I used to like that Republicans can argue a point based on “simple facts” and no necessarily personal attacks. The personal attacks seems to come from Democrats. I have witnessed (and took part) many discussions between Democrats and Republicans over the years that seem to end with the Democrats saying all Republican are racist, stupid or some other personal attack. They could never seem to counter the simple facts or the “simplicity” of the Republican policies. This seems to have changed since the last 2 years since the “Republican” brand has not taken a hit. They seem to have now cornered the market on “personal” attacks while the Democrats are now using “facts”.
