  1. There’s no doubt in my mind that Democrats are ideological. I just wish that they were more consistent and had a more solid intellectual foundation for their ideologies.

      The Democrats lack a consistent ideology because they are the party of reaction in the United States. I know it sounds strange, but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t make perfect sense.

Please keep it civil
