I am part of a political discussion listserv. When the list started I was a liberal. I was pissed about 2000 election. The list serve calmed down until 9/11 since then the liberal on the list have made me realize there is no place for moderate views on the left side of debates.
The left is saying that middle America is stupid, unscientific in their voting decisions. But the fact is it is the left that has lost any modicum of common sense. And they refuse to accept dissenting views. If you say marriage is between a man and a woman you are a gay basher. If you think there should be some protection for unborn children you are a religious zealot. If you believe in tax cuts for the rich you want poor people to go hungry. If you think people should have to identify themselves to vote you are trying to suppress the vote. You can't say Arafat is a killer without getting Bush has killed more civilians in Iraq than Arafat has.
Its become almost impossible to have a debate with a politically active liberal.
Science has proven that most babies can live outside the womb at 22 plus weeks of gestation but the refuse to give any protections to those babies. So in their mind a person who takes a baseball bat to a woman uterus and kills the baby did not commit murder, they only assaulted the woman.
Arafat is the father of modern terrorism, but to the left he is the same as our minutemen and Bush is worse because he attack Iraq.
It so sad that so many people around they world have become so confused and have lost any touch with common sense.
So when people are saying they voted for Bush because of morality. Its not because they agree with his morality but because he actually believes in right and wrong. He believes there is difference between targeting civilians and civilian caught in the crossfire. Hell even the Bloods and the Crips get it. They might kill a child in a crossfire but they aren't rolling up and shooting random women on the street. Which is what Arafat's supporters have done for decades. The left has given up on right and wrong. The lure of "rights" without responsibilities is so strong that they can't admit that there is something wrong with abortions. This a woman right to choose they say again and again, as if its a hair cut.
How could John Kerry say I believe life begins at conception but I will do nothing to protect those lives. I guess like Clinton who believed people were dying in Rwanda but he was unwilling to do anything to protect those lives. We don't need leaders who refuse to stand up for what is right. I didn't vote for Bush for moral reasons. But I understand the people who do. If you don't have time to become an amateur policy wonk all you have to rely on is does your leader have a moral compass and is he willing to follow it.
