>>I love the way die-hard democrats love to portray Republicans as
the scourge of the Earth.
Well, "scourge of the earth" is a bit extreme, but it's not only the
democrats that use this sort of demonisation. How many times have you
heard conservatives using terms like "leftist liberals" in the same
sort of tone?
>>Its the democrats that believe in Murdering defenseless babies
(they call it pro-choice).
Yeah, and the conservatives believe that they should decide what a
women should do with her body, because they must have some sort of
moral ground on her, without knowing anything about WHY she would
make this choice... And even better, let's force abortion underground
so that it's nice and dangerous...that ought to discourage these
murderers. I'm not so keen on abortion, but I do think it should be
the individual's choice, not the state's...
>>Its the democrats that believe in giving
murderess criminals a chance (they call it REHABILITATION which has
proven not to work) to get out of jail only to go out and murder and
many more defenseless citizens.
Jail doesn't work too well either, for the record. Further, NOT
everyone in jail is a murderous criminal... many of them are people
who screwed up, made mistakes, messed up their lives, some of them
are in a sense victims of social problems and inequalities. Do you
think it's a coincidence that there is such a high proportion of
Blacks in jail, or that they are inherently more criminal? No one
does - almost, anyway. Crime occurs partly as a result of larger
socio-economic circumstances. Many criminals do need some sort
of "rehabilitation" - to get back on the right track. Prisons don't
do that. Yes - reform is needed, let's start by thinking about
prisoners as people, not simply bloodless criminals....(I do believe
that the majority aren't.)
>>I could go on-and-on listing all the failed
and errant democratic ideas and political agendas that only server to
the American people.
Yeah, like civil rights. That was pretty, er, liberal. Nothing quite
as errant as democracy, eh?
>>I have been listening to the Oils since 1987 and I have never heard
about or support any of the ridiculous Liberal Left Wing agenda
you believe in. Get a grip and try listening to the Oils with a bit
intelligence instead of trying to cubbyhole them into your own sorry
democratic liberal beliefs.
Um, I think that "liberal democrat" is a pretty good descriptor for
the Oils politics. You've been listening to them for 15 years, have
you ever listened to the lyrics? Not that the Oils and the "liberals"
will ALWAYS see eye to eye. But I do believe that they share many of
the same ideals and values.
sorry so long,
