In today’s world there is no such thing as a "moderate" Democrat and there is no such thing as "fair" media.
The media is no longer a seeker of equal destruction. There was a time when the media believed it was there duty, no obligation, to investigate any and all in public life. They really did not care to which party the individual belonged. To find any sort of corruption was a feather in their cap. A few things have changed. The media today believes that only those of the right (correct side) should be investigated and those on the left must be protected. Perhaps the most troubling aspect of the new media is that facts and truth no longer apply. Rumors and accusations are reported as fact, no matter how salacious or ridiculous, and then when the lie is or sloppy reporting is revealed, the unfair and prejudiced media redefine the situation and report on an even more preposterous rumor or accusation, perhaps even one they concocted, as fact.
This is damaging to a nation that is supposedly a nation with a free people who are purported to be self-governing. It is damaging because it causes the people to lose faith in the media, in the government, and as opposed to people taking a greater interest, more and more people become uninterested and uninvolved. This type of media is the type of media a tyrant demands because they can plant whatever story they want to plant to control the people. An interested and involved public is mandatory for a free people. An uninterested and uninvolved people are mandatory for a tyrannical government. An unfair and false reporting media always brings about tyranny.
Moderate Democrats no longer exist. A moderate means to be somebody who is not of the extreme. The party that used to be called Democrat, has truly become the Marxist/Progressive party advocating for what would be extreme positions, even in nations that would be considered to be nations with strong leaning collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive – all virtually the same) views, such as most in the European Union.
Today's Democrat party, or Marxist/Progressive party states that in order to be a part of their party you must believe in unrestricted murder of any infant, unborn for sure, and now even after birth. This same party says that the Untied States should not and can not be a nation with borders. Any and all can walk across our borders at any time and once they are here they cannot be deported, they must be shielded from prosecution for any and all crimes they commit or have committed, they must be given welfare, education, and health care and coverage. This is a party that demands all working and responsible Americans sacrifice on a basis that the Marxist/Progressives deem to be fair to redistribute their hard-earned rewards to those who choose not to work or to choose to engage in meaningless activity that has no value. This is a party that demands that the government dictate to all how they are to live their lives and how they are to think. It will be the government that dictates the beliefs of the individual concerning morality, religious, scientific, and social views, and achievement desires.
Fair media and moderate Democrat are truly antiquated terms. Sadly, American Democrat is also a relic. To be an American has been to believe in the principles of our founding documents. The Declaration of Independence states that we will be a nation that not only protects, but promotes our natural rights given to us by our Creator. The Marxist/Progressive today says that natural rights are under the control of the government. The Marxist/Progressive today says they will determine who will live or die, and they say that “choice” overrides the natural right of life. The Marxist/Progressive says that liberty is no longer available because where liberty exists equality cannot. The Marxist/Progressive says that equal misery for all is preferred to liberty. The Marxist/Progressive says that all property, including the earnings of the individual, rightfully belongs to the government and it is they who will determine what is fair for any individual to retain.
The American Democrat is also a relic because the Marxist/Progressives have abandoned the United States Constitution. Within the Constitution the “rule of law” was protected, and limited government and divided government were demanded and protected. The Marxist/Progressive party has demanded that law will be applied depending on the political beliefs of the individual. The Marxist/Progressive has said that there are no limitations as to what government can do and how much government can control the lives and thoughts of the individual. The Marxist/Progressive has stated that any branch of government can legislate and make law so long as it conforms to the collectivist ideology of the Marxist/Progressive party.
The American Democrat is a relic because Marxist/Progressives have state that the Bill of Rights no longer applies. The Marxist/Progressive has stated that where “no law” is stated in the different amendments it only means “no law” unless the Marxist/Progressives determine that some law would better serve their ideology. The Marxist/Progressives have also stated that the 9th and 10th amendments are no longer applicable and that the people will only have those rights the Marxist/Progressives have determine they can have, and that government has no restrictions on its powers.
In today's America, Moderate Democrat, fair media, and American Democrat are relics; they do not exist.
