U.S. Politics forums merged

  1. Just a heads up...

    All Political Crossfire and the Campaigns and Elections topics are now available under U.S. Politics. This was done to increase participation and focus in the U.S. Politics instead of having similar information posted across multiple forums.

    thank you for understanding

    Sometimes I almost wish we didn't even have a political forum here @ AN. There is SO much controversy and so many people, myself included, have said things we shouldn't have over the course of the years. But then I remember back about 7 or 8 years ago when the idea was first being batted around.....and guess who was one of its more vocal supporters? LOL

    That's funny Marla . .. .I remember now that it was different when I first joined BUT BUT BUT . . . .that did NOT keep the controversy from happening. Remember the mass exodus over unpolitical stuff?

    I like the political forums but I've learned to sit back and watch for the most part.

    well, i like politics and current events very much, and always am hopelessly naive that posting info can help someone learn a new idea. But, i don't always like joining in political threads, not always.

    but, i figure, no one is 'forced' to read political threads if they do not want to, so no harm in having that area for people who do want to discuss those topics. Others can skip over it.
