    DU rule # 2: Members are expected "to support Democratic candidates for politcal office."
    Edited on Sun Aug-21-11 10:57 AM by panader0
    Will those who openly advocate against Obama quit DU? Will they be TSed? Perhaps they can find a forum that doesn't have rules
    like those here at DU. Disappointment is very understandable, criticism is fine, it is well deserved in many ways, but to actively oppose Obama and state you will not vote for him, or to say you hope a Republican wins, while it may be your opinion, is not what DU is about.
    I expect this to be flamed, people want to voice their opinions, but those opinions should follow the rules, no?

    7. I think that line will be drawn the day Obama gets the nomination
    The purge will be pretty epic.
    Yes, welcome the purge.

    37. Can DU survive with only 10 members?
    Doubt it.

    38. Who decides if politicians deserve the label Democrats?
    You're advocating support of ANYONE just because they have a D next to their name. You wouldn't continue to support someone on your favorite sport team if they continued to give the opposition more points. Why do it in politics? Which could actually affects peoples lives in a really bad way.

    3. I will gladly support Obama...if he's the most progressive, anti-war, candidate on the ballot.
    But, my vote still belongs to me. Not to the Democratic Party, any particular candidate, of DU.
    Yeah! Speak truth to power!

    What a bunch of morans.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    74. Hi all - While we are obviously allowing a broad range of criticism of the Party and the President at this point in the election cycle, please alert any post you feel is inappropriate. We'll review on an individual basis. Thanks. Locking.

    May the FORCE be with you!
