Respectable debate is missing

I appreciated reading “Respectful debate.” I have quit reading those letters that are full of little (or big) jabs at the perceived “other side.” What I want is the debate. The debate is not over who is a blue state or red state. How silly! Every state is a mixture of all parties. Every state contributes positively to our society. Through the debate, we can find a better road than any side alone can build.

I want to leave my children as unpolluted a world as possible so they can have opportunities to to make a living. One has to go with the other, or it won’t work. Poverty hurts all of us! Pollution hurts all of us! We need all of us to be well-informed. To question those we agree with, not just those we disagree with. Come on!

Whether we agree with President Bush or not, every one of us needs to be looking at as many policies as we can, really learning about them and voicing our concerns to our representatives! If you only listen to Fox News or Free Speech TV, you are getting a one-sided view. Please open your perspective and educate yourselves.
