71. The Democratic representatives have much to learn

They've helped, perhaps unwittingly, the status quo which has led to the election of Trump. Especially by ignoring the far Left and becoming centrists. They've allowed the kind of situation in which the Right can go even further Right as they please.

We have to admit that in many ways our Party has moved too far to the right, especially since Bill Clinton's Administration. When just keeping the status quo is meaningless because it's too far Right for anyone to consider their vote to be of any importance the election of Trump is not that hard to understand. If everyone moves to the right then it's no surprise if the winner is as far Right as they come. So much so that it's closer to Fascism than to Democracy.
