Debates about politics have very practical results. They are most useful debates. For example, debates are best way to decide who to vote for.

All politicians are the same. They promise things they never can deliver and make their promises based on demographics. At the end of the day, all politics does is divide the strength of the masses, which is exactly what those in power want. A house divided will not rebel.

No, not all politicians are the same. Conservative politicians are quite obviously less concerned with helping the people.

True, but liberal politicians, make programs and then make so many restrictions to those programs that they really don't help.
