Should I ignore zealot Dems and Repubs?

On some of the threads here on ATS, I have seen zealot Repubs and Dems. What I mean by that is, that they will back their party no matter what. Now with the Dems being in power I have seen many more zealot Dems than Repubs. Now, the Repubs have begun to see the foolishness of backing their party when it is obvious both parties have become the same. I believe the Dems are denying this fact because they are now in power, and cannot believe that their party has become as corrupt as the Repubs.

My question is, Should I set them to ignore? Neither party's zealots can be reasoned with. They are beginning to sound just like the politicians they like to quote.

Your thoughts please.

Burying your head in the sand by pushing the ignore button may alleviate some of your stress regarding the zealots/fanatics but it won't make them go away. I don't consider them as enemies, per se, but the golden rule still applies. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Yes, stop feeding the machine.
second line, a resounding YES!

I know burying my head is partially correct but blatant lies and obfuscations drive me nuts. What I wish I could do is remove them from my threads. But that would be wrong, almost like government censorship.


Hazelnut your opinion I appreciate, because you can see the problems with both parties. Thanks for commenting.

Nope. Zealot democrats are evil, rabid, leperous creatures that must be feared and reviled.

While calm, serene, angelic right-wing saviours are beautiful creatures of goodness and light.

Seriously? Anyone that can't argue facts and have to hop on the rhetoric train, shouldn't be taken seriously.

'Cept for me. Because I'm right.

Just had to repost that.

Identify your ideals. Support the people who support your ideals.

If I woke up in "my grandfathers party" and noticed it was run by avowed socialists and supported by every avowed Marxist as the closest party to their system of belief, that would be a huige eye opener - oh wait a second, it was...

The Repubs use to stand for less government.

The Dems use to stand for-I do not know. Big Government?

But choosing a party for the only reason that it is your party is hypocritical. Both parties are leading us to ruin. What I am asking is, should I just forget trying to talk to them. It seems they do not want to listen to reason or debate.

The sad, ironic part is? Some would take what I posted seriously.

I see it as "reaching", they are struggling to find something that will stick to either party. And while the rest of us are too busy slinging mud at each other, Nero is warming up his fiddle and playing while Rome burns.

I have a policy:

No matter what they say, how they attempt to derail, or what amount of mud they sling my way, I will not hit that ignore button. People like me, who are strict Constitutionalists, don't need to ignore the propaganda of these two parties, as the Constitution makes no mention of them, and regardless of how old the Constitution gets it does not become outdated like political parties do.

That inherently makes partisan posturing and zealotry wrong on all counts. So far we have had a track record of being right. I offer Ron Paul, Peter Schiff, Adam Kokesh, and a few others who make up the Liberty movement as the foundation to my claims.

None the less, Star and Flag as I truly understand the frustration and wouldn't hold it against you if you did hit that ignore button every time.

I call myself a "Radical Centrist."


More specifically, I eschew all ideology and party lines (insofar as is possible) and try to look at things through the lens of HISTORY and PSYCHOLOGY. And I try to look at the world as it actually is, rather than how I'd like it to be. Both of these things give me a rather grim, pessimistic outlook on politics.

During the Bush years I was often accused of being a "liberal." These days I find myself being called "conservative." But my views haven't really changed at all, insofar as I can tell.
