Is there one on CM? I enjoy political discussion but I'm interested in finding common ground and hearing other people's views expressed in a civilized way - i.e. no name calling, no bashing the other party, etc. Can anyone recommend a group?
Most conservatives would call me a liberal, but I view myself as a moderate.
I would love to find a section where we could debate politics--actually debate, and not have it reduced to some schoolyard-type brawl. If we could stick to the topics and refrain from name-calling and character-assassination, and actually debate issues. . . I'd be one for that.
I don't come to this section much anymore because it's full of those school-yard type antics--the most frequent posters on here aren't interested in debating anything, just in being right and bullying those who have different opinions. That's not my style, and I don't want to be dragged into those kinds of arguments, so I've been avoiding them.

Good luck with this. If you find one let me know. I haven't found much civility on here when it comes to anything controversial.

Good luck finding one that's civil. I mean the pce group is alright but there are definitely some mean women in there... Even moderates get bashed on cm. They can't seem to understand that we don't lean.

common ground is the new word for compromise. I'm not into compromises.
