Hey, just left a different forum after being a regular poster for about five years. I feel the need for a new culture or new environment although things are probably the same everywhere. Extreme partisan lines drawn down the center of everything. Anyhow, haven't received the email to verify my account yet so I'm not sure if this post will go through. My political views have been changing over the last couple years, more independent or outside of the box would be the best way to define it. I think we should all at least try to advocate truth as opposed to pushing distortions in line with our preferred political sect. I try to reject the Democrat/Republican framework as much as possible but have agreed with various polices from both parties at one point or another. Generally I would like the Republicans to drop religious social conservatism and would like Democrats to drop identity politics. Most of my posts here will probably center on today's culture war, economics and foreign policy. That's all for now.
