5. How different to the conservatives are "we", really?
Edited on Sat Feb-21-04 02:20 AM by Spider Jerusalem
I see a good many here whose positions and arguments are based not on reason or logic but upon emotion; many who are driven by anger, and who have allowed their emotions to cloud their judgement; many whose degree of emotional attachment to and investment in the success of a particular candidate has driven them to proclaim that, given that their preferred candidate is no longer in the hustings, they will be at best reluctant and at worst unable to vote for the eventual Democratic nominee. Yes, "we" do not march in ideological lockstep like our right-wing counterparts; but, that particular aside, "we" are no more free of the foibles and failings inherent in being a grouping of flawed, imperfect and often illogical humans than they are.

Just my observation, anyway...feel free to disagree.
