Debate Prep

September 25th, 2016 Posted by On Our Mind No Comment yet

Actually, I’m not talking about Trump or Clinton prep, but rather my own and that of other citizens. The Wall Street Journal yesterday had a fascinating piece contrasting serious policy debate, where elected officials lays out their beliefs while trying to decide public policy, from our current TV debates, where each individual basically does shameless self-promotion.  I loved reading

finding out that there was criticism of the Lincoln/Douglas debates as being electioneering rather than policy debates! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all knew so much that fact checking by ‘authorities’ would be redundant? After all, if we weren’t so ignorant, as a collective, candidates would have to stick more to the truth.
