One of the two major political parties in the U.S. It was formed by Thomas Jefferson but has changed greatly since then. It has become a self-righteous, corrupt and politically-correct party that has grown to embrace the Hollywood culture, abortion, socialism, the redistribution of wealth, universal healthcare, gay marriage, illegal immigration, envrionmentalism, antiquated labor unions, constantly higher taxes and usually followed by tax and spend practices, larger government and its stupid handouts and entitlement programs. Democrats are often hostile to corporate America and national defense. Most Democrats masquerade themselves as compassionate for the sake of votes and power.
The Democrat party is not successful anymore because its beliefs are largely antiquated and don’t work. Democrat philosophy, quite honestly, lacks faith in the American system by embracing far-left ideals. Much of its philosophy lacks common sense.
