This!

I'm begging for a reason to vote Dem, but when they put Mexicans before Americans, what choice do I have?


Want proof that Democrats planned the current government shut-down?

On Jan 10th, a Federal Judge ruled that DACA would continue for the foreseeable future.
Source: www.npr.org...

Democrats didn't applaud that decision, or mention it, during this week's budget negotiations. Doing so would have exposed a big hole in their strategy to tie preventing DACA's expiration, to the budget extension.

Democrats demanded DACA continuation, and refuged to budge, even though a Federal Judge had already ruled that DACA cannot expire for a long time. They knew this, but forced a shutdown anyway, just as planned.

The "Schumer Shutdown" is a 100% fitting name for what we're experiencing. This deceitful "strategy" will most certainly backfire on the Democratic party.

Hopefully Republicans will continually point out the Judges Jan 10th ruling to America and to the press. DACA was in NO danger of expiring.

Democrats wanted a government shutdown, so they could blame Trump/Republicans for SOMETHING come election time. With the economy doing so well, they're desperately trying to find ways to turn Americans against Republicans.

That's right, a liberal.

There are no liberals left. Just a bunch of commies and useless waters led by corrupt commies.

How Stupid Has the Democratic Party Become?

Better question
How stupid do folks need to be to keep voting them in ?
Dont blame it on the Party in general . They are just telling their people what they want to hear.


i live in california so i tend to have alot of conversations with self proclaimed liberals. the thing ive come to recognize with a good many of them including my family members is that they are perfectly willing to give a free pass for incompetence, iffy behavior, evidence that such policies have failed, etc because they believe the people on the left are somehow guided by some morally superior and intellectual ethos even if all the evidence points to it being the complete opposite. for many the means justify the end even if that end is still no where in sight.

Being once a "Long haired tree-hugging liberal hippie" I know what you are saying.
And once upon a time in the 60s and 70s it was near true...
Near

But then the Dems are so #ing stupid they fixed there primarys so a corrupt hated witch won, basically throwing the election to donald Trump.

You lost to DONALD FREAKING TRUMP! I mean christ, if you ran a dog it would probably have beat that moronic baffoon, yet you choose the one candidate that could screw it up.

Even when trump himself is on camera saying every shutdown is the fault of the president...

Donald J Trump, 8th Nov 2013 on the Obama shutdown: "Leadership: Whatever happens, you're responsible. If it doesn't happen, you're responsible."

a reply to: [npost=2306n421of3[/post] If the Dems had ran someone more like Joe Manchin they would probably have won,but someone whos a moderate might as well leave the far left party.Remember the Communist chairman endorsing Hillary and basically saying they were the same party now.I used to vote a split ticket,no more though. Hell.I voted for Gore as a Senator till the SOB stabbed small farmers and most of Tennessee residents in the back and showed his true colors.No moderates left anymore.

The commies were pushing this rubbish on their Russian state run station as can be seen in the OPs link

this site used to be very anti Russian , it isn’t anymore let that sink in a while as ATS becomes an echo chamber for 4 chin trolls who want to watch the world burn

Must be the dems turn to be dumb for a while. Next the repubs, rinse and repeat.

As long as the voters don't demand a third party (un-attached to the corporate overlords) this back and forth game will be used. As this thread points out, It is very successful.
This. It was the Republicans who acted like brainwashed fools during the Bush W presidency. Now with identity politics and Russia hysteria many of the Dems are acting the fool.

Yes we need viable third parties, a change to campaign finance, and the elimination of the winner takes all system. Finally, a break up of media empires or severe checks on their journalistic integrity and balance.

I think the left in general are becoming morons and I say that as someone who sits on the left myself.

They (or we I guess) are letting the right win, its the Bannon/Stone strategy and its working, the further to the right the Trump ideology moves then the left just moves further to the left. Lets face it the left has never been a popular. position in America and this strategy of the left moving further to the left is potentially going to hand Trump the next election. It will be a choice between a "right wing nut" and a "commie leftist" (I am being flippant) and the guy on the right is going to win.

The only solution is for the Dems to move back to the centre ground and understanding the reasons that people voted for Trump.

I personally feel like the whole thing is a bit of a mess right now.

High five for 3rd Parties!

I'm liberal, but Hillary being crammed down our throats was a joke. I don't want any dynasties in the White House. The good thing is there are plenty of progressives who think that the Dem party is a sham because of her. Hillary unwittingly liberated plenty of liberals from the leprous Democratic party. Give me Bernie or someone else with a backbone, or I'm voting for Jill Stein again, I swear to God. I'll probably be 3rd party f or a long time because of '16.


I wanted to see a Trump/Bernie face off in 2016. But with Clinton in it to win it he had no chance of reaching the big show.

We will see what insiders we can vote for on the next season of choose your president.
