Comment: Think For A Second

Think For A Second

Think for a second about this statement:

"'Antiwar' is the new position and wedge. It's how we instantly reach across lines and articulate for a massive and growing consensus in America."

That is not a wedge at all. It is a topic which unites. Wedges are used to divide.

I can tell you from experience (in online debates) that drones, NSA, Syria, and the IRS were all topics which were uniting Americans against the neo-con/neo-lib establishment. However, since Cruz started his filibuster, all of the common ground I shared with the left has disappeared. Obamacare is the wedge which will divide Americans across the old party-lines, and deliver the presidency to progressives. If Cruz knows this, then he is attempting to divide the populace at the expense of conservative victory.
