I would like to propose an idea to all debaters in this forum who regularly disagree with me on Constitutional and Rights issues. This is as much for me, as it is for everyone else to participate. I want to suggest that in THIS thread, people who normally have issues with my positions, ask me specific questions about specific issues, and let me try to address them to the best of my ability.
I do not desire to start a flame fest, or a shouting match. I want to debate law, rights and Constitutional issues, not philosophy issues, at least in THIS thread.
The reason I am doing this is because I have people who claim to be self professed liberals, and conservatives, accuse me of being from one of those sides because of the way I frame my debates, or reply to others debates.
I am doing this to try to close some of the divide here, between myself and those who do not understand my position fully, yet label me as they see fit.
I welcome all questions from all people, but mainly I direct this thread to those that often find themselves saying "that damn Osborn and his (liberal/conservative) stance."
I am neither Republican or Democrat, nor do I think that should make a difference in how we vote. Parties, and party spirit are one of the evils of free nations, since they become divisive tools to be used to further divide the nation, for other purposes which are usually to some groups advantage over anothers.
I am asking everyone, from ALL parties to DROP the party line, and become independent for the good of the nation.(not independent party, I mean become a non-supporter of ANY party)
Please, regardless of if you like me or not, like my philosophy or not, like my ideology or not, LEVEL the guns at me and let loose the barrage. We need to clear the air, and address the real problem, which is that we are ALL being used for political purposes, and most of us don't even know to what extent.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and hopefully to respond.
