I don't deny that Americans always had diverse opinions. Certainly before, during, and after our Founding, it was as American as apple pie for a husband and wife to take a horse and buggy to the voting place, just to cancel out each other's vote.

And the temperature of those opinions go up and down.

Most would agree, that at this point it's gone a tad beyond where it should be. A raging debate between Right and Left that often yielded to consensus, is starting to resemble tribalism sans the knives, beheadings, burning at the stake, and scalpings.

And nobody....can wave a wand to stop it. It's gone white hot. We can however take steps back. Or have isolated cases in which we can find basic common things between us because I still believe that the toothless hick in Alabama and the MBA in Seattle don't want to see their kids be unsafe or hungry.

For starters.....I'd love a game of political cross-dressing.

Simply put: The Right should have the SAME level of skepticism of Big Business that we harbor towards government.

The Left, should have the SAME level of skepticism towards Government, that it has towards Big Business.

Immediate beneficiaries: The man in your mirror, and his descendants for a generation or two to come.

Time is running out.

Colin Powell was right. We Righties go bananas over Affirmative Action that'll educate some kids, but we rarely meet a business tax loophole, or tax affirmative action we don't like. Lefties do at times eschew business in the name of government when in effect there's potential to replace one substandard master, motivated by money........with another powerful master, only this one motivated by power.

That's about it for now.

Back to PA, where the world's most productive discussions are going on....
