Is anyone else getting tired of these circular arguments of liberals and conservatives?

Liberal and conservatives always seem to argue in a circle. Never seeming to find out the flaws of their logic always pointing flaws in other people's logic. It's like they're in a cage in a celebrity death match duking it out with each other until the final blow. Political arguments are like boxing matches. Has anyone else noticed this?

Yes absolutely!

This is a conspiracy/alternative news site and should be kept as such.

Everyone has thier own opinions and voting habits but I really prefer not to read about it here. I'm glad somebody else has said it.

I think things like that will continue to be argued forever, because it's rarely a black and white pure facts issue.

Even if a conservative says "Death penalty is good, here see some statistics that prove it's a deterrent", a liberal may turn around and say "But it's not humane", and what can you do? You can't really 'prove' that something is humane or inhumane, that's a personal judgement.

Even things that could be based more on facts and prior experience won't be. Something like what economic system you think is best, there will always be some way for people to argue against you, because economics is so complex, and relies on so many factors that it's difficult to actually prove one system is better than the other, except for totally flawed systems that have resulted in the ruin of every country that implemented them.

As a society we have to argue about these things, because they can't always be settled with hard facts, so we have to rely on other things like emotions, morals and anecdotal evidence.

Political arguments are like boxing matches. Has anyone else noticed this?

a lot of hard work and perspiration goes into preparing for a boxing match and a good grasp of methodology and skill are required to compete effectively where a political argument doesn't seem to require a firm grasp of reality, never mind a firm grasp of the language or the points being made.

political argument is like two dogs chasing their tails in tandem, the outcome of your oppositions struggle is insignificant beside the reassurance that your ultimate goal covers your own ass.
