I normally ignore (Connie) Schultz's viewpoint piece in the paper, because in my opinion it is filled with half-truths and its goal is to further her agenda and her husband's political career. Due to the tile "just like you" I read it. I grew up with a similar family background. I have family members that run the gamut from conservative to liberal. I believe that women should have equal pay for equal work. I believe that people should not be persecuted for their beliefs or lifestyles as long as they don't harm others or break the law. Most people value safety, voting rights, immigration reform, grandchildren, pets, etc. We are all people after all, it's rare that you can't find some common ground with anyone Her suggestion that "liberals" are the only ones that do care about the above issues and that Obama's opinion is that only one that is correct is insulting, in my opinion.
