Do you think it's more effective to be for or against something or someone?

Something else what?

I'm gonna borrow from Noel's Post #2 and use his Point #2.

"It depends." And "it depends" on each person's cognitive makeup, experience, education and general knowledge. Each person perceives each given scenario, question or situation in a different way and sometimes that scenario, question or situation is more easily "supported" and sometimes it is more easily "opposed" or "confronted" ... from and by their POV.

The overall "effectiveness" of that support or opposition is solely dependent upon the validity of the points presented in their resulting argument.

Tams, regardless of how people view things, there are usually areas of agreement. If we attempt to build solutions or responses based on areas of agreement and be as inclusive as possible by involving as many people as possible in the solution we are stronger. That is why the military requires that everyone put aside their differences once a decision is made, and work TOGETHER.
When we build barriers, divide ourselves, and refuse to work together for a solution, even if it is not the solution we desire, we are weaker.

I must be missing something D ...

While I agree w/ what you have said in your post, I fail to see your post's relevance to the "topic" of discussion.

The "topic" (at least as I see it) is about whether or not it is:
  • More "effective" to support or oppose a position and it's resultant presentation on an issue;
  • Not how to act once a position or decision has been taken/made on that issue.

I did not take the question that way at all. I believe that we need to be proactive and craft decisions that the majority support. It's too late once the decision is made. The tax cut is a bad decision, but it has been made, and it is the law of the land. If the GOP had wanted to craft a tax bill that the majority of Americans could support they could have brought the Dems in and had public hearings. It could have been good, and it could have been unifying. At this point it is a done deal. It isn't going to change, but the opposition it has created will be applied to future decisions, especially voting in the mid-terms.

And the two "positions" both you and I are discussing EXACTLY represents the point I was making when I made my original post.

Thank you! and I'll now sign off.
