9. Yes and no, they are still here, but the Moderate Republicans of the 70's thru 90's are now called

Third Way Democrats.

The simply responded to the invitations of Rahm Emmanuel and others when the Republican party started their purges.
We invited them, they took us up on it, and now run our party....

Unfortunately.


I still vote Democrat but I realize that the policy will be adaptations of vintage Heritage Foundation and US Chamber of commerce now, I guess it beats the hell out of the fascist Dominionist party now called Republicans, but to a guy my age they really are just vintage "moderate" Republicans out for the same campaign money from big bussiness that they have allways been before.

I really miss the Democratic party I grew up with. We really need them now but they are an ignored voice marginalized within the newly usurped version of my party.

Still better than fundy fascists, but not what we need, we need classic Democrats.
I suppose we must go with the least fucked up option, and so I for one still support them, even if they are just re-branded moderate Republicans.

I suppose this post is against the rules now, but it is none the less true and should be considered.
