Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people.
-Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962)
These three elements: ideas, events, and people are, in descending order, what this blog will discuss. My intention is that this blog truly becomes a discussion, and hopefully contributes in some small way to our national political discussion. We will be reasonable, civil, form our arguments logically, and not shy from controversial topics. My personal political persuasion will remain withheld for now: if you feel strongly about a topic, attempt to persuade me, I’ll listen and hopefully other readers will as well.
This blog will also not shy away from Religious issues as well. Religion and politics are intertwined, and despite the best efforts to separate them, the two continue to overlap in ways that do affect our society, public policy, and collective values. Therefore, religious issues are very much on the table.
Now, that’s out of the way. Lets get to it.
