Dems move far to the left of Obama
https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/06/d...ion-class/

"One indicator of progressive hatred of Donald Trump that deserves more contemplation is this: The Democratic party is moving left with breathtaking velocity. Not only is it far to the left of Bill Clinton, it’s well to the left of even Barack Obama. Two and a half years before the next presidential election, with a wide-open race to be the party’s standard-bearer against President Trump, there’s no telling how far left the contenders for the nomination will have to move to enthuse the most ardent party members. Trump’s reelection campaign may well center on positioning him as reasonable and moderate. The Democrats appear intent on helping him do that.

Consider a new Gallup poll this week that revealed that party members no longer even concede that the existence of rich people is a good thing. The poll question was, “Do you think the United States benefits from having a class of rich people, or not?” Only 43 percent of Democrats said yes, as opposed to 81 percent of Republicans and 57 percent of independents. As recently as 2012, shortly after the 2011 Occupy Wall Street movement drew rapturous media coverage, 52 percent of Democrats agreed it’s a good thing to have rich people in this country...."

Yes, we are dangerously swing on a pendulum of Nationalists to Progressive to ???

If the GOP hangs on it will come down to Gerrymandering and the abandonment of the middle by both parties. The move toward radical Progressives is stupid for the Dems because a 60% majority is possible, given the impact Trump has had on GOP membership. Check out what has happened to party identification:

The Democrat party is now dominated by Ecosocial justice warriors. The question is how long will the moderates tolerate this?

Prove them wrong and better yet.......
Convince them to vote otherwise.

Only President Trump can get the lefties to vote for him. They will never vote local right.

That's because dims know that government creates jobs, not rich people.

You didn't build that.

Posters here have asked when a third party candidate will win the White House. I tell them that may have happened in 2016.

Obama always was a far left progressive as was his mom. He didn’t fully reveal his beliefs, as that would have made him unelectable. The Demos are just sliding further into his personal preferences that he never revealed.

All the Demos and a good % of the Republicans are actually globalists that would vote in the Illuminati. Trump was nearly the sole alternative.
