41. I know I normally harp on you,but this isn't a bad point.
I don't agree with some of the specifics of your post,but it's true that a minority of Dems were the ones to blame,not the majority,and that does get lost in the fog of war.

The trouble is that the Dems in the positions of power are just too damn nice in a time when nice is not needed,or even welcome anymore.I realize that's kind of an ugly statement in some ways,but it's true.We are being steamrolled left and right (literally,left and right).These are very,very special times.I truly believe we are in a period of history that will be looked back upon for a long,long time,and our actions will be recorded for history to see.We need to decide which side of that history we want to be remembered for.
