It's the same wherever you go. Politics, religion and of late, global warming, all have two opposing sides who will never agree. Not the sort of thing you want for any community.
Many years ago on WinCustomize a debate started on the then upcoming Iraq conflict. It started ok but ended up with friends being at each other's throats. For me a large part of what was a tightly knit community died at that point and things were never the same again.
So no, no politics. Take it somewhere else.
