    VOTE: Your Political Lean on DP

    After searching for a while I couldn't find this kind of poll.

    I'm interested in seeing how many people we have from each political lean at DP.


    Select your political lean.

    I think it's all pretty balanced. I'll add that I think the very liberal seems to out number the very conservative. Also, I'm not going by what they claim as their lean, but how they come across in their posts.
    Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.

    Hell if I know... that's why I'm asking

    With over 9000 members here it would be impossible to make an accurate guess... but I'll guess the average is near the middle

    DP probably is fairly center that will lean to the right a bit. Although recently we have had an influx of partisan hacks from both side making it hard to debate anything.

    There's a page somewhere that shows the stats on this, though I can't find it at the moment. It also includes everyone who was ever a member for the past 6+ years, so it might not be very representative of the forum today.

    I'm a conservative in the truest sense. Unfortunately, most people think that conservatism is composed of religious wing-nuts and military zealots, something I'm certainly not. I'm a conservative in the Goldwater sense, not in the neo-conservative sense. Those people are just extremist religious fiscal liberals in disguise.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I'd say it's hard to debate things on forums in general. I've been to multiple forums in the past (this one is by far the best by the way!), and typically people's minds are already made up as they "debate" things. The only time I've seen opinions be changed is through supplying and reading good points or new factual articles... and definitely not through attacking other people's ideologies, which I see here and elsewhere all the time.

    But even with good points and facts, it's sometimes hard to get through to some people... admittedly, myself included sometimes! But I do my best to keep an open mind.

    I would say that overall the site leans slightly conservative. At least the conservatives tend to have the loudest (and as far as I can tell angriest) voice.

    Mega, you were supposed to pick YOUR political lean. lol




    Can a Mod capitalize "YOUR" in the poll question for me? Or maybe just add a "your" into the title. (Eg. "VOTE: Your Political Lean on DP") THANKS!
