As I See It: Democracy is messy

The Democratic Party seems disorganized, perhaps because democracy is messy. In a democracy everyone is entitled to an opinion, and almost everyone has one, or several. On a given topic there may be as many opinions in a room as there are people, maybe more as they debate, argue and opine. Some people will be steadfast in their opinion regardless of facts, others will blow with the wind. There will be some thoughtful ones who revise slowly as facts or powerful arguments emerge. One debate could go on forever and never resolve, like abortion or bearing arms. Churches have divided over a single line of scripture. Need I say, getting an entire nation together in one discussion would be challenging.
