Great post 909! Totally agree.

People take this shit way too personally.  I love politics and love arguing about it but I never take it personally. 

I look at politics like a look at sports: you win some, you lose some.  Big whoop.  In the overall scheme of things, it's really not that important (or certainly not as important as some people try to make it).  In many ways, that's because of the greatness of America.  Some people see things differently and that's ok. (or at least it should be).  People are allowed to think differently.  This isn't Nazi Germany or Stalin's Russia.  Respect that.  Accept the fact that some people see things differently than you and then move on. 

Oh, and learn to not call people names.  Don't call them stupid or dumb.  You can say their thinking or reasoning is stupid or dumb or silly, but don't say they are stupid or dumb.  That makes it personal and usually pisses people off.  And there is a difference.
