I assume this guy uses Marx to define “center”.
Another example of why we need closed primaries.
First and foremost, the delusion that destroying the GOPe would somehow make a more centralist party. Absolute utter fantasy - those who are bent towards a ‘more inclusive’ world by dictating every aspect of life by government are usually attracted by the Democrat party to begin with.
If their goal would be to ‘break gridlock’ by making a more accommodating Republican party, then they should be standing behind Rubio. He certainly represents the appeasement branch of the party.
Let’s be truthful; Trump’s effect in dismantling the GOPe only comes into play if he has not only the majority of delegates, but also wins. Because it is not just the faces of the GOPe that need to be countered, but all of their relatives embedded in all levels of government or working as lobbyists.
What would follow would be a far more centralist to right party (vs the left leaning populist party that exists today.) Of course, I don’t expect anyone who is so delusional as to describe Democrats as centralist and Republicans as far right to recognize this.
The democrat party stopped being a centrist party a long time ago, they aren’t even a center left party, they are a extreme left party, not much different than Bernie Sanders. The republican party, thanks to the infestation of neo-con artists has been pushed to be a center left party in practice, but a center right party only in words.
The author is obviously insane. Obama was voted the most liberal Senator by the National Journal in '07, and Kerry received that same honor back in '03. And oh yeah, those two just happen to be the last two Democrat nominees for President.
Fast forward to the Dems' 2016 candidates, Bernie and Hillary. They're about as "centrist" as Trotsky and Lenin.
This is pure trash.
Exibit A why GOPee is so messed up.
Come on. It’s hard to get more centrist than Bernie.
So, does having one of two Democratic candidates as a declared socialist that honeymooned in the USSR qualify as being center-left?
“centrist Democratic Party “
Yes, central government control of everything in the country.
“Unfortunately, what we have is a centrist Democratic Party and a far-right Republican Party. Therefore, the system is out of balance, creating gridlock even as the public cries out for action on serious problems such as our deteriorating public infrastructure, epitomized by that in Flint, Michigan. I believe that Republicans made a deal with the devil in 2009 when they embraced the Tea Party”
Deal with the Devil? How about the hail-Satan left with its abortion and sodomy sacraments?
Anyone who perceives the Democrat party as centrist is living so far out of touch with reality, we can not possibly ever reach any kind of understanding apart from armed conflict.
Those who want a socialist or communist, anti-Christian society MUST either be willing to grant conservatives an amicable divorce so we can go our separate ways, or we MUST go to war with one another.
It really us that simple.
Too much acid?
Socialism/Marxism is centrist for this delusional useful tool.
What we have is an ultra-left DNC and a clueless GOP
Now you really have to be delusional or ignorant to believe that.
What we have is a far left Democrat party and a liberal Republican elite running the show.
Except that that never happened:

George Bush Says Tea Party Suffers From Nativism
Bush: Whats interesting about our country, if you study history, is that there are some isms that occasionally pop up - pop up. One is isolationism and its evil twin protectionism and its evil triplet nativism. . .
I stopped reading at this point. Reefer madness.
What we actually have is a far left, progressive liberal Democratic party that has an out and out, openly socialist candidate, and a (in the closet) Marxist candidate running for the DNC.
If this guy thinks that is "centrist," he must be smoking some awful powerful weed (hence the "reefer madness"). And that may well be because they think that sort of thing is just "peachy" as well.
Bruce Bartlett, former Treasury official...maybe his delusional observations helped him to become a former government employee.
