    Anger and lack of reason from both sides seem to be the main ingredients of every political thread here.

    Do you "discuss" politics as insufferably in person as you do here?

    The powers that be set up a great system to keep the people arguing amongst themselves instead of coming together and overthrowing their corrupt rulers.

    That's why I don't argue politics.

    I have political discussions IRL. Does it get angry and heated? Sometimes.

    I seem to recall a duel, fought over political defamation, that involved two men named Hamilton and Burr.

    Oh, and the caning of Senator Sumner by a member of the House is another highlight.

    In sum, bitching on the Internet is simply a modern extension of the very human ability of people to have considerable differences of opinion. Maybe this is better than the alternatives.

    trolling people IRL is a completely different skill set but it's just as fun if done right.

    Yes. I carry political memes and data from questionable websites with me at all times and then I declare victory in the middle of the discussion.

    I don't discuss politics here. I support projects, initiatives and laws and ppl on the local level (and a few times, state).
