The only thing anti-american is people like you (DeadNephews) who attack anyone with views different than your own. Go look in the mirror and you will see the traitor to our flag loud and clear. Shame on you. Go get some education. Learn what america really stands for.

The one thing this thread proves is that I do not stand alone. Free speech and freedom of thought has been well defended. Thank all of you that have done so.

Tell you the truth, that brand of Democrat may be an endangered species. The lesson of this election is that the Democrats have now completly lost a core constituency - lower-to-median middle class working white people. The core of the Democrat Party moved from that constituency to the tree-hugger set, and as a result it has become way too focused on narrow issues while totally neglecting the broad issues that could have worked in their favor. That article I posted from the Onion has more truth than humor in it - the Dems have focused so much on rights for narrow interest groups and extreme positions on environmental and social issues, they have allowed the Repubs to define them as a mish mash of kooks.

The dems need to get back to broad issues - for example, instead of talking about "gay rights" they need to talk about "human rights", which for me is the same thing and puts things in a perspective that would allow people uncomfortable with homosexuality to see things in a different light. On religious issues, and here I plead guilty to my own charges, they need to stop letting the most anti-religious spokespeople set the tone, and let those Dems who are religious, and there actually are quite a few, to point out that Jesus was in fact a leftist and many of the social aims of the Democrats are more consistent with his teachings than what the Republicans advocate. Instead our main religious spokesman, Mr. Jackson, is a guy who cheats on his wife, fathers illegitmate children, has been accused of embezzlement, and is stuck in the 60s, not mention the fact his diction makes it incredibly difficult for a lot of people to understand what the hell it is he is saying.

The point I was trying to make in the "weenie liberal" statement is that dems have become so successfully stereotyped by the rightwing media machine, people now automatically perceive someone who supports the dems as a tree hugging pothead, when the real fact is millions of democrats come from union and working class backgrounds.The leadership keeps worrying about losing these extremists to Nader and the gang, but I think catering to them has come at the price of losing millions of voters who should be their natural consitutency - average working people. I want to see them drop gun control, being anti-nuke plant and pro Affirmitive Action, and see them get off this kick of looking like they want to give selected minorities special treatment and get back to advocating broad advances in general civil rights. If the Dems don't smarten up and return to giving the segment of the Democrat Party who feels that way the voice and face of the party, they are dead. The weenie liberal days need to come to an end.

RE: KVinning stands ..............alone

Good summation, Kirk. Kind of along the lines of what I've been saying about this whole election race, that the right is getting too right, and the left is getting too left. Im not real pleased with what I see on my side of the fence either. Too much fanaticism. I'm hoping the pendulum will swing the other way after awhile and even things out a little more.
I still wish there was a good 3rd alternative to either side.

There's not a lot of hope for the dems. I cut and pasted that post and posted it on a democratic party forum and now I'm getting flamed there too. Imagine what it is like to get flamed by 100 guys like me.
