    In recent decades, the Democratic Party has become increasingly leftist.  Examples of these are the decriminalization of marijuana, lax rules regarding criminals-there are no jail time for petty crimes, & the proliferation of illegal immigrants to the United States among other things.   America is being destroyed in increments.   What are YOUR thoughts?

      Americans want to trust their Government, the Government really doesn't care about the public opinions nor demon-cracy. The elite authorities trust each other more so , and simple lie to the public all the time. We know this lying, from when they open their mouths. It's  why I trust far more in the greater good amoung my family and tribe of artists for the pass 50 years. All I seen done by Government God's, from youth is tripling taxes , and greedy financial institution less fun, less healthy, more difficult and divide and conquer. . Being more private investor at living creates a free trade, building relationships and a successful life. It's also a serious fun lifestyle.
      Because elitists Government and madd greedies, don't care for people at all, at all. If much of the narrative doesn't believe me. So what do I care, as long as I'm experienceing less suffering and more pleasure giving it all away. Giving very little attention to the Governments makes most of those empty promises and worries go away.

      I agree that marijuana should be legalized, you can grow it in the backyard, they have made it into a major crime industry because they have illegalized it.  There are tens of thousands of people rotting away in jail whose only crime was growing some weed in their yard or selling some small bag of it.

      Its a waste of time and resources to fund police, jail, convict people who want to smoke a weed or sell some on the side.

      The only thing it really helps making it illegal is the pharmaceutical industry and the gangs and cartels that sell and grow it because it is illegal.

      As for the rest... what Democrats are today is simple and has really been put on display since Oct 7th.

      They are all about Oppressed or Oppressor.

      Victim or Victimizer

      Based on that, you cannot be a criminal if you are a victim, if you have been oppressed.  You cannot be a terrorist if you are the victim and have been oppressed.

      Very simple ideology.

      Yes it goes further than that, is more complex, involves race and religion.

      But that essentially sums it up, which is why you see LGBTQ+ groups marching for and defending Hamas and Palestine.  Doesn't make sense to people like you or I, but if you understand it through the new Left/Democrat prism it all makes sense.

      Its why Jews are being attacked on campuses, why Transmen are replacing women in sports, why people who complain about millions streaming across the borders are racist, etc. etc.

      Marxism changed and transformed to Postmodernism, which changed and realigned to Identity Politics and minorities rights.  In sum we have a little bit of all of them driving the Democrat Party, their major funders and supporters.

      In short, the Democrat Party used to be the party of the Blue Collar working class, but has shifted over to a intellectual socialist class focused on minority rights.  While the Republicans have shifted to being a Nationalist, Capitalist, Blue Collar party.

      Ultimately though, there is the Uniparty, which is Globalist, Corporatist and Socialist (Identity Politics) in nature. Globalist and Corporatist for the elites pulling the strings, and then lower class existence for the rest, tiered by victim and oppression status.

        A fair overall accessment. 

        I actually built a tiny houses partly out of hemp. And grew cannabis medicine in BC Canada . No other plant on earth can make 50,000 products and be the best medicine known to humankind. It's among the greatest conspiracy theories along with throw away light bulbs conspiracy. 

        Cannabis has been made into a billionaire profit recreational drug rather than a medicine,  that can be best served.

          Here's a very interesting article on the subject. It claims that fear of Mexicans crossing the border was a basic cause of its becoming illegal years ago. So if this article is true, it was a discriminatory act, just the same as segregation or other acts passed against a race of people.

            The name Marijuana came from what they called the Mexican drug. As kids we smoked Mexican weed and it took 5 joints to get high. The marijanna properganda films we had to watch in school,  (my favorite Reefer Maddness) only encouraged us more, to find out what stronger pot they were smoking. The beginnings of pleasure rebel, today everything in moderation.

    What is the aim of the democrat party?

    First, the democrat party prefer people who break the law to law abiding citizens.  They work to free criminals, ignore their crimes and set them loose on society as soon as possible.  This scenario is something that is done is every democrat city in the United States.  This is a fact.

    Second, the democrat party prefers illegal aliens to American citizens or legal immigrants.  The biden administration and democrat controlled states and cities have proven this time and time again.  Senior citizens being evicted from buildings so it could be used to house illegal aliens, veterans being moved to make room for illegal aliens.  Relaxing the enforcement of the border so tens of thousands of illegal aliens can illegally enter our country.

    Third, the democrat party has no problem committing election interference.  From the illegal laws passed in Pennsylvania to the Hunter Biden laptop story being buried, to the false claim 50 intelligence officers signing a document saying it was russian disinformation and later omitting it was false. Then there was the falsehood of russiagate.  This list of democrat lies and distortions it too long to even begin to mention.

    The aim of the democrat party is total control of every citizen's life.  They want the ability to impose their beliefs on everyone and especially those who disagree with them.

    The recent support of the democrat party members for Hamas speaks volumes about the aim of the democrat party.

      I'm not happy with new left woke imposing their Idealogies.  The left thinks the Government should  be really creative and is the envy of right or moderates. Don't think Governments should be creative, just take care of the small stuff. When ideas are not backed up with usually purpose, it often meaninglessness. Like Covidism,  genderism  carbonism, wars,  censorship and so on.

      This is called Identity Politics, with an important focus on minority rights.
      Its simple, you cannot be a criminal if you are an oppressed victim.
      Just like you cannot be a terrorist if you are a victim of oppression.

      If you had a good University education, this would be understood.  The victims and oppressed are rising up, LGBTQ+ march with their oppressed Palestinian brothers and sisters, who march with their BLM brothers and sisters, united they will bring down the tyranny of the Patriarchal Western world.



      This is racism and ignorance at its worst, again, a good University education would remediate these antiquated and prejudiced concepts.

      Migration is a global reality. There are hundreds of millions of international migrants worldwide, the majority of which travel, live and work in a safe, orderly and regular manner.

      The American government, President Obama and President Biden, both champion the Global Compact on Migration, Global Compact on Refugees and the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration. These Global Compacts, present international cooperation frameworks as laid out in the New York Declaration.

      It is International Law, UN Policy, and agreed to in other compacts, the US government whether through various non-profit organizations, NGOs or through foreign government efforts shall not only provide for all migrants that reach its borders, but shall facilitate to the best of their ability the means for all migrants to reach the US if that is their intent.



      This is nonsense, Democrats champion protecting people from harmful speech, protecting victims and the oppressed, ensuring everyone gets an equal share of the benefits of society while fighting to undo the inherent injustice based on systemic racism and sexism.

      "First, the democrat party prefer people who break the law to law abiding citizens. "

      I've posted this information many times before. But since it bounces of some people, here it is again from Politifact:

      "Recent administrations with the MOST criminal indictments:

      Trump (Republican) — 215

      Nixon (Republican) — 76

      Reagan (Republican) — 26

      "Recent administrations with the LEAST criminal indictments:

      Obama (Democrat) — 0

      Carter (Democrat) — 1

      Clinton (Democrat) — 2

        How come they can't pin down Trump?

        It all doesn't matter, a President is selected. About as opposite as a person I would want to be.

        I would say it was the democrat party that looked the other way during the George Floyd riots and let that happen.  Recent documentary proves it. It was the democrat party that started the defund the police movement causing crime to skyrocket in democrat cities around the country.  It is the democrat party that worked to elect George Soros backed prosecutors who are soft on crime around the country causing an increase in crime around the country.  Then there is the "no bail" laws that have caused crime to increase dramatically.

        All of this is evidence that the democrat party is more interested in serving criminals than serving law-abiding, tax paying citizens.

    Been doing some thinking on this. The legalization of marijuana isn't the only freedom that the Democrats have worked hard to give the people of America. Think about the fact that we citizens, no matter what our religion or no religion at all, were still bound by laws that should have been unconstitutional under the First Amendment such as Blue Laws and no alcohol sales on Sunday. You younger folks think about what it was like not to be able to go to the mall after 5:00 if you needed to go get a new dress after work. Heck there weren't any malls in most places back then, and Main Street locked up its doors at 5:00 pm. No stores were open on Sunday because of the religious fanatical Blue Laws. When some of the larger stores, like discount stores, started opening on Sunday, there were certain items that couldn't be sold like paper towels, light bulbs and even baby diapers. (I remember asking one clerk "Why, babies pee on Sunday, too?") How would you like that? It took freedom minded people like Democrats to work to get these laws off the books. And then they succeeded in getting reproductive rights for women. Heaven forbid! (And now they are being taken away again. What's next?) Oh yeah, if people were going to get together at a neighbor's house to barbecue and watch the big game on a Sunday afternoon, they had to stock up on their beer and other "adult" beverages before midnight Saturday.

    Sure Democrats have some liberal ideas that even I don't like, but I certainly don't want to return to the days of being told when I can and cannot buy something I need or not go somewhere I want to go just because somebody's religion claims that it's a sin. Think about it. We have it pretty good now, but THAT group is trying to take us back to the 1940s and 1950s. We are halfway there by having women's reproductive rights and other medical decisions taken away from  us. I don't want to go back. Do you?

      "Democrats have worked hard to give the people of America."

      I think this theory was destroyed during the pandemic when the democrat states had some of the most insane laws.  Letting people protest in masse and punishing people who wanted have an church service outside.  In Michigan they even prevented people from going to hardware stores and more.
      The old democrats were tolerable.  Today's democrats are nothing less than communist wannabes.

        This is what is not understood by older generation Democrats.

        They do not realize their Party has been kidnapped by a cult, which believes just what I posted in my previous response.

        Its interesting, to see the liberators and Rights activists of the past (the old Democrats) supporting the very opposite of what they spent their lives fighting to liberate America from, its just a different form of oppression and tyranny that will ultimately fail just like all others in history have failed when built on falsehoods and fabricated reality.

          If it's not based on good sense and biological,  it looses it's merits. I can't even have a discussion with LGBT,  snd they lack a sense humor. The next greatest scam is the carbonism,  like a 100 trillion world cost to lower the temperature by 1 degree.  When there is already 5% more plant life on earth than ever has before because of carbon.  ZERO  carbon will kill every living creature.

            How about the Republican scam of trying to convince us that we should live under a theocratic dictatorship. Do you think that is better than putting up with a few trans, gays, and BLM? I'm not happy with some of that either, but I can turn the other cheek before I can live under a dictator supported by the "Christian" Taliban, that tries to take us back to the 1930s. No marijuana then either. Our Supreme Court for life has made one step in that direction and they are gunning for more. In fact, the dictator wannabee has already announced that he will fire and arrest government employees and voters who didn't support him. And his supporters think that taking away our freedoms is A-OK.

        In my previous post, I wrote:

        The legalization of marijuana isn't the only freedom that the Democrats have worked hard to give the people of America."

        The sentence was shortened to: "Democrats have worked hard to give the people of America."

        Mike, you took half of my sentence out of context with no ellipses, and no other indication that you were taking material out of context. First, the shortened version doesn't make sense. Second, taking it out of context changed the meaning of what I meant. A true journalist would not have done that. That is called Yellow Journalism. That is unethical. I'm sorry that you had to resort to that to get your point across. I do sometimes agree with you and enjoy what you have to say, but not this time.

          I'd like to remind you this is not a news reporting forum.  It is an opinion forum.  Therefore, there is NO journalism being conducted.

          You may want to do some research on the history and actual meaning behind Yellow Journalism before you use it again.  It has nothing to do with postings on opinion forums and everything to do with news reporting.

          I hope you see the difference.

    My thoughts are that it must be stopped before it completely destroys the country and every principle and value we hold. I think cracks are beginning to show, though, and believe that America can survive even the strongest leftist attacks.

    It's given me concern. But I still have faith in the resiliency and strength of America and the majority of Her people to overcome the powers that wish to destroy it.

      You have to recognize what transpired for the 2020 election.

      Then realize that none of those states have changed their 'Mail in Ballot" laws since the 2020 election, so, the same thing that occurred in 2020 will occur in 2024.

      This is the reason why Biden has no real concern about what the polls say.  Its not about who votes... its who is filling out and counting the 'Mail in Ballots' that matter.  Research this well enough and you will find the facts.

      Like him or hate him, regardless, ask yourself, was he wrong?

      There is a big difference between Republicans and democrats.

      Sort of like the contrast between the failing of democrat/liberal California and the success of Republican/Conservative Florida or Texas? 

      Interesting how liberals tend to move to conservative states but it doesn't happen the other way around.
