Not just here, but anywhere. All this just reads like a shouting match. If that is cathartic, then good on you. Just wondering if any of it ever really mattered. I myself have never seen anyone concede much of a point other than admitting their facts may be proven wrong, and even then most of these types just hedge.

To that point, what is the logical fallacy (or fallacies) that you see the most? Ad hominem seems to be the flavor of the day.

Politics are just that... Nobody is changing my perspective on life.

I've changed my mind on a few things. Like prostitution. I thought it was bad, now I don't care. I don't know why it's illegal. Why put a man in jail because he wants a piece of ass?

I enjoy reading the back-and-forth. Some folks are waaaayyyyyy out there in lala land. Others bring forth good information and perspective. Some people just hate life. Some people are smarter than all the country leaders combined, just ask them and they'll tell you.

I had dinner Tuesday night with two lobbyist and two delegates. This was election night (primary) here in Virginia. It only took about 15 minutes of listening to understand that what's said to the media is strategic and if you don't think there's a master to plan you're a fool. These people are smart and they're all working together. What me or you or Scott or Ray or Paul think and feel means about as much as a leaf falling off a tree. But I like hearing the perspectives and yes, sometimes I change my mind.

Just wait until the conversation starts about if DJT has a toupee or not. That will be great. Honestly nobody has ever changed my mind here, in fact I think I like DJT even more now. I may go as far and say he's my hero.

My thing is this, I voted for a better economy and more jobs and not to get shafted as we have for years from the limp-dick status quo. DJT is delivering that on a silver platter and the naysayers are having a melt down crying to the sky episode. This is good for America and all Americans. The simple fact one argues against working policy simply because of the policy architect blows the mind. Numbers don't lie.

And I guarantee without a doubt someone will say it's not True or Obama did it.
