    bother you so much. When people jump down your throat for expressing an opinion different from their own, that's just rudeness (and a sign of either insecurity or immaturity, or both). No one wants conservative trolls around here, but when people attack one another for expressing a moderate position on an issue, or (as you have done) merely expressing the view that people should be respectful in countering differing points of view, that's just a sign of something fucked up with those people. No matter what you say or do, you are not going to be able to fix people who were not fortunate enough to be brought up by parents who taught them about respect and decorum.

    •  I apologize if I'm the rude person you were (0+ / 0-)

      addressing.  It annoys me when people are soooo stuck on their perfect liberal creds that they accuse others of having no moral base.  I find that people who cling to pure ideology have never lived in the real world where these are tested on a daily basis.  

      I realize I am making assumptions about the poster.

      •  Keep in mind also that not (0+ / 0-)

        some people here are liberal only because those policies personally benefit them. There are lower income people who believe in welfare because it's the right thing to do, but there are also those who if they ever were to become rich they would become conservatives. A selfish streak in a working class person would naturally be drawn to left-leaning policies. True liberals support causes that don't personally help them - or even hurt them.

        •  you're not a liberal... (0+ / 0-)

          so don't even bother attempting to define what liberals are and what they do.

          I sing praises in the church of nonsense, but in my heart I'm still an atheist, demanding sense of all things.

      •  what irks... (0+ / 0-)

        the liberals the most is the not even bothering to try.  The leadership doesn't  even bother trying to make the argument for single payer. They're not even bothering to try and make the argument for increasing spending and not gutting the budget. They're not even trying to make the case for a big increase on capital gains taxes. It's the lack of effort on the part of the leadership to offer a clear opposing vision.  The White House and the Democrats look at the polls throw up their hands and compromise from jump.

        It's not about a rigid ideology, because we are well aware that things don't change in big way, it takes time and effort, but if the leaders of the party are not even bothering to offer an idealized version of what they are trying to accomplish it offers no basis for a middle to be found and it allows the idiots in the Republican party to sit on their hands and extort what they want which makes every bill more conservative then it needs to be.

      rat. You scurry around infesting this site with disease and then claim you're innocent.

        Me, I'm a rude opinionated asshole, but you see me coming and you know what I am going to do.
