32. Yes, at least for some/most
Edited on Wed Jun-02-04 02:41 PM by sangh0
is it your contention that those on DU who label themselves Greens are not real Greens ?? you think they are merely anti-Kerry attack dogs who chose the Green label for some mysterious purpose ?

I don't think the purpose was mysterious. They are less likely to get banned if they attack Kerry from the left.

i'm not really sure what you're point is ... please clarify ...

You're not going to be able to have a reasonable discussion with people who's behavior is fundamentally dishonest.

btw, using a phrase like "Green whiners" might just give you a wee little bit less influence with this group of people

I don't think it's possible to influence Freepers and disruptors.

and isn't part of gaining support for your candidate and your beliefs part of what politics is all about ...

I don't think any of us can persuade a Freeper to vote for Kerry. Besides, that's not what politics is ALL about. Part of politics is about getting your competitors supporters to sit out an election.

you often seem intolerant in the language and style you employ ... i'm sure you could be more effective with a different approach

And I am sure that I'm more than effective. I have helped register thousands of voters, and I've convinced scores of people to vote Dem. I've found that you can get people to fight for your side unless you show them that you are willing to fight for your side.
