  •  I think it's even more nuanced than that. (6+ / 0-)

    I can only speak for myself, but I take each issue at a time and try to apply my sense of reality to it. I then try to apply that issue to the bigger picture and apply my sense of logic to it.

    There are many times when I do not understand why Obama or the Dems are doing something. Those issues take more of my time to think about. But more times than not, I end up agreeing with them. The wall I hit is that when I agree I am called all sorts of things and my arguments for why I got where I got are completely disregarded. It seems that if I try to lay out my own thought process, it's ignored and I am brushed aside as having just jumped because Obama said to.

    There are times when I am pragmatic and there I times when I want to go balls out. But in the end, I think I am just more moderate in process than I am in belief. But that doesn't make me any of the things I'm called by people who want to go balls out more times than not. It just means they came to a different conclusion. Unfortunately, they're often too busy insulting me to see where I made my evaluations.


    "I believe in an America in which we don't just look out for ourselves, that we don't just tell people you're on your own..." President Obama
