While I am certain that what follows will end in someone believing I am taking their side of a potential issue, I am not. I am taking a side and a stand, but I am not writing this "article" as an advocate for one political party or another. Quite frankly both of the major US parties rather disgust me right now. I am sick and tired of having to choose “the better of a field of evils.”

Lady Justice, featured above, has been a symbol of the United States Judicial system for many, many years. She hold in her left hand a scale and in her right a sword. Her eyes are blindfolded. These three elements have meaning. The blindfold secures impartiality from circumstance, acquaintance, and emotion. The scales suggest reason and balance are deciding factors. Finally, her right hand is prepared to deliver swift justice pending the verdict of the scales.
Political Correctness has eroded the blindfold from the eyes of justice causing her to falter in her resolve and making what was once impartial now partial. Consequently, political correctness will not be found here!
Okay. So I'm opinionated. So are you. We don't have to agree or even be on the same side of an issue to have a mature discussion about politics. Here are the ground rules for political comments on my blog:
- Be Polite (No name calling simply because you disagree with me. Besides, name calling only shows the limit of your own intelligence and tends to bolster me and my position.)
- Be Factual. By this I mean, support your opinions with verifiable facts. (I'd like you to be honest as well, but some people have lost that capacity.)
You do not have to agree with me, and I want to have an open, honest discussion/debate.
Thanks for your cooperation.
