Any time I ever try to discuss issues with a hardcore republican, it is impossible. It immediately turns into them not giving a fuck about the issue and instead telling me how terrible the democrats are and how it's all their fault.

They make excuses for the wrongdoings of their own party based on their hatred for the other. This style of thinking lacks logic, and issues where there is bipartisan support, like war during the plague of nationalism, go unnoticed and on and on.
For anyone questioning the system it has almost becomes a spectator sport, like watching rivals at a football game. They team up against anyone who questions capitalism. As is their history since the early 1900's where the one of many issues, outside of war, where there was bipartisan support was chasing out the communists and socialist worker movements who questioned harsh realities of capitalism. The few who have a public agenda never garner any support for their legislation, like public option health care or monetary reform. They are left in the dust from the plague of the 2 party system that is dependent on corporate funding. Sold out to a corporate agenda over the needs of the public.
Now we have 12 years of war and counting that is now branching out to put drone bases in Africa. 6 countries bombed over this time period. Upwards to a million civilians killed. 2010 saw it's highest civilian death rate in Afghanistan. Privatized military forces called private security contractors making the war more costly and capitalistic than it already was. Giving trillions of dollars to private banks instead of putting funding toward the benefit of the public.
This is indeed a plague on conscience and a betrayal of morals.
