Many of my liberal, moderate, and conservative friends focus more on the argument than the actual importance of having the argument. Agree or not, the disagreement of different political viewpoints represents the only true important factor in the rhetoric. We must never stop debating, never stop disagreeing, and never stop questioning because that is what democracy is all about. Democracy is not a polite and pretty entity; it can become fearful for the light-at-heart. When we stop arguing, when the rhetoric becomes one-sided, when any side is no longer willing to question, we achieve pure submission. Submission does not work in a democracy; submission is not liberty nor is it being free. The human race has not achieved the top of the food chain because we were submissive. The human race represents the uppermost part of the food chain because we are willing to risk all to get our point across. What does this all mean, there is no real democracy without passionate rhetoric! Regardless of where your political beliefs reside, be it left, middle or right, is not the concern, what is important is questioning our government to keep them honest and true to our best wishes. When we are questioning, were pro-actively taking the time to understand each issue that interests us, and affects us, as long as we independently determine our own belief at the end of the day that is true democracy. Read, write, and question everything!
