Agreed. But, I'll assume you understand the basic laws of physics, which I believe can also apply to human social systems. "For every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction." My gut tells me to lash out in kind. Collectively, left-leaners are doing just the same, which of course creates an ever more harsh response from the right. We're "Godless" now? Vicious circle, right?
The only problem is I'm too familiar with history. It's been less than 100 years since we've seen this same political tactic weilded. Assault the masses with uber-patroitic rhetoric, then demonize gays and liberals. Thrown in "God is on our side!" and what have you got... ?
Do you conservatives see the parallel at all? Come back to the light, man!

Sorry JK - I've not yet forgiven my local Republican State Senator for saying that anyone who doesn't support the Iraq war should be deported. I'm not exactly ready for civil debate until I get an apology... from at least ONE republican for their conservative leadership's unhelpful, jingoistic remarks. Until then, Nazi's they are.Comment Posted By jules On 8.06.2006 @ 18:04
And while we're talking about it... are any of you conservatives aware of the last uber-leader to claim "God" in his political dominion (conveniently setting up the strawman that those who oppose are "godless")... check out this link with his movement's symbology nicely paired with christian icons. The belt buckle that says "god with us" is particularly nice!

"Doctrine of Infallibility"
Let us remind the followers of Ku Klux Koulter that this same doctrine was rolled out around 2003 concerning President Awol Alcoholic, err... Bush. Under the guise of "he's a war president" we've been told repeatedly by the right that "during times of war, the president should be supported unquestionably". Why are we expected to give that infallibility to the "war president" but not to the "war widows"?Comment Posted By jules On 8.06.2006 @ 16:34
Just a thought from one of those "libruls"... we are not interested in your conservatard fascist philosophies - we're not interested in your Ku Klux Christ either. It's time for a national divorce. I'm watching out for a brave man or woman to start the west coast/new england secession process. You can have the hairy-knuckled, date rape slave states... err - I mean southern states - to yourselves to oppress gays, hang your ten commodements on every street corner and have the theocracy you drool for. Meanwhile - we progressives will be eating at the best restaurants and providing freedom to EVERY citizen in the new American Union.Comment Posted By jules On 8.06.2006 @ 09:23
