Ok Be honest with me, is this mainly a Republican board?

Posted by   + Show Post

I just have to know because if it is I am just going to leave the group.  I prefer not to argue against rhetoric, morals and anything that doesn't even closely resemble a hard fact. 

So far, that is all I have read and been met with here. 

So be honest with me, is this board made up of mostly conservative "thinkers" who are all about NObama and "Anyone but Obama for 2012"?

Welcome! Hope you decide to stay. Don't let the vocal few bring you down.

Well then I will stick around.  But I do want to note than an actual debate is usually based on arguable facts. I hate arguing pure opinion that is based on ones own beliefs and morals.  You can't debate it, it is a constant circle where no one wins.


So insulting and coming in here like this would give you a great welcome hug?  I was part of another baby board which is really left leaning and were nasty.  This is actually MUCH better.

Cause you couldn't possibly be well researched and still be an extreme Conservative. Good stuff.

Quoting rccmom:

I don't know what to tell you. I am fairly new to the board, and when I first hit it, it seemed overwhelmingly Republican, but I think it is due more to a very vocal few. There actually is quite a variety here, you just have to read the threads, try commenting, and find out who is willing to have a decent conversation. I promise, there are those who will converse and exchange ideas, and then there are those who cannot get beyond rhetoric. I have found some interesting conversations and ideas here, so stick around for a bit and see what you find. It also seems to go in cycles, so maybe you have hit it during a bad cycle. 

Agreed. Initially I thought OMG, this is hard-core Republican, but I do think there are a few very vocal people with extreme views who post frequently who happen to be Republican.  There are some Republicans who have less extreme, or more well researched views who post too, but I don't see their posts as frequently.

I'd guess it's somewhere in the middle, but it's hard to say. If you don't like the board though, quit. Life is too short.

I did a poll once and the majority of the group identifies as Republican or conservative. It's not all drama. I hope you stick around. There are some really good discussions.

Thanks! Even is good. Last I checked the Republicans were winning. Either way, it isn't majority Democrat. :-)

 There was a few undecided and whatever else that messed up the poll.

I'd say the majority of posts created on this forum lean Left because the Mods do. We gave up...because they turn into a mosh pit. *sighs
