I have to stay completely neutral here.

I'm an agnostic. I have no "pro" or "con" here. I hope I don't disappoint you too much, because I really like you.

Whatever life is about, it is mostly not about liberal or conservative or any other political label. Life can't be about politics.

Life to me is about nature. I just live freely and as justly as I can see fitting the time/place. I don't particularly have a religious belief, but i'm best described as an Otherkin or Therian. I have spiritual familiars, living in pulse with the physics that make what's possible around me.

oooo I agreed shocked? well I'm not cuz Im me! Sane people are the same when you get down to it. I traveled far and seen so many people and heard so many stories from good men and women liberal and conservative. Love is the only thing we all have in common. Its corny but I bet at the core people have the ability to care about others, and for whatver reason they may have locked it away, But its still there. remember that next time you see someone with opposing views

Now what I find particularly interesting is I know there are more meanings for the word left, but they seem to have been LEFT out for some reason. We can find some evidence of the other meanings under the word 'gauche', which is French for left.

gauche and Being Left-handed

Gauche is one of several words that come from old suspicions or negative associations surrounding the left side and use of the left hand. In French, "gauche" literally means "left," and it has the extended meanings "awkward" and "clumsy." Presumably these meanings came about because left-handed people could appear awkward trying to manage in a right-handed world - or perhaps because right-handed people appear awkward when they try to use their left hand. In fact, "awkward" itself comes from the Middle English awke, meaning "turned the wrong way or "left-handed." On the other hand, "adroit" and "dexterity" have their roots in words meaning "right" or "on the right side."

There's kind of a beautiful symmetry to the fact that all the negative meanings of the word left have been censored out of the dictionary.
