Why do Americans feel the need to tear eachother apart over every issue?


It seems like every important issue that can be divided into sides in this country turns into a verbal assault on one another in online forums. Have Americans really become that blinded by politics, and media that we can no longer have civil discussions that actually lead to solutions?

    You don't have to go any further than the attack adds that dominate politics in America for both candidates and issues.

    JThomp42 we are all guilty of this in some way or another, I think a big part of it has to do with the anonymity of the internet. It's easy to hurt someone's feelings and not care when they are just a profile.

    Politics is really one of the nastiest webs of conversation to get reeled in to. That does remind me of how I tried to deal with it in the election season, your sister breaking down did just that, humanised the conversation.
