• 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.

    Why health care in Ameirca is so expensive

    There are two primary reasons why health care is so expensive in America. The first reason is personal health choices. By that I mean the food we eat. How little or how much we exercise. We have an obesity problem in this country and it isn't because of our health care system. The second...

    Control of the many by the few

    It amazes me how everything gets distorted in politics. Obama's "Yes we can!" platform should be more like "You vote... You pay... I decide everything else". Obama isn't interested in a partnership with the American people. He wants Americans to vote for him and send him money. Everything...

    Obama to tell country to 'take responsibility' for future

    Obama to tell country to 'take responsibility' for future - CNN.com This really makes me mad. Instead of "take responsibility for our future". it should read "take money from our future". People who take responsibility for their mistakes usually pay for them. They don't steal money from...

    McCain Who?

    You could say I'm neutral when it comes to the two major party candidates. I support Ron Paul and these candidates are nothing like him. So I've marveled as this election has played out. I've watched both sides frantically push for their candidate. It really has been an interesting year or...

    Americans' Faith in Afghan War Fades

    ABC News: U.S. Support for Afghan War Hurt by Country's 'Battle Fatigue' I'm not surprised either. People are waking up to the fact that nation building doesn't solve the "attack on America" problem. In fact the chaos in Afghanistan and Pakistan has hurt the efforts to find those that want...

    Is a policeman's life worth more than a civilian?

    Why is it that if a cop feels threatened they can open fire, but civilians that are threatened must submit? I respect the job the police do. I understand that it is dangerous. However, why must civilians give up their right to defend themselves. Why must civilians submit to every whim of the...
