    Informed and intelligent does not require you to be in agreement or even to be right.

    Which, btw, is a great indictment of what we call 'politics' these days -- lots of name calling, little useful discussion outside of echo chambers.

    So much easier to preach to the choir.

      Not all, just most. The intelligent ones may be doing it out of greed and denial is a great blinder of the truth.

        I can see the basis of useful discussion here.

        Whoops -- there's that damned dyslexia again.
