I expect and hope there will be confrontations of ideas. I hate echo chambers, give me a lively debate! Also, while we are at it, if people could study and practice effective persuasion that would be great.

Unfortunately, all I ever seem to get from Democrats I talk to are Ad Hominem attacks. " Guns are bad, you are a nazi to oppose banning guns!" kind of BS.

Voted democrat and intend to vote to gun-friendly democrats in the future (if they even exist anymore), nazis are 90% of the reasons I have guns.

10% is cause they cool as fuck.

I think what you want is critical thinking and valid argumentation. Not just persuasion, since you could have terrible ideas but with persuasion people with believe you regardless. Critical thinking aids people in evaluating ideas for what they really are while valid argumentation allows for ideas to be dissected better.

It'll be even more fun than arguing with the shill accounts, and might actually produce results. Bring them on I say.
