Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Response to Skinner (Original post)

52. I'd appreciate more guidance.

I will almost certainly vote for Obama and do not expect to be advocating for any third party candidate, let alone any Republican.

Nonetheless, I have consistently opposed the following regardless of party or candidate, and I'd rather not have to stop now:

War.
The failure to prosecute torture and other war crimes by the Bush admin. et al.
Surveillance or any other invasions of privacy of peaceful activists and other U.S. citizens, without probable cause.
The indefinite detention of alleged terrorists, illegal immigrants, or anyone else without a trial.
Discrimination against women or LGBT people.
The bailout of AIG, Goldman, et al. and the failure to pass meaningful financial reform or prosecute financial crimes.
The failure to pursue or seriously advocate single-payer healthcare reform.
The privatization of education or other traditionally governmental functions.
The continuing expansion of already excessive copyright and patent protections.
The continuing consolidation of corporate or other control over the internet as well as other media.
Etc.

Pres. Obama and other Dems have been, in my opinion, only marginally better on these issues in some cases, and in a few cases, arguably worse than the Bush admin.

I'd appreciate any more explicit advice you can give as to whether respectfully-stated criticisms of Pres. Obama's or other Dems' actions on these or other issues during the next 6 months. will be considered "bashing" or otherwise get me banned from DU.

As always, thanks for all your good efforts and hard work.
