Funny how the democrats and liberal minded pple shut the fuck up after they lost the election.
Graceful losers don’t whine. Graceful winners don’t gloat.

Like I said.
Whats the point. I would not classify myself as either/or in the political scene. Win or lose, I select the man and his stance on the issues most important in my view. Which means of course, someone with an opposing view would quickly slap a label on me. Why do we need to pigeon-hole people? Make stereo-types? I dunno. We are all in it together on this little blue orb.
Even though I don’t agree 100% with some of the other people around me, I still respect their views. They have opinions and ideas too. Some of them darn good ones I expect.
TG – no whining or gloating here…
But reasoned discoruse is the lifeblood of democracy. No one should ever “shut up.” Duster, have you ever read Mill’s " on Liberty"? If not, I’d recommend it as a great place to start in developing a sense of the place of discussion, consensus, and dis-sensus in a pluralistic democracy.
Did the left wing lose the last election?
Seems not, I'm sure the Labour Party won, and the Conservative Party got another severe kicking.
