  •  Ha (6+ / 0-)

    Well, I find it difficult to support war crimes, perpetual war, torture of political prisoners, murder of civilians, a creeping totalitarian surveillance state, and complicity with Wall Street's continued extraction of wealth from the working class.

    I guess I'm hopelessly flawed that way.

    •  Then dont be surprised (0+ / 0-)

      when those things become even worse as a direct result of your actions.

      There's a word for claiming not to support things, while at the same time performing actions that further those things..what was it..starts with "h", I think....

      •  You have this backwards (8+ / 0-)

        Not supporting draconian polices actually creates them? And to disagree with that absurdity is hypocrisy?

        •  Electing Republicans (0+ / 0-)

          creates them.

          Abandoning Democrats not only elects Republicans, it convinces the Democratic party that Republican policies is what the electorate wants thus, moving the party right.

          Not supporting Democrats is the direct cause of EVERY single thing you complain about.  History, reason and logic all demonstrate this.

          And yet you'll still cling to the abandonment strategy that has failed so miserably for 40+ years.

          Which would be fine if you weren't whining about the direct consequences of said strategy- what was that "h" word about people who complain about the direct consequences of their own actions?

          Or that "I" word- about people who do the same thing over and over again, but expect different results....

      •  There's a word for your arguments, that word (4+ / 0-)

        is "nonsense", "illogic" also fits. If many persons are beating drums, those elsewhere sitting quietly are not the ones making the noise and they also are not causing the others to do so.

        That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --

    •  I find it difficult to support those things also. (4+ / 0-)
      •  That you don't understand that (0+ / 0-)

        you ARE supporting them through your actions is why you're going to fail, Ray.

        The party will continue to go right until liberals understand and accept how they are driving the party right, and change their behavior accordingly.
