The Democrats lost the election. Would someone tell them, and help them to behave like grown-ups?

Other elections have been disappointing and problematic. People who voted in 2016 were tired of failed political lack of respect. They wanted change from President Barack Obama's divisiveness. 

At one time I was a strong Democrat, but that party was dropped mainly because of their closed-mindedness, evil actions of abortion, neglect of real help for parents and schools, as well as people crying for jobs. It all fell on deaf ears. Democrats have lowered or lost the true standard of unity or debate, if any at all. 

Remember when Democrats spit on our soldiers coming back from Vietnam? It would have been nice if they had learned from that error of mind and soul. 

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren should be reminded that Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd, who died a few years ago, was once a Ku Klux Klan knight. I didn't hear the Democrats or Republicans condemn him with old quotes and actions while he was in the Senate. Democrats supported the KKK for many years. 

Plus, President Franklin Roosevelt tore Japanese Americans from their homes and corralled them during World War II. Yes, Democrats, your behavior has been divisive and sickeningly un-American. We watch your behavior now and remember your past.
