But some of the statements about the platform itself were incorrect.  So the 
platform was presented unfairly in some cases and that can be very annoying 
too.  Maybe more so than actually bashing the candidate.  Not that you or 
anyone else intentionally said things about the platform which were incorrect.  
There are things I've heard about the Democratic platform that I'm sure aren't 
true so it does happen but it's hard to debate in this forum.  It would just 
generate a whole bunch of other discussions that wouldn't go 
anywhere because getting to the truth regarding politics just doesn't happen.  
Truth and politics are two words that should never be used in the same 
sentence.  Also, I worry that if a person with a FeLV + cat joined the group 
right this minute and heard all this talk about the Republican platform and 
he/she happened to be a Republican it would be hard for them to stay on the 
list and get information that might help the cat.  Just seems fruitless and 
possibly detrimental to continue the discussions.

I must respectfully disagree, this wasn’t about bashing anyone– to state a 
platform on which a candidate is running is just that – no one was calling any 
candidate horrible names!  From: Felvtalk

Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] Off topic: President I don't post very often but had to 
put my 2 cents in on this topic.  I think if more people would vote for the 
person they think would do the best job instead of getting hung up on the party 
this country would be a heck of alot better.  I have voted for Republicans and 
Democrats for President.  I don't agree with getting on here and bashing 
another party.   I really don't think this is the forum for politics.  Cindy

Date: Wednesday, October 10, 2012, 9:52 AMI really think this discussion has 
turned to a Republican bashing session.  We Republicans disagree with almost 
everything you guys have said but there's no point of getting into it because 
no amount of discussion will change your mind.  And that's okay because that's 
what makes America great - we can disagree without feeling the threat of 
reprisal.  It is interesting to hear the Democratic views and what things you 
believe but some things are just not true like the supposed "war on women."  
Mitt and Paul do not have the complete authority to do some of the things 
mentioned and many Republicans wouldn't go along with these kinds of things 
anyway.  But it's okay with me if that's what you believe, I just don't think 
we can intelligently debate all the facts when we are not in the "inner 
circle."  I think we've worn the topic out and nothing you guys have said will 
make me change my mind about Obama and obviously I will never change your minds 
about Republicans so let's talk about something else like animal abusers and 
trying to get the death penalty for them.  Just kidding - well kind of.
