Not to mention that when we disagreed, we kept it civil and respectful and actually took the time to listen to each others point and while not necessarily changing our minds, we understood where the other person was coming from. The problem with some folks like streetdoc was the emotional tie to a political point of view and attacking the person not debating the issue.
Exactly. I'll never ridicule a person for their views unless they're just being assholes or obviously obtuse on purpose.
Snowolf will never convince me to become a market socialist (pardon if I get the term wrong) and I'll never convince him to be a fiscal conservative as I am.
We both agree there is a problem. We just disagree on the solution. The more I dabble in politics and economics, I've realized the more you learn the more you understand that we really don't know shit.
For each success our country has had, both parties take credit. For each failure we have had, both parties blame the other. The crazy shit is, there is enough evidence to do so as well.
So nothing will change. Parties will ebb and flow, and we will progress at the same time growing more discontent. I don't say this to start a political discussion. I say this to reflect my view of, why get mad over a different opinion on a snowboarding forum?
Were here to snowboard that's all!
