For libs only: when a conservative doesn't reply to you here on SH, do you take that to mean you've won the argument?

    Wow, some of the comments-I can see why they'd get blocked, or not responded to-by anybody.

    no conservatives just always want to be right with everything and want to defend every argument. and when a liberal makes a point no one wants to rave them or agree. most of the conservatives on Sodahead that it.

    Sometimes. Sometimes I assume they just got bored. Meh. Totally fine.

    Other times they were never really intending on having a debate, and just wanted to throw derogatory, generalizing one liners fit for a 2nd grade playground to inflate their ego. Confirmation bias feels good, and it is much easier to indulge in as opposed to critical thought and healthy debate, but it is counterproductive if you actually want to learn something.

    The utter lack of critical thought is why too many consider fantastical connections of hearsay and assumptions, evidence. It is en epidemic in this country.

    I'm more interested in providing information than "winning".

    If butthurt conservatives want to run away from reality, that's fine with me.

    I can't fix stupid.

    Sometimes people will not continue to argue, for the simple reason that there is no use in having a spirited conversation with a stone wall and just drop it.

    It just means we're tired of of trying to discuss reality using logic and reason with illogical, knee jerk fools who refuse to deal with the truth & facts---except by yelling, insulting, and resorting to screaming 'racist'. HEY LIBS, SEE THE LATEST POLL?? 6 OUT OF 10 DOCTORS PLANNING ON RETIRING EARLY-----does that tell you ANYTHING about your vaunted leader and his healthcare plan??? Not to mention the other big government control ideas-----like their latest budget (yeah, finally produce one) which raises taxes by a trillion and does nothing to address the problems facing the country.

    I am not a conservative and I am not a liberal. I'm somewhere in between. I rarely say anything that requires an answer. My beliefs are my own, and I don't care what anyone else believes, so I see no point in arguing.

    I haven't been answering comments to my original opinions lately. I've been shying away from argument and debate lately. Things are being said repetitiously so I haven't bothered to spend as much time responding back. Doesn't mean anyone won or lost.

    It's an ancient rule of debate, endorsed by Sophocles. He who posts last wins the debate. You also win the debate if they kill you.

    I am sure that many of them do. If I chose to not reply, its usually because it's not worth my time, as their comments are useless dribble most of the time. If they choose to fell insulted, or that they won the argument, then so be it. Most of the time, their comments are not worth commenting on. One does not need to get into their ideological gutter with them.

    What I see consistently here is liberals who block conservatives, because they are unable to answer the questions raised by conservatives.

    I am libertarian, what I do when I have dealt with the discussion long enough and it has hit a wall whether because we are never going to agree or it degrades to being personally insulted I tell then that I am done and to have a great day.

    When this happens, the response 80% of the time is, " that they won". It does not seem to matter whether it is a liberal or a conservative with whom I am having the discussion with.

    What I have found interesting that some of the nastiest folks are Christians.

    I'm a Christian libertarian here to say that Christ never condoned being nasty. Please don't blame Him for the behavior of immature people who might use his name.
    As for the people who run out of ideas and devolve into name calling, .... I agree they claim to have won the debate. However any of us who read the dialogue know better. so don't let it bother you. I try not to let such sophomoric silliness bother me either.

    Never did I say or imply that it bothered me. I understand that it was not the teaching of Christ to be nasty and offensive. That is why being trashed by Christians is so Ironic.

    I am a conservative, but when I see a conversation turning into insults instead of discussion, I leave. If they think they have the last word, that's OK. Haters are going to hate.

    They shouldn't make that mistake. I rarely go back once I've said my piece. I get tons of SH mail, Group questions out the wazoo. I try to give attention everywhere but mostly it's just not possible. I also have a husband, children and home to run, with all that entails. I've said it before, I'm not ignoring you, I don't have time for you.
