In case you haven't noticed, politics have been bottom of the barrel for some time now. The R's suck, the D's suck and they both win elections with negative campaigning, empty promises, rhetoric, half truths and divisiveness. Like it or not, there are large numbers of voters in both bases who "have no ability to determine fact from fiction". I mean heck, you had MSNBC and CNN just last night, suggesting that the election results in Virginia were because of white supremacy. That's just the most recent example of many from both sides we could easily find.
Why aren't you capable of just engaging with my argument like a normal person?
