A friend of mine recently sent me a very interesting flash movie with the suggestion I put it up on this site. I found the movie very interesting, but after some consideration I decided not to post it here.
In my opinion, part of being a patriot includes constantly questioning and criticizing your government in a quest to create the best government possible. Perhaps I am an idealist, but I have little interest in the aims of particular politcal parties- I want to have the best world, the best country for all Americans and for all of society if possible. I believe the founders of our country also believed that open political discourse is essential to a successful democracy, and that is why they adopted the first amendment.Unfortunately, I believe sometimes political jokes, views, etc, can come back to haunt you when they are made in too general of a fashion.
I will not be censoring myself in the future, but I want to at least mention that I am consciously saying to my readers that I do not plan to specifically address any "political" agenda on this page. The one acception I will give regards most of what this page involves- when I have a view on a particular issue, I plan to address it. Personally I believe more people and society would be better served if we all addressed politics in this fashion, but alas, that is not the popular view.
This probably will not effect the content of the page too much, but I wanted to say something about it.
