I see a lot (and I mean A LOT) of political posts on here, and I've noticed that the conversations seem to get rather heated. But we're all citizens of our country, we all love our country, and in that spirit, I have a question.
What do you like about the other side?
Personally, I'm a liberal. But I agree with conservatives on gun control (to name just one, there are others). I believe you can't say that the framers didn't intend the Second Amendment as written while holding the rest of the Bill of Rights inviolate, as I believe it should be. To me, gun control is too often a slippery slope. I believe in regulation but I don't support a handgun ban (which is not a part of the Democratic Party Platform, but is a deeply held belief by many liberals).
So what do you agree with or like about the other side of the aisle?
I have always been a democrat but, I do agree with republicans that the states should have more power with certain things

I'm a conservative but I too have things I like about "the other side". As if there are just two sides!
I like that the Dems make things like health care a higher priority. I don't agree on the means usually but I agree on the ends.
I like how the Libertarians prize individual responsibility over government regulation.
