6. You got that right. That would be a refreshing thing to see. After all, there are all these votes

 

out there, just wanting to be part of the Party. And then there is the illusion you're going to knock of a few Republican votes by being as messed up as they are.

I know which one I would choose. But the Democratic Party does seem to give a shit about its Left flank, nor do they see how many Americans are hungering for Left-leaning Populist ideas and policies.

If the Democrats don't do it, perhaps Donald Trump will, as a number of Republicans have done recently, using Populist positions in a positive way for votes.

Yes, lean left, heal the divides in that way, and we could all enjoy this Democratic Party again.
