The democratic party is in disarray right now, similar to the republican party after Obama was elected.
Unfortunately for the democrats they don't have a back-up in waiting like the Tea Party so it may take them longer to find their way but it's obvious the status quo no longer will do. We are kind of waiting to see which group rises to the top to replace the far left liberalism that runs the democrats now.
Most of my colleagues are assuming the big change will come between 2018 and 2020.
There's a movement here in Cleveland to start a Progressive Party, but it's not an actual third party for purposes of registering to vote at this time. I guess I am an independent for now.
Since we have closed primaries, I have no idea whether this is where things will remain for me, but probably so.
I think the GOP that I once supported is dead and buried, killed by the Religious Right.
NAFTA was wrong, but I just found out recently that was a GHW Bush. Clinton just signed it. That was a mistake.
I do think Democrats wasted too much time and effort on Special Interests,neglecting the average worker. That will change.
Perez was the Labor Secretary. He implemented many good changes.
DWS and her flunkies in the DNC starved the State Parties. She was an utter failure.
Perez,his deputy,along with Howard Dean,who really built the party,along with President Obama will rebuild the State parties.
There will be major changes from the ground up. Terry McAllife did the same thing. Even Reibus had to rebuild the RNC?
There will be much more concentration on the average voter.
The scare tactics about the ACA cost many Democratic seats.isn't it strange now,people are scared to death of losing their ACA?
And,I am quite happy Democrats rejected Bernie's choice. Maybe now,he will shut up and go away. Only the media is propping him up now.
You helped elect Trump. You mentioned Blue Dogs. That is a Blue Dog.
Democrats make mistakes,but I know what they have done for the average person.we would have had single payer if not for Republicans and a couple of turn coat Democrats. Both parties rejected Leiberman. He has now joined no Labels. I thought they would be good until I found Leiberman had joined.
It is a BIG FAT LIE that Democrats EVER made ANY effort to install universal care. Hillarycare circa 1992 is EXACTLY like Obamacare, and BOTH are nothing but corporate welfare.
And they still aren't fighting for universal care now. Why not?
If winning is all that matters to Democrats, they are useless. That approach makes it all about the politicians and their careers and not one bit about the working man and the poor.
