The Republican Party is the party of civil rights and the four F’s: faith, family, freedom and fairness.
The Democratic Party is the party of the four S’s: slavery, secession, segregation and socialism (Quote By Author Michael Scheuer).

This ‘Resistance’ Is No Tea Party
Remember Christine O’Donnell? The Democratic left is trying
to emulate her.
By Kimberley A. Strassel
The question is how this accomplishes the progressive aim of an electoral wave
that puts it back in power—a la tea-party conservatives. The left is banking
that Mr. Trump and Republicans will blow this historic moment, and the public
will revolt. That’s certainly possible. What’s less possible is that North
Dakota voters—even if they are really mad at Mr. Trump—will vote to put an
Elizabeth-Warren-like progressive in the Senate.
Democrats might also remember another woman from 2010: Blanche Lincoln. The
two-term Democratic senator from Arkansas caused liberal hysteria in 2009 when
she chose to reflect her voters and spoke out against both the public option
for health care and a pro-union measure called card check. Left-wing Democrats
pummeled her back home and subjected her to a grueling primary. She won that
primary, only to lose to Republican John Boozman in a landslide. Even an
unsuccessful progressive tea party could be deadly for Democrats.
The original tea party was about making conservatives in this center-right
country act like conservatives again.

The progressive tea party is about making
Democrats in this center-right country act like Bernie Sanders. Have at it.
