Re: “Stay the course

Thank you Autumn. I agree that we can not compromise an inch on the value of equality or tolerance under the law, not even in the prioritization of expressing those values. When equality is threatened for any individual or group, it is immediately the priority. Aside from being a moral absolute - we have to assume that no one else will stand up for those threatened minorities. Votes can be swayed in other ways. Arguments can be re-framed. An opposition party can halt the erosion of rights even in the minority. For inspiration, think of how good the Republicans have been at being a legislative roadblock - even from 2008-2010 when they were the minority in the House, and Senate. Civil liberties are much harder to re-win than votes.
