  • The Democrats self destruction begins

    Ocasio-Cortez, other extremist Dems look to purge party of moderates.
    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opini...tes/ar-BBUo14O

    As I have stated in other posts, Trump has sent the Democrat Party into a race for the extreme left. They are abandoning all common sense in their stampede, with the likes of AOC demanding a purge of any centrist and moderates, Southern Democrats will have no choice but to join the Republican Party or have no representation at all. As polarizing as Trump has been to the nation, OAC is purposefully dismantling the Democrats at a time when they are his most potent opposition.
    In spite of Trumpís abruptness and his love affair with twitter, the approaching death spiral cage fight going into the Democratic Primary race will pit ultra-leftist, socialist activist bordering on outright communist against the traditional Democratic Party members who have been holding their own by appeasement of those radical forces since 1968.
    It is very likely that the next General Election and the Democratic Convention will be as tumultuous as that sad affair.
    Dispite our best intentions, the system is dysfunctional that intelligence failure is guaranteed.

        President Trump is not the reason for the new highly vocal left wing of the Democratic Party. He is just a convenient target for their fury.

        It has more to do with the demographic shifts in the U.S. population and 50 years of leftist dominance of the media and higher education.

        Today the leading Democrat to get the Democratic Party's nomination for president in 2020 is a man who hasn't even entered the race, Vice President Joe Biden. He is seen as slightly left of center. A great campaign strategy for him or other moderates would be to be seen as the voice of reason in the party against the loony left. Let the 19 hard leftist split the vote of that wing of the party and have the center take the nomination.

        The majority of the Democrats I know are not on board with the far lefts program. It will be interesting to watch the fight in the Democratic Party to see which vision wins out. The leftist of that party are the most visible and vocal. Will they take control of the Democratic Party? Or will the more moderate wing of the party take control ? Neither group seems thrilled with Speaker Pelosi.

          The question is who's party is it, the leftist or the moderates.

            I think what you will see is the Democrat party lurch Left more and more. At the same time, they'll lose voter registration numbers and independents will increase. That is, the moderates in the Democrat party will quit and become independents instead of register as Republicans.
            What will really stick in the Democrat's craws will be their inability to win elections outside Leftist strongholds. Their response will be where they do win to enact laws and policies that will allow them to win even when they get a minority of the vote. One of the current movements they have to do this is to change individual state electoral college vote distribution to give those state's votes to the candidate with the most popular votes nationwide. This is a direct attempt to remove state power and concentrate it at the federal level while moving the presidential election towards a straight popular vote.
            Where this will get ugly with them is that a Republican presidential candidate gets the majority of the popular vote and all these states have to suddenly vote for that candidate instead of the Leftist one they expected to get those votes...

              That is reasonable question, the Southern Democrats will have a hard time following the likes of AOC.

                  Your former ambassador here expressed the same opinion, with Beto O'Rourke as an outsider.

                  The ACG is notoriously bad at predicting US elections If everyone here is convinced Trump will win easily, I'm inclined to bet against him.

                  I vividly remember thread after thread telling me Obama couldn't be re-elected, or how anyone but Trump would win the republican nomination

                    The predictions regarding trump were perfectly in line with all the experts and all the leaders in the dem party (and media).
                    So we should be considered experts too.


                    Back to the DNC, if the GOP were having half the problems the dems are right now, we would be seeing constant reports of how the GOP is having a civil war or falling apart.
                    I have yet to see any reports on the power struggles going on with the dems.
                    They werenít even able to pass a resolution that anti-semitism is bad the other day.

                    I would agree that the dems are making trumpís chances better by the rush to the far left.
                    Just as in the last election it seems the dems are desperate to beat themselves.
                    Donít forget, my predictions are every bit as good as the experts.

                          I cannot fail to notice you don't actually make any predictions there - which is smart, much too early

                          But just for fun, do you think Biden would stand a chance against Trump ? Or O'Rourke for that matter ?

                            This is just off the top of my head but Joe Biden IMO would have the best chance over Trump for some of the following:
                            He's familiar.
                            He's perceived as being down -to-earth.
                            He's perceived as a long-time moderate with deep ties to the Beltway elite.
                            He's not Donald Trump.

                              The only prediction I made in 2016 was my belief that Hillary would be her own worst enemy and that the more people see her, the less they like her. That said, I still thought she would win.


                              I think Biden could beat Trump, Beto probably not.
                              Unfortunately for the dems, they now seem to think that Biden is insufficiently liberal and too old and white.

                              Given the way things are going for the dems, I don't think Biden will be their guy, even though he would probably have a good chance at winning. Despite his frequent creepiness with women and girls.
