Just curious if others have found this to be true regarding stances on political issues.
I have found that I can figure out my feelings on a current issue a lot faster reading a response from the opposing view. (most notably from Ral)
It usually takes about 30 seconds to solidify an opinion reading words from a conservative viewpoint. If I were to talk to Ratboy about an issue we could discuss nuances for hours.
So, its quicker to learn what you do agree with by reading or discussing what you dont?
Does this apply vice versa for conservative forum posters? Or do conservatives come upon a stance quicker from other conservative points of view also?
