Letter: Democrats, tell me what you stand for

Years ago when I started in the sales profession, an instructor in one of my first classes made the statement, “it is not wise to downgrade the competition.” Instead, explain how much better your product is than theirs.

As an independent voter I would like to pass that statement on to the Democrats.

You can’t win an election without my vote and until you can tell me what you stand for and quit whining about how bad Donald Trump is you’ll never get that vote.
