    Not concern as much as showing reality

    Speaking as someone who has never been a Democrat, I think the Democratic Party has taken a turn for the better recently. For too long they were basically committed to chasing the GOP to the right. They had this notion that if they were just willing to meet the Republicans more than half way (e.g., adopting Romneycare almost completely), they'd win bipartisan support. But since the conservative base demands plenty of daylight between Republican positions and whatever the Democrats want, the result of that strategy was just to force the Republicans farther and farther to the right. The harder the Democrats tried to be "Republicans Lite," the more extreme the Republicans would become. Now, granted, you could argue that strategy was successful in building popularity for the Democrats. When you compare the era from 1968 to 1988, to the period between 1992 and 2008, the Democrats were certainly vastly more successful at appealing to the American people in national elections in the latter period (winning the popular vote in six of the last seven presidential elections). But winning popular support doesn't matter if you're basically constantly shifting the Overton Window to the right. So, I'd be happy to see a more aggressive and principled liberal position from the Democrats, rather than this constant thought that somehow they can win over the racist white "working class" if they just parrot the Republicans well enough.
    Your post shows you are a democrat

    Then why are they doing everything to destroy themselves?

    Or is it people too stupid to realize what they are doing to themselves?
