This is a post I have pending for Daily Kos, to be posted 3-14-2010, when my next screen (unbanned) screen name becomes ready. Unfortunately, I was banned today within three minutes of posting this about Al Gore (link to DailyKos thread). Draft of upcoming DailyKos post follows:
========================================================
It seems that it's very hard to post middle of the road positions here without being banned. I give two examples; JBG and his last thread (link) and JBGATKINKOS and his last thread (link). Another example is one about the need to develop and burn clean natural gas in the Northeast, as opposed to using polluting, greenhouse gas creating oil and coal (link).

I know that the Internet is an "echo chamber". People want to read views that support theirs. I personally have found the interchange of ideas to be stimulating. I like to read some views I agree with and some I disagree with. Dissent doesn't scare me.

Our country was not made great by fearful people. Thomas Jefferson, the practical founder of the Democratic Party, would not have been busy shouting down or banning opponents. That was for the Federalists, today's Republicans, with the Alien and Sedition Acts.

Let's hear it for free speech!!!
