    •  Can we say there's not ENOUGH difference? n/t (0+ / 0-)

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!

        if you'd like specific differences, tomorrow when i get home from hospital, i'll be happy to ennumerate in great detail.

        that there are SOME similarities are not abnormal.  all people do not aggree on all things.  good people hold differing views due to personal experiences - that some people are fiscally conservative but personally liberal or, vice versa depends on the individual's life experience.

        we are not all the same - we are not clones.  neither of political parties.

        the job of responsible voters is to view the total picture and find which group best represents the total values that are held in common then work to find others who share those values and to make those values important in government.

        the simplistic view that all politicians are "corporatists" serves no one IF the party that gains a foothold (tea party) can cripple the entire nation with 40-50 extreme views.

        right now, i would welcome a blanche lincoln or other conservadem right now if it gave us control over the house.

        wouldnt you, as well?
