Thoughts from the echo chamber – SOTU

A FaceBook post caught my attention today. On the heels of President Trump’s SOTU address, somebody wrote this:

This is what you start to see if you only read liberal media, and why I try read writers who support a spectrum of viewpoints. Let’s break this down.

By most accounts, the economy is strong under President Trump.
The Spectator says that the economy is “roaring.”
Vox says that stocks are up, but that only benefits the ultra-rich.
Fortune probably gives the most comprehensive report card.

But the overall consensus is that the economy is up, so the first part of this is not true.

The whole idea of destroying everything they touch is too vague to address.

But does the very presence of the GOP incite damage and destruction? I don’t see pro-lifers who want to put America first doing any damage. A strong America is good for the world. I’m so glad to see the return of pride in America, patriotism, and love of country. It’s healthy. It’s good. Loving your country doesn’t mean you hate others.

This is one reason I support free speech, especially for people I disagree with. It allows them to bring their thoughts out of the echo chamber and expose them to the light.

God Bless America!
