    Re: How did you find Debate Politics?

    My former forum was dying (literally - the server would be down for days and weeks at a time) and the participation was minimal and moving one of the forum members who opened up their own forum. That new forum was basically a rehash of douche's from the old forum so I Googled "political forums" looked for the highest post counts and membership and boom. I'm here. There was another forum in the running but after lurking for a while it was clearly inferior.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    blame Hicup. I know him from another forum and he told me about this place.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Someone from another forum invited me here to debate someone who was already a poster here.
    I may be wrong.

    I didn't come to debate politics, debate politics came to me.

    I initially planned to be active in various forums, yet Debate Politics was the best, the easiest, and the most fun. All the other forums only has my membership (with no posts), or very few posts. I'm very active (as much as in Debate Politics) in another non-political forum, though

    I was searching for information on the Jena 6 case and this forum popped up. Started looking around and found it interesting, so I joined. My first forum and my favorite.

    Stormfront was getting a bit too liberal, so I just followed my nose and found Dan's farts and Partisan. Smelled like home!

    Re: How did you find Debate Politics?

    Google search, but I can't remember the term. I was on another forum for years, but it turned into a garbage heap of personal attacks and vendettas. I tried a couple others, but settled on DP. There's always something going on here and the moderation is good.
