As I go around to the various blogs I read, I sometimes wonder what I'm doing here. So many of them are so far from my political beliefs and values that my head begins to spin.
What first drew me in , were the differences...I find it fascinating to hear varying opinions and try to keep an open mind to other points of view.
But lately, I have found the differences almost painful. The divide between "the liberals" (whatever that means, anyway...as if people can only think one way and have no diversity) and "conservatives" is so great, that hostility seems to be all that's left in the middle.
I find it difficult to swallow. I want to keep reading the various blogs I read, but frankly have a hard time when the topics become filled with hatred and loathing.
It is a dilemma, because there are parts of these blogs that I so enjoy. I will not mention names, because there are far too many to count...I could not even narrow it down.
I wonder if this is a problem I alone experience, or if it is true for others as well.
