Real Music has stated clearly that the Democratic party can take their vote for granted. They don't have to worry at all about what Real Music feels about any position or wants as far as policy.
The primaries will determined what kind of candidate will represent the democratic party in the general election. I will cast my vote in the primaries for who I want to represent the democratic party in the general election. There is no one perfect candidate that will be the most acceptable candidate to all
democrats. That candidate simply doesn't exist. It is unrealistic for anyone to think such a candidate actually exist. Ultimately there can only be one winner in the primary. As a democrat, I do my part by voting in the primaries. Preferably "closed"
primaries. After a candidate has won the democratic party primary, they can surely count on me to show up at the polls to vote democrat in the general.
I will insist that the Democrat party earn my vote.
The only time the democrat has to earn my vote is during the primaries.
They are guaranteed to get my vote in the general.
They need to convince me that they are listening to my positions.
The democratic party should also be listening to the far left and pro-choice wing of the party.
if the pro-choice wing of the party represents the vast majority of the party.
They need to show me that they respect me as an American.
I never thought the democratic party disagreeing with your views was seen as disrespecting you as an American.
Your views are your views. If the democratic party disagree with your views, that simply means the democratic disagrees with your views.
Nothing more, nothing less.
I understand that it isn't realistic for them to agree with me 100%, but I want them to avoid positions that I consider extreme and I want to know that they respect my position even if the chosen candidate doesn't agree with it.
The party is never going to please everyone. The best thing to have a "closed"
primary and battle out our differences. Then stand behind the winner of the primaries by voting for that person in the general election. The primaries is where you battle out your differences. Not in the general election.
The Democratic party has a responsibility to find a candidate who can reach out to a broad portion of the American electorate.
I disagree. The democratic party has the responsibility to pick a candidate who is most acceptable to the democratic party. That is why we democrats vote in our "closed"
primaries, so that we democrats can pick our candidates.
If the Democrats chose another bad candidate and then tells me to vote for them because Trump... I am not doing that again.
Real Music is giving up the power to insist the party represent their position. Actually I am perfectly fine with that.... it gives me more leverage to get a Democratic candidate that I find acceptable. Because, I will not vote for another unacceptable candidate.
Sometimes the democrats will win in the general. Sometimes the democrats will lose in the general. Sometimes my preferred candidate will win the primaries. Sometimes my preferred candidate will lose in the primaries. I am happy when the democrats win. I am not happy when the democrats lose. The last election is over. I am looking only at the next election. There are no guarantees in politics. There is one guarantee. I guarantee I will be voting democrat.
