I am tired of being told, no, you aren't allowed to say that/vote that/think that/believe that and I will toss insults at you until you know I am in the right. From who is the President now (and it was the same just a mere three years ago in the opposite direction), to abortion, to education topics, to civil rights. Why is it I am right and you are wrong? And why does this count as an argument?
What happened to debating? Discussing? Incorporating your ideas with my ideas and vice versa to find a common ground, or even just a civil - okay I listened to where you are coming from, don't agree, but thanks for the food for thought?
It is our refusal to do this that is the root cause of our government spiraling out of control. I expect at any time for our HoR/Sen to start looking like WWF wrestling matches.
You are wrong, whether you agree with me or not, depending on who you are and if I like you!
THIS is an indication of the problem. How can nastiness not ensue if some people think their OPINION is the only correct, moral,real, obvious answer to ALL the world's problems? Seriously...................
Thinly veiled sarcasm.

I got called a "usual suspect" and "bitchy" today because I spoke of progressives. I got a vote down for my opinion about Native Americans and passports. It isn't the politics. It is the people. They want to only discuss issues from their point of view. That is fine. Start a group. Go to your group and have a day. Stop the name calling and veiled rudeness just because everyone doesn't see the world from a liberal point of view.

Because not since the civil war are we so close to losing our freedoms and our way of life that we have enjoyed and has made us the greatest nation in the world.
We have done all of this in just a short 234 years, and the guy in the White House wants to take that all away from us.
I am not going to let him do it without a fight, even if it kills me. There are other ladies on her that feel the same way.
