I Don't Often Discuss Non-Rail Politics Here...

...because I get into these exchanges.

Not every person who supports the McCain/Palin ticket is a religious nutter. (Note that one can be religious/spiritual without being crazy, and not all nuts are religious, so don't anyone start accusing me of saying all of A are B, because I did not do so.) But enough of them are to make me very nervous. However, I am not someone who assumes that anyone who disagrees with me is either a knave or a fool, as tempting as it is to fall into that mindset.

And as I've said before, the results of California's election, and the great whack (10% of the total) of electoral votes that go with it, are pretty much a forgone conclusion, and hardly wasting the electrons on influencing. I'm much more interested in the results of the propositions, particular 1A (I favor it) and 8 (I oppose it). But I'm only interested in discussing them with anyone who is genuinely undecided. True Believers need not apply, because nothing I say will persuade you, and nothing you say will persuade me. Why should either of us waste our respective time?
