    Is your point that you are wrong? Cuz the thread does have a topic, and it isn't Obama.

    The bit in bold particularly bothers me. Everyone needs to "live by the parameters of the movement"? Does that include individuals who are not conservative and who do not desire to live like a conservative lives? I thought individualism was a conservative trait (not that our conservatives would know authentic individualism if it punched them in the nose)? How far is Cardenas willing to go to force others to "live by the parameters of the movement"?

    At any rate, demanding ideological purity certainly is not convincing. I'm one of those rarities who do not believe that any ideology actually correlates to reality one-to-one, and that the mark of a successful ideology is how well it adapts itself to the conditions of material reality, what it can trade off and where it can hold firm. An insistence on purity makes me less convinced, not more.

    Second paragraph of the thread-launching post refers to ". . . . the conditions of material reality . . . ." That lets in just about anything, unless of course you're determined to restrict discussion to lefty agit-prop.

    I am not limiting the discussion at all. I am pointing out when some one tries to divert from the embarrassing reality of the topic.

    You're right there is no need as you didn't have point.
