    from a third persons perspective they are telling you what are the values that underpin the issues that you believe in. in other words, they are asking you to figure out why you believe a woman has a right to choose beyond repeating the circular argument- that a woman has the right to choose. you must have some basic principles by which you live your life- what are they? and they aren't a recitation of a list of positions on issues. it's like how you look at friendships- do you have a long list of qualities that you look for- or is it more likely that you have a set of values that you try to see if you have in common with others? This person is asking you to do some hard work that a lot of Democrats aren't willing to do. It only seems like semantics if you haven't thought about the reasons why you believe in what you believe. I can tell you that my believe in true equality explains a lot of my views on individual civil rights issues regardless of the group. By understanding that, I can figure out in complicated situation where my moral barometer is and I am not so swayed by whatever fancy wind comes.

      This is substance, not semantic, message or marketing.  It is the sum of who we are, what we believe, the qualities we share. It is what inspires us and makes us care.
