I just noticed something...

Bush is the first popular vote loser ever to be re-elected...

Quincy got trounced in '28 with the Corrupt Bargain and all...

Hayes didn't even run again in '80...

And Cleveland came back to win in '88, booting out Harrison.

Interesting...

I spoke with a couple shortly before the election of 2004. Most of them were pretty bitter.

I would tell them the same thing I tell the Nader voters on campus:

"Go to hell, you g idiot". (Greens are very unintelligent in my personal experience).

let me see if i get this straight -you're clearly disappointed about how Gore lost in 2000 due to the defection of liberal Democrats to the Nader/LaDuke ticket, and yet you want liberal Democrats to leave the Democratic Party and join the Greens because you perceive us as being the main reason why the Dems simply cannot win a national election,

How hard is this to understand:

If you spend all of your time bashing liberal Democrats when right-wing Republicans run this country, you're basically supporting right-wing Republicans.

I think you don't give a sh**t that they control this country, and so you have no useful advice for the Democratic party, since we don't take advice from people who want us to lose.

I want left wing Democrats to lose, definitely. I want sane, moderate Democrats- Warner, Bayh, Bredesen- to win. They won't get a shot at the nomination with extremists like you in the party.

People like you have ruined the Democratic Party. So, once again: become a Green. Why deny yourself ideological purity?

so, which is it -do you want us to stay, or do you want us to leave?

I dislike Greens not because they cost Gore the election- I supported him, but I didn't particularly want him to win- but because they're far left idiots. I would say that to any far left idiot I may encounter, regardless of party affiliation.

And yes, I would like you fanatical leftists to become Greens- you and Jfern in particular, if you're talking about Forum members.

so, being the angy and bitter asshole that you are, why don't you compile a complete list of all the (active) Forum members who are currently Democrats that you would like to see join the Green Party?  by all means, i encourage you to do so.  in fact, you could start a thread on it, and ask the moderators to sticky it.

You're such a pansy. No need to get so emotional, especially since you're the one who brought the subject up. There's also no need for a separate thread (as you suggested in a poor attempt at sarcasm). You are very stupid, aren't you?
