6. I'd rather work in the Democratic Party & also, define moderate
Edited on Fri Feb-11-05 11:29 AM by BlueInRed
First off, please define moderate. It means different things to people. If you mean "DLC" I'd never consider it. I consider myself a moderate but I am not DLC, at least as of 2001. I believe in a fair shake for both workers and small business owners, but not in advancing big corporate interests. I believe in reasonably priced health care for Americans while allowing doctors to make a reasonable profit. I believe you can encourage technological advances while still protecting the environment. I believe in fiscal responsibility AND a safety net for those who need it. I believe in allowing people personal freedoms to live their lives, as long as it doesn't jeopardize the safety of other people. I believe taxes should take into account the ability to pay (to whom much is given, much is expected). This is how I define moderate.

The Democrats have a real chance to become a dominating force if we can just get our campaign strategy together and learn how to run locally in purple states. I'd rather focus on that.

Anyway, this seems an odd question for a Democratic board.
