involves really attempting to be informed.
Society as a whole is better off.
It means seeking out as many details about the issues as possible and forming rational, not emotional, opinions.
Personally, I believe that people who constantly major on the minor and deflect from the issue are just people who are frustrated because they don't understand WHY they have to think so hard and still come up with nothing. Infuriating!
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

I don't agree with everything that Grace says. But her attackers wouldn't know that, they aren't really interested.
Personal responsibility is a dying quality. Even our highest leader uses blame to justify his agenda. This only works so long, so enjoy feeling vindicated for the time being, because it's coming to an end.

There is a growing segment of Americans who do NOT want to take Responsibility for their OWN lives. They are OK with the government controlling their lives. It's a sad reality...

I think we can blame the public school systems for that... no wait... the parents? Who's job is it to teach that right? Not only personal responsibility but a sense of civic duty and pride in one's active role in their destiny... Most people don't have that. And when they removed patriotism from the classrooms, and mom and dad didn't step up to the plate... well it's a down hill thing from there. I do think MANY people argue on emotions. It's why I couldn't be around CM much during the election... I have so many strong opinions but was told I was an idiot or a sheep or uncaring for holding them- people often deflect from the actual questions or find excuses to make them seem more emotionally correct...

I may not always agree with Grace, but I commend Grace because she debates the issues and I respect her because she stands behind her beliefs. Ohhh. and she is willing to put herself 'out there" in the name of helping people become aware of the issues (no matter what side they are on) and she doesn't do it Anonymously posting behind a question mark.. :o)
