For several years now, I have been trying to figure out why my Conservative views are so different from my Liberal friends. Both of us feel that our views are correct and we both want what is best for our country; we just disagree on how to get there. What puzzles me most is that my Liberal friends refuse to even discuss politics which not only strains our relationship but, considering the seriousness we find our country in, hinders us from getting closer to the truth so as to be informed voters.
It seems that IQ has little to do with our differences because both Republican and Democrats have supporters with high IQs. The main difference seems to be that we have different sources of information and the media is peddling Hate and sometime lies.
The Liberals main source of information comes from the Liberal biased New York Times, Hollywood, CNN, MSNBC, Chris Cuomo, Brian Stelter, Don Lemons, Lawrence O’Donnell, Morning Joe, etc. while the conservatives rely on FOX NEWS, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Dinesh D’Souza, Mark Levin, Candace Owens, Governor Huckabee, etc.
What is lacking is a healthy and respectful debate between Liberals and Conservatives that enables us to get closer to the truth. Too many of us are lazy and just listen to only those sources that agree with our limited opinions.
The patriots of both parties must have multiple sources of information and be able to change their views when new credible information is discovered.
