I haven't written here in so long .. and I find myself longing to, daily. Changes in my life have given me less spare time but one of the main reasons is my daughter. I could not love this child more, but on politics we disagree. We don't just disagree, when we try to discuss the issues it makes her cry. I have never quite understood why except that she feels just as strongly about her views as I do about mine, and it distresses her to be so opposed to all I believe, and it distresses me too. But I never meant for her to see this blog, I created it using a pseudonym to keep it separate from my other non-political blogs and mainly - from her.
But she found it quickly, due to stupidity on my part. So Honey - please - do not read this blog. I don't want you to. I don't want to feel that what I say is directed at you - or worry about what you may be thinking or feeling about what I do write.
For this post I just want to say the difference between us can be described by some wise words from Rob Lowe - yes - Rob Lowe. He said "Democrats are long on empathy and Republicans are long on logic."
So Sweetie - you are a tender-hearted, dear, wonderful woman. I love you more than I can ever express. But please - allow me this space - this place - to talk about my beliefs without worrying about hurting you. And if you read this post and read on anyway - please try to be logical and not emotional about what I say. If it hurts you - just don't stay. Please.
I love you.
