right. there was a realignment of the parties, which started in the early 60's.A shit storm from the left calling for an uncontrolled slide into socialism/communism has required a shit storm from the right. His name is Trump.
I don't see anyone in the Democrat camp who are the Democrats I followed in the 60s. The Democrat party changed so radically that I had to leave. I have no place fr the old Dems anymore. They failed to take their party back like they tried to tell us they were going to do. All we're seeing today is a replay of what the Dems did in the 60s n the Republican party. What I see is a strong agreement in the Republican party now that was not in evidence in the Dems when they flipped.
Not exactly on topic but my move out of Calif in 2002 and traveling the country and settling in what's considered a swing state has really opened my eyes to the reality of the true political nature of the country.
basically today's Republicans are yesterday's Dems, and vice-versa
however, Republicans used to be able to at least claim to be conservatives, and the party of morals and values, and that's flown out the window now with trump.
your post is agreeable, minus the first sentence. it's completely off base. and you even point at the true underlying reason with the second part of your post.
