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
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.
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.
People you need to wake up fast. After the blow out in Virginia's election it proves Racism is DEAD! This president needs to resign and he and his administration has to move on from attacking Trump and his family. This is all about tearing apart Trumps great work and the HATE from the left to hurt him for 2022. Biden lied the day he took his oath on Unity. The Biden camp only knows how to laugh and it's insane to hear.
Agreed. Just trying to show the Democrats have drifted over the past 25 years farther left off their values than the Republicans have.
That's making the "UGE" assumption that Republicans still have any values, which I think is very disputable!
