What Dave said: “If we have to blame anyone, let’s take the blame ourselves. We thought we could get by without getting involved. If ever it was obvious that we must get involved, now is that time.”
I guess I’m one of “those people,” (however my voting record is clearly bi-partisan), but when it comes to fundamental and foundational convictions, I guess Dave and I prove that political persuasions, like the earth, can be round. When it comes to philosophical or political arguments, two people can head in opposite directions and go as far away from one-another as can be imagined. But when they share certain fundamental convictions regarding character and responsibility and mutual-respect, they often find themselves meeting up with one other on the opposite side of their perceived differences.
