  •  US freedoms r 2 much for some ppl to handle well. (0+ / 0-)

    Alcohol, drugs, poor decisions, bad family upbringing, abuse, poor education, lack of role models, over-marketing of sex and violence, poverty, crime, lack of discipline, bad nutrition, etc.

    There's a vast underclass in the US, and neither deregulation nor less-government, lower taxes, or privatization are going to help them. The scariest words since Reagan are: "I'm with the private sector and I'm here to help." (Neither is socialism the answer, that's a GOP red-herring.)

    Our underclass needs strong, disciplined government programs. Rigorous education at world-class standards (in S.T.E.A.M.). Law enforcement in poor areas.

    Compare the USA's trajectory to rising countries worldwide -- it's not encouraging.

    Democrats need to stay focused on the biggest, most-important issues, imho, and not get sidetracked by the cultural issues that rile up some of our base (or the GOP'S base).

    •  I disagree (0+ / 0-)

      We very much need to stay focused on those social issues.

      Neither is there a "vast underclass" ... Simply a large group of hard-working families who are not being treated appropriately.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.
