[Update] If I ask a question that says
party X repeatedly warns that if party Y gain power then Z will happen - to what extent has this come true?
Would it be on-topic?
My question To what extent have Democrats eroded gun rights / religious freedom - post WW II? was closed.:
The primary purpose of this question appears to be to promote or discredit a specific political cause, group or politician. It does not appear to be a good-faith effort to learn more about governments, policies and political processes
Well I can certainly agree that it does sound rather one-sided. However, I was prompted to ask it by a news article that I read, which might just as well have been about the other party.
As I said in a comment:
the essence of this question ... is "party X repeatedly warns that if party Y gain power then Z will happen" - to what extent has this come true?
With that in mind, can this question be saved?
I could make it generic, just seeking examples, if that would not be too broad.
I could also ask two questions, one of reach party, to show fairness.
I could also broaden the scope and make it world-wide. I just want to know to what extent the bogey-man actually exists.
There was also some suggestion of changing the date range. As I said in another comment:
I see big changes n the Democrats round about the Kennedy era & the Republicans around Reagan. Of course, I could be very wrong there (YkMMV). I just didn't want anything going back pre-civil war :-) How "recent" do think would make for a fair & balanced question?
So, can this question be salvaged, or is it just not a good fit for the site?
