    based on facts and truth, but rather trying to invalidate, harass, and discourage discussion, basing your approach on your electoral political goals, as if that trumps all other concerns, then you're attacking honest dissent, and that you care little about real issues.
    The tactics one employes has zero reflection on whether or not they care about the actual issues.

      Tactics, when they contradict one's proclaimed values and lead to the opposite, do reflect on basic outlook of the person.

      Otherwise, the ends truly would justify the means.

      You're lost in the woods if you don't understand this. This is why I can't jump on your bandwagon. The tune it plays is out of sink with the purported message, all in the name of winning at any expense.

          Action on global warming?

          Constitutional rights?

          Economic equality?

          Or are we, in fact, losing on these fronts?

          It took a federal judge to enjoin Obama's NDAA. Thank goodness.

          Only someone who loves the status quo and wants to keep it that way would describe the sound of the citizenry raising their voices in protest to be whining.
