    It means the pre-conditions you placed before the possible question leaves the poll basically unanswerable to me. And others I bet.

    some times its okay to raise taxes, other times not, depends on the context.

    not unique to liberals though in my opinion

    This forum is rife with examples of the left and right debating the moral ramifications of certain actions. There are literally millions of posts discussing what is the most moral action to take. Just take one look at the abortion, gay marriage, waterboarding threads. The OP then asks whether the left exhibits "moral nihilism". The two possible conclusion one can arrive at after knowing all these facts is that the OP doesn't know what moral nihilism means or he is yanking our chains for giggles. A person with 12 years of education, as per the OPs admission, can't possibly lack that many critical thinking skills.

    Not at all. You appear to presume I established this thread for your purposes or perhaps the forums. Thats just not the case.

    I bet if he had just asked if we thought leftist were nihilist he would get a lot more answers. And some Lebowski jokes.

    The fact that you would ask whether the left exhibits moral nihilism, after discussing the morality of certain actions with many leftist, says otherwise. Do you believe that leftists are moral nihilists pretending to be moral?

    He lacks a lot of basic critical thinking skills. He has 18,000 posts many of which discuss the morality of things like waterboarding, gay marriage, abortion and yet he asks whether the left cares about morality at all. A person with a basic understanding of what it is they've been discussing for over a year wouldn't ask such a thing.
