Guns and taxes.
Guns and taxes and spending.
Guns and taxes and spending and entitlements.
Guns and taxes and spending and entitlements and free speech.
Guns and taxes and spending and entitlements and free speech and war.
I could continue. But what I already wrote is just a small section of what our government is using to divide us.
White v black.
Rich v poor.
Guns v no guns.
High taxes v low taxes.
Free speech v limited free speech.
War v no war.
Have you noticed how polarized we've become? Hell, I'm just as guilty as the rest. I chose a "side". I'm a mouthy, opinionated SOB.
We're so busy fighting, blogging, tweeting, social media-ing against each other that the politicians just sit back and laugh and ride rough-shod all
Here's my offer.
I propose writing a series of threads co-authored with someone from "the other side". To show what we have in common. A calm, rational
approach towards the main topics of the day where we can find common ground. Where we won't be polarized by those in DC and elsewhere.
Threads where we can remove the rhetoric and look empirically at the facts and repercussions of the laws and issues that are passed.
Anyone willing to take up the challenge with me?
