Bernie Sanders and Democrats are on the same side

Let's all remember that. Ideologically he lines up with Dems on almost all issues. He votes and caucuses with the Democrats. He is not the enemy, the GOP is. Sure I wish he would join the party and not go on cable news (especially FAUX) to criticizes the party. But to quote Bill Maher, 'You need to distinguish between an imperfect friend and a deadly enemy'.

John Conyers introduced a Medicare for All bill in January

and got over 100 House Dems to co-sponsor. Why does no one mention this and why does Conyers not get any credit?

The "Democrat" party

If anyone wants to have some fun visit the message board of right wing site and simply correct someone when they post "Democrat" party instead of Democratic party. A good number will push back with something idiotic. Plus you can provide links from Wikipedia or other reference sites that prove them wrong and ask them why they don't like facts. Then watch them get even more ridiculous with their response. Fun for the whole family.

I am correct that the goal of this site is to support the Democratic party?

And Democratic candidates?

If I am wrong, please let me know. Thanks.

Unanimous Supreme Court overturns a Gorsuch decision ... in the middle of his confirmation hearing


Unanimous Supreme Court overturns a Gorsuch decision ... in the middle of his confirmation hearing

Neil Gorsuch’s belief in reading the law as narrowly as needed to screw ordinary people reared its head again during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing Wednesday, but not because of anything Gorsuch himself said on Wednesday. No, the issue was something the entire United States Supreme Court said—that Gorsuch was wrong in a 2008 opinion dealing with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

Pundits say Dems need to reach out to the White Working class but do we really want to?

Coming from the White Working class, I know many of these people. They are good hard working people.

But they continually vote against their own economic interests by voting for Republicans. In the 80s they were called 'Reagan Democrats' and voted for him despite his economic policies which hurt them.

Why?

Simple. The right has done a great job of fooling these people to blame their lot in life not on the powerful who are really responsible but on minorities instead. Remember Reagan's 'Welfare Queens' act. They right tells the that they didn't lose their job because the greedy owners moved the plant to China to pay slave wages; it was because immigrants stole their jobs or taxes were too high supporting all those lazy people on welfare and food stamps or because their corrupt union leaders sold out to the Democrats. You child didn't get into college, not because the GOP defunded public schools but because of affirmative action. And so on and so on.

The right, especially Trump, has done masterful job in conning these people by playing on their prejudices and bigotry. In the 80s the issue was abortion, now it is Muslims, Mexicans, LGBTQ rights, etc.

So the real question is, should the Dems try to pander to these people?

They weren't wiretapping Trump Tower but

they were probably wiretapping Russian officials and maybe caught Trump campaign officials talking with the Russians. That could be what Trump is afraid of coming out.
