Thomas the Rhymer BS: Pelosi gets her ass kicked (61* d) RE: BS: Pelosi gets her ass kicked 19 Nov 06

But Guest...

This ridiculous quest for power and the fanatical achievement of ultimate authority are both seperately and together perversions of the 'essence' of Democracy. Spin is the 'tool of choice' consistantly used to corrupt the 'democratic process' by emperors and dictators alike.

Democracy isn't about 'matches made in heaven'. It is about gathering accurate information, thinking for yourself, communicating your beliefs clearly and ingenuously, and responding/bending gracefully to the will of the 'well informed' majority.

...and to disagree without intimidation.

There is no 'gridiron' here with a scoreboard, spectators, won-loss stats, and time remaining in a game destined to be won or lost in a winner take all sweepstakes... Were all in this together, and our system is (was?) designed so that we could/should all be able to compose ourselves with an inclusive posture towards people of all political persuasions. The only opposing team on this field is a combination of misinformation and predjudice... and they are us.
