Disclosure: I am an Indy - not affiliated with either duopoly. Definitely in the Green/Dem-socialist/Poor Peoples Campaign:A National Call for Moral Revival - circle of political and non-political Movement(s) Used to be a Green, then Dem, then Green, ten Dem, then finally Green.
The split Dem party gets erroneously called JUST Dems without any mention of this glaring 50-50 split. I’m not singling you, S77. In the CD comment posts alone, let alone MSM, ALL the Repubs and half of the public still use Dem as though it were like the wholesale sell-outs of the Repub politicians.
To label or assume Dems who run for office as a monolithic block is not accurate. Dems are not at all, alike - like virtually all Repubs, who vote like they were attached at the hip. All office-holding Repubs at the state level and above are corporate shills for the ruling class - but for a handful, like 2 or 3, maybe 4 or 5 out of a thousand. Repubs running for office mix lies and truths like Chef Julia Child could toss salads with her eyes closed.
The Dems are of two equally split camps (or wings). The corporate elites who would be just happy just as Repubs, but if corrupting the Dems wasn’t so much fun! (My opinion-lol). So these Dem-corporate elites are happy to see the current individual in the Oval Office, as long as “they” get their money and efin tough luck for Poor like myself.
Soooooo. Bernie and about half of the Democratic National Committee, who is/are the Dem Party right now, in a moral sense, for all practical purposes is the moral wing of the Dems. The other half is of the amoral, that the corrupted elites like - the wrong-doers; like the DNC Chair, like the two-faced politicians who have been in office too long: Schumer, Pelosi and that NY dude who just lost his primary in a landslide to a moral, non-corporate “progressive.”
