A comment here has implied that Democrats and Republicans both are more or less equally responsible for the decline in the level of public discourse.
I’m not going to take on the comment when Digby has already disposed of that line of reasoning.
Not that I think Democrats are inherently the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I will point this out: Republicans turned me into a Democrat.
Now I am all those things.
Because I care about the blood that has been shed to create, preserve, and protect the ideals of the Founders.
I care that the government of the United States of America should stand for something other than invading civil liberties and torturing perons whom the Current Federal Executive doesn’t like.
