I stepped into this thread; http://www.generalforum.com/politic...nation-rally-washington-77902.html#post906191 ...and found it full of the typical behaviour expected within in any US political discussion here. One side mounts their plinth of sanctimony and condescends the other in some kind of tar and feather ritual. It also came to a surprise it is then objected to when the behaviour itself is objected upon and I wondered if this really is the confines to which all political discussions must enthrall. Is the idea of politics no longer to confabulate and confer until one reaches a collective decisions but instead to belittle, ridicule and use suggestive language to condemn those who you disagree with to try and strengthen your own agenda within that so called collective decision? ....basically is discussion now a weakness inlight of rallied arguments? If not why do we see the ever increasing samples as above?
