The 2018 midterms in Congress are fast approaching, and the Democratic Party seemingly believes they're going to take the new year to the bank and prosper with numerous victories. The GOP is reliant heavily on Trump's victories to counter this.
<b>Undoubtedly, the 2018 midterms will decide the future of this country.</b>
With <i>endless new prospects</i> in the Republican Party, including fresh faces and brilliant ideas, the GOP hopes to make an impression upon American voters.
The Democratic Party is left <i>without any legitimate leadership</i>at this point, but the advantage they do have over the GOP are high-powered financiers of their campaigns.
Even with the Democratic Party typically leading the race in terms of cash, in 2018 the GOP is far ahead in regards to fundraising.
<a href="https://www.opensecrets.org/parties/">Open Secrets </a>reports that as of February 8th of 2018, the GOP has raised $425,400,004. Of that, they've spent roughly $262,838,448. This leaves the Republican Party with $108,727,910 cash-on-hand. The GOP still have $11,707,378 in debts.

<a href="https://www.opensecrets.org/parties/">Open Secrets </a>reports that as of February 8th of 2018, the Democratic Party has raised $303,817,586. Of that, they've spent roughly $257,616,771. This leaves the Democratic Party with $80,386,320 cash-on-hand. The Democrats still have $11,831,234 in debts.
This is a far cry from the 2016 campaigns where Hillary Clinton raised an estimated $1.4 billion dollars and Donald Trump raised $957.6 million dollars in comparison.
The current status of the Democratic Party of being behind the GOP is rather shocking, but it's to be expected when they have the same faces such as Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) leading their parties, who are the same faces that have consistently seen the Democrats in defeat since President Trump took office.
Overwhelming support for the Democratic Party through paid counter-narrative shilling groups doesn't account for the totals that the Democratic Party has raised either.
As we know, Barack Obama uses his nonprofit<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/7016-Obama-and-Soros-Shadow-Government-Organizing-AntiFa-for-Phoenix-Trump-Rally"> "Organizing for Action" </a>to incite protests nationwide. We've also seen groups funneling cash from George Soros' Open Society Foundation in cooperation with Obama's OFA in their joint effort known as<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/3655-Indivisible-George-Soros-Newest-Coalition-Better-off-Invisible"> "Project Indivisible" </a>.
There's also an army of what's often referred to as "paid-shilling groups," all of which lean to the left and attempt to discredit modern Conservative media.
<h3><b>This comes in five separate categories:</b></h3>
The first being paid online trolls.<a href="http://www.thegoldwater.com/news/5176-Media-Matters-From-CTR-to-Shareblue-How-Paid-Shills-Attempt-to-Distort-the-Truth"> The Goldwater has previously published </a>an exposé on these types of groups.
These nonprofits are made up of groups such as the<a href="https://thinkprogress.org"> Think Progress</a>, the<a href="http://www.thejidf.org/?m=1"> JIDF</a>,<a href="https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Correct_the_Record"> Correct The Record</a>,<a href="https://www.mediamatters.org"> Media Matters for America</a>, and even<a href="https://shareblue.com"> Shareblue Media. </a>
Two of the outlets, Media Matters and Shareblue are led by David Brock, the oftentimes<a href="https://voat.co/v/pizzagate/1915063"> controversial Democratic operative </a>who has an extremely<a href="http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/02/27/media-matters-boss-paid-former-partner-850g-blackmail-settlement.html"> long history </a>of being connected to shady individuals and left-wing propagandists, as well as<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/11919-David-Brock-and-Media-Matters-Shills-Owe-IRS-while-Receiving-Funding-from-Democratic-Firms"> having owed the IRS millions </a>of dollars through a tax-fraud scheme.
The second force the Democratic Party has also used is so-called "civil rights groups" which seem to target anyone who supports President Trump.
These groups, such as the<a href="https://www.adl.org"> Anti-Defamation League </a>(ADL), the<a href="https://www.splcenter.org"> Southern Poverty Law Center </a>(SPLC), and others who attempt to label Conservatives and Trump supporters as being "racist" are more often than not disingenuous.
It seems that throughout 2017 and now in 2018 anyone who even spouts support for President Trump is labeled by one of these groups, which has de-legitimized their prowess and power.
We've seen it on several occasions, with even journalists that support Trump being called a "bigot". One of those journalists, Laura Loomer, is actually Jewish. These types of claims from the ADL make them irrelevant.
It's a sad day in America when these groups no longer value American idealism or tradition and instead have become weaponized arms of the Democratic Party.
Third, the Democrats have the backing of "Big Tech" platforms and social media.
Whether it's the efforts of<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/8469-Since-Mark-Zuckerberg-Sold-Ads-to-Russia-to-Influence-US-Election-Doesn-t-That-Make-Him-A-Criminal"> Mark Zuckerberg </a>on the social media giant <a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/3821-GasLighting-By-The-Mainstream-Media-Created-Their-Own-Incineration"> Facebook </a>to censor the right,<a href="http://thehill.com/policy/technology/356966-prageru-sues-google-youtube-for-censoring-conservative-videos"> Google's YouTube </a>shutting down videos from Conservatives, the CEO of<a href="https://techcrunch.com/2016/11/23/reddit-huffman-trump/"> Reddit admitting to </a>deleting comments from Trump supporters, or even<a href="https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/01/12/project_veritas_hidden_camera_twitter_and_reddit_do_shadow_ban_certain_political_opinions.html"> Twitter intentionally shadowbanning </a>Trump supporters, even deleting the President of the United States of America's account at one point, they all tend to lean dramatically towards the Democratic Party.
The giant of the group, being Facebook, is known to shut down and ban Conservatives while<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/15237-Facebook-Child-Porn-Ring-Busted-AGAIN-How-Does-Mark-Zuckerberg-Keep-Getting-Away-With-It"> simultaneously allowing child pornography </a>rings to operate for years on the platform.
While those who support Trump are fully aware of this hypocrisy, the platform still reaches billions which present a scary "1984" form of indoctrination.
Each of them respectively has a history of censoring Trump supporters and Conservatives in general.
The fourth type of organization the Democrats have<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/7112-Tech-Giant-s-Fake-News-Censorship-Backfires-Against-Left-Wing-Websites"> assisting their efforts </a>are "Fact Checkers" such as Media Bias Fact Check, Snopes, or<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/910-Politifact-Is-All-Pro-Vaccine-And-Pro-GMO"> Politifact </a>.
<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/8908-Fact-Checking-the-Fact-Checkers-Part-I">The Goldwater </a>itself has been a victim of the Democratic leaning "Fact Checkers", and many outlets such as<a href="http://mobile.wnd.com/2017/02/phony-baloney-the-9-fakest-fake-news-checkers/"> WND.com </a>have completely annihilated these groups for their overwhelming bias.
It doesn't matter which Conservative media outlet you search, the "Fact Checkers" will report against them. Pick one and try it.
Snopes has been caught in<a href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4730092/Snopes-brink-founder-accused-fraud-lying.html"> major scandals </a>involving prostitution, fraud, and cheating with one of the founders.
Politifact is tied directly to the Clinton Foundation through a mega-donor, as reported by<a href="http://www.weeklystandard.com/conflict-of-interest-politifact-and-the-clinton-foundation-share-megadonor/article/2004689"> The Weekly Standard</a>.
It appears as if the "Fact Checkers" have an overwhelming Democratic bias, and are literally a handful of Democratic operatives in their basement spewing rhetoric to discredit Conservatives.
The fifth and final type of weapon benefiting the Democratic Party is the overwhelming support their candidates obtain through the mainstream media. Whether it be ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, or even FOX News, it appears as if they all have ownership which supports the left.
Even Fox News has a history of owner Rupert Murdoch's children donating millions of dollars to the Clinton Campaign, as<a href="http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/01/29/fox-is-one-of-the-biggest-donors-to-the-clintons/"> reported by Breitbart.</a> Fox News does have brilliant primetime pundits such as Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro, as well as a few daytime stars who spout overwhelming truth in regards to President Trump's victories, and I personally support those individuals.
The point still stands though, many of these "news" organizations work against the President of the United States of America.
The media's bias is undoubtedly outnumbered against Conservatives.
So while the GOP and President Trump leads the way in terms of personal donations and fundraising efforts overall, the Democratic Party has the advantage because of their ties to so many major companies and platforms which people get their information from.
What the Democratic Party does not have, is <b>leadership</b>.
The Democrats are seemingly lost as of 2018. The economic boom is roaring loudly, Black unemployment is at an all-time low, Hispanic unemployment is at an all-time low, the number of companies building new manufacturing plants in America has overwhelmingly soared under Trump, unemployment in and of itself is low, wages have increased, tax reform has created a massive trickle-down system of growth for the everyday American resulting in bonuses or higher paychecks, and America is winning abroad.
Compile those winning factors with the fact that the President of the United States of America has extended an olive branch to the Democratic Party in an effort to give essential amnesty to 1.8 million Americans, and you have the illegals themselves turning on the Democratic Party for refusing the President's offer. If they were to take the deal, the left-wing base would likely become infuriated because it would give the President his funding for the border wall.
The Democratic Party is more divided now than ever before.
<strong><span style="color:red;">They have no platform to stand upon. I can't think of a clear message the Democrats are offering to the people of America.</span></strong>
<b>What is it they even stand for, except standing against President Trump?</b>
There's absolutely nothing left to resist. What are the Democrats even resisting in 2018?
So the scales are clearly unbalanced, with the Democrats having the mainstream media, virtue signaling organizations, big tech, paid shilling groups, and supposed fact checkers working against the GOP. That's their advantage.
Currently, the GOP has more in fundraising and can tout all of the President of the United States of America's victories.
It will be an indefinite clash in 2018, and only time will tell as to how the left cranks up their information war against the right.

As for the Democratic Party, they've yet to find a message to resonate with the voters, outside of endlessly bashing Trump and in doing so, trampling upon America and the people's values.
What will happen in 2018 is yet to be determined, but regardless of which party you support, <i>it's crucial you organize a grassroots movement and get out to vote</i>.

I think this article is pretty much spot on. I voted republican this last election all the way from Trump to anyone else republican running for office. The democRATS do not have a platform at all except for hating Trump and loving illegals . Nothing got us tax paying American citizens .
