To debate anyone, anywhere, ever is to have a mental disorder.

Insanity is a mental disorder.

Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over again and again and expecting a different result every time.  

Debaters try to persuade people over and over again and again and every time they expect to make a difference and change someone's mind ;)

It is true that mental disorder is solely owned by Democrats and the Democrat Party.

I might agree with you were it not for the fact that enough people's minds were changed to not vote for this new age extremist Democrat Party.

Someone finally got through the thick heads of these people voting for Democrats.

Man, there is no end to the contradictions you have. This one is great because you completely discredit yourself.

You personally believe that you can't convince voters for Democrats with your truth because they refuse to hear it, but you also think that Republicans were able to change the minds of voters for Democrats. Therefore, either you are lying about telling the truth or you recognize that Republicans had to lie to won the election. But, you also believe that the only honest party in the election were the Republicans. So, either way you are a liar. Thanks man.

Are you going to put out a greatest misses album? These are gold.

Side: True.

Man, you've been paying him so much attention?

I'd say he must be flattered.

Side: True.

I guess their perseverance is based on the principle of the drip eventually wearing the rock away.

Also, the constant regurgitating their ecclesiastical message helps to reinforce their own beliefs.

That's not even the definition of insanity, it's just a quote. Trying to dispute someone else's opinion isn't equivalent to a having a disorder that's detrimental to life quality, but gg

So, the correct term is perseveration.

Also, you know, the problem of induction. Just because something happened doesn't mean that it always will.

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

Anyway, this is the definition, from the Oxford Dictionary of Law,

A defect of reason, arising from mental disease, that is severe enough to prevent a defendant from knowing what he ...

The one from that page isn't clear enough - it goes into the legalities too soon.

Your debate hinges on your definition of "insanity" and that definition is neither a textbook nor contextual definition but instead just a working definition that suits your cause in this case, and it applies only to some but not all cases. People with dementia, schizophrenia, clinical depression, whatever, do not necessarily fit the repeat behaviors expecting different results definition even though those are well recognized examples of insanity.

But if you expected a different reply from me than this one then indeed you might fit your definition and confirm your own debate topic just in your own case.

And our continued mutual use of said argument in a way confirms your debate premise.

Insanity-the state of being seriously mentally ill; madness.
