7. Third Way Clintonism,

or as Obama puts it, "Republican Policies from the 80s", is NOT why I joined the Democratic
Party over 50 years ago. I FOUGHT hard AGAINST "Moderate Republican Policies" in the 80s, and I'm not going to timidly start supporting these same policies now.

"The Era of Big Government is OVER"---Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, and paraphrased by Grover Norquist.

a mainstream-center FDR/LBJ loyal DEMOCRAT for over 55 years who is NOW labeled a "Far Leftist" in the 3rd Way Clinton Party.
I haven't changed. What passes for the Democratic Party today has changed.

I want a party that will STAND UP for Working Americans."
