    Smile Hello Folks

    Thx here.

    I have been a liberal dem ever since the Reagan years. (I considered myself a moderate repub politically then and liked Reagan... before he started us down the road of ruin.)

    Spent three years at another dem board, smaller than this one, but eventually all the opposition got chased away and now the board is pretty much a ghost town.

    From there I went to a precious metals forum with a very active "general: section where all the political threads were set.

    Mostly RP libertarians and nuvo tea partiers. (Same ol repubs in a brand new box... desperate to wash their hands of the Bush failures, most of these folks have been Ron Paul supporters since his first day in office. (Yep... or so they claim.)

    I don't mind being vastly outnumbered, that was a large board and I wonder if there were five or six dems there.

    Yet, almost any thread turns into a pecking party and the way they pile on I felt like Ron Paul. lol

    Also, the conspiracy theories that float about can make you gag. Everything under the sun, every moment in history is a plot by the illuminati to separate you from your freedoms and your tax dollars...

    Two years of that and I've had enough, can't stomach it anymore. (Right now they are chewing over a birther thread.

    So, I decided anymore time there was not productive or healthy for small animals and young children. (GET ME OUTTA HERE!)

    Looking forward to reading and posting in a reasonable, rational forum with some earnest debate.

    Nice to be here!

    Thx

    Thanks you guys!

    Lol, my last posts at that board was to ask if anyone thought it might be just a little embarrasing to ask a President/candidate for their birth certificat, and I don't blame Barack one bit for telling these loonies to go jump in the lake.

    Next, someone was wondering if wind power might not "wear out the winds", lol. I ended up setting a link to a youtube vid showing the Siberian tundra turning into lakes and swamps, percolating methane all the way.

    But, no sense in trying to reason with the unreasonable and I'm glad I shook the dust of that forum off my feet.

    Thx
