Rules for the Dems

I only hope the Democrats sit down and start organizing for 2018 and 2020.

First rule of order: Tell the Clintons “no thank you.” We want absolutely no involvement from you. Nothing. You can’t run, you can’t endorse. Don’t appear in any candidate’s campaign adds, don’t show your faces on any TV show, don’t tweet and don’t raise money. Nothing means nothing.

Donna Brazile, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Chris Matthews, same goes for you. We don’t need or want your baggage.

Second rule: Howard Dean, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, put your egos down and lead the young Turks who are the future of the party. We need young candidates. We need you to mentor them. We need to make statements about where we are going, not answer questions that have no meaning but to distract us from our path. Benghazi, emails, whatever Obama did or didn’t do mean nothing and deserve no response.

We don’t need to focus for one minute on the Donald. He will screw himself much quicker if we pay no attention to him. Let’s give honest answers about who is getting welfare, not emotional rants that let the fat cats keep lapping up the cream. Then we can make America a country we can all be proud of.
