I was listening to a financial show yesterday, while waiting in the car... Anyway, one of the
guys talking saying something that I think may be a common misperception. He said,
Democrats are a party of PASSION and the Republicans are a party of LOGIC
It was such a revelation for me, I had to write it down because I didn't want to forget exactly what he said, and how I felt at the time... It's strange that it happened on Independence day, too. It explains exactly why I haven't been able to identify with either party exclusively. I consider myself an independent.
I don't believe that passion and logic have to be exclusive in our lives (or our politics) In fact, I'd say that when I have been able to make a good decision, it has been a result of both - not in equal parts necessarily, but applied appropriately for the circumstance...
