    So sorry, lots of unsound rhetoric, here..

    He is the only candidate with a substantial plan on the everything, including the war and the CITO counter-terrorism plan that actually links poverty to terrorism, because that's called logic. Logic I hear from no other candidate.

    John Edwards is the only one who cares about poverty and has a specific plan to end the war and to strengthen our ability to fight global poverty. Global poverty is a recruiting tool for Islamic Extremism, and a source to a lot of our problems.

    So that's not true, but go ahead and stick to the idea that someone cannot progress and learn from their mistakes.

    Fight? Fuck.. fuck all this fighting. It's just stupid and childish. I hate all the macho nonsense. We need to convince people, not fight them. Fighting is how we ended up in this hole.

    How did we convince the British to let us have our own sovereign nation?

    How did we convince the Lobby that owns congress not to give us fair prices on prescription drugs.

    I'm sorry to be too frank, but what I just heard was a bunch of denial and non-understanding of why we don't have health care, while buying into the rest of the non-factual grab-bag of favors.

    Now it's real nice, that you somehow are not angry at the people suffering from cancer, but John and Elizabeth Edwards are. If you don't have any health concerns, then I'm happy for you, but as MLK said:

    "Freedom is never given by the oppressor."

    Any other outlook is devoid of any reality.

    John Edwards is the most electable candidate. It's official.

      These days I think I'm turning on Edwards not because of anything he's said or done but because of everyone on this website and their relentless bashing of everybody who doesn't support John fucking Edwards. I'm tired of this shit and this website and all the spam in it.

        and you don't have to agree with me, but this is a campaign season and I care about ending the problems we  have, and sometimes that comes off a little too harsh. That doesn't mean that I am bashing you or anyone else.

        But I told you specifically what I had a problem with, and my outlook on what you said.

        I have nothing against you, whatsoever, but I will tell you when I strongly disagree with you, because I don't see that as a good decision.

        There is a lot at stake in this election, and I'm sorry if you took it like that, but I am merely stating my opinion based on what brought up, historically, and otherwise.

        This country is desperate, so I feel very strongly, but please don't take it like that, because it's not like that at all.

        If you want to leave, leave, but I'm not spamming you or bashing you. I am merely disagreeing with you, even though my methods are extreme sometimes in pointing out how.

        So I hope you will stay, despite the fact that I disagree with your take.

        John Edwards is the most electable candidate. It's official.

      •  So leave (0+ / 0-)

        seriously dont let the door hit you in the ass.

        Go to "the blog where everyone loves my candidate!". That'll make us pay. Dont vote for him because you dont agree with him. That'll sure show us. Or maybe consider theres a reason that Edwards is supported by a majority of DK which is the heart of the progressive/left movement. And that Obama is at the least the second pick of a huge majority. That Dodd et al also have a lot of support here. Because he reflects our ideology. Not because obama did this and clinton peed in my wheaties etc etc.  It seems your dislike is not for Edwards (or any other candidate) but rather that your dislike is for the left. We're it. We argue. We fight. Then we work hard and donate a lot of money to get Our candidate elected. So either suck it up, enjoy or evade the primary wars and then vote Democratic or get the hell out.

        I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever TJ
