• 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.

I'm so sick of arguing over politics.....

It only makes sense. People and individuals tend to be very much alike.

I dont hang out on forums to change someone else's mind. I hang out on them to thoroughly explore my mind, to determine what I think is most important to me.

I would have said that 8 years ago myself.....

I'm not trying to change minds I just tell the truth....

Politics have become gangbanging to some degree... People take sides and it ends at that...

Yeah by the trigger much like Che Guevara - support or die.

Funny how a fool wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt talking about peace, love, hope and dope can't change an educated mans mind...

That's how one evolves from the bull**** to reality...

I refuse to call some people individuals because they're collectivists..

I refuse to call real liberals like myself "liberal" so I call them "progressive."

Animals will be treated as such and addressed as such...

I wasn't trying to make one but.... I suppose I could by saying 95% of non-progressives were once progressive...

I don't know anyone born conservative, however I think 99.9% of us are born "liberal."

People change, but we can't change people. This place is about learning, not changing anyone's opinion.

I would strongly disagree.

I was born and raised far right wing. My parents are/were fundamentalist Christians and very conservative. My Mom still sends me hundreds of right wing emails, hoping to educate me enough to turn back.

I was raised in a very conservative household. My parents are not fundamentalists just Lutherans but none the less very conservative. I started out conservative but slowly turned liberal and am now a socialist. My mom is now more left wing now identifying herself as Liberal, my father is now more left wing and still a member of the Republican party but voted for Obama in the last election.
