  •  So, on embracing the opposing argument... (0+ / 0-)

    Our nation being a democracy, and President Obama being the candidate who I feel is most clearly and consistently representative of democratic principles, it's no question to me, who I'll be voting for.  

    Me, I don't belive in magic bean theories. I'm afraid that a lot of people do, though.

    Me, I'm of the impression that it will certainly take more than a clever smile and an overactive spin machine, to make US even more of a democratic success, democratically. I'm also aware that probably not so many people are really concerned about democratic principles, in their day-to-day lives.

    I don't think anything so oblique as love could win the election, but if we can at least embrace and understand the opposing argument, maybe the fact that we've got one US to live, work, and play in, maybe that could be of some help, in this one? (Is that too navie, still?)
