@AO: Your tears of lamentation are a sweet, delicious nectar that lightens my heart and rejuvenates my soul. Perhaps you can distill your wounded smug self-righteousness into powdered form so that I can enjoy it at my leisure and not only after a crushing election victory! Please continue explaining about how you and your comrades have a monopoly on intelligence, empathy, sanity, and reason. How does it feel when the cruel Neanderthals reject your enlightened wisdom in favor of self-determination and individual liberty? Why don't they recognize the inherent rightness of your cause and submit to your gentle, beneficent authoritarianism?
