206. I believe we all are a passionated group
Edited on Wed Nov-24-04 12:56 AM by AnIndependentTexan
The problem is our own passion can lead us to make mistakes. Let's take Dan Rathers. We might have helped him make that mistake without knowing it. Yet he made a mistake and we all believed in what Dan Rathers said. Most of us here at Democratic Underground were trying to prove he was right. Does that mean Dan Rathers was leading us onto a wild goose chase?

No, it just means he felt strongly about something. It also means his passion lead him into believing what he wanted to. That is the dangerous thing about being passionate. One thing about learning that separates passion is I am also willing to step aside. One thing that separates me from what Bozos for Bush is doing is I'm more then willing to stop and re-think things. If I make a mistake I'll admit it and I'll be humble enough to ask for advise. I'm also the type of person to leave things alone.

If you think I should leave then let me know. If all DU'ers feel I should leave Democratic Underground then let me know. I will personally stop coming here and I will personally stop posting if the members here feel I am a problem.
