I'll grant that a good portion of the blame lies in our predecessor electorate, but my ire is focused upon the Democratic Party. Democrats, it is due to your nonenending bullshit that there are people who use the word liberal (which I am tired of reminding people means open minded) as a slur. You had to shift your stance a bit after 9-11. I get it. That doesn't mean you get to check your spine at the door when you enter the Capitol. Fuckers, you voted for the Patriot Act and the Iraq war and robbed yourselves and your constituents of credibility. You let your opposition use the Straw Man Fallacy as a debate tool and NEVER FUCKING CALL THEM ON IT. You allowed them to paint John Kerry as a flip-flopper despite the enormous holes in the arguement evident to anyone willing to do a little simple fact-checking. You didn't even do anything about the heinous deffamation of character that allowed a man who may not have even showed up to his National Guard post to cast a Silver Star recipient's war record in a negative light. You are, in short, a bunch of five-thumbed fuck-ups.

That having been said, you have not directly conspired to defame me, or strip me of my rights. You haven't launched an assault on rational thought, or sullied our environment or international diplomacy. We can still work together.

But seriously, meet me halfway, will you?

Agree again-Liberal is open minded. We must remember that not all democrats or republicans are just liberal or conservative, but I think all in all, democrats are the more liberal party. That does mean we should listen to all sides with an open mind-but also it means to stick to your guns once you have made a decision unless you have a good reason to change your mind. I agree that most democrats get ellected by preaching about their great idiologies and end up just being fuck ups when they get into office. There are many excpetions, but not enough. They are still the better pary and I think we can still work together also.

I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever, in religion, in philosophy, in politics, or in anything else, where I was capable of thinking for myself. Such an addiction is the last degradation of a free and moral agent. If I could not go to heaven but with a party, I would not go there at all.
--Thomas Jefferson

I swear, there is no man in history whose words I have agreed with so much and yet whose actions I have reviled. The irony here is that Jefferson is the man responsible for partisan politics in America.
