A new generation of Democrats is using far-reaching policy ideas and a brash social media presence to upend the party - pushing it to the left on divisive issues such as health care and climate change while it charts a path aimed at taking the White House in 2020.
But the liberal shift, and the lawmakers driving it, are also creating challenges for Democrats in more-conservative areas, and they are giving President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans fresh opportunities for political attacks. The GOP has been particularly focused in recent days on hammering Democrats over draft details of a broad "Green New Deal" proposal, even if most Democrats have not directly endorsed the fine print.

The word 'bent' in Britain can also mean - 'morally corrupt, crooked or homosexual.... Interesting analogy!! Explains a lot!!
Liberalism is a dangerous satanic and corrosive ideology and as we observe when in politics it corrupts and eventually destroys society.
1John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father:"
1John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world."
If the Democrats (Liberalist) are NOT of Christ - Then they are of Satan.
Matth 12:30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad." = (Which includes Liberalist churches too)
I thought that perhaps if the Democrats in Nebraska went for the candidate who was the Democratic Congressman before instead of a more Lefty one, they might have won the Omaha congressional district. But, that's because I'm more moderate then most Democrats. I'm not quite sure what would have helped them in Omaha. Perhaps the outcome would still have been the same.

excerpt from,"The real reason Republicans are freaked out about Democratsâ€™ move to the left "
A lot of things have changed for the better, Timothyâť— They had slavery in 1795. đź‘ŽThankfully health insurance the universal type is considered constitutional now.đź‘Ť
Socialism and its corollary, universal healthcare, is not only unwise, but unconstitutional. In 1795, the Supreme Court stated, â€śNo man would become a member of a community in which he could not enjoy the fruits of his honest labor and industry...The legislature, therefore, has no authority to make an act divesting one citizen of his freehold, and vesting it in another, without a just compensation. It is inconsistent with the principles of reason, justice and moral rectitude; it is incompatible with the comfort, peace and happiness of mankind; it is contrary to the principles of social alliance and every free government; and lastly, it is contrary to the letter and spirit of the Constitution.â€ť Conservatives should cite this ruling and sue the socks off of Obama, Occasional-Cortex and all the other socialist radicals who have violated our rights under the Constitution.
