republican-fearFirst, my full disclosure: I am neither Republican nor Democrat. I feel like both parties have some things right and some things wrong.

However, one thing I do not like is how the Republicans seem to be motivating their party members these days… fear. It’s just wrong. Admittedly, the Democrats have gone to the other extreme – blindly singing while Rome burns. But there has got to be a happy middle.

Also, the Republican tendency to make Obama the devil himself is also wrong. Yes, he has made some bad choices. But please don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. (Sorry for using too many metaphors today.)
