Why Democrats need a liberal alternative?

It is not something that will divide the Party - it is something that will grow the Party.

A Party's participation is about message, as it is about money and polls. Democrats need a message that will connect with the people. Begging for money, in order to compete with the Republicans, over the social media network, is not the way to do it. The Republican majority, in the House and Senate, has grown to dangerous and extreme numbers. Simply because they do not know how to govern. Our country is not safe in their hands. We, as a people, must get our allies to the polls.

That is why it is imperative that Democrats have an alternative voice. We need the debate - an honest debate - about the ideas which our Party stands for. Candidates such as Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Martin O'Malley, Sheldon Whitehouse, and others, should be encouraged to run for President. It would be the best for our Party and our country. We need rational and intelligent citizens representing us in Washington. Those that are "anti-government" are not usually very good at running our government. They are drawn to the darkside. They want to legislate their extreme minority views upon the rest of us. They are not inclined to protect our land, our water, or the air we breathe. It is time to put education, knowledge, intelligence, and science, back into good standing.
