Why this nihilistic view is dangerous and dumb

I’ve heard this a lot — that the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are that same thing. Two sides of the same coin. Eating two sides of the same crap sandwich. They’re both part of the ruling class. …

Over the course of my life I went from child, to Church of Christ attendee, to Christian, to disillusioned Christian, to a weird agnostic-theist hybrid, and then to atheist. …

Not too long ago, I got a letter in the mail. In that overall-unhinged letter was the accusation that the Democratic Party was super evil. Here, read for yourself.

“… you have associated yourself with the most dangerous political party in the history of this country. The democratic party [sic]…

I’ve exercised most of my life. As a kid, I ran around constantly. Chasing, soccer, being chased, soldier, Lazer Tag (the original), or climbing every tree and rope I could find. I had some off-time because of life being life, but always got right back in the swing of things…
