    In truth, I just plain hate party politics. If you understand them, how can you not? *shrug*

    My bailiwick is ME geo-politics, specifically Islamic fundamentals, and its relationship with the West, since that issue has been forced on us. My studies started decades prior to 9/11, and have become, shall we say, timely.

    I've been scanning the site, looks like a vibrant community. I look forward to meeting you and exchanging ideas and perspectives.
    I've never had a Bailiwick. Now I want one.
    Thanks from Friday13

    Because they are necessary, even if they are a necessary evil? Our Founders hated parties too, but they couldn't keep a political system going for even 10 years without them.

    A warm welcome to the forum....

    Velkommen, Puffin. Hope you enjoy......I was a Republican once, grew up in a Republican family, left, as did other members of my family and some friends when we began to be called RINO, by the NEO republicans that appeared to have taken over the party with themes and attitudes that appeared to toss out the old Republicanism and replace it with something we didn't cotton to which is more reflective of today's man in the White House than someone like a Lincoln, T Roosevelt or D. Eisenhower. Anyhooo.....Now as an Independent, I am referred to as a "liberal" by the neo republicans, which is not unexpected since the neo's appeared to have taken everything to the right, so what were moderate Republicans are now "liberals" and moderate Democrats are now considered communists. It seems, formerly radical liberals, aren't even considered by neo republicans, since communist rouses all the modern day Joseph McCarthy's the neo's need.

    Being an Independent doesn't allow me to escape party politics as I get labeled as belonging to a party anyway.

    No more boring you to death with my POV.....just join the fray and have fun!
