Interesting take here on the numerous otherwise-decent people who still vote for the Democrat Party. I have long contended than many, perhaps even most, people who continue to support the Democrat Party, now more correctly called the Democrat Socialist Party, do so out of habit and not paying sufficient attention to today’s world.
Or paying attention to the wrong news sources.
Dave Morrison, a Los Angeles-area musician, house painter and YouTube whiz, was a Democrat until the 2012 presidential election. I was a Democrat till four years earlier, so Dave is a little slower than I am. He was a Democrat for, I suspect, the same reasons I was, family tradition and ignorance of the Democrat Party’s true history.
He makes a case here that many Democrats, especially middle-aged and older folks, are victims of a sort of Stockholm Syndrome. He makes his case politely and sensibly.
He is a forgiving soul.
