The Democratic Party's Hiatus From Reality

    After getting trounced (at least with respect to history and mid-term elections), the democrats don't have the nads to address their real problems. The first of which is lack of a platform. Instead, they intend to retain the services of Terry McAuliffe.
    That statement should bear particular scrutiny as a number of Georgia democrats switched parties after being elected this round.

    In this last election, the democrats only platform, if you will, was to oppose the republican platform. People, it would seem are wising up...that stuff just doesn't play so well anymore. To that end, what do they stand for? If they're retaining Clinton's hand picked Chairman and promoting, for lack of a better term, a socialist leaning latte liberal to the minority leadership is any indication; it would seem they intend to continue their aimless meander down the path of nondescript polarization and further out of touch with the mainstream of American thought.

    One question. What issues do Democrats stand for, and why are they not addressing them?

    Ok, it was one question but with two parts. :)

    I have no clue what my party stands for at the moment. I'm thinking of going green because they at least are able to figure out what they stand for;). I think that right now the democratic party isn't sure as to what they stand for. Should they move to the center? Should they move farther left? Should they continue to argue the economy?

    I'll tell you one thing that the Green Party IS for - Slavery Reparations! I will not support any group that wants to take more of my money and give it to someone whose great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather was possibly maybe treated poorly by my great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather. Honestly, I feel that this reparations nonsense is going to fuel a very nasty backlash.

    Slavery reparations. Normally I wouldn't think so bad, but that was years ago, and I don't know any slaves alive to recieve these reparations. We need to put the past behind us and move forward.
