Coarsness in Debate

Editorial by Jacquie

In today’s political climate, and what many see as the destruction, and demise of our Constitution, it is relatively easy to lose ones cool, becoming coarse and offensive in our response, on forums and in exchanges. Yes, I have been guilty of this behavior myself. I have to admit at the time of my caustic outburst, I thought I felt good, and was quite smug about my comeback, only to realize later that I had lost the battle, and not only lost, but I felt immense, disappointed, about how I had lost.

To lose a discussion on the merits is one thing, to lose due to crude, name calling, or offensive language is inexcusable. At this stage of the game, I make a point of, not using vulgarity. I go out of my way to find the correct name and, insure the proper title to those in office, especially to those with who I am in total disagreement. We have seen and heard the leader of the Senate, Mr. Reid call a sitting president a Liar.Too often members of this  Administration use foul language to bully those who oppose them, and spew  rhetoric that is blatent  thuggery.

As an example, I always refer to Mr. Obama as President Obama. In my opinion, the Presidency is the highest office in the land; in the most powerful nation in the world, and it is the office that demands my respect. I  happen to totally disagree with all of President Obama’s policies, and have no respect for his administration. Having said that when I argue the lack of merits of this Presidency, any offensive rhetoric regarding his policies, create fodder for my opponents, and the message I had hoped to convey gets lost in their response to my earthiness.

With some people especially those on the far left, there is precious little that you can say, that will change their minds. As we, have all come to realize, double standards abound in the liberal left. At least when I walk away or finish my criticism, I may not have won the argument, but my honor is intact, and that is a solid, good feeling.

Who knows my opponent may give a second thought (and in doing so replay my opinion) as to how we conservatives, Keepers of the Constitution, behave in our debates. (I have to confess; sometimes it is a mighty challenge to keep my lips zipped.) Therefore my fellow Patriots, lets take the high ground. Remember get your point out there, and get like minded people to Vote.

Thank you to our Military, who watch around the world,so that we remain free from foreign aggressors

    This all sounds great during NORMAL times. So I adhere to the public discourse while Obama is giving my country a face lift. The people peacfully assemble, write to their congress & senate and tell them NO. Polls come out and everyone of them says the American people give a overwhelming No and they continue to do as they please.

    All I have is my words. When they NO longer work what do I do? If I am standing in the majority or even if I am not should I not use everything I have to defend those who died defending me?

    If there is No grey area and I am right you deserve to be called an idiot in these times. If you show positive attitude towards, Marxism, socialism or communism its game on.

    So as my country burns by a guy who has sealed every document with his name on it he and his supporters can go lick each other than light themselves on fire.

    I do not respect ANYONE who is making my countrymen suffer on purpose.

    There is little to NO time left on the clock. Im gonna blast you when you support this treasonist fool and will hold my head way up high. I’m AMERICAN and I take NO crap from socialist.

    People run across our borders to ENTER freedom and ESCAPE from OBAMA policy

    Thanks for your response, I certainly see your point of view, and I certainly know how hard it is not to rip someone in the opposition apart…..Each day I see President Obama, destroying my country and bold face lie along with the thuggery that goes along with this administration, it becomes harder for me to remain civil…….I question in my mind if this is part of the plan, to rile us up to get us off track and distort our message….so my effort is to try to get my message out…..Hoping that we can take our nation back. Remember It will take many from all walks of life to throw the thugs out…..I do not Respect President Obama …I do respect the office and what it should stand for
    Thanks PatriotWatch for all you do

      I’m along side you all the way. Your method is the perferred means of communication. Would be nice to be able to debate different opinions without the lies and distortions.

      I’m afraid we need to go to sleep till Nov 2012 and start fresh. Unless the people take to the streets which Obama desperately wants us to da and unfortunatly maybe our only recourse

      Your right——— I am just mad.

      I miss America

    While taking the high road in political debate is surely the honorable way,it has proven to be a complete waste of time with the lies,deceit and fraud of the left. When making “facts’ available to the herd that worships at the alter of the ‘one’ you will be soundly name-called and lied to. I have zero respect any longer for the dems of this nation.They willingly let their party be corrupted and hi-jacked by the hate-America first crowd. These people are not merely political adversaries,they are enemies of freedom,liberty and justice and need to be treated as such and called out every single chance we have.

    As far as respect,that is something earned.The president has earned the contempt of America. Earnings are something you work for. That has been his choice and agenda and he has indeed earned his reputation as a deceiver and a liar. Those who continue to defend this corrupt administration have shown themselves to be ill-equipped to handle the truth and unable to speak it.

      Amen rock n roll brother…………………………….

    I agree with you that this President has earned contempt from the majority of Americans. His lies and that of his administration also his cohorts in Congress go against everything this nation stands for and what so many have died for. I want to get the message out to as many as I can about ridding us of this evil in November. When I use coarsness in my arguments, I feel it takes away from the facts that we need to make public,and to remind people of all the things this Administration has done to destroy the Constitution in less than 2 years…… This may not work for everyone , but that is what is so wonderful about America
    Thanks paleryder

    I often write of obama without a Capital much less president because he is an illegitimate president under the natural born citizen requirement. He has dual citizenship as his father was a Kenyan. I lhave seen 99% of the political speech that is what you call coarse and what I call profane and vile to be from liberals. Even the prime time media calls Tea Party members teabaggers knowing full well what it means.
