Okay, I'm through having political discussions on forums...any forums including these. Why bother? You're not going to change someone who's made up their mind. All it is is a sh$% storm being thrown back and forth. No matter how articulate or how intelligent your comments may seem you have no power to changes someone else who has their mind set on a certain notion. You just can't argue with stupid and before you all jump all down my throat for that one, that also includes me. Honestly I just don't have the amount of hate in my heart required to constantly wage into such a storm.

This is mainly aimed at my fellow Americans but I imagine it should also hold true for any democracy. So I'll try really hard to put a positive spin on the whole team red cheerleaders vs team blue cheerleaders vs third party cheerleaders. Exercise your right to vote people. Even if you (God forbid) choose to vote for Trump who I cannot stand and personally despise that is still your right people. You all have the right to vote for who ever you want and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I'd rather see you vote for someone I hate than not vote at all. The same goes for Hillary and the third party candidates. Just forget all the crap for a moment and at least come together on this one idea, this one principle that we as a nation have the right and privilege to vote for whoever we want......just like we all have the right to say what we want. As much as I hate reading all the bs talking points and conservative nonsense they still have a right to spout such nonsense and I would gladly give my life to protect that right. Make sure in this highly polarized election that you would do the same for others and cherish those freedoms that we all hold so dear. That is at least one thing that should always bridge that gap and bring us together in unity. Good luck to you all.

It is true though, there is no swaying someone from the left or the right and etc.
Bit like it's pretty rare to make someone change religion, it's the same with peoples opinions. Their minds are often made up and set in stone and even evidence will not change what has been drilled into them from how they've been raised or brainwashed from the media and "education" and their peers.
So many things make people just stuck in their ways. Their parents, their faith, their white guilt, political correctness, fear of being labled racist, feminism, education, being racist, being stupid, the media, lack of research, assumptions, i guess even a word i hate "bigotry", etc

Almost none of us actually intend on changing anyone's mind and, instead, it's more about dicking around and enjoying getting worked up?

As buddy said, it is torture yet sometimes amusing to hear the ridiculous thoughts that go through peoples' heads.

I agree. You can't articulate with a medium such as an online forum for politics.

Pretty much everyone states their opinion while having a dick measuring contest. It's best to have a two-way communication where each party can provide arguments in a civilized matter.
