Here's our discussion point for the week: how can we start a real conversation about liberty?
We have two sides yelling at each other rather than talking to and with each other, it would seem. Partisan politics seem angrier and more polarized than ever.
Worse, both "sides" seem to live in entirely different realities altogether. If you're on one "side," two million people descended on Washington just one week ago, and if you're on the other you barely noticed when "the 60,000" people showed up in D.C. -an insignificant blip on the radar.
We live in such different realities because we don't trust each other. We don't trust each other because we suspect the motives on the other side. If the liberty faction in this country wants to make a difference it is going to have to address and refute the notion that we are angry birthers, racist rednecks, and paranoid survivalists.
Let's have a brainstorming session right here, right now on this comment thread. What can we do to foster trust, open the lines of communication, and get people on both sides of the aisle to really consider what we have to say?
