  •  Because dividing people and creating false (17+ / 0-)

    arguments diverts attention from what they are truly after, and covers for their lies that have helped to shift our society into one driven by fear and uncertainty for decades.  All for the increasing profits of a private elite at the public expense.

    They are leeches and it's time to speak out against the cultural influences they have grown in so many.  I have some compassion for the people who have fallen for the selfish, fearful stories worn thin by Republicans, but find myself increasingly pushing back against their ingrained expectations on a daily basis in real life.  I've pushed back at DKos with some users who seem to be holding water for Republican-driven myths and FUD, as well.

    I feel that it is time to take back what it means to be fair and constructive in society again, I feel: President Obama seems to be a very good inspiration for doing so, even if we may not all use his methods.
