Are you kidding me?
I reject the entgire premise. For example, I posted a funny "Smug Obama Smilie" today, and I was called a RACIST for having done so. A ****ing smilie.
I'm pretty ****ing tired of it tbqh. Any word spoken by a non-liberal is equated to racism, and it's a lie and it's bull****. The Tea Party certainly had it's fringe, like Occupy had it's building burning, woman raping fringe. The core of the Tea Party is absolutely not racist, and frankly I'm tired of hearing this lazy lie being used as a cudgel to beat everyone right of center.
Stop harping on gay rights and abortion. Again, this ship has sailed. America wants abortion to be legal, and they're now OK with gay marriage. Freakin' drop it, already. The country is not going back from this.
And Social Welfareism/Collectivism has a better record?
Tell me, how come after so many years of mostly Democrat Rule, Blacks still are so far behind in cities where an (R) has barely ever held a set, like Washington DC.
I.e. The Tea Party.
Bull****, pure unadulterated bull****. Liberalsism/Progressivism IS, at it's very core, a Social Welfare State/Redistributionist/Collectivist movement.
To imply otherwise is as dishonest as calling teh Tea Party as a whole racist.
If that were true, (D) would never win 98% of their vote. Because your limp list of supposed ways to change is completely full of typical liberal-propaganda bull****, and demonize-the-other-side lies.
Your best argument is "give up on gays and abortion", which of course will never happen. Abortion is murder in their eyes.....tell me, if liberals think a lack of Universal State Paid Healthcare is a "Holocaust", how willing do you think liberals would be to simply "drop it" on something they felt was murder?
It's almost like you expect (R) to simply become a softer, slightly-less-liberal (D). Which, given you are a liberal obviously, is exactly what I'd expect. An "opposition" party that offers no opposition, supports all the same things you do only slightly less of it, is the best thing a party can have. It means they'll almost never lose.
Oh please, now you're acting like a grumpy old man. I thought you were too smart for this, but you're right, you're obviously not. Lazily painting me with a broad idealogical brush because you're still throwing a hissy fit about the election.
I DO want an opposition party. I want one that makes sense and doesn't appeal to an extreme fringe. I want a party run through the ideals of Eisenhower, Rockefeller, Goldwater and Bush 1. What a bunch of hippie tree huggers, huh? But YOU want that fringe, because you don't give **** abut anyone but yourself. You're a slave to social darwinism, and the fantasy-land rantings of Ayn Rand. Go find some remote island and live there all by yourself, free from taxes and laws and everything else. You'd make Ted Kaczynski proud. Or try moving to Scotland, they've done a real bang up job of getting out from English rule. Oh but wait, you already said in another thread that you have no plans to leave DC, a pretty progressive-minded place to live. So I guess your only option is to continue to rant here about how everything sucks and evil communistic liberalism has won, while continuing to live in a mostly liberal area. The irony is overwhelming.
Liberals do not see lack of a single payer option the "Holocaust", where did you get that? And yes, abortion and gay marriage are no longer a feasible political wedge issue. Even top GOP strategists are saying the same thing. Got a problem with it? Tough ****, the people have spoken.
Ge back to me when you're done whining.
