I started a thread a while ago, to compare the merits of Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. I wanted to know, in a head to head, who would get someone's
vote. A hypothetical duel, if you will.
What I got was a tirade of nonsense, generally simplistic responses like "Neither, i'd vote RP" or "they r both crooks". Hardly appropriate - or
The validity of the thread itself was called into question - by not including Ron Paul as an option, I was obviously pulling a fast one and unfairly
sidelining him (the point of a hypothetical debate presumably being missed by those complaining).
There is a most definite smugness exuded by about 80% of Ron Paul supporters on here - the trouble seems to be that because supporters of other
candidates are being chased off / shouted down, there is no concept of a balanced debate on here. The RP movement supports itself in such a way that
everything is spun with RP being the moral guiding force and everyone else pawns of TPTB.
I've lost track of the number of times a RP supporter has replied to a Gingrich / Santorum / Romney supporter with "oh, you're brainwashed...too
bad". This infuriating, childish approach to debate has done an incredible disservice to an otherwise reasonable challenge for power, by RP.
You know who you are. Shame on you.
