High on assertions, low on content.

Sorry, your grandstanding is quite unimpressive, not to mention a tired exercise in preaching to the choir. This is all the same idealistic nonsense that I foolishly used to blurt out every time I didn't get everything I wanted. If you want to sink the whole ship because you don't like a few token votes on sanctions against Iran (I don't support them any more than you do, but I have this nagging "Big Picture" thing going on in my case) and a few other peace meal pieces of legislation that keeps rapid attack dogs like Krauthammer and Krystol off his back, you stand alone on that one as far as I'm concerned.

When you don't temper your rhetoric with nuance and accommodate the sentiments of the overwhelming majority (which is Neo-con/Progressive), you lose, and we have two glorious examples of this with Ron Paul in 2008 and 2012, to speak nothing for the continually glorious failures of the Libertarian Party at literally every turn at the Federal Level.

As I said in another post, this movement will never be ready for prime time if it's run by immature hotheads. End of story.
