It's time these DLC guys were put out to pasture. We do not need to ape Republican ideas, rather, we need to surpass them on an organizational basis.
We can do this quite easily, because our positions are in fact, morally superior to Republicans, and is really, at this point, a question of "moving in" strong people into the churches, schools, and society to re-take the culture back from conservatives.
The Al From's of the world want to do it the easy way, but that will screw Americans.
Look to how "Evangelism Explosion" works. Look to how Mao seized power in China, gaining the support of the peasants. These are the paradigms that are needed to take back America.
