47. That is the line, but when they let the GOP in the tents "large back door"

The party began to stand for nothing.

From the thirties until the early 80's the party reflected a progressive view and agenda as well as a willingness to serve labor and the poor over the Monopolists.

It is simply not the Democratic Party it was (and I am) for all those years, it changed in the eighties when Will Marshal thought it would be a good Idea to recruit Republican Ideas as well as Republican Politicians

You likely have very little knowledge of party history and it's basic consistent principles, what you call a big tent is more like an infiltration.

When you become your enemy, you are no longer yourself, they are perhaps "New Democrats" which means they believe in most of the 1992 Republican platform, to me that just means they are Republicans that register as Democrats to get elected and then vote for Republican laws.

I never signed on to a party that embraced the Heritage foundation over labor or the poor, if
I did I would have registered as a Republican in the late eighties rather than attempt to infiltrate the party and inject the GOP agenda into it as Will Marshall did.

Party infiltration and a 180 change on economic, military, and trade policy is not the sign of a big tent, it is a sign of well, infiltration.
