There is a division within the Democratic Party. There are the moderate, even centrist Democrats while there is the new, ultraliberal, even leftist Democrats. Of course, there is the non-extreme liberal Democrats. To the former, has the Democratic Party become more extreme in its ideology & its goals for America? Do you feel that contenders such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & Bernie Sanders are radicalizing the party? To the latter, do you feel that the Democratic Party is too establishment & need those like Ocasio-Cortez & Sanders to return the party to its purity? Do you feel that the Democratic Party must by any means necessary accomplish total equality in America? To those who are traditional liberals, has the Democratic Party lost its mind?
"Has the Democratic Party become more extreme in its ideology & its goals for America? No, the party is as traditional as ever, as evidenced by the DNC changing the rules so billionaire Bloomberg could participate in debates.
"Do you feel that contenders such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & Bernie Sanders are radicalizing the party? To the latter, do you feel that the Democratic Party is too establishment & need those like Ocasio-Cortez & Sanders to return the party to its purity?" First, AOC is not a contender. Bernie is an Independent running in the Democratic primary so, yes, he is a contender. The party is simply being challenged by people-driven politics and would be wise to learn a lesson from the Hillary fiadco. Let the Democratic primary voters choose the candidate they want, the one they can trust and enthusiastically support. The Democratic party has always been a big tent and does not need a purity test.
"Do you feel that the Democratic Party must by any means necessary accomplish total equality in America? To those who are traditional liberals, has the Democratic Party lost its mind?" No and No, with a roll of the eyes at the nature of the questions.

It is an example of the hypocrisy of the left. They believe they protect black people, except for black conservatives. I know black conservatives who have been lectured by white, female, liberals about being black. If a white liberal says anything racist about a black...

A serious question, posed more to those who identify as Democrats. I would really like to know who you believe will come forth with a message of unification, prosperity, and a positive outlook toward the future... someone mainstream Americans could believe in.

The Ds lost their fourth special election. Some say those are Big Wins for Rs and Disaster for Ds. Other optimistic souls say each was a Win for Ds because they were close. While I tend to agree with the last statement, I won't go so far as calling it a win. Instead, I call...
