• 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.

    Do you believe the speed limit should be lowered to 55 MPH to conserve gas?

    The gas-saving merits of this proposal are good, but I think the real clincher for me is the fact that lowering the speed limit will save a lot of lives. Speed limit's 55 MPH, you drive 60 MPH, minimum. Hell most will probably push 65 if not higher anyways. Besides, it's easier to time your...

    Here's a nifty little trick.

    I can't see this trend continuing as well as it has. With the American electorate split so evenly and expecting far more than the government can deliver, the party in charge will fall out of grace much sooner than they would have in one of these "natural" cycles. I'd say four consecutive terms...

    Selective Service?

    If Ikari has the "right" to shoot anyone who came to take his guns if a Constitutional amendement was passed banning guns, then I have the right to refuse to allow my government to force me out of the country to die.

    Gallup Daily: Obama, McCain Tied at 45%

    Regardless of what you think of all these polls, I think it's telling that McCain has not been ahead in any head-to-head poll with Obama since a USA Today poll from 5/3 (McCain +1). McCain has not been ahead outside of the margin of error since a Rasmussen poll from 4/13 (McCain +7).

    Lieberman Cites Reasons for Supporting McCain

    I almost want a Republican to win his Senate seat in 4 years so we can get a different Democrat in there ten years from now.

    Poll Shows Obama in Double-Digit Lead

    I don't understand the hate for polls in a thread titled "Poll Shows Obama in Double-Digit Lead" either.

    San Francisco may name sewage treatment plant after Bush

    I can't think of any way to show more respect for everything this country stands for than to not feel obligated to show respect to someone you simply do not respect. I'm not saying you shouldn't be able to show as much respect as you want. I personally think it's just as American to show as...

    Obama Embraces Supreme Court [Gun] Decision as "Well-Needed Guidance"

    Thank you for contributing On the issue I do think Obama was pretty staunch in his opposition to handguns. But I simply do not see a difference between this and the many flip-flops that McCain has made. I'm not saying that to change the subject but merely to show that the issue of who...

    would you accept this political division?

    Us Breadbasket-ers would totally jack up the price of all your food ;) But seriously, I'd only accept this if we got Chicago and Dallas... Dallas doesn't belong in "Dixie", and we need some place other than Kansas City to call our capital! Chicago would be a nice fit.

    Have you ever been robbed or burglarized?

    I guess I'm lucky. Once in Saint Louis I was walking, alone, in a pretty bad part of town, when I get circled up by three guys who pull out knives. Two of 'em were big - as in overweight - and one was small, as in 120 pounds max. Without thinking, I sprinted headfirst right at the small one...

    Supreme Court finds individual right to own guns

    Re: High court strikes down gun ban I don't know if that was directed at me or not but my point was that the anti-gun activists are attempting to change Constitutionally-protected laws. The only remaining course of action they now have is to amend the Constitution. Seeing as that is...

    Supreme Court finds individual right to own guns

    Re: High court strikes down gun ban I understand how some may think that guns for personal use should be banned (even if I don't agree). However, you're taking your personal beliefs and attempting to mold the Constitution to conform to them. You want to ban guns, you try to amend the Constitution.

    Poll Shows Obama in Double-Digit Lead

    Well it's safe to say that the close poll we see here is now the outlier. Remember the good old days when the Obama +8 poll was the outlier?

    Perhaps you should avoid the US Elections forum in one of those, whatcha callit? Oh yeah, election years. If you aren't interested in reading about the election that is.
