    Moderate Monkeys will eventually pick a side* during each election just like the wing-nut Monkeys do, but... when the election's over, Moderate Monkeys actively look for things to support, as well as things to ream, both sides on. This is how they start the process of shopping their vote for the next election.



    This is the thread to admit that 'those guys', :eusa_shifty: whoever in the fuck 'they' are, just might have a reasonable bone in their body.

    It's also the thread to 'shame the devil and tell the truth' and 'fess up about a flaw or two that we see in the mirror, :dunno: whoever in the fuck 'we' are.


    It's easy... ass-u-me-ing we're Moderate Monkeys. :cool:

    Come on Democrats... If you're uncomfortable with the way some Republicans suck Corporate Cock for 'campaign money', and the cronyism in some of the entrenched, status quo protecting unions is o.k. with you, you might not be a Moderate Monkey.






    *Unfortunately, some elections are just easier than others to decide on, but that's the subject of another story.... When was the last time YOU switched parties? :eusa_eh:

    I love me some moderate republicans. Talking about fiscal responsibility without all the chicken little bullshit, and not obsessing and screaming at the top of their lungs about the social shit?

    FUCKING AMAZING!

    I switched parties in 2006 by the way.

    There's nothing cooler than an intelligent conservative. The only problem is there's so few of them.

    It would be nice if the Dems could do the same.. you know, talk about fiscal responsibility without all the chicken little bullshit about condoms, gay marriage, abortion and whatnot.

    Can't say this year. Think I have a Senate race coming up. Normally I would go news silent for as long as possible. Last time it was four years.

    Did that answer your question?

    :badgrin: Yeah, civil rights issues, contraception and important societal issues that effect all of us is exactly the same as pushing religion, trying to make rape okay and the cornucopia of retarded things that come out of prominent Republicans' mouths.

    If that's your answer it does. There's nothing worse than talking points repeated without an honest opinion to accompany them.

    So, then it is ok to talk about social issues...??? Because, that wasn't Cowman's take on things.

    You're like the person in the room with the camera. A hundred photos and you're not in one of them. You asked the question. What's your answer? Or is that a secret? Classified?
