    Fully 2 years since The Atlantic published the following article and nearly 3 since Clinton's humiliating defeat, and the party today seems even less connected to our working class ("deplorables"), American symbols & traditions, or even reality.

    What’s Wrong With the Democrats?

    But liberals’ fears were softened in 2016 by a widely shared belief: that the candidacy of Donald Trump would shatter the Republican Party, at least in the form in which we had long known it. His trail of wreckage would force a painful reckoning with the party’s shortcomings—the narrowness of its coalition, the cloistered cluelessness of its elites, its intramural disagreements about the future of the nation. After a season of Trump’s destruction, the party would lie in rubble.

    On November 8, that prophecy was realized, true in every regard, except that it described the Democrats. On Inauguration Day, the party’s power ebbed to its lowest level since the 1920s.

    They have become something that should never have been permitted here.

    Let's see if we understand this. You apparently think posting a bunch of stuff about Trump and his ego is a substantive response to a thread about the self-inflicted wounds of the democrats.

    Why would you think that? Are you really so insecure in your support of your apparent party that you can't even handle sound criticism?

    Thing is, The Atlantic is leftist so it couldn't have been pleasant to author or publish that article but even lefties must occasionally deal with the truth.

    The truth remains that rather than try to return to sanity, the party has just slid further down the rabbit hole.

    The primary problem with the Democrat Party is that it's full of Democrats, get rid of all of them and it would be a perfectly peachy organization.

    Your "God" doesn't exist, and his bullshit "son" bilked 5k out of "everything," lost all of it, and ended up on a cross....
