Can The Democrats Shape Up In Time For 2018 Midterms? – Politics Video



We may be 17 months away from the 2018 midterms, but the Democratic Party doesn’t seem to be making any progress since their 2016 election losses. There is still time for the Democrats to get it together, but only if they start accepting the reality that is all around them. People want help, not talking points. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this topic.

  1. yea let's just ignore the fact that hitlery and the DNCunts rigged the primary and robbed the country. and then we'll just cross our fingers and hope they don't do it next time. that'll work out well

  2. I would wager that Clinton trying to stay in the spotlight after her colossal loss in 2016 is partly the reason for people constantly bringing her up.

    And while on the matter of investigations, she should have been charged when Comey said she broke the law in his own words back in July of last year.

    Though, you're correct, the past is the past and we should focus on rebuilding, while knocking away any obstacles that may stop the progressive movement.

  8. WTF; The 1% control the government, all the major media news outlets and play the people like a fiddle keeping us divided.
    That is the problem in a nut shell, until the people understand the power of greed upon our society, everything else doesn't mean a thing;
    Have a Non- Shopping week and see if things start to change,
    We have all the power, if we use it, NO GUNS< NO WAR< JUST STAY AWAY FROM EVERYTHING EXCEPT BASIC NEEDS;
    AMERICANS ARE SUCH IDIOTS

  11. Why does the Est. Dems. keep screaming about "Bernie Bros"? Because, for the first time in history, progressives opinion's matter. And they just CAN"T STAND THAT! So they are now totally consumed with trying to make sure that our opinions never matter again.

  12. A revived communist party would be a better option than anything the democrats could offer in 2018.

  13. Thank you! They're all acting like catty little girls and trying their best to fight each other over the dumbest shit ever. None of what they say matters and they act like they have been deemed the Progressive Judge. They think they get to decide who makes the list and if it's enough to be a progressive. Well… they all need to eat a slice of STFU cake. Stop blaming everyone for everything and get the fuck over who lost the election. It was fucking hacked, neither of them would have won. Why are you fighting like children? Most liberals share the same beliefs on the basics and almost everything. Why progressives want to assume dominance over the democratic party is beyond me. You're almost the same. If you hate dems so much, start your own damned party.If you're too lazy to do that, shut up. You are not pirates, and you will never take over the Democratic party. If we don't all get over ourselves and work together we will all lose. This time it will be on us. There, I said it and I feel better!

  14. Progressives are such negative whiners. Nobody cares about your pity party. You are at the bottom of the political food chain.

  15. I really think Bernie needs to step aside.
    I agree, we have to move on. Including Bernie.What we need is youth.These older folks are great. But their baggage, history, we have to constantly defend.Retire & Consult. Give advice, throw a fundraiser, but let the next generation lead. & Bernie is still a independent.
    Why did you go there?

  16. Thanks….I agree with what you said 100%

  17. We also need an influx of YOUNGER people.

  18. Farron Cousins, what about Independents like myself. I could NEVER vote democrat after the failure that is OBAMACARE.
    Having a MANDATE THAT FORCES individuals to have insurance or be fined is government overreach BIG TIME and a step towards communism.
    The democrats don't even understand about individuals that are here LEGALLY or ILLEGALLY, as well as you can't differentiate between LEGAL and ILLEGALLY obtained firearms.
    You blame the firearm over the intent of a GODLESS TERRORIST, and some have become HOME GROWN GODLESS TERRORISTS shooting at our GOP representatives, doing mock be-headings of Trump etc… .
    Unless you put up candidates that start acting like responsible lawmakers following the Bill Of Rights and Constitution, many including myself WILL NOT SUPPORT YOU, and you can bet your life on it.

  19. I voted for Bernie in the primaries,and hill in the general.but for the Bernie zealots to give the Gop the supreme Court for another 20 years if Bernie gets to nom. in 2020 I may not vote.these idiots don't even vote in midterms.

  20. Investigation into Hillary's treasonous actions? I must have missed that. Capitulation that an oligarch can't be indicted much less prosecuted, ok I get that. Either way though let's move on because that dead cat will never be brought to justice anyway.

  21. The Dimbulbs have already cooked their goose for 2018…mainly because of guys like Penis with ears here. American people around the country have no clue about Comey…Russia and they get PISSED when you throw around SERIOUS issues like Impeachment so handily….Trump is getting SHIT DONE…your whining like a child.

  22. We can't move on until the DNC takes their jackboots off our throats. There can be no unity if we can't breathe.

  25. Sorry Sparky. While I would have preferred Sanders, I still knew enough to vote for Clinton. Anyone who didn't, contributed to a lost election. Those people bought into propaganda from conservatives and from people like you. Hillary would have been a decent president. Sanders would have been better. Hillary was who we needed to vote for if we were serious about our vote counting. Making broad and stupid statement about how the dems didn't persuade the people to vote for Hillary is a waste of time. The dems didn't waste their vote. You did. Own it.

  26. Some of these goofballs must really like the right wing and their agenda because they are working hard to help keep them in office.
    Progressives get your act together. Stop with the bullshit blame game for God's sake and look to the future for America and its people. The past is the past, get over it already. The 2018 mid-terms are right around the corner. FOCUS!!!!
    Get forward looking people at the top and adopt a TRUE Progressive agenda to move this country into the 21st century.
    MAKE AMERICA SANE AGAIN!!!

  27. I just, not kidding you, less than an hour ago heard some conservative radio host on an ad say that he's often critical of his base and that's something liberals never do. Can someone tell me who it was (I missed the name), so I can forward that bullshit artist this video, and let him know of Secular Talk, who often criticizes democrats as well? That guy is so full of shit. I guess he never heard of Bernie Sanders, who often criticizes democrats as well. It's the last thing I want to hear when I'm listening to a sports game, which is how I ended up hearing that quote.

  28. the democrats have no choice but to move to the middle to try and pull over sain republican. progressives can't be trusted to show up to vote. they are young they are passionate and if they don't get 100% of what they want they will walk away. how does any political party try and include people like this.

  29. I agree with what you are saying i never thought america would be like this what are going to leave our children a f–King mess lets stop this the rape of america. Wake the F–K up America!

  30. How about a No More Party Party? Bipartisan politics have served more to psychologically divide the people and enrich the 1%. How about simply voting for candidates based on their policies and how they will help maximize the constitutional rights of the people first and foremost?

  31. omg! this video is exactly how i feel! cuz i voted for bernie in the primary and for hillary in the general. so yeah, I hate bernie or bust/ jill steiners, and I hate hillary supporters that bitch about bernie.

  32. Don't worry, Hillary's dropping out.

  33. Farron gets it. Side note – Anyone other progressive sometimes feel like a kid in the middle of divorced parents, with step parents all yelling at the same time? All you want to do is tell them all to SHUT THE FUCK UP! Mom, breakfast with you, Dad, dinner with you, and we can all have lunch together, if you can shut up long enough to listen to me tell you I'M RUNNING AWAY, AND ALL OF YOU LOSE ME, if you can't get your site together! Maybe it's just me…..

  35. Democrats are talented at eating each other alive. Democrats will keep losing as long as the keep giving a voice to the SJW/raging feminist crowd.

  36. The democrats will lose bigtime in the midterm and they will continue to lose unless we can dislodge the Hillary people. I will never vote for a corporate democrat again.

  37. I'll be glad to move on from Hillary as soon as she and her supporters admit it was largely her fault she lost in 2016 by being a center-right corporate shill and that Bernie should've been the Democratic nominee.

  38. Simple answer to the question asked in the header – NO.

  39. Farron this is the first thing I disagree with you on I think. the DNC is just as corrupt as the RNC. they are all bought off and we have decided that we are no longer going to back any candidate from any party that is bought off by corporations. it's not a debate we will not unify I will vote green party or I will vote for Trump just to stick it in the dnc's ass. they need to go back to being what this party was when it started real progressives taking real Progressive action, anything less and I will not back them ever
