You are talking like the "butthurt libs" you talk about during 2016.. Pretty hillarious IMO

A few things we know-


1. the dems will continue moving further and further to the left


2. there will be more dem politicians, like AOC, who will promote far left agendas


3. demographically, with more illegals pouring in, there will be more dem politicians


4. as evidenced by Obama, the dems do not vet their candidates well


5. dems completely ignore the faults and quality of their candidates, and will vote for whoever is the dem candidate


Look for more and more loony dem politicians in the future. There will be more politicians like AOC in the future and, unfortunately, very few Jeffersons.

She will end up as a talking head on CNN. Mark my words.

That's what the right wing news is hung up on. That's what they WANT you to believe.

She's a freshman. Did you worry about freshmen in High School?

The Democratic Party would have to give up the Wall Street and big pharma and insurance gravy train for that to happen. The economic forces she is up against is simply formidable. Remember, the DNC and the GOP have the same big money donors. They're far more comfortable with each other than someone who does not take bribe money from Wall Street, big oil and big pharma.

Well Bob, if you did in fact send it to her, I think she might be aware of the problem, but not know how to deal with it.

The once respectable Democratic party had appeal to many different people within our country, hence the reason they are part of the two party lock our country has.
Frankly leaders like Pelosi & Reid mucked up the works as they did all sorts of things previous leaders never would have considered.
That combined with a tact very left during the Obama days has also turned many people off. Now with most of the (D) candidates for the presidential nomination being even more leftist than just a decade ago, AOC is just a symptom of the problem.
Sure she gets a ton of airtime, but there are forces within and around the Democrats which are helping to destroy the party.

The irony is that despite wanting to see Trump defeated, the moderates within the party should actually hope Trump not only beats the (D) nominee, but trounces them.
That way it will be much easier for the moderates to say the socialist/communist insanity needs to come to an end, and they need to get back to old school pragmatism.
