There are 11 Jewish Senators (10 Democrats 1 Independent) and 19 Jewish Representatives (18 Democratic 1 Republicans). When one party constantly nominates fellow Jews for high political office and the other doesn't which party do you think Jews will choose?

So you think that jews don't care about policy, but only about ethnicity?

Do you only care about ethnicity, and not policy, when you vote?

The one that offers better solutions for America's problems.

Jews support minority rights. They are painfully aware of the importance. Republicans do not.

That is an insane statement. There were Jews in Europe before there were any Christians there. In fact, before Christianity even existed. Most Jews consider themselves to be white. What are they supposed to consider themselves? Black? Asian? What race do you consider them to be?

You guys must not know many Jews. Being Jewish myself and living in a Jewish part of the country, I am surrounded by them, and never do I hear anti-Christian sentiment. Most of us have relatives that are Christian, and all of us have many friends that are Christian, and we don't love them any less than our Jewish relatives and friends. The difference in our religions is a non-issue.

Don't worry about them. They are bitter people who's only hope is to put the blame for their own political failings on other people. The party of personal responsibility, huh, but everybody else is to blame.

It is important to remember that the Democratic Party hasn't actually morphed into anything, at least not deliberately. Rather, the Republican Party has - it has been co-opted by self-centered greed-mongers and others who seek to venerate callous disregard for others. Traditional Republicans, who perhaps represent most of the party, are tagged as RINOs or worse. This ideological cleansing of the leadership of the party very effectively has tilted the party to the right. That sharp turn to the right by the GOP has left a vacuum in the center, a vacuum that has drawn the Democrats to the center. Instead of repelling comparatively moderate Jews, this attracts them.

The right/left dichotomy isn't really conservative/liberal anymore anyway. Rather, the big difference is with regard to who government benefits. For the right, the government is intended to bolster and foster the fortunes of those with financial power. For the left, the government is intended to bolster and foster the fortunes of the unfortunate. Many Jews, even affluent Jews, still remember stories of how government behaves when it is aligned against the unfortunate, and recognize that that a similar evil can only be forestalled by standing up to the concentration of financial power. They identify with the poor as a reflection of their long heritage of being among the downtrodden, even when it is not to their personal benefit.

What color is the sky in your world?

The TRUTH is, BOTH Parties have shifted LEFT.

The Democrat Party is now promoting the very COMMUNIST PARTY PLATFORM

Today's ESTABLISHMENT Republican is about where the Democrat Party was in 1970. They keep pushing these RINOS like Dole, McCain, Bush, Christie, Huckabee etc on the Base. The base sits out the election because a large percentage refuse to vote for Democrat Lite, so we get an Obama or a Clinton.

The Republican base has watched their Party Leaders compromise their principles and move left on social and economic issues. THOSE are the "Independents" waiting for a Reagan to appear.

You do know white liberals are anti-white, and yes, white liberals are white. They excuse violence by minorities against whites. They give preferences to minorities over more qualified whites. They support "reparations" even more than the average black American. They support social issues against their Christian cultural heritage. It goes on and on and on and we see it daily in the posts here.

I realize you feel compelled to make up silly nonsense and dupe yourself into believing it, but it doesn't change the reality. And using words, like "communist", either for which you don't understand the meaning or for which you deliberately feign ignorance, actually turns your vacuous comment into one that is ridiculous - literally "worthy of ridicule".

Actually, today's Republican Party is advocating policies reminiscent of the Harding administration of the 1920s. Today's Democrat Party is advocating policies reminiscent of the Republicans of the 1970s. That's why many 1970s Republicans are now Democrats - including a lot of Jews. But if you're hell-bent on denying reality, you of course won't admit that.
