How about more real soap box?

There's a lot of copy and paste here, for example just below the post "Everyone of voting age should read these two books by Barrack O'Bama" is copied and pasted from the blogoshere.

There are also YouTube links put up with virtually zero personal opinion or commentary from the poster.

When you stand on a soap box you speak for yourself don't you?

Of course there's no rules here, but I want to argue that for me real debate is between people speaking their minds, not the minds of others, available in the millions through Google.

My suggestions are: first of all, if you put the words of others in a post put it in quotes and use it to back up something you are saying, and second, if put up a YouTube link, explain "why". What is your point?

Of course many voters and people on both sides can't think for themselves. I don't blame them, life isn't easy and things in government and society are more complicated than ever. Or they get tired, that's what happens to me, I get tired sometimes.
