Words mean something - the importance of using correct terminology

231 Views
Message 41 of 45

Ronald Reagan was a Republican, but in today's GOP, he would probably never have a shot at being elected. Reagan believed in working with the other party to come up with a bill which benefits all Americans. He was also mainstream.

 

Today's Republican Party looks at compromise as an ugly word. Today's Republican Party no longer puts America first, they put party first.

 

Today's Republican Party ignores facts, the truth, and lives in an alternate reality. This is probably the scariest element of being a Republican today.

j868138h,

 

"Democratic party definition. One of the two major political parties in the United States; the Democrats. The origins of the Democrats are in the Democratic-Republican party, organized by Thomas Jefferson in the late eighteenth century; the first president elected simply as a Democrat was Andrew Jackson."

 

I am with rk321, a Republican who will objectively use actual facts to form opinions.

So please, when referring to or talking about it, call it what it is: The Democrat Party and NOT, NEVER the DEMOCRATIC party as that lends a legitimacy to them that is no longer (if ever it was) applicable.

 

John Kennedy - perhaps the last middle of the road Democrat - could not survive in today's Democrat party...Imagine, if you will, a Democrat candidate standing before his multitude of followers and stating "Ask not what your country can do for you, rather ask what you can do for your country."  That candidate would today, be run out of town on a rail and summarily dismissed.

 

The objective of the Democrats (and the AARP surrogates) is to enroll as many people as possible in every possible government entitlement program so as to create a level of dependency that will require voting Democrat so as to retain the benefits, among them WIC, Welfare, Food Stamps or Snap, public housing, Medicaid, free lunch Obama phones or tablets, etc. etc.

 

Replacing individual liberty and freedom of choice in schools, religion, etc. is the long-term goal of the Democrats.


Since you want to insist that people must use the correct terminology please use the correct term when referring to the Democratic Party.

The importance of using the correct terminology, I agree with that statement. but we haven't seen that in this Administration . unless you want to tell us that "alternative facts"  are the correct terminology for untruths.
By the way, I am not a Democrat, never been, I am a Republican, that actually thinks. 
Will not agree with what is happening today in this Administration, will not agree with the path that is taking this country.
And that still makes me a Republican, not a Democrat and not Liberal.  If I don't conform to many posters  way of thinking. too bad. I am a person that sees things perhaps in a diferent light. and intelligent light. not a partisan light. I am a thinking Republican and very proud of it.
