    so long as the cause is just.

    That's the root of the problem- the Republicans have been the party of hatred, bigotry, and supply-side bullshit for 30 years now.

    It's not a political party. It's a coordinated assault on the people of America.

    •  Yeah, what you said. (0+ / 0-)

      This is exactly what Mr. Moral Equivalency from Starbucks and his let's-have-progressivism-but-not-get-our-hands-dirty ilk can't understand, and why the Dems have defaulted to the Repubs over the past 40 years.

      While fractiousness and lack of unity may have been hallmarks of the Democratic party in the face of Republican unanimity, they were certainly not welcome manifestations of our ideals and leadership style. Starbucks makes the classic Democratic mistake of confusing tactics with goals. This is a struggle for power in the richest country in the world. Discipline is required. Eyes must be kept on the prize. Did the Allies defeat Hitler by being undisciplned and not being in "lockstep?"

      Of course everybody thinks their party is correct, but that doesn't mean that all parties are equally wrong. Nazis were far worse than Socialists in Germany; Leninists were worse than Mensheviks in Russia; and Republicans are worse than Democrats here and now. There is no moral equivalence and the Democrats owe it to us all to defeat the Republican threat.
