Sean, Ithink think your definition is the same as mine

I assume there was/is some deeper question you were intending to ask. Cus all I'm hearing is an echo chamber of yes, affirmative.

I thought something similar and have already began preparing my counter argument since I think I know where you're going. Also I knew I had that sinking urge to shout at the top of my lungs ITS A TRAP!

Yes we have free will....with limitations.

Other peoples free will can counteract our own.

yeah, I don't disagree with you on that, but I want to make sure people are consistent. One of the counters people would give when I would say, "Republicans are filibustering everything" was, "Obama needs to lead, and leading means bringing people to read the rest
