I was kicking a few thoughts around yesterday morning about the whole conservative vs. liberal thing that I posted about a week or two ago. I was reminded of a statement I heard back when I was in college – “If you’re not a liberal when you’re young, you have no heart, and if you’re not a conservative when you’re old, you have no brain.” I was laughing because I may be the Oz equivalent of the Tin Man and the Lion combined. Just about everything about me has shifted toward a more liberal direction since I graduated from college. Now, I’m sure I still occupy a pretty moderate position, all things considered, but thing sure have changed.

But the sentence I came up with after this little thought process was something along these lines:
“I aspire to be as liberal as my brain will allow, and as conservative as my heart will allow.”
