• This is a political forum that is non-biased/non-partisan and treats every person's position on topics equally. This debate forum is not aligned to any political party. In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold. We are here to discuss them in a civil political debate. If this is your first visit to our political forums, be sure to check out the RULES.

It will cause a...

10 CONSERVATIVE PHRASES RIGHT-WINGERS HAVE NO BUSINESS USING. We’ve all heard these conservative phrases, like ‘right to life’ and ‘family values,’ But their definitions aren’t very good… 1. Right To Life What They Mean: People should have a right to survive, so long as they haven’t been born yet. What It Should Mean: People should have a right to life, so we should enact legislation that ensures people (particularly the ones who’ve already been born) can survive in the world. No more...
