Aaron Burr: What a bastard.

I’ve been trying to avoid this for quite some time now, but as you can see, I’ve failed.

My problem is that I care too much and have far too much to say. Now I’m not going to presume you care all that much about why I started this blog, if you care what I have to say at all. Let’s face it: we’re all here to be entertained. I’ll do my best. But be warned: I don’t do this for entertainment value alone. I actually care about these issues, so don’t be surprised if I get a little passionate at times.

Also, don’t expect to agree with my opinions all of the time. I try to be balanced, but when it comes right down to it, I have more respect for truth and honesty than I do for fairness… Or your feelings.

That being said, I look forward to hearing your thoughts and viewpoints, too — almost especially if they differ from my own. I mean what my name implies: I want a duel. Not because I’m looking for a fight, or because I have some strange death wish. I want the opportunity to benefit from the type of real debate we used to have in this country, the type of debate that leads to solutions and understanding. So please, feel free to disagree, just as long as you’re respectful. 🙂
