  •  That's a naive point of view. (6+ / 0-)

    This website is populated by people who are passionate about politics. There's the newly active and the old vets, and everybody in between. It's a reliable bet that virtually all of us (minus the usual contingent of pass-through trolls and troublemakers) vote, every chance we get. We don't all agree on any politician or policy or even about what needs doing from the bottom up in all aspects of our political system. The nature of the political beast.

    The attempts by some diarists to command subjects and issues on this website, and police the opinions that members are allowed to have/voice is... a pointless waste of time and energy by overgrown children. A majority of us have little patience for temper tantrums, no matter how much kicking and screaming and breath-holding accompanies them.

    Nobody paying enough attention to keep track of news and analysis of this country's financial and political predicaments is going to stop voting because they find out the good guys and bad guys are largely interchangeable depending on what issue is highlighted and what day of the week it happens to be. It has always been thus. Critical thinkers are a dime a dozen on this website. We really don't need any hall monitors trying to force our thoughts and opinions into line.
