I responded to your comment "The reality is that the Dems are just as......


guilty of pandering to their base by offering up fiction" as the Trump Republican party. I don't believe Obama or Hillary made a practice of constantly lying, exaggerating and making impossible promises to the Democratic base as Trump has made a living doing. And again, I'm not going to pass judgement on the Democratic platform until we have a better understanding of specifics. I'll be the first - okay, maybe one of the first - to criticize the Democrats if their party adopts a socialist bent and pressures moderates to get on board or leave just like the Tea Party forced out many solid GOP moderates. Clearly, the Democrats have a similar problem as Republicans regarding party platforms. There's a fine line between satisfying the hard core left or right during the primaries and winning a more centrist general election.
