Response to George II (Original post)

Mon Jun 10, 2019, 10:47 PM

47. There is no "Democrat Party"

The reason conservatives use the phrase, "democrat party" is because they no longer believe that America is a representative democracy. They don't believe in democracy. They believe in winning, and the very idea of "democracy" needs to be eliminated from the language altogether.
A favorite talking point from conservatives I keep encountering lately on comments threads is that "America is NOT a democracy, it is a republic."
Every time I encounter the phrase, "democrat party" I stop and tell whomever it is that they are not intelligent enough to be in the discussion because they are talking about a political party that does not exist. It works, too. They have no comeback.
