Why are Democrats often so Angry?

Whenever I see a discussion concerning politics I typically see angry democrats and calm republicans. Why the anger? Democrats have had a run of 8 years and several large cities out there are completely reflective of the majority of democratic policy, and I can't say that Chicago and Baltimore are all that well off for it... Can't people have reasonable discussions without the anger? Ask yourself why you are so angry about topics. If you can't think of a good reason for it, back off a little and gain some rationality; it won't hurt you.

Every struggle brings lot of stress and every stress ultimately speaks ??

Certainly stress gathers, but when you fly off the handle in anger to prove a point, then that person merely shows that they have less of an argument and more of an emotional upset.

@OneOfMany true may be they need to learn stress releasing tools

@Loverabbit I think every building should have a 'rage room' where you can let loose and break things to vent. Think about how much stress you could let go of and then you'd be a happier person. I think schools really need them...

the anger really doesnt convince anyone, so it's less helpful, and yet people get so over the top with certain topics!

I see a lot of rage but if something is bothering you that much, I doubt whoever you vote for will help at all.

@Jessicalynnt I think intelligence has a lot to do with anger as well. Those who aren't very bright will use their fists first.

I have not. I can imagine there will be lots of kids crying because their choice was not chosen. Although I wonder how many Hillary fans knew that the mainstream media works for her? It's easy to take over the popularity contests when you have a personal propaganda that everyone watches.

@OneOfMany Democratic Party failed to get the silent but deadly platform. Social Networks.

@CaptAlbertWhisker Trump kind of used the infamy card to reap maximum benefits out of the social media platform for free.

I have to say that personally I see as much anger from both parties.

@OneOfMany You would think so, but seriously, I see both groups going off the deep end over almost anything lately. Just makes me more and more determined to stay an independent.

@JolietJake I got mad at one of the independents when I was in college. Ralph Nader was there giving a talk about his plans and how he would approach presidency and said a lot of things, but one part was "and if any of you have any good ideas on how to make this country a better place, I would love to hear your ideas." So I waited in line for a while because I had this technology I was working on that I really needed a backer, and thought I'd at least try the idea on him. Well, I barely got to the "I have an idea.." part when he waved me off and said 'yeah yeah,' and I lost it. I told him that he'd never be president and so on, surprised everyone there and he looked indifferent. Since then I have never trusted anything a politician has said. After all, he turned his back on his word after 15 minutes...

A tool to indicate the individual's presence. Never ending discussions, ultimately, what a wastage of money and time. If, responsibility they would save time and money and conclude their discussions in favorable to the nations future. Learned individuals. Democracy means you have to have an opposition but why, both parties are human, I am sure nobody would do a wrong decision for the country, then why waste time. People have no homes, water, food, clothes, medical - use your democracy resources to reach these areas.

I'm all for a new system, but the one I want in place doesn't actually exist in this world. I create it in an alternate timeline in a story once, and I think it would be nice to bring it over here. After all, the biggest problem with this system is negative numbers. In the new system 0 is the lowest you can go, because the bottom is a new level entirely. Of course, it's a working society, so people would have to get used to that aspect of living.

I do not follow closely your politics, but, seen from here, Donald looks more violent and angry than Hillary.

Donald is certainly angry, but I was talking about the voters more than the representatives.

Democrats are angry? Didn't notice. Why are there so many haters? Now that's a good question. Well. Politics is tricky so anything can occur.

I guess I see it from a calm perspective, but I tend to see it in words like "intolerable", "can't be forgiven", "how dare they" and so on. Perhaps people need lessons in calm discussions 101. "Haters" means nothing to me, so I can't answer that question.
