Hey Jon. I just want to congratulate you publicly on the effort you put into your blog. Even though I have mostly been a silent observer , it has been enjoyable to read while being interesting. We have had our debates on Facebook including this topic about libertarians. I must admit you give me a intellectual workout. Debating issues are pretty easy when your dealing with people who regurgitate right/left talking points. So , keep up the good work and, even though we dissagree on most issues, I am looking forward to seeing more posts.
Wow, thanks man, I really appreciate that. The idea that I got someone thinking is kind of a very rewarding part of doing the online debate thing. I don't necessarily expect it any more. I content myself with the knowledge that I'm learning from the debate experience and generally assume that what I say doesn't necessarily penetrate the brains of my critics. But to see (rarely) that it does is really cool. So I appreciate your comment (and also your criticisms, which I am learning from).
No problem. This whole social network thing is new, and I must admit , pretty cool. I believe the exchange of ideas are a good thing. When we first started debating I must also admit, I would get pretty irritated. But I have come to realize that differing opinions makes you research and take a second look at the things that you believe to be true and the way they ought to be. Anyway, keep up the good work. I'm sure it takes a lot of time and effort.
