JMad, believe whatever you like. I'm tired of trying to explain things to someone whose attitude is at best dismissive. You complain about the "football mentality" of politics, and yet you've displayed the same attitude in this discussion. No one here was making this out to be an "end of the world omg" issue, but you seem intent to characterize any arguments that don't align with your views as such. I can't speak for anyone else, but I was just trying to explain to you why this DOES matter to a lot of people, even if it doesn't matter to you.
