    is exactly the time when we maintain out principles; if we don't demonstrate what we stand for, then we stand for nothing. More and more we hear racism, religious intolerance, and other forms of ignorance; falling into these arguments to win an election for sheer expedience to get the votes of the ignorant gets us supporting racists, bigots and ignoramuses and their ideals ... we thankfully got rid of the dixiecrats; are we to adopt these positions again due to the ignorance of voters? This is not a way to win an election and not the direction that the party needs to go. What we need is better, more progressive and principled democrats, not this.

    No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable (Adam Smith, 1776, I, p. 96).

      I remember with pride how FDR told the "fucking crackers" to take their 'god damned little white house' at Warm Springs and "shove it up their bigoted asses".  

      Or did he just think to himself as he counted their votes?

      Planning a vacation or convention in Arizona? Come to Palm Springs instead! Same desert weather, none of the bigotry.
