Why America’s politicians need to change how they debate the issues

I’m not much for political discussions. I get my politics from books. So while I’m more than a little ticked off over the political shenanigans surrounding the debates, I don’t think we really need any of them.

First of all, there’s no more important job than being president. It involves issues that are far more intricate and far more important than most of us could possibly understand. How will our Supreme Court justices rule on hot-button social issues? What are our energy supplies? Can we defend ourselves against a foreign power? How can we develop cutting-edge technology?

Ask almost any serious thinker what his top priorities are for the president and for America and almost every person will name the same three issues: terrorism, international trade and national security. More than issues. They are the responsibility of the president to ensure that America does not fall into its dark days of 1933, when the Red menace was about to bring the system to a grinding halt. For some reason, debating these important issues has been turned into a hoot. And debating these issues has been turned into a ticket to ridicule.

And that’s not OK.
