In Yahoo! News - MoveOn to Democratic Party: 'We Own It', we see MoveOn's real colors. What they fail to realize is that they probably cost John Kerry the election. They honestly believe themselves to be in the mainstream. Apparently the lunatic fringe of the Democrat party is taking a page from Julian Bond's book and seek to alienate the swing voters who lean true center and realize that forging alliances is better than creating philosophical warfare.
I am not advocating that either side give up its ideals. Rather an intentional search for those things on which we can agree on for the good of the country. I know a number of my fellow republicans and conservatives are saying things like, "keep listening to them", or "yeah, more of the same". Folks, we dare not wish for opposition parties so far on the fringe as to become irrelevant. I really don't want to see us become as arrogant as the Dems were when they controlled BOTH houses.
