4. Actually we are not much different from conservatives
I read these boards and see the totalitarian approach one would expect from a reactionary on the right.

There is really NO commitment to the common good. It is usurped by a commitment to make everybody PAY for any unhappiness brought about to a specific ideology.

For the most part this board reminds me of a portion of a George Bernard Shaw quote:

People are a snivelling, heaping clod of ailments complaining that the world will not devote tiself to making them happy.

I am happy for people's newfound activism....I've been at it for 22 fucking years...where the fuck were they all when the states were being seduced bu corporations to put RIGHT TO WORK laws on the ballot...growing their 80's fucking hair?
