I wanted to stick with the political theme from my last post as it is at the forefront of many of the discussions that I have had recently. I can say that I am a liberal but I can honestly understand and sometimes empathize with the conservative mindset. There are those who close themselves to the alternative points of view but In order to understand the full scope and to see the bigger picture it has always been impressed upon me that keeping an open mind is essential. To do that we need to take account of each perspective. This week I was fortunate to come across the below interview and news pieces about the different candidates and politics in general. These were very enlightening.
