Democrats continue to play prevent-defense instead of aggressively telling Americans why they believe they are better stewards of the country. Worse, their push back on Republican catastrophically evil legislation is at best timid. They act as if 2018 is a shoo-in. Roland Martin says it best as he busts their bubble.

Roland Martin warns Democrats

"Here's the thing with what Graham said that people have to understand," Roland Martin said. "And Democrats are running around saying oh my god with the possibility here. The fact the matter is the Republican Party is not imploding when you control 31 governor's mansions. When you control legislators, House, Senate, and the White House, more importantly, the Judiciary, you're not imploding. Yeah, you have these internal fights. But this is about power. This is not about principles or character or morals and values. They want to maintain power. Trump is the vessel that allows them to do so. And so they'll fall in line. Jeff Flake, that wasn't courageous what he did. Courageous is to still run. Courageous to say I'm gonna campaign around Arizona and speak the truth and if I lose that's fine. I'm not giving anybody props for giving a speech and cutting and running. No, you stand up, and you stay in the office. You challenge them. That's how you do it. But people have to stop thinking the Republican Party is dead. They're not. And we you see what's happening in North Carolina, where it is sadistic what they're doing, where it is undemocratic. With Wisconsin, those states. We ignore what's happening in these states. Texas, five times they lost in the federal courts over voter ID. It cost three million dollars. It is real, what they're doing."

Roland Martin gave Democrats a necessary warning that one hopes they heed as they continue their journey of snatching defeat from what should be a victory. Democrats need to fight like Republicans.
