Center Left Data Over Drama Perspective

I stand Center Right on the political spectrum but am firmly conservative on in all things US Constitution.

I have been engaged in practicing the discipline of understanding - standing under the beliefs & positions of others w whom I disagree & agree for that matter.

I highly recommend this podcast to Conservatives & Liberals who also embrace the discipline of understanding.
