Deliberation and debate is the way you stir the soul of our democracy.

Jesse Jackson

Republicans and Democrats have used accounting gimmicks and competing government analyses to deceive the public into believing that 2 + 2 = 6. If our leaders cannot agree on the numbers, if 'facts' are fictional, how can they possibly have a substantive debate on solutions?

J. C. Watts


Those who cannot understand how to put their thoughts on ice should not enter into the heat of debate.

Friedrich Nietzsche

If people who cherish freedom, who know the importance of mutual respect and are aware of the imperative necessity to establish a constructive and critical debate, if these people are not ready to speak out, to be more committed and visible, then we can expect sad, painful tomorrows. The choice is ours.

Tariq Ramadan
