the media will continue to denounce Trump and Trumpers, and play up any indication of anti-Trump protest as a looming Maidan coup – and, in 2018, the plain people of the nation will elect a Senate with 63 Republican members or more, and GOP numbers in the House of Representatives will edge toward 300.

(And by 2020, the Democrats will decline, further, to be the U.S. version of Britain’s Liberal Party.)
