The difference between the Left and the Right in America

While listening to John Boehner’s interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on his description of the Tea Party protests, the following occurs to me. Even if not entirely true, it is the perception that is most prevalent.

The RIGHT shows up with guns and signs, backed by the Second Amendment and attempts to force others to their will.

The LEFT shows up with pens and blogs, backed by the First Amendment and attempts to convince others of their position.

Guns and force win in the short term. Thought and conversation is tenacious.

About Rufus Dogg

I'm a dog who writes a blog. It is not a pet blog. It is a real blog that talks about real ideas. No, really. I do my own writing, but I have a really, really cool editor who overlooks the fact that I can't really hit the space-bar key cause I don't have thumbs. I talk about everything from politics to social issues to just rambling about local problems. And, sometimes I just talk about nothing in particular. Google+
