Over the last couple of years, I have seen (and been involved in) bickering back and forth on the left vs. right issues. There seems to have been a
heavy onslaught of finger pointing from the right as to the poor state of things that have been created by the left (Nazi, commie, socialist...you
name it). Now with a changing of the guard, there have been some issues that have already come up in the 112th Congress.
What I find interesting is that those that previously supported the right are now varying their stance from thread to thread. I won't post specifics,
per T&C. What I am seeing is the historical righties getting caught up in a scenario where they presented with irrefutable evidence that "right" was
in the wrong (or guilty of things they previously accused the left of). In those cases, I see specific members saying something along the lines of
"well, both parties are evil"... Then, I toggle to another thread and see the same member taking jabs at the left, while praising the right.
The reason I bring this up is because this is an interesting time. A time where folks previously supporting one party are now confronted with what
appears to be an identity crisis...or have reached a point of desperation, in which they feel that they must defend their "reputation" by deflection
and "designer" pandering to the tastes of the individual thread. It's interesting because the pot that formerly called the kettle black now appears
to be both a pot and a kettle...and a ladle to boot.
This truly is political madness. My party failed. Your party failed. So, lets see...can we possible drop the political bickering and have constructive
discussions minus the right vs. left paradigm? Or shall we mirror congress and continue the status quo?
Just to make things fair, certain members that defend the left has been no less guilty in the past...and present.
Am I becoming moderate?
Nah....I'm just tired of the finger-pointing....I would prefer to save my finger pointing towards Washington D.C.
