New thread, because I can't see where to put it without getting drowned by noise.
New report by PEW, Partisan divides over political values widen

It is a long, long read, I've only read 1st page (with interruptions), and not sure I fully understand it yet.

You mean the current state of affairs in the world and politics is causing a divide? I'm shocked! [/sarcasm]

Seriously though I remember reading somewhere along the way that the election of someone swinging as right as Trump, would lead to a political climate in which more and more extreme politicians would be ran against each other (and elected). This is because each side will fear a loss by not appealing enough to their base...

And here we are. IF the democratic party wishes to win back enough of their base to secure a victory, they will be relying on a platform that rallies liberals like never before...
This of course will cause the pendulum to swing even further...

Aren't we all so glad Trump was elected?

Personally I'd rather be back in the days of Bush II, and I do NOT say that lightly.



.... Big ol extremist YAP.

Please read the entire post. It is to the Subject.

The Democrat Party's road to victory. Has been the Non Liberal, Non Academic, Working Class. Which they have abandoned, and they now stand for nothing, execpting negatives and name calling.

What are their proposals to stop the 19th century type Global Capitalists hemorrhaging of good paying working class jobs to... None.

What are their proposals to revisit, or even eliminate corrupt Anti American Worker Trade Agreements. Which only result in the elimination of American Businesses and Employment. None.

Trump is not the cause of our Nation's or Democrat Party problems. But only an historical reaction prior to the realignment of our Political Party's and sometimes a collapse of a Party. As had happened a few times in our history.

US politics changing? Always has. Always will be.
