The fiery political anger and fear in our USA election rhetoric raises the old question, speak up or shut up? Searching for an answer, I see relationships that ended when I delivered well intended but uncomfortable messages and others that grew deeper and stronger.
I usually avoid public displays of political bias except when to do so seems just plain immoral. This is one of those times.
I am very concerned about the influence of Fox News on my fellow citizens. I watch an actual speech on CSPAN and then watch a commentator on Fox News select a sound bite and spin the message in the opposite direction -- over and over.
I see the same thing on CNBC and CNN but to a much lesser degree.
That is why I urge everyone who watches the Democratic Convention to please view the actual event on CSPAN and make up your own informed mind. I hope we can share opinions and ideas across party and ideological lines and remain friends.
I hope this heartfelt concern will strengthen our relationship. If not, I'm sorry to see us part.
Wishing you inspired and informed voting.
