I have been ignoring my blog for some time. Today, I felt inspired to at least update my latest article to be published in the Star Tribune. I never included the link in this blog like all of the other articles and letters I had written that were published in various publications. So I decided to include this one, of which I am very proud.
It is personal, raw, and was incredibly difficult to send to the Strib. However, I felt an obligation to society to write it after a ridiculous, almost-parody-of-what-liberals-think-conservatives-believe Commentary about entitlement programs, including Social Security Disability.
So I wrote it. I sent it. It was published. I effectively "came out" to everyone who read it as a disabled Republican. It was a very personal issue I chose to air in a very public way because the misinformation included in the original Commentary article I was responding to was so very wrong, insulting, etc., that I couldn't let it stand.
So here's the link to the original article.
And here's the Counterpoint I wrote in response to that article:
I'm proud of what I wrote because it educated people about what most conservatives stand for and told my truth in the best way I could tell it. Please read.
