Democratic Party viewed by the Underclass
September 29, 2010
When I saw the struggle inside the Democratic Party to promote the democrat’s agenda I didn’t understand, but I think I understand now. The tea party supports the conservative agenda of the Republican Party, there are no liberal republican votes supporting liberal causes. There are too many (blue dogs and yellow dogs), conservatives in the Democratic Party. The conservative agenda is promoted inside the Democratic Party. The liberal agenda is often compromised by the internal conflicts. The republican policy concerning liberal republicans is to watch the vote. If it’s conservative it doesn’t matter if you are republican or democrat. If the vote is for a liberal cause the tea party or Republican Party will disregard and dismiss the law maker.
It seems the Democratic Party is very afraid of the word liberal. Somehow In the last decade the Republican Party has defined the democrat’s core value as un-American and a waste of time and money. The strange thing about that is democrats have drunk the cool-aid. I understand to be liberal, you must care about and for the majority of Americans who aren’t in that 2% liberal policies will tax. There are many positive things liberals do and have done for the upper class, middle class, low class, and the underclass which is the majority class these days. The republican’s core values include tax breaks for the rich, big business, and Wall Street. Conservatives want to end social entitlements and continue corporate entitlements.
The American people whether they know it or not should embrace liberalism for their own sake. Conservatism is not in the majority’s interest. Democrats should proudly proclaim the value of their brand. You are either for the people or against the people. The democrats should deal with the dogs, blue, and yellow. Republicans don’t allow dogs in their party. The Democratic Party is inclusive to a fault; the republicans are exclusive to a fault. Independents are fragmented and powerless but very important to both parties this election. The Democratic Party should stand tall and not fall over itself.
