    Oh... Holy Hell, I have done it now... Boasted to know something that I may have no clue about.

    It just makes sense to me that Democrats stay the minority because without being the minority (which is also forever being redefined) there would be less passion to be liberal and passionately active, which are the Democrat trademarks.

    They have very important roles to fulfill and should not underestimated or disregarded.

    Would anyone care to post something that I (and others) should be made well aware of since I obviously don't know much about the political arena?

    Perhaps I should have better worded my post obviously... Jillian seems a little clueless as to what I was referring to when I invited political postings to help me (and others) be better informed about the roles of the Democratic party.

    Jillian, darling, the more nutty I am and/or become... the more fitting I'd be for politics, because according to many it is those who are successfully considered psychopaths that are accomplished politicians. However, thank you for your response, princess.

    If the platform of the Democratic Party is based on statist ideals, I agree with you. Irrespective of party, statist ideals are bad for the USA.

    We were founded as a constitutional republic, that has worked well for us, and we should stay that way.

    That party needs to jettison those ideals, if they are even able to realize that those ideals have become an identifying quality of them. I'm no longer sure that is the case. There are even some in the GOP.

    It's a terminal disease on our political system and on our way of life.

    I don't know, Si, it seems that the reason so many want to perhaps do away with the constitution is that it limits just how statist 'we' can become as a nation. Am I wrong?

    I think I see what you are trying to say.
    It should be said this way, that Socialists should be in the minority because they are.
    The majority of this nation is conservative and moderate.
    Socialists and the far left have taken over the Democratic party with no balance in the party any longer.
    Especially in 2009 and 2010.
    Harry Reid is doing the same thing that that Pelosi did, not allowing the voice of the moderates or conservatives in their party to vote their own ideology or the voice of the people they represent.

    I don't know if they have verbalized that they actually want to do away with the Constitution (well, Obama did verbalize his thoughts that he is not a fan of it), but actions speak louder than words.

    The Constitution is self-protecting against violating our founding tenets. For those who value those tenets, they need to remember to follow the Constitution. So, for those who do not value it, it seems reasonable to assume that they do not value our founding tenets. And, those tenets protect us from statism.

    So, it does make one wonder.

    Yes you are.
    The Constitution is the only thing that is keeping in check the people in this country that want us to become communists and Marxists. Call it whatever you want to, but they want the Government to control everything.
    This is why they are pushing to get rid of it.
