Re: Halloween Celebrations Canceled in Melrose Schools

Ugh - I was a (Bill) Clinton Democrat. For your information, and apologizing for not being able to present it in HTML, I present the 1996 Democratic Party platform

https://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/documents/1996-democratic-party-platform

Its prime tenet \"Opportunity. Responsibility. Community. These are the values that made America strong. These are the values of the Democratic Party. These are the values that must guide us into the future\"

These concepts are anathema to today\'s statist, woke-racist progressive wing. However, that was the center in 1996 and remains the center today

Now for the 1996 Republican Party Platform, with the same apology for plain text.

https://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/documents/republican-party-platform-1996

It\'s prime tenet: \"This is what we want for America: real prosperity that reaches beyond the stock market to every family, small business and worker. An economy expanding as fast as American enterprise and creativity will carry it, free from unnecessary taxes, regulation and litigation. This is what we want for America: the restoration of self-government by breaking Washington\'s monopoly on power. The American people want their country back. We will help them to regain it.\"

Now, honestly, which party has moved farther off their 1996 platforms - Republican or Democrat?

Please stop tossing terms like facist, privilege, racism, systemic, etc. around like confetti. You sound like you just got back from Camp Mao. While I\'m sure these words play well in the denunciation sessions you and your insular bubble love so much, they\'re slogans not facts.

If the Democrats continue to let their religiously woke progressive wing dictate their political philosophy, the Trumpists will win again in \'22 and \'24. I assure you, I don\'t want that but if it should happen it will be posters like those above that allow it to happen.
Who cares if you worked on the Clintons platform. He and his wife are the ones that started the Russian spying. Thanks to the Durham report coming out and more to come!!!

Re: Halloween Celebrations Canceled in Melrose Schools

Agreed. Just trying to show the Democrats have drifted over the past 25 years farther left off their values than the Republicans have.

Show the all have drifted over the past 2 years farther left off their values.

Re: Halloween Celebrations Canceled in Melrose Schools

That's making the "UGE" assumption that Republicans still have any values, which I think is very disputable!
