Are you "mainstream" according to Liberals, Media, & Hollywood?
"Mainstream American" or "Mainstream Democrat?"

"Liberty is a word which, according as it is used, comprehends the most good and the most evil of any in the world.  Justly understood it is sacred next to those which we appropriate in divine adoration; but in the mouths of some it means anything, which enervate a necessary government; excite a jealousy of the rulers who are our own choice, and keep society in confusion for want of a power sufficiently concentered to promote good." Oliver Ellsworth (A Landholder, No. III, 19 November 1787)  Reference: Essays on the Constitution of the United States, Ford, ed. (146); original The Connecticut Courant [Sheehan (4:4)]

Thomas Sowell - �Journalists cannot serve two masters. To the extent that they take on the task of suppressing information or biting their tongue for the sake of some political agenda, they are betraying the trust of the public and corrupting their own profession. It is bad enough that politicians betray their followers as a matter of expediency. It is real chutzpah when they demand that journalists betray the public trust as a matter of principle, for the benefit of politicians. Some journalists�too many, in fact�do jump on the bandwagon of particular candidates or particular political agendas, and end up filtering and spinning the news as a result. Those who are on the �global warming� bandwagon, for example, endlessly repeat that the polar ice cap in the arctic is shrinking�while filtering out the fact that the polar ice cap in the Antarctic is growing... Whether one is for or against the �global warming� crusade or for or against Democrats or Republicans in the White House, the truth is the truth�and filtering out facts is betraying the public that has turned to the media for information. It is legitimate to argue for or against those who believe that global warming justifies one policy or another. That is an honest expression of opinion. But filtering the facts is not. Some in the media seem to think that a noble cause justifies withholding facts on the other side.�

Have you decided? If you are a "mainstream American" will you continue to vote for "mainstream Democrats?"

Whether you agree or disagree with any of liberal views, have you let your elected officials know what "mainstream" means to you? http://www.congress.org/congressorg/home/ Otherwise a judge may decide for you.
