Original message This Is Why A Majority of Americans Don't Support Liberals/Progressives
How is it that Liberals/Progressives who's stance on issues are in line with a majority of Americans cannot translate their position into elected majorities across the nation? How?
Just read the littany of hand-wringing posts about the death of Bin Laden. Read how so many of us either don't believe that he's dead, or is upset that he wasn't brought to trial, etc.
This need to feel sanctimonius at all times, this need to feel morally superior, this need to reject ANY connection with your fellow citizen's joy over the death of a man that killed thousands of innocent people all over the world, this need to feel above your fellow Americans is what dooms the entire Liberal/Progressive agenda.
I'm glad that Osama Bin Laden is dead. I'm glad that we killed him. He was engaging in war fare against the U.S., and his tactic was targeting and killing innocent people. He was engaging in this war fare even before 9/11. Killing him was the right and correct course of action.
Greyt thread!!! :D
