    If we want to continue to have a country that has any potential to be improved democratically this is the last shot to do it.

    It’s not hyperbole. The trolls are out in full force to discourage you from taking action. Don’t like the Democratic Party? Had it with the DNC?

    I get it. But there are far fewer levers of power that can be pulled by citizens if Trump gets in again. We all know this.

    This is our very last chance to start to turn things around.

    It’s not a democracy, it’s an oligarchy, and trump can/will make it worse. The DNC doesn’t really care because they play both sides

        Are you saying people should not refer to the Democratic Party as the party representing democracy, or are you suggesting as your text literally reads that we should emphasize a distinction between the DNC and the party the DNC controls?

            Thank you for clarifying which point you are making. The reason I asked is I’m not sure the two terms are being used interchangeably here. Right now, we’re in a situation where a second Trump term may be decided by whether we stick with an evidently senile candidate. And the way to prevent that would be for the DNC to organize an event specifically to option the idea of picking a new candidate. So at this point in time, it seems appropriate to point ire not at the Democratic Party broadly like we might do when Democrats in office behave poorly, but at the DNC apparatus itself. It’s possible that was the original commenter’s intent.
