We on my board have ONE really serious liberal and I can't say enough about what a blessing that is.

When one considers that we're all intelligent posters, differing views without the static of media or speechwriters can sometimes state the issues of a particular political mindset MUCH more elloquently. We've managed to understand that opposing viewpoints are merely quests to ascertain whether we've gotten it right or not.

It's happening here as well.

The respectful debate is a dying art. Debate has come to mean 'fight'. It don't mean that at all! It's the art of putting whatever your experience has taught you out there to the masses in order to compare it with other's experience that just might teach you something about a subject.

Ever hear the expression, "That guy just HATES to be wrong!"? Well, I submit to you all that most people who get that said about them deserve just the opposite! They LOVE to be wrong. They'll fight tooth and nail to hold on to their wrong beliefs.

I hate to be wrong. Truely.

That's why I listen with respect, questions, and sometimes outright examples of the opposite, to see if I'm missing something.

I'm pretty excited about this board. The more boards like this on the Fool, the better.

Long live The Cambridge Group!!
