Purpose and Rules

22 Apr

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of reading blogs and other comment boards where vitriol and rudeness are the order of the day. The “owner” of this blog considers himself a conservative — “True” conservatives would consider me a moderate — and “Far Right” conservatives would, no doubt, consider me a liberal. My purpose in establishing this blog is to open a dialogue among liberals, moderates, and conservatives on various issues that are directly, or tangentially, related to politics in America. I want to understand why people hold the views they do, and welcome reasoned arguments that will change my own mind about issues.

Recognizing that we often feel passionate about our beliefs, I intend, if any notice is taken of this blog, to allow passion to come through, but only in a gentlemanly or ladylike manner. I reserve the right to delete any postings that I consider in bad taste (cursing, name-calling, etc., etc.)

This is my first attempt at blogging, so I’m not sure anyone will ever post to it besides me. But I find no other forum where the motto might be, “Come, let us reason together”, so I’m giving it a shot.
