Just what is a political debate? It is a means for different opposing team to argue their viewpoint with the intention of transforming the listener or reader to their opinion. There are actually various types of debates depending on the event. You will have public events when it involves a major electoral decision like the presidential election. You could have local debates when it involves a seat in The legislature. The winner of the discussion will be dictated by a voting poll or in some cases a judge. Debates have become popular in all democracies, not only the USA, as part of the process used to choose the government.

You will also have the informal discussions between folks who hold varying political views. The standard of this type of political debate will depend on the skill and knowledge levels of the members. Some people believe so firmly that their view is the only one; they lack the ability to pay attention to the justifications put by the opposing side. This usually results in a heated discussion rather than an educated talk. This is also true of online political discussion boards which are not able to keep an eye on the activity on the site properly. Being online means that you can be confidential and this could give rise to people venting extreme opinions. They might not get the opportunity to talk about these views in reality so take to the forums. Even if the person's views are not extreme, the discussion could quickly lead to an argument as textual content is so often misinterpreted. How often have you received an email and replied as you thought it meant something other than the intended message?

Everybody is entitled to their opinion. That is one of the huge advantages of residing in a democracy. The freedom of speech must not be taken away from any person but when involved in a political debate, it is always good to mind your manners as well.
