    What? Acting like a mature, and responsible, adult?

    Here on the interwebs? That is just wrong.

    Next we'll have cats and dogs getting married! Or who knows, we might have Republicans and Democrats being friends! :omg:

    :)

    Through the campaign, I found it interesting how Trump insulted people from his own party more so than he did with the Democrats.

    I don't but one party is so far behind the other party on key issues such as religion, science and others that it's the equivalent of talking to someone from an Islamist party. The divide in intellect is real and scary.

    I'm an Independent, and no I don't enjoy it, and I don't do it. I'm here to talk. I'm not interested in a food fight.

    I am willing to accept that each party has policies that are better than the other's, but both major parties are dysfunctional messes ruled by isolated, and ignorant, extremists who are pursuing policies that will ruin a majority of the American population. Debating on which party, or faction, is worse is like debating on whether arsenic, polonium, or lead is worse for your health. The end is still a gruesome death, or if you are "lucky" being physically crippled, or insane, for life. And so, choosing your preferred method of suffering is all we are arguing over.

    I rather hope both will go the way of the Whigs. It would be scary, but at least we would have a chance for some political parties that actually represent the views of, and work for the welfare of, most Americans rather than a small, usually very wealthy, group.

    Sorry for the late response, I took a week off from debate.

    The doc can give me a medication that slows the heart which reduces the shaking but also reduces energy so I opted not to take it.

    Shyness sucks and is the reason that I could never play in public. Today my shyness is all but gone but sadly my ability to play is all but gone too. I hope your student can overcome their shyness as playing in front of an audience looks like a blast!

    I have activist acquaintances who are liberals. And I have activist acquaintances who are conservative. And I've learned from both sides. I don't always agree with their solutions but I tend to usually agree with both sides that the problems they are concerned with actually exists and needs attention. Arguing and becoming verbally combative doesn't accomplish anything. It gets in the way of any progress at all.

    I'm a libertarian, so I did not vote in the poll.

    Lol, secret poll results is a pretty sure way to guarantee people will intentionally mess up the poll.

    You could hardly be more off base if you tried. If it's done right, it exposes evil for what it is, and that is no trivial accomplishment. That's what Jesus did when He called out the pharisees, and what Reagan did when he called the Soviet Union an evil empire.
