That is actually one of the forums that help to lead to this one - as well as a few on the conservative side.

It is interesting to note that those types of forums have less interaction (% membership to acutal posters) than they do lurkers.

Here we have a pretty strong membership/posters ratio I think.

I think that the Liberals and Conservatives (and those of us that can see thinks on both sides of the aisle) on this site have proven that "Democracy demands discussion". Conservatives do the same, so don't get so full of yourself cowboy! Without havings boths sides represented, it is just a mutual admiration society that stifles free thought.

As Fantasea once said... "Disagreement does not have to be disagreeable"

One of the few things he ever said that I can agree with!

-Contrarian

Absolutely! (I just got goose bumps..)

Contrarian, If it is ok with you...may we keep that on the burner as a possible slogan?

[edit]
While searching to see if that was possibly used elsewhere.. I found this quote.

"Democracy demands discussion, disagreement and dissent."
- Wes Clark 8/12/04 NYC

Do we know if it is used elsewhere?

:confused: :confused: :confused:

According to that website:
LIBERAL FORUM is for self-described liberals, progressives, greens, leftists, socialists, etc. The definition of Liberal we use here covers the entire left side of the political spectrum - it's generic for people who believe in individualism, freedom, equality, the social contract and rational evidence-based (as opposed to morality-based) public policy but often disagree on the application of these principles. It's not for Conservatives or Libertarians, though they can register and participate in the appropriate Debate forum if they like.
and
Liberal Forum is a liberal discussion forum, liberal discussion board, a liberal chat site, a liberal debate forum. The activists, intellectuals and concerned citizens who discuss here agree with Liberalism. They may also agree with Progressivism, Lefitism, Socialism and other political theories.
Debatepolitics.com is a website for debating politics. I'm sure Vauge wouldn't appreciate if a bunch of people decided to start a bunch of threads about knitting, macrame, and pottery on this board. Why? Because that's not the goal of the board.

Liberalforum.org decided that the scope of their discussion was going to be geared around the liberal ideals and to use that as the microcosm. There's enough dissention among those ranks that I'm sure it merits a huge enough board to keep the discussion going. Moreover, the more focused the conversation can be, the less moderation is needed.

The right also have their forums as well. Protest Warrior being one of the largest with 10k+ members and Liberty Forum with 3K+.

shuamort was actually able to key in on the point that I was attempting to make but I failed. That is not their goal.

Before DP, I wanted a political voice and a place that I could call home. Where folks around me might think I am insane but shake my hand and drink a virtual beer with me. Where someone would feel welcome be it 15 mins or 15 months regardless of what they say. Some of you may have seen me on other boards under different aliases - mostly "vauge" or "vaugerant". I have found other boards not representing the political atmosphere that I think the Internet deserves.

:violin
Herein lies the attempt at such an atmosphere.

Vauge, I'm sorry but that phrase is being used by a discussion group that I belong to in CT. It has been around for 15 years and is exactly what you are attempting to do online. It is based upon Ben Franklin's Junto. We get together monthly for dinner, drinks and cigars and discuss politics, philosophy, sociology, religion (surprised heh?) and anything that is intellectually stimulating. We have launced similar, yet toned down versions of our forum in a couple of high schools and just initiated our first in a local university. Adults from the group, sit with the kids and debate (stimulate thought and discussion) to encourage them and assure them that their opinions matter. It's a great success.

If you are ever in the northeast, I'll save a seat at the table for you... they are highly prized.

Urethra will be furious if (s)he sees you coming on to Contrarian like that!

Just wanted to add my two-penneth - this is perhaps the most stimulating, and yet most polite, forums I've been to. Vauge is to be heartily congratulated.

What on earth are you rambling on about?
I am sure somewhere in there you have a great point - I just do not see it.

Slow down, count to 10, and post a logical question or statement.

I disagree with him 99% of the time.

The one thing I admir about Freedom69 is that he speeks with conviction, power, and from his heart. If one can pass though all the capitol letters, spelling, and grammer issues - one can see that alot of his ideas have merit.

I understand the points he's trying to make- about 50% of the time. The other 50% of the time I haven't a clue.:thinking

But then everyone's posts are difficult to decode at times. I can honestly say, that at times, I have no idea what point you're trying to make. As I'm sure you I.
