    I didn't talk about civil rights for gays.  I didn't talk about abortion.  I didn't even talk about terrorism, and I barely touched on support for the military--and yet, what I had to say still had a huge effect.

    I really wish you would write a diary outlining your responses to these questions. I'm am really interested in hearing what you have to say on these issues.

    Have you ever thought of running for office?  Because in this Dem's mind, based on what you've written, you are exactly what the party needs.

      I was doing sooo well Saturday night at a party discussing corporations and the financing of elections.  He was listening willingly, even told me that I made him think about something he had never thought about before, and admitted that he came from a long line of Republicans but that he just assumed he was one because that's all he knew.

      I had him.

      Until...he asked me about marriage rights for homosexuals. Except he didn't use the word 'homosexual'.  The conversation went downhill from there and ended with my husband yelling at me to stop.

      I wish I had kept my calm and not turned into a screeching lunatic.  I would like to blame the whiskey but I have a feeling I would have reacted the same way had I been sober.

      While I still stand by my adamance at trying to correct this man's bigotry, I do wish I had approached the situation differently.

      Please, teacher, I am willing to learn!
