Re: “"Liberal" Doesn't Always Mean Liberal

You all assume to much. I've lived in Berkeley longer than the times Josh and others have researched. The perspective between living that long and researching 20 miserly years is too enormous to describe here. And you'd have to pay me to do it. Cutting to the chase, Preservationists and Progressives both tend to exaggerate to the point they makes themselves archetypes, where over labeling and creating complex issues make it pointless to try for a comprise. The fact is everyone votes only their interests. Let's get this straight, reasonable persons do not pass votes for the other side. Unfortunately that leaves puffing personal interest which tend to burn the truth and that is an unfortunate casualty. Please! Don't get philosophical with the truth. To me, that's too much like arguing wrong way to a stop sign. Dylan once said it well, "You want to truth? You can't handle the truth." Of course it begs the question. What is the truth? It's simple. Berkeley is a Big Company Town where to be labelled correctly, 1) Progressive means to expand the university's interests and; 2)) to be a Preservationist means it is not happening if it costs me my interests. The result to my interests, which is neither side, is a dire need for the kind of truth to make an informed decision. The person in the middle (Moi) is foundering for who and what to vote for because picking a Preservationist over a Progressive is like choosing a mephitis over a skunk for a pet. Once you get passed the smell, it's a vote.
