The clue distribution program, for those who need one, will held at ___ from ___ to ____. In fairness to those having problems here, though, you’ll be easily able to identify it by the line of Democratic politicians waiting for theirs.
Bottom line: the Democratic Party needs to stand for something – a lot of somethings, generically summarized as traditional American freedoms and ideals. (And no, Shodan, “American freedoms” does not include the right to force your POV on others. There’s a name for that, but it’s probably inappropriate outside the Pit.)
On the rare occasions the Republicans say something right from the moral/political perspective of the Democrats, the Democrats should endorse it. When what they say is wrong, the Democrats should speak up and stand for what is right, and define it in clear and simple terms that the electorate as a whole can quickly grasp.
It’s not a case of opportunism, or simple opposition to right-wing extremism. To be effective, the Democratic Party has to articulate the ideals for which it stands. It has been remarkably ineffective at doing so over the past few years.
