@Irishk,
Well, apparently the party stands for nothing these days.

@edgarblythe,
I thought about it. Too hard a question for me. I think of it as a ragbag containing all sorts of opinions/beliefs ranging from not so very left to well into the right with dashes of libertarian thoughts for added spice.

According to the "What We Stand For" menu at democrats.org:

-Civil Rights
-Economy & Job Creation
-Education
-Energy Independence
-Environment
-Fair Elections
-Health Care
-Immigration Reform
-National Security
-Open Government
-Science & Technology
-Retirement Security
-Voting Rights

Of course, I could say that I stand for these things too. Doesn't mean I do...

It's one thing to click "like" on a topic. Something else to fight for it.

@RABEL222,
I'm curious what you agree with...


Why not vote for the person you want to be the president?

@thack45,
Because I havent found anyone who is running for president or congress who believes as I do. For 50 years I have voted for the people who I believed would do the least damage to government and our economy so I have decided to vote against whoever is in office because Dem. or repub. they are all crooked politicians.

@RABEL222,
Same here. The way they get you is by running a festering pile of **** against a mere pile of **** so you feel compelled to vote anyway.

@RABEL222,
I'd guess you're far from alone with this mentality. And considering the commonality of such a grim view of American politics - by Americans, I wonder why we continue to accept the same thing happening over and over again.

Why,of all the nonsense! Just like the Republicans, the party stands for re-election.

And so we'll go on waiting for worthy politicians to emerge from the empowered parties in which we admittedly have no confidence... Ah well
