From the nominee for Director of Homeland Security..

"...On the personal side, Kelly learned firsthand the pain and loss suffered by many military families. His son, 2nd Lt. Robert M. Kelly, died in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban in 2010. Four days later, the general delivered a passionate and at times angry speech about the military’s sacrifices and its troops’ growing sense of isolation from society.

“Their struggle is your struggle,” he told a crowd of former Marines and business people in St. Louis. “If anyone thinks you can somehow thank them for their service, and not support the cause for which they fight — our country — these people are lying to themselves. . . . More important, they are slighting our warriors and mocking their commitment to this nation.”

Amen

It will be tough to get honest and open discussion within local and state party to move it from its present positions and makeup.

Doubt there will be openness and honest assessment.

That leaves millions of us Democrats where - alienated and in a lot of cases despised by the present leadership, members and staff of the party.

Could there be a new party and present Democratic Party changes its name?
