WLOX Editorial: Be thankful we can have open political debate

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Whether or not you like the current President. Or whether or not you like the President- elect, our form of government, democratically electing our leaders shines as a beacon across the world. A beacon that guides and gives hope to others in the world who aspire to be like us.

When it comes to elections, and policy, the debate in America has been vigorous, to say the least. 

On this Thanksgiving we should be thankful we can have that open debate; thankful that people can speak their beliefs and convictions; thankful we have the right to choose our leaders by voting and thankful we live in a country that when all the voting is over, there is a smooth and peaceful transition of power from one leader to the next, for this election year and those to come.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
