They would have fought Bush on NSA spying and the drone bomb slaughter Obama has ordered in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and elsewhere too.
Alas, because a Democrat has ordered these things, many partisan Dems fall all over themselves to explain why these policies are not really totalitarian and murderous.
Same goes for many of the Daily Kossacks and the like on the blogosphere.
Here at Perdido Street School, we don't teach blind fealty to party, nation-state or ideology.
We teach staying true to principle, truth and honor.
That's a lesson that rarely gets taught these days and it's one that is sorely needed.
I voted for Obama first time around,
I did not vote for him in 2012.
I wouldn't have voted for him if my vote was the one vote standing between some hanging chads and a Romney presidency.
I will not be threatened into voting for the lesser evil anymore - the lesser evil is still, in the end, evil.
