    Default Why do you suppose...

    ...so many that used to post here, that either self-indentified, as democrats, liberals, independents. Or were identified as such...by others, have ceased to post. JD

    Because, in general like yourself, they had little of value to offer the forum . & were called out on that .

    here is my take on the matter....those that supported the Democratic platform supported the Clintonesque years, when the country did well..the Democratic Party of today is something that they probably have a tough time giving their all to..in their heart of hearts they are Democrats but the American spirit and patriotism in them make it difficult to support the current admin

    I would say this is pretty close. M&K's answer may not be too far off either. I can't see how anyone that voted for this guy can honestly think they made a good choice. The ones that do still support him either do it to save face or just plain don't know any better. Bottom line, he is a horrible president. That's putting it nicely.

    I think a lot of them gave up on attempting any meanful debate with a bunch of NeoCons. Just look at the vast majority of responses from the Neos. Usually, one or two sentences with nothing but insults for different opinions. Mainly because they can not articulate a defense of thier own position. There is even a revolt within the GOP between the big government/big spending crony capitalist NeoCon Repubs that supported Romney and his plan to grow the deficit by 5-7 Trillion and those that truely want limited government!
