Let me be clear. If Dems nominate a candidate who supports one or more

of the following:
Abolishing Private Health Insurance and/or
School Busing and/or
Reparations and/or
Decriminalization of illegal border entry and/or
Green New Deal and/or
Abolishing the Electoral College

They will have trouble beating Trump. You can call these policies "socialist" or not. You can call them "Roger" or "Boogeyman" for all I care. It doesn't matter what you call them. What does matter is that these are policies that have been embraced publicly by one or some of the (non-centrist) Dem candidates at one point or another -- they may be red meat to the fringe left, but they will not play well with the general electorate. Does racism and bigotry play well? No. But those (with the addition of blatant sexism) didn't seem to disqualify the Stain in 2016.

So there you have it, for what it's worth. Is this reality right? Is it wrong? I don't know, but I think it's a fact of our environment. If you disagree and think that some or all of these policies are winners because Stain's racism trumps them, then fine. But, I disagree. I think that he will pummel any candidate with those views. I hope that we don't get 4 more years of the Stain, but to do that, I think that the Dems need to nominate a true centrist.

BTW, if I'm getting it from both the lefties and the Trumpists, then that gives me a good feeling that I'm in the place that I want to be -- the Right Center :) Although my pragmatism makes me somewhat of a lonely figure on a message board full of extremists.
