I don’t like to write about politics. But I have to. At least some of the time. I’ve lost friends over little differences. Good friends. Over little differences.
So when I stopped being a Democrat during the Gore/Bush election, it was a culture shock, a paradigm shift. I raised my kids to be good Democrats. One is a liberal teacher. The other is a fervent Obama supporting knitting shop owner. I’m persona-non-Grata dinner guest in my own home. Yes, they treat me with love and respect. But there’s an “edge” I wish wasn’t there.
And, yes, I’ve read “The Righteous Mind” , in which this University of Virginia, Johnathon Haidt, a neuroscientist, shows how liberals and conservatives are neither right nor wrong,,, … …just different!
So it is with some reticence that I come out of the closet, as it were, about my political leanings. Even joyous taxi dogs have to mark their territory from time to time, and I am a Conservative doggie. Not Russian Wolfhound, with his head in the air. Not a barking Chihuahua, biting at your heels. Not the sagging-jowled bloodhound of Looney-Toons, wondering “Which way did he go, which way did he go. duh?! Just a thoughtful psychotherapist-writer-citizen who thinks America has gone a bit too far “left”.
Here’s a sample of his views.
