    Could this be a Tealiban counter-force?

    I wish I were more optimistic, but our society seems to have a habit of chewing up the good things and spitting out their broken, disheartened husks onto the hard ground. (Perhaps "Life us Short, eat dessert first"?)

    I seem to recall hearing some wingnut saying something like, "We took 'liberal' away from them [i.e., allegedly turned the word into an insult], so they started calling themselves 'progressives'. Soon enough, we exposed that for the misdirection that it was, so now they are left to resort to this."

    Labels do help one identify the enemy. And it is a war, right?

    Well I guess it needs to start somewhere... I'll be curious to see if it pans out. If the GOP is against it, it can't be all that bad.

    There's nothing wrong with giving it a label: Centrism. It's the political standpoint from which things actually get done.

    This is not "centrism", that is the middle ground between left and right. This is about my ideas do not fit into a box, I like so many of us am all over the map. This is about listen and think, leave your boiler plates at the door.
