    Completely subjective, what is "name calling" to one person is not to another. ;)

    No one can disagree with a liberal on any issue without being called racist, homophobic, or other names.

    "Name calling" and abrasiveness occurs on all "sides", even us independents and greenies tend to be abrasive.

    I agree, but the main stream media has said conservatives are just racist because they dont support obama's policies.

    That they are anti woman, if they dont support abortion

    Anti kids, if they support school choice

    anti gay if they support and wish to preserve traditional marriage

    are war mongers for wanting to free the people of iraq and afghanistan from tyranny?

    are anti poor if they believe minimum wage laws dont work

    And liberals are anti-American if ... if some loudmouth conservative thinks they are.

    Knee-jerk name calling is a stupid dismissal tactic and unfortunately every side does it, because getting into a real debate might force you to question your stances, can't have that.

    It seems to happen the most when you've convinced yourself you're utterly right and the only reason anyone would disagree is if they were evil. Lukily those are the extreme ones only.

    Same here, it's easier and sometimes your knee jerk reaction is right. I was checking out this one person's writings to see if they really were as stupid/wrong/hopelessly lost as I thought they were, I got a headache from all the stupidity and head smacks I endured reading it.

    Although sometimes people you thought you had pinned down surprise you with beliefs/reasoning you wouldn't expect them to have (which has also happened to me).
