I can see why you would be upset. The Democratic Party is becoming quite radical (My government professor described radicals as individuals with political beliefs that are to the left of liberals).
Radicals are on the opposite side of what is called reactionaries. He said reactionaries want to return to the way it use to be while radicals want to destroy all traditions and create new. A reactionary might want to return to the Constitution, and a radical would like to rewrite the Constitution.
Bill Clinton sided with pro-abortion proponents, but he described abortion as something that should be seldom used. Clinton never condemned Democrats opposed to abortion.
The new Democratic National Chairman is moving the party farther left of Clinton. He says that Democrats unwilling to accept abortion on demand (even in the late term), cannot be a Democrat.
His words......."Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman's right to make her own choices about her body and her health," DNC Chair Perez said, as the HuffPost reported. "That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state." His comments came after Democrats officially supported a pro-life Democrat against a Republican, against his wishes.
The Democrats are now the radical party of intolerance.
There are still a few moderate Democrats, and I can see their concern.
By the way, I was involved with the Democratic Party until I told them I was pro-life. They let me know I was not welcome.
Many Mexican Catholics could not vote for Wendy Davis (Abbot ended up with close to 40% of the latino vote). Even with the controversy over the wall, Democrats will not be able to woo Latinos with a party moving left.
I understand the need for Democrats to hide their intolerance.
Liberalism is becoming a synonym for intolerance. Read the News !!!
My reading of the news shows no shortage of intolerance from either side.
My joke has always been I am not republican or democrat, I am a catholic.
Trying to find a candidate that is 100% consistent with my Catholicism is impossible. It is always a compromise.
That said, and fyi since nixon's second term I have voted Republican with the exception of Jimmy Carter ( a navy thing) and independent in the last election.
My point in the link, is contrary to the O/P there are, has been, and will continue to be pro life democrats. And if they decide, for whatever reason to support democratic candidates they will gladly take their votes.
I'm not questioning that you are sincere. But, I have seen the intolerance of Democrats toward the pro-life stance. And, it has become glaring with the election of the DNC chair. He has brought to the spotlight what has been hidden for many years.
What got me involved in the Democratic party was a belief (many years before Obama) that they (Democrats) would bring socialized medicine (Which I have always championed).
My wife and I both leaned toward the Democratic Party. But the Democrats do seem to be much stricter ideologs. If you do not agree with everything they preach, you are not welcome.
