I applaud you for looking to open your horizons to view and understand what many in your world refer to as “the dark side”.
We are not all unintelligent neanderthals. Precious few in our camp are white supremacists, clinging to our gun rights so that we can more easily kill minorities and abortion doctors.
I remain one womb shy of fitting into your described “ISO want ad”. Nevertheless, I extend an offer to you and/or any of your friends on the left who are capable of honest discourse, an opportunity to engage in healthy dialogue that offers an alternate perspective from your normal fare.
