I will not lie…there are a few Dem candidates that I like or would support by as far as the DNC goes I dislike it on so many levels…I decades I have been saying the Dems for the most part are cowards and spineless and the election for 2020 is bringing this to the forefront…..
How do I hate thee? Counting the ways would be a fool’s errand; there are too many ways.
They have to do with your hypocrisy, cowardice, and servility. Circumstances change, but these traits have been constant themes in Democratic Party politics seemingly from time immemorial.
They have become particularly salient since the late seventies, when the party began to make neoliberal ideology its watchword, effectively shedding its left flank. Although Bill and Hillary were late on the scene, I call the phenomenon the party’s Clintonite turn. They were the ones who consummated the deal.
Since deeply entrenched institutional arrangements militate against third parties, the “love it or leave it” option” is basically a non-starter for anyone aspiring to create an authentic, non-marginalized Left opposition, much less actually to empower one. For now and the foreseeable future, it is the Democratic Party or zilch.
Sadly in the Age of Trump the saga is elect a Dem NO matter who…..no matter how cowardly they are or spineless…..
Elementary logic seems to demonstrate that self deception should be impossible. Deceiving others is not comparably paradoxical. When A deceives B, A causes B to believe what A believes to be false. Happens all the time. But how can anyone deceive herself, i.e. make herself believe (to be true) what she in fact believes to be false? She’d have to be both deceived and not deceived at the same time. Yet this too happens all the time. How is it possible?
I do not agree….yes I want Trump in the rear view mirror but at what cost?
The whole “electability” is a con job that is spread by the MSM….it is there way to help control the candidates and the message offered to the voter…..https://lobotero.com/2019/07/16/electability-the-lie-that-keeps-on-giving/
The issues are not so important but how the candidates stack up in a poll is….that is the main message that the networks gives the voter
The voter should not have to hold their nose and vote as they did in 2016….and we see how that worked out for the nation, huh?
