There is certainly no lack of opinions on the Internet so why read me? What I have found is that most blogs are either way to the right of me or way to the left of me. Far left people think I am conservative and far right people think I am liberal. They can’t both be right. I think I’m still somewhere in the middle.
So why is there not enough rational discourse out there for us, the majority of Americans? By our very nature we Independents do not need to be told what to think by the screamers of talk radio and cable TV. Our moderation does not demand that we shout our opinions from the rooftops to be heard. It’s time for that to change. As the original Thomas Paine said:
Reason obeys itself; and ignorance submits to whatever is dictated to it.
We who are reasonable and engage in facts need to be heard. I hope you think so too.
