21. Well, it is a GOP program, it has simply been re-branded as Democratic, like most of the GOP laws

Our party has been passing as Democratic these days.

The problem is one of re-branding, the "new" Democrats all suckle at the teet of the Heritage Foundation and the US Chamber of Commerce, they promote GOP ideas, hence the confusion when they call these ideas and the legislation they spawn Democratic.

Their party have been proposing things that have moved so far right from the GOP of 10 years ago that I believe they would qualify as Fascist Ideas, hence the confusion when they call these fascist ideas and Legislation Republican.

If you wish to be aware of the options in any realistic way it helps to understand that our party is now what the GOP was around 1993, and the Republicans have gone insane, there is no option anymore for what people above the age of twenty would call Democratic.

Your only options are the center right "new" Democratic party AKA paleo-Republican party, or a blossoming new fascist party, that claim to be Republicans.

Many are still confused and think there is a left or even center left option, there is not, but they will use the old rhetoric to get elected before going all center right to right wing on us.

It is the new political reality, short of taking the party back from conservatives, the only answer is a new party to replace the Democratic party we lost, they actively make a third party as much as a non possibility as they can so that the Conservatives on both sides can get on with the business of helping only big business.
