While the Democratic Party continues to pin its hopes and its future on the increasingly obvious fiction of Trump-Russia collusion, the mask that fakes consequential difference between the two major parties in the United States continues to slip. Behind it is a rat’s nest of self-interest, corruption and entitlement that is breathtaking.
Sure, the DNC’s brand is “more liberal” but in all practical aspects, its members have their noses well and truly buried in the slush pit that a cabal of moneyed interests offers elected officials of any hue. In fact, the DNC’s hypocrisy seems set to condemn them to years in the wilderness unless substantial change is made. Much and all as “liberals” hate to be told, the Republican party under Trump appear less conflicted and more focused. Where the DNC chooses to differentiate itself, it ties itself in knots and appears incapable of doing basic political maths.
