As someone who left the so called “Right” ie Republican party in 1998 with the determination that I would seek and follow truth and reason regardless its origin or where it led, I’m thrilled to see others from the “opposing side” (I have to chuckle when I say that) coming to a similar conclusion. I also think it is critical for us to call out the terrible acts committed by the fringe and the blind eye or wink wink nod nod by political leadership on both sides and thank you for doing so. It can be difficult to criticize your own.
The political parties have become what George Washington feared most.
Human beings pretty much want the same things in life, we just have so many different ways we believe are best for getting there.
Recognizing the faults and problems in our own camps is critical if we ever hope to find common ground and cooperation.
