I know this is no big shocker, but the political debate in this forum is getting out of hand, and I am partly to blame for it. I want to appoligise to everyone for all the big stinks I've caused. From now on, let's try to keep this Sniper related.
WHAT??????? >>>>>>>> I missed the political debate??
Just kidding, kinda sad I missed the action though. I do agree with you though Westy, sometimes Politics can get the best of us, so we should try to keep it civil. I myself love to debate politics, but if I'm getting out of hand ever, just politely remind me of the topic at hand.
Is there not something wrong with us if we cannot take an objective view of an issue that we might have no feelings toward whatsoever?
I agree more with Westpointranger when he says we merely have to keep our emotions in check, as opposed to ignoring these sensitive issues altogether... how else will we expand our minds and incorporate new ideas, as well as rid ourselves of bad ones, if we do not explore that which we do not know/do not agree with?
There are those people who would turn a conversation, a dialectic, into a fight... but those people simply need to be shown the error of their ways, or disregarded. It should be the responsibility of all else involved to simply sidestep such anger and frustration which accumulates with thickheadedness.
I like the discussions the people on this site have, because as I've said before, everyone proves themselves fairly intelligent and patient to hear opposing views.
There are plenty of other forums out there for people who want to take political, religious, or any other off topic views to chat up at. This is a sniper/shooting web site and should stay that way.
My views are just that.....mine....so just let it be.......same goes for religion......over 3000 different beliefs in the world and everyone thinks thiers is the only right one. If you really want to chat about that stuff you can private message someone but posting it here will just hurt feeling and start un-needed fights on a otherwise peaceful forum.
