Actually, we kind of came to this understanding once before. I'm not a "liberal" but I am a democrat. I'm very much middle of the road and would vote for a moderate republican if one ever showed up. I've voted for republicans almost as much as I have democrats in my life. It's just this current crop of republicans that I have a problem with. Generally speaking, back before 2000, republicans were pretty good.<quoted text>
Something is wrong here, you and I agree with something. I think we have misunderstood each other. I might not speak as eloquently as you or spell as good but we do agree on more issues than you might think.
In general, I think we, as a country, went insane after 9/11. The internet hasn't helped things much either. We're changing as a country and I don't much like the direction that we are going.
Neither side has the answer but for now, one is just slightly more palatable than the other. Emphasis on the word "slightly."
