1) Take any of your political stances... if you were presented with simple, indisputable facts that showed that your viewpoint was incorrect, would you change?
2) Can you look at your beliefs and be willing to change them, or do you determine what is right and what is wrong by whether or not it comes from someone with a (D) or an (R)?
3) Have you ever caught yourself being more interested in being right than what the truth is?
1 - I hope so, I have changed a lot over the last decade. I was raised very conservative, and now I am much more moderate. Sometimes it is painful to change long-held beliefs.
2 - I tend to not comment on stupid things R's say, or stupid things they do, because I'm ashamed of them... not because I think they are always right and D's are always wrong. I usually agree more with D's on social issues, and R's on economic issues, but not always.
3 - Yes, and i always feel bad about it.
