    Re: Presidential Race Opinions

    I touched on the subject here-
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ad.php?t=56894

    and as you can tell, many people refuse to talk about it. If you want to have a actual discussion feel free to PM me.

    Re: Presidential Race Opinions

    Most of us refuse to talk for similar reasons. I speak only for myself on this issue, but I hang out in the cafe to avoid the "issues of the day". I have my beliefs and convictions about our country and the people vying to lead it.

    At the end of the day, however, threads like this generally don't do anything except foster ill feelings. You won't change your opinion of any candidate or topic based on anything someone says on here, any more than I would.

    So most of us, I think, pass these topics on by and go on to something more fun. Cheers!

    And if I'm wrong about the crowd sentiment, well, thats okay, too...

    I agree with you for the most part. But I will also like to add that it is sad that we can't have a adult conversation about the subject either. The members of the Pinstack community I have encountered on this board all appear to very intelligent, level headed people. I would really like to hear opinions and various points of view. Unfortunately there are some people out there who cannot disagree respectfully.

    Re: Presidential Race Opinions

    I hear ya. But even intelligent, level headed people can have strong opinions about issues that are diametrically opposed to yours. No amount of discussion, debate, or philosophical waxing will change either person's opinions.

    Political debates, for whatever reason, in online forums, seem to degrade quickly into the "YOUR A RETARD" posts (grammar mistake intentional). So most of us intelligent, level headed stackers leave that stuff to the blogs and political forums.

    Agreed. I guess just this isnt the forum for debates

    Re: Presidential Race Opinions

    In the end its not really about changing ones mind, I just would like the opportunity to expand my own knowledge and the way that is accomplished is by talking about things. As you implied, too bad this is not the place for that.

    I think its more about showing how passionate you are about a certain subject, but some people cannot handle the fact and get heated about it.
