You said: "The absolute refusal to connect the dots on this issue is leading us to a place where we will not be able to even if we want to."
That is a monumental concern. I read your piece a second time as you've included much to think about. I also forwarded it to Dawn Stefanowicz, a Florida lawyer who shares our concerns, a specific NC libertarian think tank, and WND. Your words drew a fervently concerned response from those who read the story.
