The truth is that a disfunctional Democratic Party devoid of ideas is no good for Conservatives either. It would be great to have an exchange of ideas and it keeps Conservatives on their toes .
Sadly a formerly great party has lost its bearings. As Mr Beamish put it too much Jesse Jackson and barely any Scoop Jackson. Where are the patriotic liberals that need to take control of the party.
America is not receptive to the blame America first crowd. The Democrats have forgotten elections in the USA are won in Walmarts not in Faculty lounges or Hollywood. The sad truth is that the Democrats have lost touch with America.
The little man sees his Gas , Phone , Beer and proprty taxes. The Democrats say gas taxes are good for the environment. The problem is that these politicaly correct taxes hurt the working people they claim to represent. The message is that if the environmentalists or nicotine nuts say screw the working man thats okay. That is not the Democratic party I knew.
The anti military excesses and biases are not Democrasts as we knew them twenty years ago. The anti Christian hatred and claiming that religious conservatives are stupid is not the party I knew. The tolerance of anti semitism was at least mentioned by Govenor Dean . Yet our liberal blogs pretend Dean is a conservative.
Maybe its time for Rudy Republicans and the last Scoop Jackson Democrats to form a replacement party. We can call ourselves the Moderate party . Pro America , Socially liberal with no Communists or blame America first types.
