13. to be fair

...you're definitely on to something in encouraging that we respect and appreciate the presentation of differences of opinion (within reason) and differing rationales for supporting one Democratic candidate or the other. Certainly unity will be required to ultimately prevail over the republican's eventual nominee. A strong and unified coalition of individuals with similar issues and concerns is, I believe, the most compelling argument for associating ourselves with our Democratic party.

We come to the political process with our often disparate ideals and interests from diverse regions around the nation and we seek to reconcile those into action or law in our legislature. That effort should certainly be reflected in our efforts in discussions and debates outside of the actual political arena. I think we should be secure enough in our own beliefs and views to allow others to be represented beside them as we advocate and reconcile these among ourselves. The more we're able to allow other Democratic-minded views to air, the better opportunity we have to air our own agenda in response or even dissent.

Thank you for advocating in defense of those debates.
