First off, I want you to know that I listen to you when my work schedule allows me to, and I respect you and feel that you are sincere in what you say. You also give very strong arguements (in my opinion) on a number of the political topics that are being debated so heavily these days, that the many hosts on the right have to switch to their ideological attacks/defenses because they cannot discount what you say with statistics or facts.
That being said, I also listen to Michael Medved (who seems to be the more sensible and respectful of the conservative radio line-up) and his topic the other day was something close to this: Why do those on the left have so much hate for rich people? And, over and over again, he would flat out make the claim that liberals, in general, hate rich people... and that liberals do not want people to become rich, etc. We both know that that is a flat out lie. It is not true, and I was somewhat suprised that it was coming from Medved. I wouldn't have any problems if he had instead said that liberals want to redistribute some of the wealth, tax the rich more, or something like that, because that is true. But, earlier on that very same day (I believe it was the 1st of July) on your show, you made a few comments to the effect that the republicans (or conservatives, I don't remember for sure) want the rich to stay rich, and the poor to stay poor. Now, I feel that you are sincerely expressing what you believe, where as I think that Medved knows he is saying what he said to advance his political agenda and his audience. I consider myself a libertarian (complicated, because from there I lean more left then right) I feel that I can give you a different perspective on it, maybe more of a neutral one?
So here is my question for you; Can you give it more thought, and then perhaps soften your tone on that specific area? Maybe I am wrong to put so much faith in the country's leaders in both parties (I hope not) that most of them fall to one side or the other because they truly believe that it is best for our country, our economy and the people, even if they are misguided. I know that the huge majority of the conservative population though, definitely wants the poor to rise out of poverty and join the middle class.. they honestly believe that the best way to do that is without government intervention; that the wealth will "trickle down" from the rich, and so on.
Anyways, I respect your character and your fight, I just feel that in this case, you are misrepresenting one of the key ideas of the right, and that it will help your arguement by not putting it that way.
