How many of us have just given up talking to or arguing with conservatives. Not the fine folks in this community but outside of this community? I Have just unfriended a number of people who think that the answer to an argument is "I don't care what you say I know I am right" and steadfastly refuse to provide links or articles or quotes or sources.
How many people in your life like to argue with you just to get you riled up? Just for the Lulz? I know in my case that has happened all my life. My brothers, my father, my "friends" will pick fights with me about politics and then when they recognize they are losing get really nasty and personal. If another person calls me a traitor just because he disagrees with me I will leave the country. This level of discourse is what passes for current events discussion in our culture today. And of course nothing is ever fact based. And we hear it on radio and see it on TV and lies go unchallenged and the whole process falls apart.
