    I cannot believe some of the crap from the left. i thought you had the moral high ground? No wonder the right has such animosity to you.

    Reclaim the high ground, dudes, especially if you want to keep congress.

    Or don't, and watch it all slip away.

    The Left has never had the moral high ground. It's just that the Right lost it.

    The wind must be blowing.

    I read that you're a centrist which explains your problem.

    I suggest the left not get too concerned and just wait until the wind blows back this way.

    You're wasting your time and effort. I've been saying the same since Jimmy Carter. The self-righteous aren't listening.

    These same people are new "neocons." They just won't look at who and what they are at face value.

    Are you advocating the left not try to reach out to the center? but be happy with keeping only with entirely like-minded folk?

    The way the religious conservatives have done lately?

    Statements like "I don't care if the democrats do X, Y, Z even if it is illegal and immoral since the republicans have done it in the past" and anything reeking of "in your face" and namecalling and etc etc.

    Having been raised catholic, I tend to think of moral high ground as being evidenced by golden rule-ism and beattitude-like behavior, which I associate with social programs and diplomacy over aggression.

    IMO the left has claim to some moral high ground. But the nastiness from some is sickening.
