96. I am not advocating that Democrats abandon pro-choice
as a position -- just that we cut the hyperbolic, heated, insane rhetoric ("cretins," "body nazis," "fascists," etc.).

We will never win the hearts and minds of our neighbors by beating them up and calling them names.

You do point out a lot of hypocrisy, but do not touch their actual arguments.

DU purports to be liberal, but we have posters using sexist and racist language. That's hypocrisy, but does that hypocrisy make all liberal arguments worthless? No.

Rather than pointing out what you believe to be contradictions (i.e., some pro-lifers are both pro-life and pro-war), why not take on their arguments? Just because my vegetarian friends wears leather shoes doesn't make his arguments for vegetarianism worthless. See my point?
