Politics — Politely?!

Well, the stakes this year are too high to just sit at home, listen to the news and fret. I am disappointed by the shortage of rational, factual, civil discourse coming from any side. The candidates before us practically beg us to focus on style instead of substance — and indeed, they have given us precious little substance so far on which to focus! So let’s see if we can discuss what’s happening, and what we think about it, without resorting to hysterics and name-calling.

In my posts I will try to stick to my own principles of Critical Thinking, described elsewhere on the blog. I invite comments that adhere to the same principles, and I ask you to  hold me accountable to a high standard myself.
