Being here for awhile I've noticed this trend when the liberal ideology begins to relinquish control while also generally losing political debates , they will after all return once again for they can't help themselves . Yet as typically happens , the masses on the left will swallow their own media hype and come up with new and improved strategies of silencing those the right . Some part of me always new the Trump opposition would dwindle away to a big ,silencing zip.
As in the election , are they not just sore losers ?
You know, sometimes people don’t want to talk to you because it’s actually not a productive or enjoyable experience. Maybe don’t be so quick to assume it’s because you’re “winning” a debate.
There are people here with opposing views that I enjoy conversing with regardless of the topic because you can tell they actually listen to what you’re saying and express their opinions in a way that is thoughtful and promotes a real discussion. For example, I’d say I disagree with wilderness on more things than not but I still enjoy talking with him because he acts like a real person capable of having a mature conversation. There are others, he’s just the first that came to mind.
On the other hand, there are people such as yourself who don’t really seem interested in having valuable discussions with people that they disagree with. You throw insults, you beat around the bush, you clearly don’t care to learn anything about why people don’t agree with you, you just keep asserting your perceived superiority... so why do you think anyone would want to keep having those kinds of interactions? It’s a waste of time.
I mean, if you wanna pretend that you’re on a virtual battlefield and people are running away from you because you’re so tough and scary and have slayed all of their friends then go for it, but that’s not really the reason why.
I have said this before , ignore my posts if you don't like them , but don't try to form my input , my input is as valid as yours or anyone else's here . The very fact that I agitate some to the point of frustration simply means they cannot debate my point's to their own dissatisfaction.
- I will be no one's secretary
- I will "prove it " no more than anyone on the left does
- It does no good to" prove" media sights today , who do we believe ?
- Don't ask me to silence myself
- I believe those who would silence another aren't worthy of listening to
- Anyone uncomfortable in political debate should stay home
Isn’t that what spurred this post on? People saying they were going to ignore you? I’m just saying that doesn’t mean they simply cannot keep up with your impressive debate skills, but that it may just be because debating with you is a colossal waste of time. Frustration does not always come from the inability to address your excellent points. But again, if that’s what makes you feel good...
You are as free as anyone to post here and I don’t think anyone has tried to silence you. But if you’re gonna prance around claiming victory over liberals because they can’t stand talking to you anymore then I’m gonna tell you why.
Thank you for that very accurate and well stated explanation.
I could care less that the bias of the left ignored me , But what they cannot ,will never do is silence me !
GOP is called upon Sessions for a Hillary investigation. We now know that the FBI investigation was completely bias. They say the Mueller investigation is the same old same old bias. Maybe I am wrong about Mueller. After all he did deliver uranium to the Russians on a tarmac.
Oh, the suspense and mystery of it all!
Why thank you, Aime - I take that as a compliment!
(But if you don't want to be wrong so much, don't disagree with me. )

In debates, what do you think constitutes a personal attack?With debates spanning the full spectrum from civilized and polite discussions to blatant screaming and name calling, I've noticed that a lot of people are quick to claim that they're being attacked, when the other party has done nothing of...

Does anyone find it strange how all the liberals support Trayvon/ conservatives for Zimmerman?I see both sides claiming bias in the media on the other side, or some kind of systematic, race based flaw. However, how come we're split along political lines? Doesn't this show that America...

I just got into a debate with a hub author who published a maligning article about the town I came from. He denied some of my comments as they were antithetical to his ideology of the area and actually refuted some of the thoughts of it.Should this be allowed? It's basically the same as suppressing...

Frequently, I wonder to myself why I bother engaging in political discussions on the internet. What it comes down to is 1) I've always enjoyed a good debate, and it's hard to engage in these discussions in real life with friends or family, as it can result in hard feelings. It's easier...

If anyone at all "won" the Republican debate on 2/13/2016 (or not) name the top three in order.My own impression: Trump came across as having learned nothing, or even as not wanting to win the Republican nomination. Kasich came across as the winner, followed in a Rubio and Carson...

I could get rich just collecting the strong judgements we make as a first response to a statement we disagree with. We are writers, and writers impact the world powerfully. Suppose we try to listen before we judge. Face it, in a religion forum we are going to disagree. But...
