    What has happened to the Democratic party?

    According to polls, they prefer socialism over capitalism?
    This can't be correct, I doubt most in the poll understand what socialism really is.


    Then we have the angry Islamic tyyes, one of which recently said she was at five with the Nazi holocaust. A racist statment, which was not even called out by Democrat leaders.


    What's going on here?

    They have been taken over by the fringe movement.

    Seriously, when Nancy Pelosi of all people is at odds with another member of congress (specifically AOC) in her own party because that member of congress is crazy and an extremist, you know you have gone too far

    Re: What has happened to the Democratic party?

    If Trump doesn't win again I'm actually frightened what could happen with the clown this "party" puts up.

    Every single one of them is just pandering to "brown" people with something each week. They are the party of big government that wants to make decisions for you because apparently you are too stupid to.

    Reparations, free college, free healthcare, no borders, amnesty to illegals ... it's nonstop and disgusting. And if you question any of their new "policies" you're a RACIST.

    Doesn't matter what they say, they are doing just that: pandering. If they get into office they will forget all promises until re-election time.

    But Dems and Reps (aside from Trump) seemingly don't truly care about the country, just lining their own pockets by keeping the fires stoked on issues they claim to want to resolve but never do .. even when given the chance. Like a super majority etc.

    They only vote for stuff that would solve issues when they know there are enough votes against it to keep it alive and well.

    I hate the government, they are just a bunch of worthless pukes. Especially Congress, they literally don't do anything and get buku vacation days + salary. It's sickening.

    These hearing are a farce. Backup manufactured B.S. after the Russian Collusion scandal the Dems have been trying to push for 2 years backfired with Adam Schiff as the director. The whole way the Dems have gone about this is pure B.S

    What happened to the Republican Party or politics in general. They’re all a bunch of equal dirtbags that are ruining the country.

    Democrats lust for power exceeds their greed for $. The party of open borders and big government, KKK, slavery and high taxes should implode.

    Before this thread derails into what-aboutism can we just agree that both parties have been playing us against each other for over 60 years?

    I can agree that big government sucks and that all news is fake news.

    Absolutely. And both parties rig the system so that they are the only viable options. They also conspire behind the scenes for cash and influence.

    Having said that, both parties are not equally unhinged these days. The Democratic Party has wandered off into the weeds like a drunk on a bicycle, leaving their core constituency without representation. The Republicans have all the problems they've had previously, but at least they're stable.

    The whole 'impeachment' thing is hilarious. The Dems shot themselves in the foot and then proceeded to hobble around on a "victory" lap.

    LMAO. Sure, he's not.

    Let's see,


    • First president to get a permanent measure of gun control passed since 1986. (Clinton's was time-limited except for instant background checks). And, he did it by executive fiat.
    • He has never spoke out against Obamacare as a concept. Only that it costs too much. He was for single-payer and has never spoken against the idea (only the cost of single-payer systems already in place).
    • He is protectionist. Something that has long been against Republican ideals.
    • He raised taxes. I know, I know, it was called a "tax cut." However, he actually raised taxes on over 10 million families due to eliminating exemptions, capping SALT deductions, and other such things.


    Perhaps the one thing he has done that is "Conservative" while in office is installing conservative judges in the Ninth Circuit court and in the Supreme court.

    What ever party he truly belongs to.... no matter what I, you or anyone else thinks of him.... he gets things done. I'll be voting for him again.

    Trump isn't conservative *or* liberal. He's a populist nationalist. If he had run as an independent, I think conservatives wouldn't like him as much and liberals would hate him less.
    Interesting how partisanship skews people's perceptions...

    I think that's accurate. I don't like the man..... I never did, even before his political aspirations. I don't care about his personal life or anything he has done in the past . I only care what he does as POTUS of my country. I'm satisfied with the results so far. I'll vote for him again.

    Indeed. I voted third party last time, but this time I will definitely be voting for him.

    I think there are a lot of people who think the same as you. A lot of people who didn't vote for him last time will this time.
    When the early results started coming in in 2016, It became apparent that all of the polls were wrong and they were going to lose. Bill Clinton was said to remark "I guess Brexit was real after all". Well... just a week ago, the Brits held an election and the Tories absolutely curb- stomped Labor. The biggest landslide for the Conservatives since 1935... Now they have a clear mandate to pull out of the EU in less than a month.
    The left,the Dems, the media, the pundits... They still don't get it: This 'national populism' thing is real, and it's bigger than ever.
    Donald Trump has never been my cup of tea, but even I've considered voting for him this time... if only to spite the a-holes who make him out to be the next Hitler. Dude's actually done quite well in his first term; better than I ever expected him to. Credit where it's due.
    Not to say that I will vote for him this time, but... As Chris Rock would say: "I understand".

    And back on the subject at hand, who do the Dems have that can hope to compete with Trump? That entire field is a freakin' clown show! The only one there I'd even remotely consider voting for is Tulsi Gabbard, and the Party doesn't even want her near the debate stage, let alone the nomination. The only viable candidates they have are Joe Biden (creepy gaffe factory with a mountain of dirt), Bernie Sanders (ancient socialist with health problems), and Elizabeth Warren (lefty opportunist with major credibility issues). None of these people is even a light workout for Trump in a general election. If something doesn't change in a hurry, he's gonna nuke 'em from orbit in 2020.

    I think Hillary is going to run for POTUS. She'll wait until it's down to 2 or 3 and announce her candidacy once most of the debates are over. Something something 'I can't just stand by and watch us lose to DT, I love this country to much to let him win again'. It will spark up the Dems and she'll try to ride that momentum into the White House.

    It'd be hilarious (no pun intended) if she did. She lost last time before he had every advantage, the powers- that- be were backing her, and her dirt was (mostly) under wraps. Nobody wants her around now, least of all the Dems. She'd get slaughtered.
    But perhaps that's the best outcome for the Dems in the short term; they can blame the loss on her instead of themselves...

    Liberals will vote for her. Liberals don't care what happens to America. CNN has ordered liberals to blindly hate Trump no matter the cost.

    Didn't work for her last time, did it? the liberals are a tiny (but vocal) minority even in the Dem party itself. There aren't enough of them to win. Trump took away the blue collar union vote, which was a major part of the Dem coalition. The Dems have made no effort to win them back, and Trump is actually popular with that group now because he made them promises and actually kept them. The economy is booming, unemployment is at an all time low, and his approval rate is steady at 45%. Anybody would have a hard time defeating a sitting President under these circumstances.
    Hillary would get slaughtered like a bunny.
