90. No! We shouldn't be like the Republicans. We should be Democrats that respects all points of view
I vehemently disagree with the Blue Dog conservatives and the pro-corporatists, neocons of the Democratic Leadership Council, but we should respect each other as Democrats. My only issue is that the Yellow Dog progressives have been shut out of most policy discussions even though we work hard to get Democrats elected. I don't understand the disdain, even hatred, by some Democrats against the liberal wing of the party who have, for the most part, been the most loyal to the Democrats. I just don't understand why many Democrats give in to right wing talking points to trash and demonize liberals.
