87. Now I really am confused.

 

You registered as a Democrat, you vote as a Democrat, and you still call us "they"?

Quoting you:
"Why have the democrats had such a run of terrible luck lately, They have lost control of the white house, both houses of congress and will be on the wrong side of most supreme court decisions because they could not get even get their nominee a hearing."

I believe you, that you don't vote as a Dem because it suits you. But calling us "they" and "them" tells me that you still don't consider yourself one of us. You prefer to stand a little apart. Just as Bernie Sanders does. I'm not sure what point you were meaning to make, but that comes through loud and clear.

(Btw, Bernie switched parties for the advantages of access to party resources & visibility it gave him in the PRIMARY, in which he was running directly against Clinton. "Splitting the progressive vote" in the primary was irrelevant. It would only have applied if he had run third party against Clinton & Trump in the GE.)
