In this section, are there more Liberal Trolls bashing Conservatives or Conservative Trolls bashing Liberals?

and is it more common to see Liberals setting up fake Conservative accounts and using it to make Conservatives look bad or more Conservatives setting up fake Liberal accounts and using it to make Liberals look bad?

Who and which side is really taking over this section the most!

BQ: What do you think of the Politics section? Do you like it?

    Children bashing children. It is borderline embarrassing to be here. It's like watching a wreck on the side of the road-it looks horrible but you have to stare.

    Not sure.

    I certainly have seen both but as a conservative, the fake conservatives stand out more to me. I think the conservatives will notice the fake conservatives and the liberals will notice the fake liberals. So I suspect you are a conservative yourself.

    It is not even close. Cons have taken over this site in the past couple of years. The Con trolls out number the Liberal trolls at least 10 to one.

    The number of Cons with fake accounts also outnumbers Libs ten to one.

    There are way more Conservatives in the section. They are all over the questions with the same talking points.

    The one point they just can't handle is this:

    The last Republican to balance the budget was Nixon in 1973. That's over 40 years ago. Do you think this has anything to do with our deficit problem? They are desperate to take credit for the period when Clinton had a balanced budget.

    How can you be so self-righteous to think your ideas will save the country when those same ideas have not worked for the country when you had power for most of the past 40 years.

      I think it's a bipartisan problem. It's more than a cliche that Washington is out of touch, and far behind, with what's going on in America. The liberals want to support the world and wrap everyone in social programs by taxing the rich more.The conservatives want to give too many perks to the rich.

    You give us too much credit. If you look bad, it is of your own doing.

    I have no control over what you type and how foolish you make yourself look. Personal responsibility and all of that.

    As to fake accounts. It wouldn't occur to me to do such a thing. It's a pretty unstable mind to do something like that. There may be a shortage of jobs, but there is no shortage of twisted minds on this planet.

    I like trying to reason with people up to a point where I get completely frustrated and sick and tired of the level of idiocy in the world and this website, especially relating to politics. I wil stay off the site for a few months until I think that I can stomach it again!

    I think there are more political bigots attacking patriots (on either side of the political aisle) than anything else while pretending to be what they aren't (patriotic Americans).

    I find their behavior as contemptible as you do.

    I just don't confuse them for the members of the party, themselves.

    I don't hate half the country, and see patriots in both parties trying their best and holding a great political dialogue.

    It's the trolls that are political bigots who think the ends justifies the means that I despise (in terms of their behavior, since I don't hate anyone).

    It seems to me that there are more conservative opinions here. And I agree with Tania. There is a lot of mean spirited conversation going on here. I don't mind questions that challenge my viewpoints but the intellectual creativity of many of the posts is severely lacking.

    It's about 50/50. Both sides share the monopoly of having idiots on the Internet.

    BQ: When I fist began participating, I found the site to be informative and entertaining. Lately, I wonder why I bother participating anymore.

    I think trolling is an Equal Opportunity Employer on Yahoo. BQ: It is mostly entertainment for me any more I took it seriously early on but not now. It is what it is.
