    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Those are few and far between, eh?
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    There's a few around, but having more would always help.

    I agree, in very general terms. However, I've seen some really great posters that were under 20 and some really awful ones that were 50+. I think that, again in general, the more actual life experience one has, the better decisions and thus the better posters they make. Life experience, and lack thereof, does certainly color ideals.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    They are these days, but thats because those values were socialized into people due to the efforts of the past. There is a good reason for things like black history month and what not, the month itself is not important, but it does indoctrinate kids to believe in racial equality.

    You are right about gay marriage. That's why I said partly. But gay marriage is not a big issue outside the US.
    The same thing will likely happen about gay marriage. We will no doubt have something like gay history month in our schools in the next decade to achieve the same results.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I too was a liberal until I got married and had children. With age comes wisdom, I voted for Regan that is around the time my politics were becoming more conservative. Most of my friends growing up and into my twenties who were also liberal are now conservative. I can think of one exception. My friend Rob. Rob is still a liberal. He is unemployed and receives ssi checks which he spends on marijuana and beer. He is a 50 year old bevis and butthead type that lives in his 74 year old mothers basement. Everyone else grew up and became responsible productive citizens.
