    I view the more partisan democrats as essentially without ethics, without a code to guide moral choices.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Immoral: things that hurt other people
    Moral: things that help other people
    Neutral (but can be done with no problems): everything else

    Morality isn't that concise.

    The basis of my morality is that concise.

    Using your parameters for morality in your case, it is immoral, under any circumstance to harm anybody. What if someone can be helped if you harm another person?

    I put up a statement of morality to define terms.

    Essentially, I view the democrats as unethical. I hold this view because there is no dedication to fact or truth within the party. Lying is not only tolerated, it is encouraged, provided it serves the party. Among the core democrats, right and wrong are only measures of what promotes the party.

    In short, I view the democrats as unethical because the party operates as a sociopathic organization.

    Apparently it depends on what the meaning of "is" is.

    Well all I can say is that only a total hack would agree with you. The same would be true if someone made such a statement about Republicans calling them all liars and a sociopathic organization. It is a statement that only a hack would make.

    The definition of moral is below for purposes of this poll:

    moral: Concerned with the principles of right and wrong behavior and the goodness or badness of human character.

    So the question is, are you personally concerned with the principles of right and wrong behavior in regards to your own actions and the goodness or badness of your own character?
    Sort of a broad definition. Don't you think?

    What is "right and wrong?" What defines "goodness" or "badness" of human character?

    Personally, I'd consider anyone willing to have an abortion on an elective basis to fail both criteria outright.

    Someone else might think that I fail the test on the basis of my rather hard-nosed stances on issues of foreign policy.
