After what we have come to know after the last 5 years I’d be so embarrassed to say out loud Today I was associated in anyway with the Democrats or their party as a whole.
It’s called elementary school. Work on punctuation, dumb shit.

I reached the same conclusion as an 18 year old when I registered to vote for the first time. That was 33 years ago.
They supported the killing of unborn babies from the very start after row v Wade. I could never abide an organization that did that. They were also the party that seemed to always find fault with/criticize the military. They were always for more and more taxes.
That’s a short list. Hundreds of additional things.
Me, too. But I’d be even more embarrassed (actually, ashamed) to be a Trump supporter.
Trump but Trump elicits no pride in many republicans either
Well, the Democratic Party seems to be headed to the far left and I find that worrying. Cortes, Omar, Tlaib, Sanders, Warren, Yang, Booker, O’Rourke all seem to be “out lefting” each other. When Omar endorsed Sanders by saying he would “end western imperialism”, I was horrified. So were my parents. That was the kind of rhetoric you got from Lenin, Stalin and Khrushchev. You don’t even get that type of crap from Putin really. I’m not American nor am I a refugee but I would think Omar would be a bit fond of having a country like the US to live in and not some hell hole like Somalia. However, that mindset seems to be the prevailing one.
The Republican Party is split. Many are not big Trump supporters because he has the verbal IQ of a 12 year old and an out of control ego. Many Republicans who support him seem to do so for lack of a better candidate.
I’m also disappointed with the bias of all media outlets.
Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden did not initially run on an extreme left wing agenda but they seem to be embracing it now. It’s about power with many in both parties.
I’ve never seen a worse loser than Hillary Clinton or a worse winner than Donald Trump.
Personally, the US is and has always been an exceptional place. You can scream for open borders, border walls, tougher sentencing, lighter sentencing, strong military, not so strong military or whatever you want but I always thought both sides wanted what was best for the country. Either things have changed or my knowledge of it has because I don’t think everyone feels that way. Few do much but tear down the other side, vow to trample the constitution in subtle or even not so subtle ways and end America as the great place it is.
I’m beginning to decide that in many ways, both parties are as crooked as they claim the other party is. At least on the national level. I live in Illinois, the cesspool of American politics but on a local level, our democrats and republicans work together quite well. They do have differences but compromises can be reached. My city has two large universities, two junior colleges and great elementary, Jr High and high schools. When the synagogue in Pittsburg was attacked, we had a service to honor the victims and we were over flowing. I saw republican and Democratic lawmakers there. None campaigning. Same with the mosque attack in New Zealand.
This is what most Americans are like. They are common sense people with compassion, no matter their party. Somehow, what is happening at the national level, does not seem to me to reflect the Americans I know or have met.
They are a dismal disgrace
Are you upset with Republicans blocking any primary challengers against Trump?
I have never been a Democrat but honestly this is the first time I have ever seen any fight from them. They are at their best now. The negative stuff is just hyperbole from Fox News. It's not real.
If bigotry and authoritarianism is your thing then Republicans are definitely for you.
The programming has been very effective on you. Must be especially easy to fool people who couldn’t even pass a high school English class.
Truth matters ... well said ! The run on sentence was for effect and I think it worked well :). A certain group is being programmed but it’s not the group who is against censorship and for free speech :). Which group do you fall into ?
The question was for that
“The stupidity is for effect!” - Republicans 2020
All political parties are a anathema to our Nation, as I’ve stated before, George Washington detested them & stated their dangers & excesses, which are being acted out to our Nation’s detriment❗️God help us all‼️
Classic case of projection here. Thankfully ReTHUGlicans took another beating yesterday as the BLUE TSUNAMI keeps on rolling!
Stop pretending it’s only the dems. People like you are why I left the R party and have an I next to my name.
These kinds of people are incapable of rational thinking. This is why I hardly engage with them.
The Democratic party is far from perfect, but do you not find the Republican party even more embracing?
Clearly he doesn’t. His other posts are very partisan.
No - I find both parties distasteful, but I actually loathe the Democratic Party (not it’s people, but the institution and elites and the socialists that makes it up) far more. This is why I want the two party system dismantled.....
Con, agree with two party being dismantled.
Advocate instant runoff voting. It’s the only chance for others parties to viable.
Wow - that is interesting, never heard of this, on initial glance, yes I would agree.......must do more research on this. Thanks @thatguy2.
That’s a biased opinion.
Isn’t any opinion bias?
My opinion is the democrats are the worst (deceitful, preposterous, hypocritical liars). The republicans are chickenshits, and the two party system is ridiculous.....
IMO, that is not bias....that’s fact. :p 🧐🤪
I phrased it incorrectly but yes, you are correct. In other words, truth can’t acknowledge the flaws on the right in the same vein as the flaws on the left.
I actually am disgusted with both sides so there’s that.
I actually don’t think she was putting forward an attitude. She in a round about way was agreeing with you.... :p
crayon, I understand what you meant - I was just poking fun at your bias opinion comment. No ill will was meant at all.
I know you were Con. And you should really check the way you read comments on here, truth. If you thought that was attitude, I’d hate to see what you’d think about real attitude.
Same way I feel about Republicans. Now an independent.
You should do the insidewith.com quiz. Maybe you can find a new home - I line up (86%) Libertarians, and 61% GOP....good info there.
I’ve done it but not in awhile. I’ll check it out today.
I came up 66% libertarian, lean more conservative and would vote for Biden...
Ironically I came up at 78% constitutionalists- they are just such a small party and I actually disagree with their social policies, especially homosexual/trans positions.....while I find those decisions strange, and don’t agree with them on a moral level, I support their right to make those decisions and would never attempt to infringe or disparage them.
Otherwise I would be in alignment with them. :p
The Demonrat Party is a cancer on this country.
I was a former Democrat too in my 20s.....I even voted for Obama in 08.......but not in 12 if that tells you how quickly things changed for me.
I think they believe they are, but the destabilization of our economy just to “level the field” will be disastrous for Americans. Our country used to stand for hard working Eric’s, now we want to just say - “everyone is equal and should all be equal” - equally screwed over if the Democrats take over.....I actually want both parties to be dismantled, I think there is room for all parties....
