He can't do it by himself.

Part of the problem, I think, is that politics infuses pretty much every issue that we try to plan for: health care, housing costs, taxes, social security, climate change, energy costs. What our politicians do or do not do about these issues makes a difference to us. Differences of opinion will come up.

I don't know if it's possible to discuss differences of opinion without a flame war errupting. I'd say the first RE board has shown it's not. At some point "discussing the issues" seems to turn into "arguing about politics," which is an entirely different kind of converstion. But to the extent that exchanges here wander into areas of political policy, I think it'd be great if we could argue our points respectfully - even when (especially when) we disagree.
