What is up with all the controversy posts:
Conservatives vs Liberals (& vice versa)
Democrats vs Republicans (& vice versa)
Why must you "lump" all people together under one label; generally used in a negative connotation
Is it really that hard to remember that we are all individuals; and because we may feel one way on a certain topic dosen't mean we "blindly" walk some imaginary party line.
Rather than making posts about "why are liberals so immoral?" or "why are conservatives so uptight?" (made-up examples; I hope those aren't real! LOL) -- why not make posts on the actual issues/topics and invite an open & civil discussion or debate.

I don't believe the world is black & white there are always shades of gray. It's wrong to kill someone, unless they are a threat to you. The US Justice system allows for degrees of everything. I know very few people that toe their party line and those IMO are very narrow minded
The Monkees, of all groups, had an awesome song called "Shades of Grey". It's slow and sappy but the lyrics really hit home for me.

When the world and I were young, just yesterday,
Life was such a simple game, a child could play.
It was easy then to tell right from wrong,
Easy then to tell weak from strong,
When a man should stand and fight or just go along.
(chorus)But today there is no day or night,
Today there is no dark or light,
Today there is no black or white, only shades of gray.
I remember when the answer seemed so clear,
We had never lived with doubt or tasted fear.
It was easy then to tell truth from lies,
Selling-out from compromise,
Who to love and who to hate, the foolish from the wise.
It was easy then to know what was fair,
When to keep and when to share,
How much to protect your heart and how much to care.
