21. You mean the "not what somebody says on the Internet while wrapping themselves up in the
Liberal label" post, which itself cites an internet post?

I would agree that we can judge liberals, progressives, etc., by what they do, and not what they say.

And I think that's what the OP was asking people to discuss, as opposed to hysterically snark, about.
