re: #107 Targetpractice

Blind adherence to dogma is not a hallmark of the Dems, they would not suffer a President Sanders well. If he won the presidency, it would be because the majority of the party supported him as the nominee, not because of his ideology or his beliefs. Which would become immediately evident the moment he actually started trying to enact policy and ran into skepticism within the party. Obama tried to pass fairly conservative legislation in the form of the ACA and ran into massive resistance within his own party from Blue Dogs, almost every one of which either lost reelection the following year for supporting “socialism” or scraped by by the skin of their teeth.

This is no real equivalent of the “Freedom Caucus” within the Dem ranks, you would never see the sort of fanaticism and blatant hypocrisy you see in Repubs under a Trump presidency.

Speaking of the Blue Dogs, that’s why I want to tell people to fuck off when they act like the Democratic Party is more to the right than it’s ever been and these are the same people who put FDR up on a pedestal that he doesn’t deserve. Now I like FDR, the New Deal was some of the most important legislation this country has ever had but they ignore that FDR was a lot more nuanced than they give him credit for.
