Read responses to Overstreet’s “Undecided Voter” appeal
I’ve found myself becoming more, not less, saddened and conflicted the closer we get to November 4. Casting a vote is difficult enough as it is, but this year, things have escalated to the point that it feels like a vote for either candidate is tantamount to committing a mortal sin. Rhetoric, venom, and bad faith abound everywhere I look, and I sometimes wonder if folks from both sides whom I respect and genuinely like could sit down together for even 10 minutes without getting into a brawl.
All of which explains why reading through the many thoughtful, reasoned, and reserved responses to Jeffrey Overstreet’s recent “Undecided Voter” appeal has been something of a balm to my soul and a breath of fresh air.
