Cause and effect on a comprehensive scale (#2723)

     This one was always going to be tough for me to write. Trying to communicate my vision for life and why I am a progressive/liberal. What conservatives see is simple, bad is happening so it must be punished. What I and others see is a system that fails most and bad things happen because of it. If you take the same people and put them into a system that rewards and treats all with respect then the bad that is currently happening will reduce significantly. Conservatives cannot grasp this. They only see what is and accept it. Much like the quote from Robert Kennedy, "There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?". We liberals want a better world that not only includes the best of what we currently have but also the best of what we currently don't have.
     Those that stop us from having a better world are those who already enjoy the best of what we currently have. They don't want change, they want things to stay pretty much the same and these folks congregate in the republican party. So it should not be a surprise or shock to comprehend that the republican party is not a party that includes all of us. They are the wealth and  hateful fringe party while the democrats are working to be the big tent party. We must accomplish the goal of being an all inclusive political party if we are going to represent the best of who we are. We democrats care about what the future of all of us may be and for all of us to have the best chance of a society that is modern and enlightened we must wrest political control away from the selfish republicans.
     It won't be easy since republicans utilize arguments focused on the simple minded. Those who don't dream of big and better things in life. Those who settle for little and somehow tell themselves they are not worthy of more. The pervasive ill running through our society must be addressed and republicans will not do it. They are satisfied to keep us all simple minded and wanting. Well that is deplorable and despicable. We democrats want us to be more complex thinkers and creative innovators. We democrats want a world that respects the life and dignity of all human beings.
