We like to discuss everything. Everything includes current events, law, politics, economics, sports, religion and philosophy. There are plenty of websites and blogs all over the internet where these issues are discussed; however, we are attempting to create one where opposing arguments are displayed together and the point of view is not already predetermined. On this blog we will make an attempt to allow the reader to form his/her own opinion. Comments and discussion are encouraged as we believe that friendly debate is the best way to learn. The goal of such conversations, therefore, should be to educate oneself rather than to prove others wrong. So enjoy the posts and let's discuss, not argue.

Boycott Target!

Hey everyone. I'm a fan of the movement to Boycott Target for a number of reasons. I think Citizens United was bad decision. I think corporations are indeed citizens and should have a right to free speech, but they do not (and should not) have a right to vote, and (whether they are trying to get a Republican, Democrat, or Independent candidate elected,) they should not have a right to free speech when it comes to elections. The U.S. has a legitimate interest in curbing their free speech when it comes to elections.

We live in a capitalist society, and corporations only speak in the language of $$$. Therefore, the only way for every-man Americans like you and me to communicate our displeasure with Corporations (and indirectly our displeasure with the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United) is through movements such as this boycott.

I encourage everyone to view the videos after the jump below and Boycott Target!
