You and your blog have given me a sense that there is a light at the end of this tunnel of political darkness. I consider myself a liberal, but agree with most of what you put on your blog. Our country is certainly headed in the wrong direction, our spending has spiraled out of control, we have brave young men and women dying in Iraq, and those in power only want to talk about illegal immigration (and not seriously reform it) and wedge issues like gay marriage that only further divide these "United States."
I have lived my entire life in the south and have thus been surrounded by conservatives for as long as I can remember. You have broken the mold of what I consider to be a conservative and have helped me realize that there is hope to once again unite this country. You have helped me to realize that what unites us is far more than what divides us. This Congress and Administration have done nothing but played upon the fears and prejudices of the voters in this country and have in the process become the corruptness they ousted in 1994. It warms my heart to know that there are conservatives out there that are as disgusted as I am and yearn for change - and that liberals like me and conservatives such as yourself can collaborate to piece this country back together.
