US political arguments are much more angry and childlike compared to UK folk

There, I said it.
Is it that we are simply more civilised or is there some other reason?
Every day y'all in the US are angry and outraged with each other to the point I imagine you frothing at the mouth while rocking in a chair with crazed eyes. If you are left you hate everything right and the anger is surprising to me as a Brit.

We have a massive polarising issue going on at the moment with Brexit possibly the biggest issue to affect our country in generations, and yes there is some anger on both sides, but overall there is also decent banter and a few laughs between the opposing sides.
None of the UK political threads even get posted in the mudpit, and there are very few posts removed by mods.

So what is it then? How come Brits can argue and debate with friendly banter thrown into the mix but US political discussion is mostly posted in the pit with venom and anger a plenty?
Do y'all just like being angry?

Oh boy. A virtual recreation of the War of 1812. Should be interesting.

Since its a conspiracy forum, my hot take is US partisanship weakens us as a nation, which is beneficial to our enemies that are threatened by a cohesive and allied US power (like Russia for example). I think that a large part of online troll-farming's purpose is not just to affect direct political change, but to constantly 'stoke the fires' of rage between political ideologies so that US citizens spend their outrage and energy on each other rather than affecting change from regimes around the world we believe are doing wrong.

Because Americans forget the meaning of the word "compromise" years ago.

And I also find it funny how many non Americans participate in American political threads.
It's almost like its important to the rest of the world. Hmm

Manifest destiny brother.

The only thing standing inbetween the rest of the world losing every ounce (not milliliters) of civility is our .223 calibers of super fast freedom delivery.

Your welcome.

Exactly, because you cant say much in detraction by law.

Americans have always worn hearts on our sleeves. Thats what got us through everything until now, its what the world liked about us and relied upon.

Its a frickin circus today, and you can actually chart the demise here on ATS and anywhere realy beginning in 2016.

We used to have decorum, and as a kid I watched Parliament sessions on CSPAN with Thatcher wrangling the room as they shouted at each other and used insults.

Civility isn't what the US spreads. You'd be closer with body bags.

Dude, you're eating up all that fake news.

Don't try and sit here and tell me that Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and a host of other freedom loving nations aren't better off now than when we gave them civility

US politics is much more interesting. Even the UK’s greatest political moments pale in comparison to the US’s most benign.

I'll be the first one to come up there and show you some freedom.

It might help that our politicians don't put on wigs and makeup before they do their job....

Instead ours just don't show up most of the time.

Well , dang
Maybe because the US fought a war to not be a part of the UK ?
A few farmers kicked the world's greatest army of the time's rear. And made em like it..
To not have to follow royal rule.
Why should we have to be like them now ?
