As I’ve mentioned in a few of my latest posts it’s time to move on from just following the national news and hoping for a savior to appear. I’d like to start reaching out to others in the community to hear what they have to say and find out a little bit about them. I’ve asked the Portly Politico (Tyler Cook) to participate in a little cross platform event. We’ll each come up with some questions for the other and post the answer on our own blogs. I want to see how my experiences and opinions differ from the next guy in our community. I think it will be fun and maybe we’ll both learn something.
I’d also like to expand it out to other folks out there. I am interested in talking to the people in our community. I don’t need any personal information and don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable. I’ll make the questions very general and feel free to answer them as carefully as you like. But I am interested in knowing whether a lot of people think the way I do or otherwise. And I like stories. I’d like to know how people got here.
And if anyone wants to join in by asking questions I’ll post them and we’ll see how it goes. If I do think any question is too revealing I will intervene by saying so. But in general I want everyone to remember that we are on an open website and all the world can see it.
So I if you are interested leave a comment to that effect here or send me an email at the site (email@example.com) and we can discuss what you are interested in.
I think the kind of questions I will ask are things like, “What convinced you that normal Republican politics were no longer going to be enough to keep America free?”
I will post the questions that I asked the Portly Politico tomorrow and the answers Tuesday. He’ll post my answers to his questions on Tuesday on his site.
