This country needs both sides of the political aisle in order to get to the truth, or at least the best plan. The reason why I brought this up, is recently, I accidentally published something that was supposed to be a private communication. I was writing to a liberal friend and talking about a situation where I felt that liberal thought was being surpressed. Well someone read the communication and took exception to it. They thought I was trying to deny them the right to their conservative opinions. But I really do believe what I said about needing both views.
Let me tell you about some conservative friends of mine. This is a group of guys, and one woman, who have done a lot of things I haven’t and maybe couldn’t. Conservatives and liberal, we’re all joined together in our love of writing, and I would like to think, respect. I may not agree with some of them, but that doesn’t change the fact that these are people I’m proud to call friends. We meet, we talk, we get along, and to me, that’s America.
I guess that’s more or less what I wanted to say, no matter how ungracefully.
