I applaud your thinking, honest I do. I am as appalled by hypocrisy as much as you are. However, the moral high ground has never gotten us anything. The reason for this is when both sides don't play by the same set of "rules", the side that does play by them ALWAYS loses. Rules are restrictive by design. That's why liberals ignore them. And the side that always loses says the exact same thing - "we are morally right". And that may be so, but the problem remains. Being morally right doesn't get you a win. We need to use the same tactics on the liberals that they use on us. It is a shame to say, I agree with you there, but unfortunately it has become a necessary evil in our struggle to save our conservative values from obscurity.
