In a commentary written for CNN by Rudy Ruiz he asks us to '"keep an open mind". It appears on the surface to appeal to our better nature and consider the opposing point of view. He compares it to a national illness of closed minds:
"As people shout over each other and tune out diverging views in town hall meetings, the health care debate is proving to be symptomatic of a major ailment threatening our nation:
A contagious culture of closed-mindedness threatens to suffocate our progress as a society."
There are times when we aren't justified in doing something just because we can. Sometimes the only reasonable answer is "NO". If the people have made their will known, who has the right to second-guess them? Should the legislature ignore the citizens and vote for the bill? Do they know best what's good for us?
Mister Ruiz writes a pretty good plea. It appears that the socialists have been reduced to pleading. Well, I'll keep an open mind.
I just won't let my brains fall out.
The answer is still "NO".
