This guy writes in very similar ways to how I think. He wrote this about 11 years ago but I think it’s still very relevant. The lines have changed, the definitions of what it means to be liberal and conservative have been moved to favor more extremist views. Hell, right now, “moderate” is a dirty word to many. It isn’t that liberal values have taken over, that our world has somehow gotten worse. It hasn’t. For many, things are better now than they’ve ever been, despite the challenges we face. What has changed is our definitions. We’ve changed what it means to be a conservative in this country.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
