It is secret in that while the democratic heads know it full well, most of their supporters do not. The democratic party of today is not what it was even a decade ago. It is now a DIVISIVE way of running the country based on the idea of TRIBALISM. The democrats are no longer an ideological party but instead, promote an IDENTITY POLITICS (everyone is part of a subgroup). The goal is no longer a common goal for all but achieving power to win the spoils for a given subgroup at the expense of all the others pitting each group against the other. There is no arguing with them, no winning an argument ever; just victory or defeat for that group. It isn’t about right or wrong, good or bad for the country, just winning. America was based on the idea of diverse unity---- that out of the many, we united to become one. That is what makes America strong. Many immigrants coming here to all be Americans, 50 states all uniting to be one great nation. This is the basic tenet of the Conservative. But the Democratic Party has become just the opposite today: They see the nation as being out of One comes MANY. Many separate, small, subgroups all divided and fighting. To be a democrat is to think you have somehow been wronged and are after some sort of equity. They usually identify the GOP or opposing party as the cause of their inequity. Worse, it isn’t up to you to get it, earn it, make it or create the equity for yourself but it must be somehow imposed on another group by force and taken from them to be given back to you! Progressives don’t want to argue because they never think they are wrong. No argument: they just want to win. The Left of today doesn’t believe our traditions are noble or worth preserving, anything old must simply be destroyed, including basic institutions. Family, free speech, religion, and the rule of law are all under attack. The Left no longer even tries to hide it! They cannot even acknowledge the legitimacy of any government action they do not agree with. Identity Politics leads to hate, anger and violence rather than unity, and violence is what separates politics from war. The Democratic party is transitioning from an ideological body, to a tribal identity with hatred, intolerance and violence as their tools, which is leading the country from a nation of laws to civil war where eventually, the nation will no longer be governable. Once government breaks down completely into total anarchy, it is their intention at top to replace it with not a democracy, but a ruling oligarchy with them in total control! Trump’s getting elected has dealt them a huge setback they were not expecting. The sad part is that once achieved, those who supported and fought for the democratic party and their alleged goals of “forced equity” will be both the most surprised by and harmed at the true outcome!
