The Democrats have always been their own worst enemy in elections. 

All the 'perfect people' in the Democrat Party with their purity test, end up doing the Republican job of seriously tainting major Democrat candidates: because back in 1974 this person said... or this person voted... or this person was inappropriate... and they don't stand up to my pure standards.   

So, fuck you.

It is find to choose one candidate over another.   It is fine to have an opinion on your choice of Democrat candidate.   It is fine to have an opinion on who can beat Trump; but if you pick something a candidate did, or said, or some indiscretion that happened back forty years ago and make it the focus of a purity rant: you are aiding the Republican candidate.   

Sure, Pick a candidate.  Support a candidate.   But knock off tearing down your candidates opponent on purity grounds. 

The focus should be on beating Donald Trump; not electing your specific candidate by damaging opponents.

  1. The idea is "Vote Blue No Matter Who."

  2. That's a great song -- I've never heard it before!

  3. This is also pushed by the Trump propaganda machine. Am convinced they even register as Democrats to push the candidate least likely to win against Trump.

  4. No matter how imperfect any democrat is, they are all vastly better than Trump. Hell, half the people on the street are a better choice.

  5. Is it a purity test to point out a candidate's thoroughly racist background or their previous horrible voting record if they're now claiming to be something completely different? Or is it fact checking?

  6. Democrats aren't called "dems" for nothin - They think with their hearts, not their heads. Our Country is at stake folks! There's time for idology after we elect a Democrat!
