1) Historically, the DemoKKKrats are in a remarkably dangerous position. When a major party cannot take a position that at least appears to be aligned with a majority of Americans' attitudes, it is in deep trouble.
2) Consider the Whig Party of 1830-1850. The DemoKKKrats had already staked out as their issue the preservation and protection of slavery. This was the foundational point of the party as designed by Martin Van Buren.
3) Their only opponent, the Whigs, on the contrary REFUSED to take a position against slavery---which is what the other (at least) half of the country wanted.
4) When the Whigs could not mobilize anyone because they would not oppose slavery, they vanished into dust faster than Thanos's victims

5) Already, pro-slavery was a minority position as the new Republican party showed in 1856 when it almost won the election.
6) So what implications does that have for us today? Today, the DemoKKKrats are the pro-iillegal open borders party---which according to ALL polls is a minority position and a position which is rapidly shrinking.
7) Regardless of the latest mid-term results (remember, DemoKKKrats won the 1856 presidential election even when the handwriting was on the wall), the DemoKKKrats have no platform that is in line with a large majority of Americans.
8) This does not bode well for them, and reinforces my position that the only thing standing between the GOP and massive victory is a better marketing approach. When you hold the views of 90% of Americans and 65% of DemoKKKrats, you know that's a winning position.
9) Trump can nail this door shut tonight, and it won't take much. Spell out the problem, remind Americans of those invaders in the "caravans," and state the obvious.

There is nothing the fake news media or Nunchucks (the Botoxic/SpewMore combo) can do to counter this . . .
9) contd. . . . any more than there was anything the DemoKKKrats in the 1850s could do to turn the tide of the free soil, anti-slavery movement.

10) They are entirely on the wrong side of history.
