Social Matter - 21st Century Leftward Drift

New essay at Social Matter. How far has the left drifted? I'll show you. Besides the failure of Bill Bradley's campaign, Ralph Nader's fringe Green candidate platform is now the Democrats' base's beliefs. Cthulu swims left and in recent years, quickly.

An example I believe you talked about in an essay last year is Jim Webb. In 2006, the media wrote countless articles praising him and the Blue Dogs for taking back Congress from the Republicans. He even provided the official response to the State of the Union address in 2007. However their time in the sun was short lived and after 2008, the Democrats couldn't wait to shove all of the blue dogs out of the doggie door. In 2015, Jim Webb was persona non grata in a party that just a few short years ago called him their savior.

If you are right and that green party policies eventually become democrat policies, then look no further than Jill Stein's VP pick, Ajamu Baraka. Bernie and Jill's democratic socialism will give way to Baraka's no holds barred third worldism. There are questions as to whether America will resemble Brazil or South Africa in the next couple of generations and if your theory is correct, it is sadly going down the South Africa route.

Sailer wrote many moons ago in his old blog that the US (the West) future is Brazil mixed with the Ottoman Empire.

I just watched the movie Elysium and I have no doubt the future will be something like this, the world becoming a huge favela and the elite living in their own protected safe space.
