Political discussions with my family are crazier than professional wrestling matches, minus the chair throwing and spandex. As a self-appointed referee, I can truly appreciate a moderate point of view. That’s why I enjoy reading poligazette.com so much, I decided to donate a little design work.

My kids have asked what the word means, and my best definition is this: Doing the right thing even when it’s hard, or owning the consequences.
