Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

I love the democratic party! Democrats are not corrupt.

In this primary season I am seeing a lot of young, mostly male but some female politicians or blue twitter check marks calling democrats corrupt. They argue that taking money from corporation, billionaires etc... means they're owned or corrupt. Democrats are not corrupt. We are no where near what republicans are, not even close. I'm sure there are a few here and there that have acted in bad faith but for the most part democrats are the party we should be proud of. Democrats have some pretty big accomplishments to be proud of. We make mistakes, some mistakes are big mistakes but if you want progress you have to fight, you have to get your hands dirty, sometimes that means bad votes but at least you're getting something done. If there are democrats who have never had a bad vote but also never enacted meaningful legislation what good is that? What good is it to keep your hands clean if you're not getting anything enacted into law?

Listen, lets look at the people who are constantly saying bad things about our party. What is the their purpose? What are their intentions? Republicans are the minority, they have to do a lot of shady things to win and that includes putting money out to people who have a platform that sow division within us. I'm not saying criticism can not be genuine and in good faith. I'm saying look at who they align themselves with. If they're bashing democrats while taking money from conservative groups or people, be skeptical. If they're bashing democrats and not rejecting outside influence in their campaign, be skeptical. Be especially skeptical if they have a history of voting in what could be viewed as friendly to nations like Russia, Turkey, China or others and not rejecting their help. View this as a wink and a nod.

We have to be vigilant in these times.

1. That's their word "corrupt".. Projecting it on

 

to True Blue Dems.

They're soooo Obvious.

And, Moderate Dems are the reasons we have #45IMPEACHED. Just in case anybody dares call them "corporatist".

2. Don't forget, there's a "democratic" candidate that throws that word around frequently, too.

 

It's funny how when someone finds him/herself behind he/she begins to claim those ahead of him/her are "corrupt".

It's getting exhausting.

9. Still waiting for examples of this imaginary corruption. Never comes.

 

Too many people have no common sense. Republicans are 100% corrupt at this point. It's like walking into a room where there's a lion and a kittycat and being worried about the kitty.

12. Exactly!

 

That is because they are listening to talk radio types who told them the kitty is more dangerous than the lion. They say it repeatedly, often and eventually they believe it.
