Why Democrats Loss the Election–They have an Identity Crisis What would JFK tell them?

In the last few days, I have been pondering why the Democrats lost a couple weeks ago. I could identify two key reasons:

1. Lower voting turn out from their base and disillusion by Americans that voting will change the direction of the counter

2. Running away from what their core values are.

Below, you will find the answer to Democratic Party members who lost their elections. Be proud to be a Progressive and Liberal to run against or away from your core values.  Please listen to this speech from John F. Kennedy’s accepting the endorsement of the Democratic Party for the 1960 presidential election. Here is an excerpt from that speech that rings true today and needs to be our core value for 2016.

“ What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label “Liberal?” If by “Liberal” they mean, as they want people to believe, someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer’s dollar, then the record of this party and its members demonstrate that we are not that kind of “Liberal.” But if by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.” JFK
