    Hey everyone!

    I'm just joining the forum and am excited to participate here. I've been hanging out in conservative forums that have a propensity to ban liberals - which takes all the fun away; having a bunch of us conservatives sitting around telling each other how right (correct) we are is not any fun.

    I also checked out a couple liberal forums, thinking I could get plenty of passionate debates as a rare conservative on those platforms. Well, many liberal forums just ban conservatives so they're as boring as are those conservative forums - not that they banned me; I just didn't bother to join after seeing the close-minded policies.

    The great thing, I hope, that I see in politicalforum.com is that the numbers on the left and on the right seems more balanced and there's plenty of great debates going on.

    I see the rules say that my first 10 posts have to be moderated... Well, those posts will all be submitted soon after I get off work tonight :). I have a dozen threads open where I've just been waiting for my account approval so I can jump in.

    I (gee... 4 out of 5 paragraphs start with "I". What does that tell you about me?) do love to debate. I try to, mostly, do it logically and not emotionally. I offer a lot of references and links and quotes to back up my argument and expect to win every debate... It's going to be fun. Hopefully for you as much as for me.

    Be welcomed, also understand that "Conservative" is not what it was 10 years ago. Many of the old school are now considered Liberals by the Trumpists here so realize that going in and you will have a good experience.

    ~ Welcome to the club. I think many of us are looking for the same as you - balance . It certainly is not there at many political websites / threads .
    See you around ... :handshake:

    Well, I hope to unbalance the balance :) I just need fodder to feed the debate. :smile:

    Republicans aren't what they were 10 years ago, or 40 years ago but conservatives are. Those who aren't the same aren't really conservatives :)
