Response to frazzled (Reply #26)

Mon Feb 27, 2012, 10:26 PM

36. I honestly don't see how a flood of Republicans joining the Democratic party will push it left..

What I suspect will happen is the Democrats will move further right in order to court the Republican voters, who else are the dirty fucking hippies gonna vote for anyway, eh?

In my view one big difference between the Republican party and the Democratic party is that the Republicans fear their base while the Dems loathe theirs.

I suppose it's possible that a bunch of Republicans joining the Democrats will move them to the left but I sure wouldn't make a bet on it.
