They espouse Socialist principles therefore should be called socialists.

I think these two parties are too well entrenched to change. Instead, it would seem more likely to me that a splinter group would split off maybe under another name. Thatís by far an easier path.

I would like to see dozens of VIABLE parties in the USA so I can choose. Right now I feel neither the Republican or Democratic party represents me. I'm a White working-class man. The Democratic party has thrown my race and gender under the bus and Republicans are hell bent on making sure I work for peanuts, have no health care, and compete with Chinese labor (Trump being an exception and a nonOrthodox Republican).

Would love if there was a party that represented working class people in this country that did not pander to minorities - or a party that represented white working class people. I'd take either.

I vote 'no'.

It seems reasonably obvious that the Democratic party isn't really a party but is a coalition of self-interested groups.

It isn't like a bloc of urban white professionals really shares much in the way of political philosophy with the La Raza folks, it's more a matter of wresting control from the a monolithic US Ancien Rťgime.

Watching the debates and news coverage proves Democrats are no longer welcome in the party because they donít believe in socialist ideas... thatís why they may as well change the name.

The only problem with that is that one's true and one's false. Democrats are socialists. Republicans are not racists.


But, what's another lie on top of the 100,000,000 liberals have already told?

Socialism and Democracy are incompatible. Those who call themselves Democratic Socialists are full of crap. It's like calling Obamacare affordable.


Funny how all the candidates, save Biden and Gabbard, are now bashing Obama and Obamacare, eh?

They are too dishonest to call their party exactly what they are by name.



As it is they falsely named themselves "Democrats".

I know this forum is pretty evenly split, so it’s interesting to me that the majority think they should change their party’s name. I feel bad the media has left them and are only adopting the socialists.
