What is Happening to the Democrat Party?


The Democrat party seems troubled.  When negotiating a curve at high speed, too tight a turn can shake up passengers, test the integrity of the carrying vehicle, and deliver everything into the pucker brush.  Arguably, this is where the national Democratic Party is headed, if they don’t slow down, start thinking about where their public positions are leading, and reorient.

Take top issues – and unpack them.  They do not align with seniors or average Americans. The question behind the question:  What are national Democrats thinking?  Why break-neck speed into 2020’s turn?

  • Two Democrat Governors (New York and Virginia) have advocated late-term and at-birth abortion (in Virginia, outright killing of a child after birth, so long as the infant is “made comfortable”).  The bill became law in New York and remains under serious discussion in Virginia.  How can there be no national Democrat opposition to such a horrifying, unconscionable, and immoral act? 

Across American history, in most countries of the world, in the conscience of most Americans, this is murder.  Yet the liberal media buried the issue – diverting to other unseemly acts.  Where is the American media on this?  The notion that we would, as a nation, condone this is chilling.

  • Congressional Democrats proposed a “Green New Deal,” that swiftly ends reliance on fossil fuels (of which the United States is the world’s top producer), seeks federal control of America’s energy sector (since they have done so well with health care), mandates to retrofit all buildings, ends modern agriculture, transportation, security, and capitalist norms such as pay for work (i.e. paying those “unwilling to work”), terminates air travel, and proposes other unworkable, nonsensical federal dictates.  Where are national Democrat leaders?  Where is the media?

While led by New York Democrat member of Congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who has given herself the nom de guerre “AOC,” ala “FDR, JFK, MLK, in her personal war with traditional American values, she was oddly joined by a flood of Democrats.  Really?

On closer examination, the bill looks like rewarmed Soviet doctrine, a bold socialist agenda that tips toward totalitarian control over production, forced redistribution of wealth, centralized decision-making, the antithesis of limited government, individual rights, state sovereignty, and private property control.  The text gives a shiver.  Where are Democrat voices of reason?

  • Democrats in Congress push openly “Medicare for All” to end private and employer-covered health insurance for 150 million Americans – ala Bernie Sanders.  Like the Green Deal, no price tag – or source of funding. The unmasked plan is simple:  Usurp the private sector, states and individual rights and transfer control to the federal government.  Soaking an invisible class of taxpayers (read: middle class) for unaccountable, unmanageable, and highly wasteful single -payer-system.  Breathtaking is one word for this audacity.  Ignorance – of history and economics – is another.
  • Next, a raft of Democrat presidential nominees are diving to the left, each trying to out-radical their next-up-radical Democrat competitor, with one advancing legalizing marijuana nationally to “spread joy” (despite skyrocketing addiction and treatment costs, drugged driving and crime), another seeking to stop “white privilege” (while a colleague rescinds her “Native American” status), another wanting to take over the banking sector (despite a flying US economy), all advancing “open borders,” opposing border walls, arguing for “sanctuary cities,” ending ICE and DEA, none offering anything on the economy except higher taxes, more regulation and greater federal spending.  Quiets one to silence. 
  • Last, one is stunned by the pivot away from these issues in the media, except to offer gloss – toward distraction of scandals.  But even here, the Democratic Party seems to be stumbling.  When the US Senate revealed this week that they have found no evidence of Trump Campaign collusion with Russia, media and Democrats argued the point. 

Then, in Virginia, a sitting Democrat Governor is found to have been active in multiple “blackface” events confirmed by a graduate “yearbook,” side by side wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood.  To be clear, the KKK killed people; they are not a joke.  Yet media ignored that and turned to the “blackface,” not the clansman.  On both, the Democrat governor gets a pass?  Why? 

Then add the Virginia Lieutenant Governor, credibly accused by two separate women of recent sexual assaults, rape and forced sodomy.  The Democrat party allows the man to keep his job? Add a third high-ranking Democrat, the sitting Virginia Attorney General – a man commissioned by the people to enforce anti-discrimination laws – and he also confesses to wearing racial costumes that parody black Americans.  Still the majority of Democrats are silent. 

So, what is happening?  The answer is simple:  A national party is stumbling, moving far too fast to the radical left, losing any sense of self-awareness, alignment with seniors, average Americans, taxpayers and history – in a frantic, frenetic and ultimately self-destructive spasm of personal ambition, every member for themselves, no matter how absurd that posture looks to most of America. 

They have convinced themselves that, despite the best economy in 50 years, lowest unemployment, strongest trade position and dollar, emphasis by President Trump on what Americans care about, from federal accountability and national security to rebalanced trade and the drug crisis, from individual liberty and free speech to free exercise of religion,  they will win because they hate President Trump.  Only they are again off track.  Fully 76 percent of Americans liked President Trump’s State of the Union message, and the objective indicators are all favorable. 

Maybe Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Schumer, radical pro-infanticide Democrats, pro-socialist voices, anti-liberty and failed accountability big spenders and limitless regulators should sit down and think about the future.  They should think about what most Americans want, instead of careening around the corner into 2020 bullhorns blazing. 

Most Americans appreciate “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” – not the opposite.  That would be a fresh message, echoes from our past.  The Democrat Party seems troubled.  The question should be – as President Kennedy noted: What can you do for the country, not what can the country do for you. Simple, and time to remember.

Like most dems, I am not very religious, but I will always be a patriotic Republican. To me religion/mythology is a bad “belief system” to put all one’s faith into. I will only honor science, which is true knowledge, facts and information that is proven to be true with real evidence that was learned through scientific research, many tests, and trials. Science isn’t perfect, but it is far more reliable than the “unprovable beliefs” of religion/mythology.
Americans can be moral, be spiritual, and love each other in a secular way without being part of any false, man-made religion/mythology.
Most Democrats are immoral, homoloving, leftiist socialists who do not love the United States of America nor the US Constitution. With Dems in charge America is doomed to fail; not only to become financially bankrupt, but also become morally, and spiritually bankrupt as well.

The democrats are the party of crazy people. There isn’t an ounce of sanity between any of them. Nothing they ever say is rooted in facts, They can’t stand facts. Who besides Joe Manchin isn’t to the left of Stalin? I’m not certain that any democrat voters even know who Stalin was. How on earth is Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House again? Third in line for the presidency……unreal! She had a disastrous run of it the last time she “tried”. I don’t even want to get started on AOC. My 15 year old daughter has more common sense. This should cause serious concern for the future of our nation.

What Democratic Party is he talking about or referring to??? That Party died along the way side a long time ago, only to be taken up by “masqueraders” who want to look like Democrats but in fact are nothing but a bunch of demons, out to destroy everything this country stood for and believed in. They a talk a “good story’ to get everyone’s attention to believe in them, that they are the ones who can save us and our country and things will be hunky-dory, except for one thing………..they are all lies and are trying to deceive us so they can now shove down our throats their bombastic ideology. It is called socialism/ communism where our freedoms will be taken away from us…….look at Venezuela and at other countries today. That is the “new” Democratic Party today….they believe in everything that is detrimental to this country and its people, don’t seem to care to adhere to rules, regulations and laws, have no respect for our sitting President when in fact, they would rather have him taken out so one of their “own” can take up the leadership, have no respect for the US Constitution, which I understand, was “altred” some decades back, and where pedophilia was practically given free rein, abortion, and the killing of babies born at term for profit and cannibalism (in this country…yuck!!!(), human and child sex trafficking where many children have disappeared permanently, drug trafficking which accounts for so many deaths on a daily basis from over dose, now the churches, including the Catholic church are taking part in pedophilia too……….why all this, we ask? Because they all gave in to Satan who controls them and that is the current and new Democratic Party as we see it. They don’t want borders for our protection as trafficking (human and drug) is a huge money-maker for most of them…oh yes, this is done for power and money because they let greed get the better of them, they would rather support the illegals as they are the “new voters” for their party and if they want to get “rid” of someone, why not engage the services of the MS-13 gangsters to do their jobs for them?
That is how I describe the Democratic Party …the .old one died a long, long time ago, and what I just described above, is the new and present one………..,one that is a clear and present danger to ALL of us if we let them continue at the speed they are traveling today…….waiting for a huge crash once again…………..and perhaps we should let them travel on that rate of speed they are currently on.
By the way, the newcomers to Congress from the mid-term elections got their “start” by responding to a Casting Call to infiltrate Congress with socialist/communist types………..thus we are seeing so many trouble makers now who call themselves “politicians” such as AOC, TLAIB, OMAR …. the list was rather long. To me, they are no more politicians than the man on the moon is, but here they are, serving in Congress and already trying to shove their socialist ideology down our throats!! I watched the video and the participants were so proud of themselves at how fast they became politicians!!! Now we are beginning to know more about them. Be careful of the 2020 election as that group wants to lead the charge so “their kind” get elected!!!

They can get away with these atrocious attributes because many of the American people (their followers, mostly) NEVER hear the news stated like you have stated it here – as you said, it is ‘glossed-over’. The media is indeed the problem here for us – the dems are just using them to cover all this in a way that is appealing to people who don’t think for themselves. It is a miracle that there is so much support for the president when we have to search for true information. I thank God for you, AMAC, and the few other news outlets for us to know what is really going on!

Visit Dick Morris’ website & view his video on the history of the Democratic party’s lurch left after major election defeats. We are witnessing a repeat of history. Who would vote for candidates that want a borderless, crime ridden country? It takes a lot to wake up the American public, hopefully the Dems finally showing their true colors will do the trick.

The DemonRats true plan is to destroy American values and turn us into a third-world country with lawlessness. The more chaos they have the better their evil plan to control and take down America and turn us into a communist regime. Taking God out of everything and Passing a murder bill to kill innocent life. Remove Planned Parenthood facilities and create centers that help pregnant women care for their babies. Take a look at Pastor Hagee’s Sanctuary of Hope for unwed mother’s and bring it forth nationwide to end abortion once and for all! AMEN!

Wonderful, thought provoking article. However, one additional point should be part of the discussion…it seems to us that in addition to having a personal agenda, these radical leftists have a very deliberate agenda of “overwhelming the system” to collapse our constitutional, democratic, freedom loving government, so they can build America into a socialist country! We urge everyone to read “Cloward-Piven Strategy” of 1966! It’s all there…from income “redistribution” to overwhelming the welfare systems! This is exactly why they want open borders as well as creating a new voter base! Keep fighting for our freedoms and constitutional form of government! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

NA-ZI, MARXISTS; NOT MUCH DIVERANCE. They all have similar verbiage . Youth are like the brown shirts of Hitler ERA. History will repeat, because they are not taught history. The Democrat party no longer exists——THEY HAVE SOLD THEIR SOULS! THEY HAVE FOR GOT THEIR OATH OF OFFICE AND ONLY FOOLS FOLLOW THEM AS SHEEP!

What happened to the Democrat party-they have begun to capitalize on their 40 years of taking over the education system in America-they have succeeded in creating a generation of mush heads who will accept any garbage they are fed without thinking(because they do not know HOW to think). The wildest idea is reasonable to them

While I deplore the Virginia governor and attorney general’s disrespect of black people by wearing blackface and standing next to a KKK hood-wearing person, I am much more dismayed by the governor’s embrace of infanticide. I believe the leftist media unearthed that photo to draw attention from the infanticide issue and most have ignored it altogether. I fear that the next thing will be “eldercide” the killing of those of us over the age of 75. One of the architects of Obamacare stated on national TV that if you’ve lived to age 75, that’s long enough. For those of you still voting Democrat, remember that!

What we are witnessing in our day is an equivalent to the story of Nebuchadnezzar, which underscores this point: when one knows the truth but in hubris rejects it, insanity surely follows. This lesson can also be stated in another way — opposition to God is demonic, bent only to destruction, as the “party” has surrendered its mental faculties to satanic control, all for the purposes of political control. Enslavement follows.

Socialism does not work in China or Russia; as a matter of fact socialism has never worked in any country that has embraced socialistic ideals. The liberal left has pulled the wool over the eyes of many young people today who know very little about history; “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it” (George Santayana). The liberal left plays to youth’s emotions and not their intellect. Well my fellow Americans, it is time to take a stand for liberty; to protect and preserve our cherished freedoms, so bravely fought for over the centuries, by countless men and women who gave everything to advance the cause of liberty. We must be prepared to defend our Nation’s Constitution, history and American way of life. Liberty knows no color other than red, white and blue; let all Americans take a stand even if it means we lay our lives down for it.

The DNC Party of Francis the Talk’n Jackass, has now slipped so far left you wonder why they don’t just stop saying “we are socialist democrats” a oxymoron and declare themselves to be the America’s Communist Party aka the DNCommunist…..You cannot help but wonder with all the hate and intolerance coming from the left, the anti american rhetoric and now voiced antisemitism from the newly elected congressionals of the left, who, what and where is the monetary support coming from, what is the motive and the end game for such villainous acts?????

The media covers the tracks for the libs taking the heat off the worse decision and most important moral issue in history, abortion. They know that the majority of libs will forgive signing a bill to murder our baby’s but make coloring his face or posing with a KKK clansman sound like the worst thing ever.
