I know a few people who really like to get into political debates. I also have the notion from others that knowing about politics puts you on some scale of intelligence above others.

You may be intelligent at politics, but you could also be complete rubbish at everything else

I equate politics to master con artists, see who can spout the most asinine crap and get the masses to swallow it up. Though will give politicians props on being able to do that effectively...though skill doesn't always equal intelligence.

More on point to the question, politics in general discussion can happen. Though will it yield anything except vitriol?...I leave it up to this thought that's common.

Politics is like a toilet bowl, everyone is scrambling over each other to drop their opinions...and we all have them, just 9/10 times they all stink as much as each others. It's a cesspit

I don't like those kinds of threads since "winning" usually just means you're better at arguing(or more stubborn), not necessarily because the points were right

No. People like to think they´re smarter because they can discuss it but most people get facts wrong or debate on false politics.

Seriously, 99% of what I read online is just falsehoods around policies and a lot of debate full of people who haven´t even read the bill they´re arguing about. It´s definitely not very intelligent.

Most discussion on politics is like listening to tape recorders argue.
