One of the greatest things I ever heard (don’t know who said it) was the question of whether something was worth using was answered by if it had been used against you.
You could think of a myriad of examples but the one that stands out is the Republicans. They voted in the 2010 midterms and turned things red. Then they voted in the primaries to make things go further to the right. Unfortunately the liberals won’t do the same thing. If exactly what they want isn’t on the ballot they’ll stay home. Look where that has gotten us!
