Trouble is, and I'm guilty of this too, is that people are so intent on being right that they will spend a lot of effort searching for and providing "backup" for their opinion, while spending very little time actually studying the backup provided by others with a differing opinion.

Most of the time it just seemed like a lot of people saying... "me, me, me"...
"no! me, me, me!" ... "NO! ME, ME, ME" ... "NO!!!! MEEEE, MEEEE, MEEEE!!!!!"


I actually enjoy the political debates with my family much better than the ones here. There's quite the background of people in my family (many teachers, construction people, financial sector, retail management, etc.) so you get a whole bunch of different views, but all with the same sort of philosophy towards life...

My sister and brother in law are high school arts teachers, that support the conservative party, but had homosexual friends and care about the environment...
