Why:     There is a concern that the fabric of our Democracy is being shredded by dishonest, hostile rhetoric. Panelists will consider               this concern and suggest possible paths forward.

•   Do our panelists believe that to be the case?
•   If so, why? If not, why not?
•   How can we improve the tone and text of our rhetoric in order to preserve our
Democracy?
