I have always enjoyed great fiction; stories someone dreamed up that spark the imagination and intrigue the mind. I love stories that make you think.
There are always many ways to get your fiction. There are great books, great movies and I’ve enjoyed many of them.
What I appreciate most about great fiction is that someone had an idea, broadened it into characterization, and then plotted a story, then they dedicated themselves to a conclusion meant to entertain people who are otherwise not entertained.
All of this appreciation, however, is totally absent to me when you apply fiction to politics. There’s nothing entertaining about a lie.
The problem is that each of us likely don’t know any smart conservatives. That’s a problem because we need them for this debate that Ann Coulter says liberals are afraid of.
But are there actually no smart conservatives, or is it we just don’t know where to look? What does a smart conservative look like? What does one sound like? The average liberal asks these questions because the average liberal doesn’t ever run into smart conservatives.
Maybe YOU think you know a smart conservative. I don’t. To be fair, I don’t get out as much as I used to, but when I DID get out a lot I didn’t run into any smart conservative then either.
