Guidelines for Constructive Political Conversations

I am often approached by individuals interested in having a political “conversation.”  I put quotes around that word because in most instances, a conversation (which I would define as a respectful exchange of ideas) is often not what they intend.  To save me time and explanation, I have decided to outline what I consider the requirements for a meaningful conversation around politics.  In other words, if you want to have a political conversation with me, there are some things we both should understand and agree to.  

I also propose some simple guidelines to avoid getting into a contentious, and ultimately pointless, conversation.
