I don't like whataboutism. So, when I saw a thread about the 8 things the poster knows about you if you're a Trump supporter, I had to start a thread about the alternative. Let me say from the outset that many of the replies in that OP are true. I'm not a Trump supporter. But, these are some things I know about Dems...

1) Most Democrats are loyal to their Party, even if the sorriest POS on earth gets nominated to carry the banner. That wouldn't be so bad, but the Dems end up with a lot of inept people. You have to admit that people like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Ocasio Cortez, and Beto O'Rourke are not the kind of people that could lead a country

2) Democrats could level the charge that Trump supporters have never read the Constitution. That is true. But, if the Dems understand the Constitution so well, how did they mistake a sentence, in a private letter, to constitute a legal principle (speaking of the separation of church and states which does not appear in any legal document our country was founded on)???

3) Democrats ultimately believe in mob rule or mobocracy or majority rule until they lose the vote. THEN they like to invoke the law. If 99 students pray before class and 1 objects, what happens to "democracy?

4) Democrats believe that government, and only government can solve your problems. Then, again, to their credit, they got Donald Trump to assist in the brainwashing idea that might makes right and the government can do whatever it wants - unless it is something that the Dems want and then the Constitution works

5) Democrats disavow every core principle upon which this country was founded. I used to believe that if ain't froke don't bix it. It is almost hilarious, however to see how the Dems trained the Republicans to give lip service to our core values and then trip all over themselves to pacify the left when the Republicans get shamed with some exaggerated version of the way things were and are.

As we approach the end of the Republic, it should be noted that Americans are living fewer years, are less affluent, enjoy fewer Liberties, have more people incarcerated than any nation on the globe, more people on mind altering drugs than any nation in the world and we depend on foreign countries for everything we own. MAGA was a silly proposition... we're going to pass more laws, create more restraints on the Constitution and that is going to make us great again. Silly me. I was advocating repealing laws until we got back to that point when America was truly great. That's what I know about the Democrats. The rest of what I know might be discussed later.

Democrats, as a rule, are less likely to vote as a monolithic group. The Eleventh Commandment applies to Republicans (cf. Reagan). Historically, Southern Democrats differed profoundly from Northern groups on issues of civil rights, among other issues. Republicans have lost almost all their moderates. Recently, several Democratic representatives voted against the impeachment hearings; no Republicans voted for the hearings. You have entirely mischaracterized the Democratic Party (recall what Will Rodgers said about it). Finally, ANY of those individuals listed could function as president. Nearly ALL have more education, a legal familiarity and political background that is far better than Trump.

A confused post. On the basis of the First Amendment, one can argue that the guv'mint should not be involved with supporting ANY church.

3) Democrats ultimately believe in mob rule or mobocracy or majority rule until they lose the vote. THEN they like to invoke the law. If 99 students pray before class and 1 objects, what happens to "democracy?
The Constitution does not protect the majority so far as civil rights are concerned. Civil Rights only are meaningul if the MINORITY is protected. Think about tyranny of the majority before your head explodes with confused self-righteousness.

4) Democrats believe that government, and only government can solve your problems. Then, again, to their credit, they got Donald Trump to assist in the brainwashing idea that might makes right and the government can do whatever it wants - unless it is something that the Dems want and then the Constitution works
More confused rambling. Probably you resent government. Unfortunately, in a sophisticated society, government is the primary force for providing the protections from exploitation that so commonly occur with unbridled capitalism, tyranny of the majority, and the rampant ignornance of much of the population. Left to their own actions, provincial communities would ban books, prevent "offensive" speech, employ vigilantism for justice, impose obstacles against those perceived as different and exploit the vulnerable. So, given the alternatives, the government is the best vehicle for solving social problems.

Absurd generalization and clearly just a expression of uninformed bias. There is a hint of the "good old days" fantasy so common among conservatives who just do not remember Jim Crow, race riots, polio, TB, smoking in public places, smog, lack of seat belts, steel dashboards etc. etc.. All of which were addressed as a result of actions by socially conscious moderates and liberals to improve civil rights and public health.

Time for you to pack it in, I suppose. It is just hopeless, as it has always been when problems confront the "Party of No". The only solution that conservatives have for social problems is to whine about them.

Things I know about you support Dems? WTH? Does anyone want to translate that alphabet soup?
Just the title of the thread tells us all we need to know.
Translated for you: If it is an honest and objective truth about your precious party, then it must be B.S.

Your rambling is reminiscent of reading the crap written by a high school student while under the influence of hard core drugs.

Why worry about the weaknesses of the Democratic Party when there's a traitor in the White House and GOP quislings in Congress?
I was making generalized observations. It is a terrible quandry. We have a POS in the Black House and the Demonrats don't have a candidate that has ever read the Constitution. The Republicans are RINOs; Democrats are socialists. In the last couple of election cycles the country has been basically evenly divided so we're not really getting anywhere.

I take moderate issue with both of these threads as they generalize for flame induction. There are truths to be found in both but neither is true. They also do not address those of us that WERE Republican until being Republican lost the meaning and ideals it once had...we are NOT Dems but are running from this new GOP/Trumpist/Obstruction idiocy. At this point I do not much care what qualifications a Dem has as they get my vote to remove Trump and the "New Republicans" wherever they are. Between McConnel and Trump they have completely poisoned the Swamp.
