When it can be done without linking it to rage over the decisions your fellow countrymen.
Ryder Spearmann

I guess that is where we differ. I think going outside and peacefully demonstrating is one way of showing reverence and appreciation for civilization since one of civilization’s hallmarks is peacefully demonstrating. I think democracy is more than voting at such-and-such intervals. To me, democracy is about having a voice which can take the form of a vote, but also a march, donation to a campaign, or blog post.

I guess I’m a conservative that way — I believe in conserving the traditions of American democracy.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
