Response to cali (Original post)

Sat Jul 7, 2012, 04:10 PM

114. If Dems are so afraid of challenges from the left...

Why not remove the threat by

1) Supporting election reforms like run-off voting or ranked choice that would allow people to express their opinions without fear of "spoiling" the election or throwing it to the gop...

2) Adopting some of the Green/Left agenda on the key issues where they express the most concern. Those include for example some environment and trade issues.

?.

These would be adult responses to a political challenge from the left, as opposed to calling names like a bunch of fricken babies. Grow up whiners. Find a way to incorporate the Green/left agenda into the political debate in a constructive way.
