    Provided Romney won, It's well worth it.

    j/k, not it's not a great idea, but I had this experience several times while 'living' in SOviet Monica.

    Shows a lack of preparation to support your side. You should have your facts and positions developed so you can verbally annihilate the other side...like Obama did, only opposite.

    No it isn't. Each side has to show civility when it comes to discussions of this nature and a sense of respect for the other side. Unfortunately, both lare lacking these days so I'm not surprised.

    That is completely ridiculous and unnecessary. I think it shows a lack of being able to see the other perspective while still clinging to your own.

    Getting into discussions of politics or religion can sometimes kill relationships.

    Haha, I wouldn't mind seeing Obama smack Romney around a bit!

    But, seriously, sometimes we all need to step back, take a deep breath, and figure out how to infiltrate the enemy by using scare tactics!

    For instance, Jockfever would be horrified if he knew that Mormons plan to convert Christians into believing Jesus was an alien.icon_idea.gif

    Discussing politics with an impaired judgement?
