• This is a political forum that is non-biased/non-partisan and treats every persons position on topics equally. This debate forum is not aligned to any political party. In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold.

There must be something that unites you. For far too long on this site, we have found only things to disagree on, to go as far as hating eachother for, you go out of your way to find things that will divide you, to turn all conversations of "us against them".

In every country I have lived, regardless of what we believed, or practised, there was SOMETHING that brought us together, whether is be a sport, a custom, something that united us all.

What unites you, regardless of Liberal or Conservative.

Beer.

Hm, not so much. Then you'd get an argument about import vs domestic, dark vs light vs ale vs microbrew.... and then some, ahem, fine gentleman would just have to chime in about how real men drink Pabst Blue Ribbion....

We like to fight.

We fight over politics. We fight over ideology and party. We fight over sports teams. We fight over beer brands. We fight over regionalism. We fight with words, and with fists, and with bullets and cruise missles. We fight wars, and then we fight over whether we should have fought this war or that war.


We just like to fight. Hey, who is surprised here? We got Scots, Irish, Indians, Germans and English all rolled into one, it's a wonder our right hands don't fight with our left hands. :mrgreen:

Being attacked by outsiders, and/or natural disasters. That's about it, except for Katrina. Some jackasses even found a way to make that a liberal vs. conservative, black vs white issue.

While there was a certain amount of tongue-in-cheek in it, I think there was a certain amount of truth too. Historically we demonstrate far more unity when faced with a common enemy. Absent one, we tend to get fractious with each other over any number of lines of conflict, both real and arbitrary. We are a rather contentious people.

Maybe for you old kids, but the younger generations are actually pretty involved with soccer.
This is exactly what we get with all this immigration. Corruption of our younger generations! I think we need to immediately amend the immigration laws to prevent anyone from entering the country who uses the term "American Football" when referring to football and the term "football" when referring to soccer.

Don't believe it?

Try getting into a heated debate with a liberal friend. Right before she's ready to slam out the door, take a fresh baked pan of brownies out of the oven.

My skin, tendons and ligaments.
Without those, I'd be all un-united. :mrgreen:
