Frecs: Gee, we might actually agree on a few points, amazing isn't it!?Frightening as well! Actually being in agreement doesn't surprise me. I think that part of the reason the country is so polarized is that we have a tendency to think of every issue as a battle between good and evil. This is a gross oversimplification. Personally I think people (whether liberal or conservative) are basically good, rational, and want to do the right thing. So if we just assume that the person who disagrees with us just might have a good reason to do so, common ground just might be found (I, of course, still reserve the right to call that person a stupid idiot if no such common ground exists).One problem is that today's issues are often complex, yet are often dealt with only in terms of political sound bites. It's one reason why I've belabored (and belabored and belabored...) the question of how we know things to be true. In my experience, very strong opinions are often based on very little or erroneous information. Nevertheless Frecs, now that I know you are "one of those horrible right-wing religious conservatives", I will have to automatically opposed anything you post.
