The funny thing about being a centrist is that whenever you get in a discussion with a conservative, you end up looking like a liberal, and when you get in a discussion with a liberal, you end up looking like a conservative. And you always look more extreme the more extreme that person is regarding their views.
A few days ago I found an interesting article over at Negative99.com. The article, a 4th of July post, was basically a list of what makes America un-beautiful. The writer, WarAxe (who, dispite this thread, is actually one of my favorite bloggers), put forth some views which were heavily in contrast to mine. The resulting discussion pitted me against a few people, and while I stand by my views, I was pretty much the only one in disagreement with what WarAxe wrote.
Frankly, this is a discussion you should see for yourself and, if so inclined, one where your input would be appreciated, regardless of whether you agree with me…
…or whether you’re wrong :-D.
