    Rod and I have both noticed the DNC has been rebranding itself in the recent years. Instead of being the Democrats they now use Democratic as their new brand. Rod asked me about it last night as he couldn't quite get his head wrapped around why they are doing that. Here is the obvious difference for those who can grasp it.

    North Korea is a Democratic appendage of China (Democratic People's Republic of Korea or DPRK): "The Democratic People's Republic of Korea is a genuine workers' state in which all the people are completely liberated from exploitation and oppression." north korea.PNG www.korea-dpr.com North Korea branded itself as a socialist country but it is actually a communist dictatorship. Politics of North Korea - Wikipedia

    South Korea.PNG South Korea is allied with the United States a constitutional republic (Republic of Korea or ROK). South Korea took the brand of being a republic based on capitalistic system with three branches of government. Politics of South Korea - Wikipedia

    For those who do not desire to read and prefer to look at pictures I snipped a few to make it easier to just get to the basics of the difference between the two systems.

    Democrat is a noun. A member of the Democratic party.

    Democratic is an adjective. In this case meaning "pertaining to the Democratic party".. which is what Democrats belong to.

    Better now?

    Is that your explanation for why they have become fascist of late supported oppressive government like Iran has?

    Perhaps ding will describe for us how socialism leads to communism. He does such a great job of it.

    A Democrat is a member of the Democrat party.

    Democratic is a principle that the Democrat party has abandoned.



    I hope that helps.

    Well they sure have moved their goalposts in the last 30 years. And the little trip with Obama at the helm and his lackies I do not believe has been a big improvement for them. How did we get two former communist in leadership positions in our highest law enforcement agencies?


    Did You Know Comey Was a Communist? No I did not know that until yesterday.

    Why was this one ever given his position and security clearance? Mark Levin: How Did A Communist Like Brennan Get A Security Clearance? Trump Should Pull More Clearances

    Socialism doesn't lead to communism. Socialism leads to dictatorship and death.Communism is nothing more than a utopian dream.
    Communism has never happened in the modern world.

    I tend to agree with you to a certain point but the ignorant masses seem to think that they can reach Utopia here on earth (in the valley of...) when they are fooled into believing the crap some of the slick talkers come up with "for their own good".
