Every day I see threads posted where somebody, mostly from the fringes of either side of the political spectrum, says something on TV or radio or posts something on a blog or website somewhere, and somebody here posts a thread that liberals did this or that, or conservatives believe this or that. As though everybody who generally has a point of view on either side of the political aisle should be lumped together with the wingnuts. I suppose we have a number of ideologues on either side who cannot see any ideas but those espoused by their party leadership, but I suspect the real number might be less than most assume. Hope so anyway, but I think it's likely that many folks around here would rather engage in an exchange of thoughts about many things, not just politics, without getting into a pissing contest. Or then again, maybe not. Do you want to talk, or do you want to fight?
