Why I finally quit the Democratic party (earlier this year)

Long time Democrat. I finally had enough. I am now a registered Independent voter.
I'm not a prolific poster, I was a long-time lurker who joined ATS to refute posts by a Right-leaning member that I thought were over the top.
Years have passed and I would say time changes us all (and the things around us.) So here it is, an honest explanation of why I quit the Democratic party earlier this year.

A few reasons:
Vote totals went down after I went to bed during the election. I have never seen this in my life and they were not explained at all.

Election watchers were sent home before the counting was finished in multiple precincts.

Progressives trying to push the Democratic party further left until it feels like the party of nonsense
-1619 Project
-Critical Race Theory
-Embrace Socialism (My rich sister points to Norway, I suggest Cuba is more realistic)

Over the top theatrics stating that questioning election results puts our Democracy in Jeopardy. This is crap, previous elections have been contested (by both parties) and it's part of Democracy to make sure the person we say was elected was actually elected.

Propaganda or lying to citizens by government officials: CDC Lied about masks. I worked in lab science for 20+ years. I've read a ton of peer reviewed studies that show mask effectiveness under varying conditions (and use cases.) Lying to change my behavior is pathetic and authoritarian. Just restrict surgical mask sales or appeal to our intelligence. Don't assume people are dumb and try and manipulate us... (I should also include)

The creation of a group of people who will not work (thanks illegal welfare state and landlord mandates)

The destruction of the rental and housing markets (thanks illegal welfare state and landlord mandates)

Illegal orders/abuse of power (see above, we never mandated the CDC with power over the rental market and all landlords)

Wrecking downtown and destroying businesses (riots during the summer of love.) I applaud small business owners, wrecking things fixed nothing.

Treating rioters as heroes and dropping their charges... If you do this then the capital riot was certainly not an insurgency, it was a form of protest. Drop their charges too.

The following came along and confirmed to me that my decision was correct:
Forced Vaccination (Hey, the science says that if you had COVID you should not get the vaccine and that Natural Immunity exists. Quit saying that the Democratic party follows the science.)

Democrats decrying border conditions under Trump do not care how much worse Biden has made it.

Vaccine mandates for citizens but not for the tens of thousands of aliens that were brought in to the country recently.

Biden claiming that Trump's timeline in Afghanistan was driving his surrender. I call BS, he undid every one of Trumps orders in record time. Biden chose the Timeline for Afghanistan.

Demanding business owners police their employees vaccination status under penalty of (ridiculously high) fine. A fine high enough to destroy business that do not comply. Thanks for bypassing congress for illegal orders, you are actually worse than Trump when it comes to ignoring our Constitution and Rule of Law.



Not really sure why I wanted to get this off my chest, but I did.

Welcome to the non party. Where logical thinking overrules emotion. Where there is no your truth, just simply the truth.

I imagine that many others have seen through the Democrats globalist/communistic agenda and that they have been to ready to think people that vote for them are stupid.
It shouldn't be left v. right etc,it should be the people against the globalist communists.

Question is, why would you be a Democrat in the first place?

Good for you,

I quit the Republican party about 2008, thanks to W and his lies, the 9/11 cover-up, Robert Baer's semi-fictional book See No Evil and Craig Unger's House of Bush, House of Saud. I'm still registered Republican because in my home state voting is rigged and if you are not one of the two controlling parties, your voice is squelched.

The "two-party system" in the US is a joke, a disgrace, and a deception. They are two sides of the same coin; and the coin is a plugged nickle.

I was a long time registered Republican, though I mostly voted for independents. I remained a Republican so that I could vote for Ron Paul in the primaries.

In 16 I registered Democrat so that I could vote against Clinton in the primaries over there. I had no idea that my ole party would veer so dramatically off course in into the hands of a con man, but veer they did.

I stayed registered Democrat in 2020 so that I could vote for Tulsi Gabbard in their primaries.

Now I will be switching again, back to Republican so that I can vote in the primaries in that party again. Against Trump and any of his acolytes.

The insanity in both parties is mind numbing. One seems to be a down the middle schism while the other seems a mish mash of confusion.

Man we need a third party NOW. We need to tell the zealots in both sides to simmer down and lets pull it together before it is to late. And sure, it may be to late already, but maybe not.

We Independents are almost THE MAJORITY of voters.

Welcome to the club, and congratulations for USING your brain.

Not to answer for the OP, but there was a time when - however precariously - the two different ends of the political spectrum were a good necessity. I've often said that nobody is right all the time. When opposing views can openly dialog for a true mutual understanding, or at least a reasonable compromise, we check one another.

That does not happen anymore.

You're an Independent? Strange, I kinda got the impression that you are a bit pro Trump and anti Dems/Biden etc?

Maybe I have misread your many, many posts on those subjects?

Thank you for your well thought-out and better written reasons for leaving the democratic party.

Your reasons are exact and 'right on'.

I agree. We need to become unified as humans to overcome this tyranny in almost all of the countries.

Plausible Deniability when the Democrats march all the Republicans into the death camps or vice versa.

Asking a question is being triggered? Or is calling someone triggered a transparent attempt to avoid a sincere and educational response?

What I see here is approval for a democrat quitting their membership because that's interpreted as a point for the good guys but I don't quite grasp what has been achieved or why it's "winning". Pat on the back because you're not one of the stinky liar face democrats. Is it really that easy to be rewarded? 🤔

Yeah, you make many good points. Becoming aware can stir up the soul, or is it agitation?

Things are bad today. Every single thing on the political stage is a hoax of some type. An every solution is engineered for destruction, even the conservatives are on board to help find “solutions” to these problems created by government.

Why not stop with the blatant attacks on humanity?

Nobody is stopping the nonsense. Democracy has become counterproductive. Integration comes to mind, we’re too busy thinking or taken care of others that we forgot about our own history an people.

Their finger, the left right paradigm, has always been pointed into the wrong direction, we never caught it, now that finger is pointed at us. The wrong direction again.

Mob rules is our new normal and this mob is not very smart attentive or aware.

But as long as the mob believes, we remain at their mercy.

Found this on ATS, don’t remember where exactly.
