    Only the ones who block liberals can appear to win. That's why so many of them block us.

    I find that most people are not sufficiently critical and aggressive when debating a point.

    The kindest and most polite way to respond to an argument is to make up your own. That has the unfortunate consequence of presenting the audience or your readers with two lines of argumentation from which they can choose... that's very weak, rhetorically speaking. It's much more powerful to draw from the analysis of your opponent and provide a synthetic argument. However, it's also much harder.

    There are many positions from the right that rests upon a rationalist approach or economic models such as that of pure and perfect competition. Tell me, how many people know how these frameworks are built, upon which assumptions they rest or what sort of epistemological positions they entail?

    Very few... so, the debates you see or read about aren't debates. They're simultaneous monologues where two or more people speak their mind without listening to what the other has to say -- and, in the end, members of the audience picks the one they already agreed with. All the above means is that you're a right-winger, not that they are peculiarly good at debating -- and you can verify my claim since my pretension is that a leftist would feel the opposite.

    It's called confirmation bias. Liberals win arguments and conservatives win arguments. Of course, a conservative will usually sound right, just as a liberal will sound left (Political pun)

    Conservative arguments seem right to conservatives and liberal arguments seem right to liberals. In the amusing words of Thackeray, How strange it is, God doth contrive, That every child that's born alive, Is either a little liberal, or a little conservatiive.

    Really, really? Look what has happened to what the conservatives said was the biggest scandal in American history, the Benghazi affair. It has been proven to be a total farce, the conservatives lost.

    The ultimate determination of that is the national elections and the Republicans have not won one of those in 9 years.

    Liberals know as much as a box of rocks..

    The Liberal ideology is a theory , fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and which holds forth beliefs that have no basis in reality.
