This video really articulates my feelings about the hate mongering democratic party that I used to belong to before their victim mentality promotion, vitriol, devisiveness, pc culture and lack of logic and intelligence turned me away. Apparently there are lots of others that feel the same way. The gentleman in this video articulates very well the current state of the democratic party.

My wife did this. Life long leftie.

What I couldn't do over 30 years, the present day left did in a few short months.

i'm kind of a "don't run away from anything till you know what you are running to" type of person...
so is there anyplace worth running to? and don't say the republican, conservatives, trumpists, ect....
we need a valid third party, either that of maybe the those on the extreme side of each party just break away from their moderate counterparts and have four parties.. but, the extremists in both parties are really kind of a turn off.. it's just that those on the right scare me more.. they have guns and seem to be itching to use them.

I prefer to step out of a burning building and take my chances on the outside.
But I see your point about changing sides.
Why would you want to step into another dumpster fire.

I was a democratic voter from 1984 to the 2010 midterm election.
Over time, dems went from the 'empower the weak, teach them to succeed'' to the ''entitle the lower classes by punishing the success of others''
Middle age has something to do w/ my changing attitudes, I'm sure.
We're becoming a welfare nation.

I'm so happy to see the democratic party imploding- we might very well see a third party get some attention soon!

Down with both sides, I say. Two party system sucks. With all of the hate at the last election cycle I thought we might finally see enough third party votes to make a difference... but alas, once again all the city folk around here voted for their "more free stuff" party lines, and everyone outside of the city voted for their "please stop taxing us to death" party lines...

Actually you register as an independent. Then you study all candidates and vote in the ones that your conscious tells you are best for the country. Or vote out the ones who you think would be detrimental to the country. A third party, to me, isn’t really the answer as it’s still a “group” telling me how I should think. Maybe abolish all “parties” and an individual runs on their own? Shrug...I don’t know the answer.

I do know that I own guns. I also know if you don’t break into my house, or don’t attack/assault/try to rob me or my family, you’ve got nothing to worry about.

The right aren't the gun-toting rednecks the media is trying to portray as.

Most everyone I know that is an adult is center-right.

None of them own guns to fight the imaginary gov, or are itching for a civil war to shoot hippies.

We really need to shut down the CNN's in our country before operation Patriot act 2 gets passed.

Don't have to walk to the Republican party. Just get away from the toxic Democrats. But do vote in every election. Those who don't vote, should not complain.

Funny how I don't know a single person that has left the dem party but I do know 5 people that have left the repub party.


We will never truly know how many people are in any of these parties. Not really.

I have a theory that they are supposed to look like the toxic left.

They are looking for a landslide right vote.

It's creepy looking at ALL of the politicians not actually making any decsions, just showing their faces as the PR arm of the gov, while all decisions are made behind closed doors.

It's kind of stupid to think that the gov just stopped controlling the media the minute Trump got elected.

You can tell watching Trump smack-talk. He is lying and reading a script. The alpha dog doesn't care about yipping.

These guys will put on giant soap opera about pedo alien nazis before they let the wealth redistribution tax scams end.

Politicians are who we bitch about while being ripped off by the system.

I'm a registered democrat, my husband was a register republican, we figured that way, we, as a family unit would have a say in both party's primaries. but, when it comes to the voting booth, I just ain't a loyalist.. I've probably voted for just as many republicans as I have dems... the problem has become as of late, are there anyone on the ballot worth voting for? and well, if the answer seems to be no, I will either just not vote or do a write in if I can.

I have always had some liberal leanings like gay marriage and an easier path to citizenship but I never thought the dems knew what the hell they were doing with the economy.
The economy was the top of my priorities list so I usually vote for a Republican candidate.

The issue was never black and white for me.

I just found their Facebook group called walk away campaign about an hour ago. It got about 500 new members since then. It’s a public group, I read their posts and comments...no hate whatsoever! Waiting to be accepted. I basically stop using social media because of the hate. This group looks amazing!

As you admitted, you are talking out of fear not reason.

Have you ever seen this list of 100 things that make you racist. As we all KNOW, racism is always the far right.

Things that are racist(with news stories links) include: Milk, Science, Babies, and so on, it would be funny if people didn't really think this way

dailycaller.com...

Do you know how many of MILLIONS of guns are in America, and how many people have those millions of guns. If people had an itch to use them, they would and they could use their guns, and there is pretty much nothing that could be done, short of calling out the army.

I’ve always been more moderate than anything. Voted for Obama in 2008, was disappointed in his actions. Didn’t vote in 2012 due to no interest in either party. Then voted Trump in 2016, because Hillary didn’t talk about any policies that would be helpful to my situation and Trump did. The Democratic Party just went way to far left, so I doubt I can get behind another dem candidate unless some major changes are done to the party. This is the same with most of my family.

That's exactly what I did.I registered as an Independent.

I actually agree with certain ideas on both sides.I think we should all realize we are all Americans.We are much stronger if we stand together as Americans,not as liberals and conservatives.
