    No one - none of us - no one in the world is either 100% pure of heart, spirit, totally morally clean, free of any bad past actions, mistakes, or even intentionally evil, mean, or upsetting past actions.

    We are Human Beings. (If you want to clearly understand what I mean by that, watch the old classic movie "Little Big Man.")

    We are Human Beings.
    We fail. We do wrong.

    BUT

    We can learn from our past mistakes.
    We can reason. We can decide to work together.

    Ideological purity is a test that no one can pass.
    Look to what people are doing TODAY. How they act and behave TODAY.

    Some things - like permission to torture - cannot and should not be forgiven.  But, for crying out loud, any thought that Ideological Purity even EXISTS is just ludicrous. It does not have a place in reality-based discussion, because Human Beings are just not pure. All of us are flawed. All of us have failed. All of us have made mistakes in our own ways. (I should have gotten to work earlier this morning, for one.)

    So stop with the "purity" BS and Get To Work on Fixing the Country.  

    Good guys:  Those who are working to fix the country.

    Bad guys:  Those are are throwing up roadblocks to fixing the country.

    All of us:  discussing and WORKING on the best ways to fix the country.
