There is a simple problem with liberals. We are too laid back. Unless you tell us in a stern voice to get our asses up off the couch and report immediately to our draft boards for deployment to an exotic country with valuable national resources, we're prone to doing nothing. Don't get me wrong, we have our accomplishments. I myself watched all 9 Seasons and the first X-Files movie last month on Netflix. Why? I was feeling nostalgic
It's easy to imagine a scenario where you hit up a couple of buds to go throw rocks through Sharon Angle's campaign office only to be reminded again that they are "stoned", fat, happy, little hobbits too preoccupied with sex and o'deurves and Lemmon Haze to be up for a little campaign work. You take a hit from their fat pipe and decide yourself that it would be a lot cozier to park on their couch and watch Dr. Who on public television.
Unfortunately the right has no problem recruiting straight edgers who haven't been laid or stoned in a decade and have to pull a stick out of their ass every time they need to take a dump. The "right" is the natural beneficiary of the "highly motivated", the ones who truely believe in their mission to stop stem cell research. Yawn.
It's difficult to find a liberal who will even try to follow a stem cell discussion. I mean there may be an alternative band out there with the name "Stem Cell Abortion" (I'm just guessing here) but if you bring up stem cells in any other context at your party, it is just a polite way of telling everyone its late and time to go home so you can bang your hottie on the kitchen counter. Liberal's don't own guns, and if we do we have no idea where they are, or if they're loaded, or how to clean or shoot them.
Look at it this way, if someone sees you have a gun, they're not going to offer you any weed at a concert or anywhere else for that matter. Mostly, if we see you with a gun, we're paranoid from the weed and think you want to bust us. Liberals are "live and let live" kind of people. Even the conservatives recognize this, which is why they accuse the liberals of being soft on [insert social ill, ethnicity, foreign country, or "socialism" here].
Liberals are soft on crazies too, including the freaked out right wing nutballs who want to kill liberals, and somehow, know more about the Constitution, the founding fathers and the fundamentals of capitalism than the rest of us. We're all like "now let Sharon Angle share her thoughts with us". That's right, Liberals are all about "sharing." I know, its nauseating.
