Shameful Things ... Failure of Principle
SEE HERE The rhetoric that gets ratcheted up to advance policy advocacy is disgraceful and that disgraceful behavior is not limited to the left which is over the top but equally disgraceful when practiced on the right. What we truly need is thoughtful, principled, and carefully analyzed policy options that address the difficulties, not these "solutions" that everyone insists on advancing and calling anyone that opposes them racists or worse. Red State calls it and it's a solid critique. We need to call out all the people who practice despicable rhetoric that reduces to namecalling instead of thoughtful analysis. Until we have real principled and virtuous people in government we will continue to see this slide in values and rise in tyrannical rhetoric which soon enough issues in direct tyranny.
