Very well said and I totally agree.I just think it's amazing how these people consider themselves as "champions of freedom" when they hate - and I mean HATE - our freedoms. They call themselves "patriots" but they HATE their countrymen. They call themselves "followers of Christ" but they HATE the poor, the sick and the disabled. They hate people who utilize government services, but they use our libraries, police, fire departments, roads, bridges, schools, dams, and eventually social security and Medicare. These are the people who go to town hall meetings and yell, "keep your government hands off my Medicare!" I just wish they understood how much they're missing - so many people easily identify these people and treat them like children. We warn our friends when they're about to meet, "don't talk about being gay (or being islamic or immigrating or anything of the sort)." They live their lives in an echochamber, and they'll never realize it. That's our fault. We need to stop the kid gloves.
One of my favorite democrats is Alan Grayson. He does not use kid gloves. We need more like him. Democrats keep turning the other cheek and that makes these butt plugs think they have power.
