    THis site is explicitly intended to, as Susan said, "elect more and better Democrats." As stated by the owner,

    This is a Democratic blog, a partisan blog. One that recognizes that Democrats run from left to right on the ideological spectrum, and yet we're all still in this fight together. [...] Liberal? Yeah, we're around here and we're proud. But it's not a liberal blog. It's a Democratic blog with one goal in mind: electoral victory. [...]
    Daily Kos will be what Daily Kos is, and that oftentimes evolves. I know everyone wants their clearly defined rules, but nothing is that simple.

    This site is CERTAINLY NOT for all Democrats. Joe Lieberman learned that. Blanche Lincoln is about to learn it.

    This site is about more and better Democrats, not necessarily in that order.

    There's no love for the Tea Party, or Limbaugh, or Congressional Republicans here. But that doesn't preclude discussion of grassroots politics or other topics. But, advocacy for typical positions characterized as "Tea Party" or "Republican" will not succeed here. People here support things like a renewed American manufacturing base, but generally do not support things like deregulation, tax incentives to business at the expense of the poor and working class, social programs, Social Security, Medicaid, organized labor, civil rights, and so on. So, positions counter to these things will not get traction at this site.

    I certainly don't speak for the site, but there you go.

    Those who would give up the public interest to purchase military-grade assault rifles deserve neither.
