Preface: I don’t always agree with Joe, but I’m always impressed with the logic of his arguments and the strength of his convictions. While some commentators and bloggers are focused on shock or blatant antagonism, I know that Joe’s heart is in the right place even where I believe he wrong. In this case, I couldn’t agree with him more.
Clearly, a loyal opposition is necessary for a democracy to thrive and if more of them were honest as Joe has been here, perhaps there is some hope that the strident partisanship indulged in by members of both parties will be quelled by a newer way of thinking – a way for us to collaborate as one people without abandoning our convictions.
Excellent article, Joe.
