Harold Monteau: Democrats lack proactive agenda and proactive strategy

Democrats lost the White House and have failed to gain traction in Congress with the election of more Republicans in Georgia and Montana. So where does the party go from here? Harold Monteau, a citizen of the Chippewa Cree Tribe, says exposing the GOP playbook should be on the agenda:
The Democratic Elite are not unlike zombies slowly moving down what they don’t know is a circular path through the woods in search of a brain, passing by the same landmarks countless times without recognizing that they have been there before.

Mostly I refer to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Super Delegates and the DNC Executive Leadership at the National and State Levels. If they do have a strategy for 2018 and 2020, they are holding it a close secret from the rank and file Democrats. From recent events, I’m more inclined to believe they simply have no strategy other than taking more money from the rich and their corporate donors to sustain themselves in positions of power.

The DNC Elite seem to think that they can just “do nothing” and the Republican (GOP) Administration, Majority Republican Congress and Majority Republican State Legislatures (39) will self-destruct and everything will just fall into place and votes will rain down from the heavens if they can just hold the course and depend on the voters they alienated in 2016 (and years before that) once again and that Trumpers and Trumpettes will realize their mistake and vote Democrat. It’s delusional.
