  •  Other dirty words: moderate and centrist. (1+ / 0-)

    Full disclosure: I have strong socialist leanings when it comes to guaranteeing basic standards of food, shelter, education, and medical care of all types (mental health, dental, vision, etc.). So I'm not big on moderate candidates and centrist policies - I want to grow the social safety net and I fully expect the corporations and wealthy individuals to contribute more to fund that growth.

    That being said, I would much prefer a "moderate" candidate to any self-proclaimed conservative of any stripe. Where are the self-described moderates who claim to be independent thinkers?

    Oh, right, in today's political climate, "think" is another dirty word :-/

    preborner: (n.) one who believes that the right to life begins at conception and ends at birth.
