I want to here from the people that lean left and have or will vote democrat..another socialist,Ayanna Pressley, unseated another long-term democrat in Massachusetts.

Is the Democratic party embracing socialism?...How do you you feel about this trend?

I do not lean to one part or another, but usually judge each candidate based on what I believe. That said, nationally I think the democratic party is split into. One side is very left, the other is pro-business left. Remember.. Obama and Clinton initially supported the Trans Pacific trading agreement. The democrats, especially in the northeast, now seemed squarely pegged on domestic issues, among them redistribution of wealth and government supplied health care. Otherwise, they are for whatever Trump abhors, and hate what he is pleased with. Look at the senate hearing for the supreme court. A lot of democratic grandstanding, and protestors reportedly funded by the DNC.

This Mob-Mentality that is happening with liberals needs to be toned down a lot or something really bad is going to happen.  Conservatives have not been angels, but the things that are happening and apparently escalating is cause for everyone to be concerned.  Getting in peoples faces in restaurants, burning up a guys Truck for have pro-trump stickers, Antifa people block traffic in Portland harassing people, shooting congressmen playing baseball…

What is happening right now not to mention the Kavanaugh fiasco is going to run voters away from the democratic party to either vote GOP, Third part or not vote.

Hell Eric Holder told people to not listening to Michelle Obama’s call for a non-violent approach..he is basically telling people to riot/intimidate in so many words.

When is one these protesters going to get into the wrong person’s face and they get the crap beat out of them or shot?..When that event happens then what happens after that?

This 2 year temper tantrum because Trump won has got to stop.  Instead of rallying the troops to take over both house of Congress, which that had a chance of doing, the Senate looks safe and the House is going to be close.  If the Dems took over Congress, Trump would have been neutralized to a large degree.

How long to you thing that edgy people that align themselves as conservatives are going to retaliate by getting ton Democratic politicians face’s a restaurants using bully tactics?

I really hope things tone down, but as long as these extreme elements are the ones getting the face time I do worry.

Both sides have extremist types.  Didn’t some old guys take over a DNR facility in Oregon DNR office to make a stand against the Dems?  How many rape victims have had to push their way through antiabortion mobs for the last few decades?  How many times have we heard about Texas wanting to secede?  2 year tantrum?  Try an 8 year tantrum from the Cons when Obama was in office.  They were still bitching about his birth certificate 8 years later. 

If they break a law they got to jail, simple as that.  If it’s not illegal to block a road it should be.  There should be a standard operating procedure to mace them and jail them for anyone blocking a road protesting. 

Play stupid games win stupid prizes.  Works for both sides.

Lets see…Charleston, Charlottesville, Louisville, pipe bombs (which your pals on the radio tried to claim was fake before it ended up literally being a Trumpster stereotype), and now Pittsburgh…

But yeah, the Democrats need to tone it down. You guys have lost all grip on reality.

Don’t worry, the immigrant herd is coming turn you gay and transgendered. Oh and they are gonna make you have an abortion. Trump says so.
