During the Reagan years I was a Democrat Precinct Committeeman in the Seattle area. One time in a friendly debate with the GOP Precinct Committeeman, he challenged me as to the differences between a Republican and a Democrat.
“We have this pie. The Republicans are all about how the pie is distributed, who gets what. The Democrats are all about making sure there is a pie”.
Fast forward to the present where the Democrat Party has been hijacked by the (P)regressives. I would change definitions.
“The Republicans haven’t changed. The (P)regressives say it is our pie, and we will decided who gets what. Your input, your desires, aren’t welcome. You just keep making the pie”.
Why do I say President Trump is a Democrat? What other politician is making sure there is pie?
Do you think the Jeb! Elephants voted for Trump?
Do you think conservative Democrats voted for Shillary?
Trump got voted in by Democrats and the policies he is pushing are traditional Democrat policies, IMO. YMMV
