The Democratic Party is the party of moral degenerates, freeloaders, and privilege-seeking minority bigots.
One might say, "That's good, because Republicans will get elected," I say it's bad because anyone with half a brain no longer has a choice of parties. We'd be better off with two viable parties and an intelligent electorate.
You are right about that. Unfortunately, by and large the Republicans really are Democrats Lite. Voting for the Republicans means that this nation just won't go to hell quite as fast.
It's sad, but the truth is that the country as a whole has swung so far left that a Conservative could not be elected president. I doubt Ronald Reagan's platform could win today.
