I'm starting this thread as a place for members of this Forum to express partisan, political opinions.
Everything is fair game --- conservative views --- liberal views --- communist, socialist or anarchist views --- everything, that is, except personal attacks on other Forum members, obscenities, profanity, etc. In other words, Forum rules apply.
It's not my intention to moderate a political debate, and it's not my intention to present both sides of any issue. In other words, I have no intention of being "fair and balanced".
It's my intention to present my conservative views in the most forceful way possible, without regard to whose toes get stepped on.
If your views are opposite of mine, great! Bring it. Express your views as forcefully as you can, and don't worry about my toes.
Very likely, this thread will be heavy on American politics, as opposed to Canadian, British, German, or any other politics. And that's appropriate: America has a critical election coming in early November. The future direction of this country will very likely be determined this year.
If any of this makes you uncomfortable, then stay away from this thread.
