Many of my liberal friends seem to expect me to be sorry or feel bad that I’m a conservative libertarian minded patriot. I don’t feel that way at all about them. My views allow for theirs. This is most interesting when people who KNOW me pass judgement on me rather than my ideas. Demagoguery is destructive and devastating. Debate and dialogue are the cure. Decisions require voting rather than demeaning morality judgements. Respect given is respect received and vice versa.
If I have made anyone feel diminished I apologize. That is never my intent. My opinions and actions are mine. I like it when we agree but it is not required for friendship and love. Free speech is messy but freedom Is like that. Stand up for what you believe. Be. Love. Serve. Repeat.
Relationships are what matter. Period.
