Democratic or Democrat?
I've always been confused why Democrats insist on be called the, "Democratic Party", and not the "Democrat Party". According to the dictionary, the word democratic is an adjective, not a noun. It is used to describe something. Now, far be it for me to say what a party, club, gang, etc. must use as a name, but wouldn't a person who is a member of the democratic party, refer to themselves as democratics? Not, I am democrat, rather, I am a democratic...see how confusing that is? I do not see the condemnation in calling the party the democrat party. To me, this is grammatically correct and makes better sense. Now, try to tell a democrat (funny how that is a correct use of the title now) that his/her party should be called the democrat party and they get furious; "IT'S THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY YOU HATEFUL PERSON!" Okay, so, you're a democratic....excuse me.
Was that out loud?
