Though I sympathize with your thoughts, it seems neither of you 
believe in free and open debates.

Let the cards fall where they may. Otherwise we are no better than 

I think that you both have proved without a doubt that Sophistry 
rules political thinking. It is hard to be detached and dispassionate 
when your stuck in that frame of thinking. Or to practice Wu Wei and 
let things take their natural course. If Kerry is really the sane 
alternative, than let him prove it of his own accord. 

You already desire a result. Doesn't that worry you?

How much of our thinking is about proving a result that you wish to 
be true. How little of our thinking is involved in finding truth 
wherever it falls in a dispassionate search for truth.

This is why I think political discussions really take us away from 
good thinking and good Theosophy.
