it also states near the bottom the platform will be updated in 2020. We who are NOT GOP like much of what the platform was in 2016 going forward, sorry to disappoint you.

Perfect.  I point out that democrats have no platform to run on.  They have NOTHING to offer voters so, consequently, can only attack Trump personally.  And the response? 

 

One person, who OBVIOUSLY has no idea what the dems platform is, tries to cover it up by saying all they, "want to talk about is what a moron Trump is."  Thank you for proving my case.

 

And the other person gives me a reference to what he purports to be a great platform which, in reality, is the DNC 2016 platform (AS IT PLAINLY STATES) they used to lose the election.

 

Thanks for reminding me why this site is a waste of time.

"No platform"?  Wow, I guess Trump is not the only Republican who cannot read. 

 

I do a fair amount of door to door canvassing for the Democrats and have a tough time telling folks about the party platform because all they want to talk about is what a moron Trump is.  Maybe that is where you get the idea there is no platform.

The Problem facing Democrats

Message 75 of 75

I looked through a few pages to see if I could find something interesting and it struck me that all the titles from the left were basically the same.  Below is a sample.  They all attack Trump and I could not find one single thread that said anything about what the left has to offer voters.  In fact, the ONLY thing I've seen recently from the left that actually says why someone should vote for them came Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who wants to "abolish ICE, have Medicare for all, a federal jobs guarantee and housing as a human right."  A losing platform for sure.  As Margaret Thatcher once said, "The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money."  Even if taxes could be raised enough to pay for everything socialists want, as soon as  happens the wealthy will take their money out of the country and the country will be worse off with no way to recover.  Of course, little Alexandria is quite young and has a lot to learn.  As the old saying goes, "If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart.  If you’re not a conservative by the time you’re 35, you have no brain."

So what do you do when you have no platform and nothing to offer voters?  Apparently the answer is attack Trump personally in hopes no one sees through the nonsense or care about actual results.  Surprise!  People are smarter than liberals think they are.
