Imagine my liberal surprise when I discovered that the latest reader on my blog was referred by the site: the Sarah Palin Information Blog.
My curiosity tossed caution aside, and I ventured over to “the other side,” to see what was what.
Oh… it was just another Word Press Blog that was automatically–though unintentionally–linked to one of my WP posts because of similar content: Health Care–albeit with opposing views.
I quickly left that glowing red site for more familiar tones, but then felt compelled to return to the logic of “their” argument.
And that’s all I found:
logic and argument.
It was sound and sturdy, but had no heart.
As a Magna Cum Laude graduate myself, I know how to argue, but as a 45 year old mother, I choose to rely on my heart– and my heart knows this:
The time has come for us to act more fully on behalf of others–not because it makes a better bottom line or because it offers the best argument of its time, but because there is heart in it. It comes from the RIGHT place.
Health care isn’t a Republican issue or a Democrat issue or even an Obama issue, it is a human rights issue– and there’s nothing human or “right” in Sarah Palin’s rebuke of health care for all.
