52. Excellent point, art

I had not thought about it that way before.

In light of what you say, then, why would any Democrat want to discount the votes in half the country? There is something fundamentally wrong with such a thinking process.

I also don't understand people who tell us what is going to happen and that it is what it is. I quit thinking that way a long time ago. About the time I feel certainty about anything, I find that life hands me a lesson telling me otherwise.

The truth of the matter is, it's hard to live with uncertainty.

Hmm, I think I just wrote myself into an explanation for a possible reason people do that.
