Should Politics & Current Events be renamed?

It seems like it should be called Politics & Current Events for Conservatives Only.

Anyone who doesn't agree with the regulars their is belittled, voted down, etc.

  • Provide a good argument, and some good links and you won't be voted down or belittled.
    If you go back and really look, you'll see there are quite a few Liberals that are voted up and have great discussions and points and arguments that frequently some Cons agree with.
    Debate and Argue well, and you shouldn't have a problem.
    That and some thick skin and huge panties.

  • Hmmmm, that's funny... every time I go in there it is the Conservative's answers that start getting the down votes first. I often thought that the Liberals were a bit down vote happy. Guess it is just our own perspectives that allow us to see what we want to see.

    Nope. Anyone who brings forth internet rumors and unfounded BS and can't back it up is treated in the manner they ask to be. There are plenty of people who show up there, put down facts, and even if they don't agree, they don't get voted down. The problem is for too many people, they assume they are being treated "badly" because of their view point. They are totally oblivious to the fact that they are being treated "badly" because they are presenting arguments a 5 year old could tear apart with a plastic spoon. It's not rocket science, and it takes all of 3 seconds to type your "fact" into google along with the word "debunked" and see how many hits it gets. If you can't be bothered to do that before reposting that spam fb status you just got from Aunt Edna, why should anyone else be bothered to take you seriously?
