I was hoping the response would be vigorous debate that represents the political spectrum of Hamilton.

It might surprise you, but that's not why all of us come here. Perhaps not even most of us. We come here to discuss, to have a dialogue and to talk about things. The point is conversation, not opposition, and so (gasp) sometimes we are content to agree.

My frustration, as someone who loves both debate and discussion, is that a certain number of posters here are using things like "arguments" and "facts" in a purely token way. It is as if there's a two-fact minimum on here and any two facts in a post magically grants it "above reproach" status, regardless of whether the facts/arguments are relevant, logical or add anything to the discussion. After these facts have been stated, the trolls in question then rant for two days about how "they stated a FACT and got downvoted anyway".

Two facts and an assumption placed in consecutive order do not equate to logic.
