    I expect more polarization this fall.....

    But Trump does quite well with "Independents" according to the polls. What the left media now call right-wing extremism was centrist just a few decades ago!
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    What a bunch of quitters.

    Moving the Party of Slavery to the left leaves a trail of people who thought of themselves as moderate Democrats in their wake. Much like the Blue Dogs got left behind in 2009. Will these isolated Democrats still go vote the donkey? I'm sure some will but probably in smaller numbers than in 2016. Some might stay home. Some might vote the elephant or another party.

    Nope the Communists will win big in November. Take it to the bank.

    People always want the other guy's ox gored but their own ox left alone. While the new tax cut for example was good for a lot of people myself included, a lot of Trump supporters had their own ox gored. They will turn Communist in November. How much is anybody's guess but I think big.

    All elections are local and people always vote for their own self-interest.

    And that is the rub. What is their "self-interest"?

    Educated Americans, since the dawn of the Republic, understood their "self-interest" lay in minimal government, Rule of Law, and individual liberty.

    The ignorant and savage and corrupt...any of those or all of those...think their self-interest lie in Free Shit. A slightly-higher mindset is that their self-interest lie in the officeholder being of their own tribe...Italians; or Congregationalists; or a woman; or someone who matches the voter on the Color-Chip Test.

    Those are uneducated; have no idea what government is for or what their own true self-interest lie. Those were the kinds of people who were intended to be KEPT OUT of elections. Because those kinds of people tend to be shiftless and with criminal records and often-times drunken or addicted.

    But we've now extended the vote to the shiftless and asset-free; to the transient; now to children and non-citizens. And of COURSE we work to get EVERYONE of a minority hue, and EVERYONE with a racialist or tribalist mindset, into the polling stations.

    That is WHY the nature of the government has changed so dramatically...since the Reign of Bubba.

    After sitting around feeling butt-and boo-hooing because Crooked Hillary had fixed the Democratic nomination process last year, it looks like the Bernie Bros (and sistahs) are doing something about it.
    They pummeled the Party Establishment Tuesday night.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.47ee849e34d8
    quoth the link:
    “reflects a broader leftward lurch among Democrats across the country since President Trump took office.…”

    “Kara Eastman, 45, beat former congressman Brad Ashford, 68, in an Omaha-area district that national Democrats believed they could pick up in November. … Ashford had the full-throated support of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which must now reevaluate whether to invest in the race.”

    “In Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, early front-runner John Morganelli — a district attorney who has been locally prominent for decades — lost the primary to attorney Susan Wild, who ran at him from the left. Morganelli, who opposes abortion rights and “sanctuary cities,” was attacked relentlessly on the airwaves for speaking positively about Trump and tweeting that he was open to taking a job in the administration during the transition.”

    “In the Philadelphia suburbs, centrist Rachel Reddick — a 33-year-old Navy veteran endorsed by Emily’s List — lost the Democratic primary to take on Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R) after “proud progressive” Scott Wallace ran ads attacking her for being a registered Republican until 2016. Wallace, 66, is the grandson of Henry Wallace, who was Franklin Roosevelt’s vice president for a term and then ran against Harry Truman, who FDR dumped him for, from the far left in 1948.”

    “…John Fetterman — a small-town mayor with a bristly beard and tattoos on both of his arms — toppled Pennsylvania’s incumbent lieutenant governor, Mike Stack, thanks in part to the strong endorsement of Bernie Sanders…”

    “In the Pittsburgh area, two card-carrying members of the Democratic Socialists of America topped incumbent state representatives in Democratic primaries with 65 percent and 68 percent of the vote, respectively.”

    “In Idaho’s Democratic gubernatorial primary, Paulette Jordan defeated business owner and Boise school board member A.J. Balukoff, who had the backing of most of the state’s political establishment.”

    “In the much bluer state of Oregon, liberals toppled an entrenched Democratic incumbent in the state Senate. Sen. Rod Monroe got crushed 62 percent to 25 percent by civil rights attorney Shemia Fagan. A Somali immigrant who works as a community organizer got another 13 percent of the vote.” (Taxcutter says: Looks like the damned Somalis are taking over the Party of Slavery more quickly than we thought)

    “In a state House primary, the establishment favorite – a county commissioner who was endorsed by the retiring representative – lost to a child welfare worker after he said the state of Oregon should consider requiring employees to contribute into the public pension fund. The stakes are high because Democrats can achieve three-fifths supermajorities with just one additional seat in both the House and the Senate, which would let them raise taxes with no Republican votes.”


    Taxcutter says:
    Dick Lugar could tell the Democratic Establishment what is happening.

    Now that Crooked Hillary has been discredited, your Hard Left populists are kicking you to the curb. Just as they did in 1972.

    What will the two parties’ Establishments do when they both find themselves in the political wilderness? Will they then deign to listen to their erstwhile bases?

    Can you envision Bush family acolytes and Clinton Foundation stooges sitting around trying to figure out what happened?
