I love the democratic party! Democrats are not corrupt. [View all]

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.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
