I’ve been contemplating a bunch of political things for a while now, and I’d like to discuss them. I think this is a good forum for that sort of thing because I have a lot of friends with a large variety of opinions, hence I’m going to start putting up a question for discussion every now and then.
Since I’m going to touch upon some topics that will likely prompt heated discussion, here are some ground rules. First, I’m going to hide the question behind a cut. If you’re not interested in politics, don’t look. Second, I will chastise anyone who uses ad hominem attacks. Attack someone else’s argument all you want, but don’t attack them as individuals.
OK, time for the first topic.
