• 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.

    Does the NPT matter anymore?

    And if the NPT doesn't matter anymore, who sets the standards for civil and military nuclear programmes? Inking a deal with non-NPT signatory India legitimizes its nuclear programme that operates outside international guidelines. Condemning Iran at the same time makes the water pretty murky...

    Domestic Spying

    Here is the new MoveOn add: https://political.moveon.org/donate/notillegal-QT.html IANAL, but this NSA program seems to be a total overstep of presidental authority. The FISA court has a provision that allows court approval to be obtained after the fact. This invalidates the "need for...

    Scooter Libby finally released Judy Miller from their confidentiality agreement, allowing Miller to testify and in turn get out of jail. I am guessing Scott McClellend is in for another rough breifing. Anyone shocked that it was Libby? I hope not. This has been a bad month for the GOP. It...
