The time for civility is over.

No one ever got anything done by being nice.

It’s like the slave trader shaming the slave about his attitude as he slaps on the manacles.

Republicans tried to demonstrate their generous nature -- "Compassionate Conservatism". No one cared. It was a mistake.
George W. Bush sought a "new tone" in Washington, working with the Democrats. No one cared. It was a mistake.

Republicans are never going to score any points by being nice or trying to appear "kinder and gentler". We need to treat this as a bloodsport. The Democrats are at war with this country's founding principles, and we need to push for them to lose every political battle, 100% of the time.

They say once civility is gone so is the society. I think our side has been trying to hold onto it for a long time. We need to cut our losses and move it to the next stage.

Seems many on this thread see civility, courtesy or just common decency as a sign of weakness and rancor as a sign of strength. That is far from the case and I know, and have known, many people who would very quickly prove that.

Perhaps this should be examined with a little more thought, instead of knee jerk reaction.

I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration. - Hillary Clinton

The call for civility comes with the call for bi-partisanship.

Neither are honest;
-True civility is required by our laws and doesn’t have to be appealed for.
-The true goal is to get the opposition to compromise their principles.
-Every compromise conservatives have made in the name of bipartisanship or civility is a victory for the destruction of our republic at the hands of those who never really believed in it.
