Squabbling among Democrats could be their downfall
I’m now a Democrat, but once upon a time, I was a Republican. Loved the style of Frank Fasi, who I believed invented the “Shaka” sign. Always appreciated his work ethics and the way he worked for his people in Oahu. Could have been a great governor, I believed. He didn’t care what people thought, said or did. He just had his ways of getting things done. What a guy, I thought.
But for some odd reasons, he must have done or said something that really bothered me, and though I didn’t care for Ariyoshi, I changed to the Democratic Party, and have been, since. But then, who cares what party affiliate I belonged to.
The Republicans are too afraid of Donald Trump that nothing he says or does, good or bad, but mostly bad, they won’t try to go against him. That’s a known fact. The Democrats, well, I guess they are doing fairly well, but must learn to get along with each other.
Look at what they are doing and saying about and to each other. Look at those democratic hopefuls vying for the presidential seat. They all want Trump out, and they all said that they will do whatever it takes to get him out. But guess what? They are fighting among each other, cutting down and bringing things up from the past, and really trying to be the candidate they think could get to unseat Trump in the 2020 election.
Come on now, and let’s all be serious for once. They are certainly and truly not all in the top three or fifth positions to be the ones to kick Trump out. They have already said, marred, disgraced, belittled, degraded and brought things of the past of the most qualified person who I personally believe and hoped he’d be just the person to give Trump the boot.
But what? They instead rattled their mouths off just to boost themselves to become the one contender and the potential candidate or nominee of their people’s choices My opinion of them that, by kicking the No. 1 person with a bunch of negativities, would be the only pathways for themselves to possibly try and beat Trump. Really? How so? Big chances.
The squabbles in the Democratic Party now could really be the downfall for them, if they don’t watch out. Wow! What a shame. Do you really believe that having all of fighting going on in the Democratic Party will be the way of getting Trump out? Of course not.
Whether you’re young or old, been there less than a year or forever, just be there to help and work for some causes and work towards doing good for the people, rather than believing who is right or wrong. Shape up, Democrats and try working together. You are all hurting yourselves and the Democratic Party.
Your main intention is to beat Trump. Doing what all of you are now doing to and among each other won’t be the way to beat Trump. Get with it.
