26. This board is not representative of the Democratic party establishment.
This board is way to the left, and is NOT representative of the direction of the party as a whole.

I hope you'll be open minded enough to at least be scared off by the right thing. Maybe you should swear off internet forums (which tend to attract the extremes) before you get an excessively blinkered view of American politics.
