  •  I'll go further than that (10+ / 0-)
    The party needs its critics and its left wing represented.
    The Democratic Party has to be the left wing.

    I'll say it again, the virtue of a two party political system with a left and a right is that each party acts as a check on extremism on the part of the other party.

    We no longer have a two party political system with a left and a right. There hasn't been a check on the right in decades.

    Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.

    •  Running Center Left, Obama got 69.5 (6+ / 0-)

      million votes.

      Governing Center Right and running Center, he got 66.

      Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?

      •  We have to define the center (0+ / 0-)

        It isn't what it once was.

        I'll take a crack at it.

        The center is objective reality. I know it's an elusive philosophical term and many would argue it doesn't exist. I have no intention to indulge in philosophical and rhetorical discussion. The extremists at both ends of the spectrum will be quick to debunk any departure from reality.

        There is room for differences in perspective. There will never be a time when we all agree, but we can still rely on empirical observations. It's incumbent on the individual to be well enough informed to separate the wheat from the chaff.

        Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.
