From our standpoint over on the left, this Republican presidential primary has been a remarkable spectacle to behold. We've watched in wonder as one ridiculous candidate after another has rocketed to the top of the polls, all while the guy everyone assumes will be the eventual nominee struggles to convince voters he's a real human. The race has been a parade of charlatans and fools, with the lead at various times being held by an unhinged religious nut (Bachmann), a governor who made George W. Bush look like Stephen Hawking (Perry), a pizza executive whose ignorance was truly head-spinning (Cain), the nation's most unpopular major politician (Gingrich), and America's most vulgar citizen (Trump). None of these people were remotely imaginable as president, and all were a hoot to watch as they bumbled along toward their inevitable falls.
Consider, then address specific arguments and ideas put forth by others, intelligently, rather than taking the easy route and attacking them personally. A "personal attack" is defined as directly or indirectly insulting another user (or group of users), oftentimes by name-calling, labeling, making sweeping generalizations or putting words into their mouth.Examples • "You are a racist..." • "Your ideas are idiotic..." • "[insert political affiliation]s are stupid."Warning that "all comments with name calling will be deleted. Comments with party names altered to insults (teabaggers, libtards, repukes) will be deleted."Name calling as :Obozo, moron, Obumbo ect. will also be deleted. Use The Governor, Rick Perry, Perry, The President, Barrack Obama, Obama.
The topic is not whether the seed is good or bad or even my opinion or "logic".
