1. IMO the change is in the party labels. Dem doesn't mean liberal any more than Rep mean conservative.


Reps are having their own identity problems with the TP vs conservatives. Likewise the liberals are not falling into place with the Dems anymore. The Dem party has moved so far to the right that it is attracting Rinos which might as well be brothers to the Dinos. Then there is an effort IMO to re-brand liberals as something they haven't been and the attacks are coming from both parties. I think liberals embarrass the Dems or shame them and they don't or won't look at themselves as to why. The are not FDR Dems. Yea I know FDR wasn't perfect but he went a long way into the right direction. I even wonder if some Dems are pro human, equal and constitutional rights anymore other than giving lip service. They don't seem very willing to do battle to defend it ...maybe they've given up with this fucked up SCOTUS. I don't blame them ...SCOTUS is off the chain. It doesn't help that Obama has selected Reps and insiders to his admin ...wanna talk about being demoralized? Of course the fawners don't and won't talk about that unless it is the form of attack snark or alerting. Well they don't need my vote ...they will get plenty enough to replace mine with those from the Rinos. I don't see much of a problem coupling up with progressives, populists and socialists as long as the direction is away from the centrists, 3rd way, DLC and corporatists. This fucking country is owned but I am still a liberal and always will be.
