Why do Democrats have to be moderates?


Recommended Posts

Headline at the NY Times today:

 

Alarmed by Sanders, Moderate Democrats Can’t Agree on an Alternative

  • In both Iowa and New Hampshire, a majority supported moderate candidates, but there was no consensus on an alternative to Senator Bernie Sanders.
  • Unless a centrist favorite soon emerges, moderates may increasingly look to Michael Bloomberg as their potential savior.

Reagan was an extremist. GW Bush was an extremist. Trump is an extremist.

 

What is this thing about Democrats having to be moderates?!

Liberals run radical leftists while demanding conservatives run moderates. Reagan wasn't a radical. Bush Jr was not very conservative. Trump? He's a pragmatist liberal. You are running socialists while whining when we run moderate conservatives.

Reagan was referred to as a right winger when he ran for office. At the time, journalists only just that phrase to refer to military dictators and the like.

He demonstrably wasn't a military dictator. And you wonder why conservatives have a hard time taking global warming concerns seriously? I appreciate some of the concerns expressed by liberals, they are valid. The manner in which they express them though is so devoid of reality they are perhaps wrongfully easily dismissed.

By moderate, you mean non-socialist or non-communist? Be moderate only if you want a hope to win.

We are radicalizing the Dem. Party

And leaving behind millions in the process. There is a reason the GOP never ran an ultra right winger. Guess Democrats need to learn the hard way that Americans are not interested in a large cradle to grave socialist nanny State. A majority find the notion repugnant.

  Democrats should not even be on the voting ballots because they have not retained any belief in a functioning government by the people.  Vote democrat to end voting and install a permanent anti creation monarchical dictatorship.

 

 

Democrat sponsored change for the legal system will result in your person-persons enjoying 0 rights to a life.
