There comes a time when you must stand and fight.

There comes a time when you must stand and fight.

No more Appeasement. Remember Neville Chamberlain? You can't have civil discourse with a rabid dog. Peace does have a cost and we liberals are willing to fight for it.

Some people are talking about seceding and from the US and joining Canada. I believe that separatism won't help because we have gone beyond that. They have declared war on us. Liberals are not in favor of first strike but we are willing to strike back. They are trying to destroy us. We need to defend ourselves, in war that means fighting back. It is to late for civil discourse, we tried that. No more Appeasement with Conservatives. We need to kick their asses now.

A lot of people are citing "Perverted, God-Hating Frenchies vs. Inbred, Sex-Obsessed Yokels: Why Can't Liberals and Conservatives Get Along? Because They Fundamentally Misunderstand Each Other" by Steven Waldman on Beliefnet

I don't agree with him. Primarily because I don't accept his basic premiss. But also because he cuts the conservatives too much slack.

TRUTH ABOUT CONSERVATIVES #1
They're Just As Smart As Liberals
The idea that red state voters chose Bush because they’re ignorant or uneducated is bigoted, not to mention inaccurate.


Program on International Policy Attitudes. PIPA a joint program of the Center on Policy Attitudes (COPA) and the Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland (CISSM), School of Public Affairs, University of Maryland. Published a study that demonstrated that Bush suporters had false beliefs about key issues, while Kerry supporters had accurate beliefs.

This TRUTH ABOUT CONSERVATIVES #2
They Don't Want a Religious Dictatorship

and this TRUTH ABOUT CONSERVATIVES #3
The Pro-Life Position Is Born of Compassion


Is contradicted by his
TRUTH ABOUT CONSERVATIVES #5
They Believe American Culture Has Become An Insult to God


And I don't for one minute accept that The Pro-Life Position Is Born of Compassion To conservatives compassion=discipline=punishment.

They have this whole Strict Father morality thing going on. They use words to mean the opposite of what we use them to mean. Read "Moral Politics" by George Lakoff (George agrees with you about trying to keep a civil discourse by the way, just so you don't think I'm getting my militant ideas from him.)
