    Sorry, all talk no substance. In the meantime the Nazi party of Trump is taking over, piece by piece. He's placing "loyalists' throughout the government in order to get full control over everything. In the meantime the Dem's are "divided" and don't have real "weapons" to defend themselves. With the Mueller debacle they are pulling on the short end of the stick, which is shown every day. Instead of battling Barr, they should "subpoena" Mueller instead, but no one has that idea. So I guarantee they will get nothing in the end but blacked out pages. The same with Trump's tax returns; all kinds of Trump supporters working in the IRS as well Trump's lawyers will do everything to stop this.

    The Dem's have not yet realized that they are way too late in the game; the damage is already done all over the place and even the world. That is what you get if you give an "leader" way too much power without solid laws.

    Like they say in Dutch: "Het is vechten tegen de bierkaai". (Which is like fighting against an bunch of "beer" drinking bully's )

    Dutch -- No it is not all talk and no substance. The results of the 2018 election show what can be accomplished with a determined and organized group of candidates. However, we need to be smarter, and right now Democrats are in the midst of a "internal debate" on what the party should look like for 2020 to beat Trump. That discussion will play out in the 12 Democratic debates starting in June, and hopefully by convention time in July 2020, we will have a consensus candidate for president and several strong candidates for Congressional, state and local offices.

    It really depends on Bernie Sanders if the party is going to unite. If he persists in carrying on his "people's revolution" right up to and past the convention as he did in 2016, then I believe Trump has a good chance of winning in 2020.

    It already shows right now, as was stated today that the GOP does not want the Mueller report released. Let alone Trump's tax returns; they will fight this also all the way. The Dem's should immediately "subpoena" Mueller and get the full unedited report, if not they will loose big time. THIS HAS HUGE CONSEQUENCES for the 2020 election. People will only vote Democratic if Trump can be "nailed" on something substantial in the report.

    I happen to see that Sanders sticks to his radical thinking and is even invited at FOX news. He's also a bit "funky" about his tax returns. Looking at the "picture" then I think neither Bernie nor Biden make the "grade" Too much hanky panky "either way". Thus where is the "one" who can "motivate" and "lead" the party?

    So I think the only positive thing for the Dem's is that Trump falls flat on his face before the elections, which can then draw the Dem's hopefully over the finish line.

    Dutch, Bernie energized the country and made "Socialist" safe to say. He more than anybody realizes the short comings of our system and how to fix it. He alone is responsible for the attention to healthcare for all and free college education and the dangers of the stock market. Why don't you think he should lead the party and be the candidate for 2020.

    "Thus where is the "one" who can "motivate" and "lead" the party?"

    Bernie is responsible for all of the candidates picking progressive platforms.

    Trump needs a punch in the sack. Then he needs to go to jail.

    I would argue that Trump thrives in conflict and the more he is attacked the more he feeds off it. I think he intentionally provokes people because he NEEDS the conflict to function. Much like a chronic alcoholic needs to be always drunk. If there is no one attacking him, he has nothing to feed off.

    Yes I agree, but why are the Dem's acting if nothing is wrong? they just go on with their old ways and "systems" while the mafia bully in the W.H. does not give a shit about the "system". Yes that got Hitler into power.

    Appearances are that some Democrats are not to upset with Trump's tax cuts. And that would be the hierarchy that are both in the income bracket that benefited from Trumps tax cuts and also dictate Democratic policy. If the DNC supported the working poor they would be doing everything possible to promote Bernie. Instead they seem to be afraid of the taxes Bernie is talking about. This is exactly why I have said the Party Deserted the poor 60 years ago. The proof is look at how the constituents of each party have benefited. Working poor can't come up with $400 dollars in an emergency and the GOP own all the wealth. What else is the result of driving the working class into poverty? Kids graduating from college with worthless degrees owing a fortune in student loans. Who was looking out for college kids? Who is the 1.5 trillion dollars in student loans owed to? Who allowed some life giving drugs go up 5000 percent while convenient store clerks get arrested because gasoline prices went up during a hurricane? In a matter of life or death pharma makes billions while convenient store clerks get arrested. Something is not right people!!! Afraid to embarass the top 1% while 40% can't afford to live????

    The sadness is with a progressive tax system would create prosperity and the top 1% would be benefiting because they own all the means of production. Are the top 1% that cruel that they deny prosperity because they won't let their money work? While they tell poor people to get a job and take care of themselves they hoard all the money into monstrous foundations instead of owning monstrous businesses. Creating living wage jobs and prosperity will lead to peace and order.

    BTW the Trump University Law Suit sets a precedence for all the kids with worthless degrees to sue and get their money back.
