    That's over 1000 seats lost since 2010.

    You may want to check up on that.

    As of two (2) weeks ago today, "they" were saying it was the Republican Party that was dying.

    This stuff runs in cycles.

    Whichever party gets in power, they usually screw it up, and it normally doesn't take long.

    Everything the Democrats say is a lie.

    All informed Americans know the Republican Party was not dying.

    The Party had historic victories in the last two mid-terms.

    Yes the "D" will survive.

    Clinton is on track to win more than 2 million Trump got in the election

    And he only won by 107,0000 votes in the 3 states that decided the EC.

    Of course they made some mistakes - both parties don't seem all that interested in the working guy much anymore. And hopefully both parties will do more to address their concerns.

    But I swear some of the Democratic leadership freaking out over everything at the moment - seems like real over kill to me.

    They need to worry about fighting Trump tooth and nail on the policy issues they disagree vehemently with him first - and then worry about what they do going forward.

    This will continue to add to the demise of the Democratic Party.

    And, I take it you disagree with Rep. Tim Ryan's assessment of the Democratic Party?

    You did watch the video didn't you?

    The D party is going to go anywhere.

    Again some are blowing things way out of proportion.

    But then again actual facts mean nothing to you so it's worthless to spend much time responding to you.

    The facts I'm looking at is that Rep. Tim Ryan is trying to make some healthy changes in the party and the establishment and the sheeple that support them are not seeing it.

    This will lead to another major defeat for the party.

    You guys don't see it coming, just as you didn't see Trump coming.

    You guys will find yourself supporting a failed antiquated irrelevant party with no representation in this Country.

    What will you do?
