53. And posts that the entire base is insulted are just fine?
Edited on Wed Sep-29-10 04:17 AM by Perky
I specifically said that individuals have the right to be insulted and say they are. But it is asinine and clueless to think that the base of the party is solely composed of the ideological left and that their voice is the only ones that matter.

If you want to be the majority party, it requires a really big canvas An a reall good pole in the middle otherwise you are going to force people out from other its covering.
