Too often if 'you' want to discuss politics, what 'you're' really saying is that you want to jam 'your' slanted political opinion down someone else's throat. There is no discussion.

There is only whether or not 'your' side is victorious in the political scrum, and the if 'you' lose, how that can be spun to look the least damaging while at the same time finding some basis to blame the other side for being amoral.
