    Regardless of what you think of these people, let's take a look at the other side of the coin and imagine... Now, what if Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Rielly, Sean Hannity and others like them were telling us the absolute truth? How would you react if you suddenly found out that every word they have been saying was the pure truth? Think about that for a couple of minutes... How would you react or feel?

    I already feel that way...

    But I don't believe the average lefty can ever feel more pissed than they do already.

    But it really is a healthy exercise to try and see things from the other perspective. And sometimes you learn a thing or three whey you try it out.

    those types will never tell the full truth.


    Just a pipe dream.

    Also since their "truths" differ so greatly it is impossible that they are all telling the truth.

    I would start questioning reality in general.

    But what if they were telling the truth and laying out the real facts. Just for the sake of conversation, what would you say then?

    I would begin to believe in miracles?
    I dunno for sure as it is something beyond the humand mind to comprehend ;)

    they all say truthful things form time to time but fully truthful for a sustained period. Just impossible.

    No, seriously. What if they were telling the truth. Just imagine that for a minute or two. What would you have to say then?

    He is not asking you to believe them, the question is, what would your attitude be if you did believe them.

    Actually, I think the emotions of many lefties are the same way. There is a large amount of angst on both sides where people feel the government has sold the citizens down down the river to the special interests, that the opposition party is out to bankrupt the nation for the benefit of a few well connected rich guys. That is why you see so much profanity and short temper in the political realm these days. Elections are just a matter of cash and politicians are just out there to milk and bilk the public. There is no longer any real feeling that the other side might be honest but misguided. It has become the powers vs the nation, and the nation is loosing

    Ohh yes we are destroying our country from within. And we are getting guidance and help as well, from those very same people that you expect me to imagine to believe speaks the truth and only the truth.
