• This is a political forum that is non-biased/non-partisan and treats every persons 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.

    Age limits for congress?

    I don't even know if this is possible, but if you ask me instead of term limits for congress, there should be age limits. If the people of a state want to keep reelecting someone for several terms, then fine, but it is obvious that Senators like Diane Feinstein are just too damn old for the...

    Assuming the Covid-19 crisis lasts 12 to 18 months, what are likely outcomes?

    Let's just assume that epidemiologists and health authorities are right when they say that the Covid-19 pandemic will last between 12 and 18 months until we have a vaccine. Thus for the next year at least, we could see regular significant disruptions to our economy and lives in general...
