    Because perspective is key.

    Precisely my point eco.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Of course I wouldnt want them eradicated, a lobotomy and a chip implant to make them think just like me would be sufficient

    I wouldn't eradicate them. However they would make a good source for cheap labor.

    I think that many believe that reducing our country's political ideologies down to his or her own...would totally eliminate all of our political problems.

    Re: Would You Eradicate All Persons Who Don't Subscribe To Your Political Philosophy?

    Welp...this thread will probably die pretty quick...BUT, I think my question is valid.

    People have become vicious and hostile against other who don't subscribe to their perspective political beliefs.

    I frequently hear pundits who will say that the "LIBERALS" or CONSERVATIVES...yadda, yadda, yadda. Then wrap every single person's political thinking and personal character (or lack of) into one tiny package...as though they have no mind of their own. All liberal think and act the same. All conservatives think and act the same. And yet, when it gets down to the nitty-gritty. That is completely impossible.

    And for people who say: Don't attack the person...just their policies, etc. IMHO, it is IMPOSSIBLE to separate persons from his or her actions, including politicizes are any other behavior that affects other people

    All liberal are enemies. All conservative are enemies. That's what those who are in power want all to believe this. IMHO, these ongoing efforts to divide people will eventually succeed in conquering.

    People are calling those with opposing views as communist, dictators, theocratic extremist, etc. etc. WHY? This is F****** America!

    Speaking of pundits. IMHO...one of the most disturbing things that appears to be happening, so many people are willing to surrender their critical thinking, problem solving, and even for some (not saying a bunch) their coping skills over to popular radio and TV pundits.

    Most crazy about "PUNDITS"...which has the Webster definition of:

    (1) A learned person: teacher

    (2) Person who gives opinions in an authoritative manner

    Given the meaning of the above two definitive points, most so-called pundits wouldn't qualify as pundits.

    That said, when you read the biographies of our most popular PUNDITS...very few have political experiences in any capacity. It appears that the ones that have the most influence...have the least hands on experience.

    And yet...so many people trust these folks to keep them informed. Most people don't seem to even question many of the opinions made...and a lot of those opinions are nothing more than personal opinions masked as fact.

    Are people too busy to look at the issues and research information, looking for the most factual information available and then decide for themselves?

    Maybe people have become blind and can't distinguish the difference between commentary and facts...?

    Dunno...people would be really surprised if they read the biographies of those in media that they are so emphatically cling these pundits every word...without skepticism.

    IMHO, I think the worse it yet to come.

    That's just politics RM. At the end of the day sane people will see through all the bull****. groupthinkers will buy all the crap.
