It seems the new democrat (socialist on verge of communist) deep down wants a dictator ala Chavez, Castro, Lenin, Stalin etc. It worried me with the 2008 Hope bumper sticker with onlyhis image, now the Florida Democratic party created this awesome flag. If you want that style of leadership feel free to pack up your Prius and move to South America.
New style that lean towards socialism and communism. Not Zell Miller Democrat.
Sadly, I doubt many people these days would understand that distinction, or even describe who Zell is.
Even sadder, a lot of these conservative Democrats (i.e., Ben Nelson) are going the way of conservative Republicans--increasingly extinct. Used to be that you could count on a coalition of conservative Democrats and the mainstream GOP to get things done. Now, every party goes by the "spend-spend-spend" mantra, the only question is on WHAT. Every party believes in government, the only question is in WHICH sector they want intervention.
