    Well, there has been a lot of ideas about the recent historic election that took place. The main question is what is wrong with the Democratic party? Well, here is my take. The Party has become weak because it is attempting to represent too many people and agendas. They have no real identy and do know "stand" for anything. They have become a pack of watered down moderates, and ultra left wacko's that are out of touch with what the American People want. George Bush may not have had a mandate by the American People after the 2000 election, but he does now.

    The Repbulican agenda will get pushed through the Congress, and we will find out whether George is a genius, and right, or an idiot that should not govern. I am betting on the first, but you all knew that.

    Be careful what you wish for Mr. President. Now the entire world will be watching to see what you can do with power.

    very well said. The democrats are trying to reach out to everyone and are finding out that they cannot do it. The republican party on the other hand hasn't really changed its stance on any of the major issues.

    I actually agree with you for once, B2tM. However, I wouldn't say the president has a mandate from the people. The majority of Americans didn't vote, probably due to distaste with the political system and a notion that it would be hopeless to try to change it, and I believe a good portion of those who did vote voted for the least undesirable candidates they could find, and those candidates happened to be Republicans.

    It's sad that so few people vote. They think that their vote doesn't matter or they don't like the system. If everyone voted than the system might change, it might not. Hopefully after this election more people will vote.

    bingo, that's why it's even more important to vote when you don't like the system. i almost didn't vote this year, only cause i wasn't sure my registration carried over properly. but i did. if you love the system, no reason to try to change it/vote.

    anyone know voter turnout stats at all? as in, did more % vote in 2000 or 96 or 92, etc... i'm assuming that more people vote in general during the presidential elections......

    There is nothing wrong with the Democratic Party if you're a Republican ...

    "right" is a relative term and does not hold value in a community with diverse opinions. please explain

    38% and one of the best in a long time. To be honest, that sucks. Of course it's not like you can force someone to the voting place, force a pencil into their hand and force them to color in the little boxes. They have to decide that it is important enough for them to do it. Of course, maybe it's better that more people don't vote. Less of a wait to vote, and not as many people expressing their opinion. It would probably be about the same results if everyone voted, like Ovi said, but there is always that one vote that changes everything...

    is there a difference between the parties anymore?

    shouldn't we just call them the republicrats and be done with the two-party illusion...

    they've all sold out to big business... taken money from enron and other corps( who, of course, expect "nothing" in return)...they've all squandered the first surplus the federal government has had in many years...approved pork barrel projects to pay back their big contributers...ad infinitum

    its not surprising voter turn-out is so low. not that i condone apathy...thats certainly not the answer.

    the answer is to take responsibility on a local level and don't depend on the politicians to have your best interests in mind...

    you are a democrat who feels the need to label and bunch everyone you come across into a group with a nice little label. you want to be like martha stewart, type up little labels and everything, but that would make you feel like less of a man, and more of well, a woman.

    that is the best i can do with your continued generalizations.

    who cares if it was the democratic agenda? i don't. since the democrats have sold out just as much as the republicans. 3rdpath was saying they are one in the same, ie, he doesn't much like republicans either.

    don't put words and labels on people when it doesn't even fit. it's getting so old.

    I am a Democrat and proud of it. Make fun of me if you want, but it is a free country and that is my beliefs and choice.
