If you let me interview you for a Medium think piece, I’d be happy to Venmo you $50.
This article-if we can even call it that-is born of the curiosity of the opinion of Trump supporters on the Woodward tapes and recent events in America with a focus on the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic.
And a focus on the choice whether to wear or not you or your friends have chosen to wear a mask, an action that’s become increasingly politicized.
Now, to put all of my cards on this digital table, I’m for wearing a mask but I’d be interested in interviewing someone who isn’t so my articles aren’t simply an echo chamber of my own opinions.
My ask is that if you have a history of supporting Trump and would be willing to speak with me about recent events, please privately or publicly leave a comment so I can contact you.
The first person to do so who doesn’t seem completely suspect, I’ll contact!
This is where things might get a little more abstract. My intention is to publish this article/interview on Medium and to do so, there is going to be a purpose, since I don’t want it to be spam or, simply, a transcription of two people speaking.
However, I haven’t spoken to you or it’s very possible that this article might get zero replies or responses. Obviously, I won’t use your full name if you’re against it.
My underlying purpose is that I’ve posted quite a bit about Coronavirus in the past but those articles are often one note. I’d like to connect with someone who has a differing opinion than me and see if we can come to a happy medium (no pun intended) or if I could understand their point of view better.
So, if you feel like you’d be willing to speak with me for half an hour for $50 (and I’m seriously sorry it can’t be more) about your views or, even, would prefer to do so via email, please post a comment on this little paragraph of an article so we can connect.
