    Hmm, I think of myself as someone that thinks our country/citizens should wake up and get a grip on what's important to our posterity.

    I'm sorry, I'm kinda confused. Am I a "populist leftist" or an "elitist leftist"?

    You would be considered a run of the mill centrist in most Western Countries...

    You are so lucky I like you too much to insert the answer you 'left' yourself so wide open for. :lol:

    interesting that so many that consider themselves on the left have a problem with this. Truth is there is a gulf and choices are going to have to be made. It the problem that is already being found on issues.

    My goodness. I am one of those 'Elite Leftists'. Dang, what have I been doing spending 40 years working on the machinery that runs industry? Gee Whiz, all the time I was spending with the local PTA and BSA has been wasted? I should have been hobnobbing with movie stars?

    Annie, Annie, the talking heads don't matter. It is we on the factory floor that have totally lost faith, both in the Conservative message, and the conservative ideology. And we made our voices felt on 8Nov08. And we will make our voices known again on 8Nov10.
