    I don’t see that here.
    "Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."

    I'm not saying they shouldn't, I'm saying they don't. I'd be fine with them doing it.
    I don't insult, I diagnose.

    Right, it's not done, but it might be a good idea.

    If so, why bother?

    Town halls arent tailored for any individual to like them, if you dont think theres a purpose to them, no problem, there is no requirement you participate
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Again you dont have to participate in townhalls or the forum if you are that unhappy.

    I was on this website for a long time but did not participate again until recently. The personal insults and attacks on responses was not this bad in the past. If you desire more people to join your forum, a delete function for responses of personal insults and attacks on members by moderators to reduce this type of behavior. The focus of the debate is on the contents shared and it should not be on the messenger.

    Contemporary politics is a bit like comparing fiction to non-fiction. On the one hand youíve got those trying to discuss politics and on the other, those engaged in fantasies. Weíve recently had the great outpourings on whether the Russians or Facebook were responsible for the election of a National Socialist in America. It doesnít get any more weird than that. So what youíve seeing at the moment is the transition from fantasy to fact and itís not going down well and the same opposite when Obama was elected. Eventually and hopefully it will all settle down.
