nageki, it is because what happens in the US affects the rest of the world.

I'm just gonna keep posting it until someone quotes me or something I guess... Why does a Canadian (5Cats specifically... but others out there as well) care about American politics at all? It`s a valid question I want answered, so please quit deleting my posts about it...

tl;dr: Facts > Interpretation in "my" humble opinion, because I don't believe interpretation should be delivered as fact.

5cats, we seem to partially agree here. The amount of votes someone gets is a fact. Whether or not that won is a separate yet related fact. There is no interpretation really needed upon delivering these points. Where things get muddy is when you have many different people looking at the different opinions that are [in many cases loosely] based on the facts instead of the facts themselves. This causes arguing using the opinions rather than the facts, and this is just misinformation being flung in all directions while the facts are completely disregarded. I have seen this done by one here frequently by those suffering from different cases of severe polarization.

patchgrabber: No, use of those words may still weaken the argument, because as I said before only one exception is needed to prove it untrue. However, as I just did, people can claim that it's just a generalization and get away pretty much unscathed.

Btw, I don`t recall saying, "The private sector always runs things better than government". If I did it was meant as a generalization. There are certainly things that only the government can do so there would be no way to compare those aspects.

These are no "semantic gymnastics", these are just wise rules to follow when arguing. If you wish to be unwise in your arguing, go right ahead.
