    It's like saying someone wants uniformity and variety at the same time.

    The better policy is to take the good with the bad instead of trying to lump together fragmented good pieces into some Frankensteinian creation.
    I said libertarian, not libertine. And I dont want uniformity, I want conservatism. Indeed here in CA, young conservatives are rare as hens teeth.

    I hear you, but conservatism has often had a libertarian view towards social policy, at least traditional conservatism has, as opposed to religious conservatism. As for your last line your opinion is noted.

    Re: The Reason Democrats Are Backing Gay Rights and Marijuana Legalization

    So long as the Tea partiers and the religious extremists control the GOP, they will be marginalized but not dying.

    The special election was not the central point of Cook's dire forecast for the Dems.

    You have provided lefty sources who have an interest in broadcasting the claim. For most people that's just advocacy noise.

    Hence why, IMO, we need a Centrist Party. The GOP has gone insane, which now leaves us no real alternative but to elect corrupt Democrats--like Terry McCaulif in Virginia.

    If the electorate want to evict a democrat, more often than not they are stuck with a Tea Nut, if not another crazy, backwards thinking Republican, who believes rape can't result in pregnancy or wants to impose Putin-like sanctions on gays, as the alternative. That, my friends, sucks.

    There is almost no one in the Repub party who "believes rape can't result in pregnancy or wants to impose Putin-like sanctions on gays," so you should really drop the baseless hyperbole. That sort of thoughtless mud-slinging has been the Dems' stock in trade since their defeat in 2010 but it won't save them in 2014.

    The counterpart to his attack is to claim that a wide swath of Democrats believe that islands float on the ocean and that if we put too many troops on an island in the Pacific that the island will capsize. Sure, one Democratic Party Congressman believes this and stated this in a hearing, but we didn't see an army of Democrats come to the defense of that idea just like we didn't see an army of Republicans come to the defense of the rape/pregnancy statement.

    I believe we would have had a different party by now, but for all of legacies in the current party.

    And you have an interest in making the unsubstantiated claim that it's false. For most people your claim is nonsense.

    I have no party and no interest involved. I'm more than happy to let others decide what is a valid point and what is not. You are an advocate; I am simply an analyst.
