  1. Very good list, Todd…especially agree that we need more personal responsibility (a lot more). Guess my only addition – cliche though it may be – is less talking, more listening. Keep it up, Handsome.

  2. More. Jesus’ teaching about poor
    Less. Cutting safety for most vulnerable

    More. Accepting historical truth
    Less. Denying that conservative anger isn’t race based

    More. Decisions made on facts
    Less. Falling prey to fear and hysteria

    More. Set policies based in reality
    Less. Delusion that you’ll win the lottery so low taxes are in your favor
