They should just be honest and make this change . The Democratic Party today looks nothing like the Democratic Party of the past . They should just be honest and call themselves the New American Socialist Party or something like that .

All agreed ?

If Bill Clinton was running for office today he’d be viewed as “far right “ by Dems today .

It is surprising the Democratic Party hasn't changed its name given it wants to take down all the Confederate monuments and those people were Democrats.

The Democratic Party was the party of slavery, lynching, segregation, KKK, Jim Crow, etc so why would they want to continue to use that name.

A third party is needed now more than it ever was. On one hand you have the Socialist/Communist democrat party, and on the other you have the open-borders republican party - a tool of the ultra wealthy. Trump's election was a good start in giving the establishment a punch in the mouth, and we need to continue it. Howard Schultz might be the guy.

Bill Clinton was a socialist too. He pushed socialized medicine.

I say we change the name to one of these.

1. The "We the People" and "Happiness of the People and General Welfare" party.
or
2. The "We'd like to fruits of prosperity and to pay the bills" party.

Which do you think is better?

I recommend going with the Abortion Party or High Tax Party.

Wow, so hiring the guy who has used immigrant labor for decades to do most everything...shakes up the establishments that also does the same? Heck, the newest story is about an entire NJ town populated by his "imports" to build and maintain one GolF Club.....they flew in the labor and paid heavy equipment operators $8 an hour instead of the going rate of $40+.
They all knew they had no papers - heck, the immigrants told their bosses. This went on until the present day.....national security was involved as the Golf Club withheld the names of the illegals when the Secret Service asked for lists to vet.

MAGA.

Sooner or later I hope many figure out this very basic fact. If you have a surgeon that you think is not quite up to par you don't "fix it" by bringing in a ditch digger to "shake things up" . You especially can't fix it by bringing in a Witch Doctor (which Trump may represent) that knows nothing about how to do the job.

It's very easy to destroy things. I'll give you that. But rebuilding them is much harder. No comparison. And I speak as someone who did both demolition and construction.

When conservatives change their motto to 'Happily spending like drunken sailors and growing government when it suits our agenda'.
