Democrats view politics as bloodsport. They destroy and eviscerate their opponents. They play to win at all costs.
Until Republicans do they same thing back to the Dems, they can expect more of the same. Dems have absolutely no respect for the hapless and naive Pubbies.
On the other hand, Dems fear the Tea Party. We have principles, we mobilize, we support, and we vote. We fight back.
Prove what you say...I don’t see anybody cowering in fright from the Tea Party. Too damn bad, but at least where I sit it ain’t so.
Of course it’s bloodsport. It is for all the marbles. If we lose our Republic, there is no tomorrow for the Rule of Law, or Freedom.
We all like to think of our Founding Fathers as honorable men.
But they knew the stakes, too. On 4/19/1775, we stood up at Concord Bridge, fought by the rules as the British dictated them, and got shot to pieces.
It was only after the British began their march back to Boston, and the Minutemen sniped at them, guerrill-style, that our side inflicted significant damage. The British were highly insulted that we didn’t fight “fair.”
When the gunfire starts, there is only one rule: He who wins, lives.
Our politics should be conducted the same way.
