We have been hearing lots and lots of advice how we right wingers need to tone it down a bit. How we are being incivil and are the cause of mass murder. If you need to get to a better destination, it is usually good advice to lead the way. Maybe others will follow, probably not. But if you have a goal in mind, it is best to head there yourself, in the hope that others might come along behind. So those who call for civility, lead us to this upland pasture of sweetness and light. Forebear from posting inflammatory mangled quotes out of context Do not accuse enemies of your own failings do not put words into the mouths of others. People say what they mean. Oftimes there are freudian slips, but even then, one should not read into a statement something that is not there. Do not assume that because there is one disagreement on one policy that there is instant disagreement on some moral standard. If you really are sincere in this, that you really want a higher standard, than you have to live the standard you preach. Not all the time. Man is fragile, and there are always snares and temptations, but one should make an effort to conform one's behavior to one's word as much as is possible.
