Why Liberals Attack with Emotion, Forget Logic

“The degree of one’s emotions varies inversely with one’s knowledge of the facts.” – Bertrand Russell Part of what convinces me of my convictions is the rationality associated with them. When one can set out the facts, and, outside the spectrum of emotions, come to a conclusion, that is where one finds the truth.
