Has anyone ever convinced you to change your opinion on a political issue via debate?
I'm as much a flaming liberal as a man gets, but a well presented, logical, and factual argument must be respected.
Only someone with the maturity of an infant thinks someone with different values than they have is automatically always wrong.
society convinced me to change my opinion on gay marriage.
If you said no, you truly are closed minded. And no, I'm not a liberal democrat or a radical right-winger I'm a reasonable conservative. But if you can't be open to see other sides and possibly shift your stance a little, then you are part of the problem not the solution. Granted, some no votes may have never come in contact with someone intelligent enough to articulate a solid debate, but keep an eye out for one.
