In this all-new Off the Grid, I discuss why Democrats flip-flop on the issues every time public opinion changes. For example, Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama have both flip-flopped on immigration and same-sex marriage over the years.
But are these dems flip-flopping because their stances have truly evolved over time, or are they only doing it to get votes?

Dems "flip-flop" because they are believers in science. Science is roughly defined as "the pursuit of truth"...and when new, verifiable evidence comes along, then Dems adapt to the most recent verifiable information, much like science. BLIND FAITH is not a defining factor for Dems, nor is it a useful tool to guide a nation.

I’ve gotta admit, I’m a flip-flopper, too. I think most of us are. For whatever reasons, over time we all tend to change our tune on specific issues. That doesn’t mean we change our entire ideology, although that happens, too. This is normal.
