Screw the Tactical
I say, fuck it! Go all out. All this jockeying for position, trying to be reasonable and moderate-right bullshit is worthless. Standing up for principles, human rights, equality, etc. isn't just a considered and balanced stance. It shouldn't depend on a pollster's results before commiting to action. Politics may be a careful dance but it shouldn't always be so. Sometimes it's best to go with the heart, with the soul, with righteous fury. Am I talking about the Dems? Soul? Righteousness? Aren't those Republican words? Hell, no!
The D's are a minority party in the government at the moment. They seem to be acting like with just the right words, just the right tactics, they'll eventually be back on top. That is such crap! I figure as the minority party, they gain power. Wait, GAIN power? WTF? Yes, with less to lose, they could take bigger risks rather than few risks. Repubs have been running roughshod over D's for years now. R's talk about Bipartisan but what they mean is for D's to bend over for them. Those R's have the rude values of a bully.
And all this from me, a mild guy who generally doesn't care what the Dems do. Screw the tactical: Light the Fire!
