    I wouldn't.

    In all honesty, I think social media has contributed mightily in the huge division in this country.

    90% of the "political discussion" on USMB is useless partisan noise from the Brand Name party monopolies. It has an expiration date of about a week. There's ZERO lasting value to it -- other than watching the warring tribes engage in a Death Match that's designed to destroy the country.

    So no --- I'd buy them subscriptions to the National Review, The Nation and Reason Magazine and encourage them to be fully informed on social/economic ISSUES and POLICY and prepare themselves to LEAD this country after the demise of the dynasty parties, that are about NOTHING but "winning", which will take the national conversion to the Lowest Common Denominator" and close to ruination....

    'Warring tribes engaging in a Death Match'. lol.

    Some of the expletives, or rather: hand grenades, are, shall we say quite creative at times, wouldn't you think?

    I'd bet it's not really more sophisticated than the war-painted primitive tribes of New Guinea -- facing off with elaborate dancing and shouting and waving of spears !!! :lmao: Or the kind of things the Hatfields and McCoys used to shout about each other's families over the border of West Virginia and Kentucky before a raid.. (IIRC)

    Wnen you've divorced yourself from allegiance to the 2 brand name parties, everything looks a lot stupider and sinister than if you're in a bunker taking fire..

    Actually today I've been reading about the land disputes and petty bickering over parcels of territory, after the fighting with the British ceased.

    I've been to the Virginia side of the Potomac Great Falls area, where the Maryland people would, in former times, hurl verbal expletives over the river to the Virginian folk.

    Yes, definitely. One needs to understand the motives and ideology of their enemies and places like USMB are very good for that.

    No. USMess welcomes and embraces the worst in racism and anti-America and anti-Constitution right wingers.

    There are excellent message boards that encourage discussion and debate of all points of view, which I believe would be a better choice.
