So if there is something wrong, it is your logical reasoning skills.
what a lame recovery. why do people who argue online spew utter nonsense when they know they have been beaten in an argument? is it a defense mechanism? or the fact that they know they have nothing to lose so they will say it anyway? sounds like a liberal.
you say "dissent" is key to a democracy.
dissent is what is causing problems in Darfur right now, one of the main issues your precious liberals care so much about.
dissent is what caused the Rwanda massacre.
dissent is what caused the French Revolution.
dissent from spheres of influence is what gutted China from the inside out.
dissent ruins nations. the original ideal of democracy in Athens is that citizens meet and peacefully discuss what is wrong in their society and how to solve it in committee. not "dissent" and strangle each other.
next time you want to engage in a political debate, you may want to look up in a dictionary what certain words mean, much less actually learn about precedent.
