    Not too heavily moderated, but well-established rules. I don't get the sense of admin making things up as they go that I've witnessed elsewhere.
    Totally agree.

    I look forward to debates with mutual respect. I research my opinions and hope those on the other side of the aisle do too. I hope to convince others of what I believe, and also hope to learn from those who support ideas which conflict from mine.

    You may notice I support opinion with facts and links. Most will be taken from the MSM, which my opponents on the former message board have been convinced is all Fake. We've come a long way from the days that Walter Cronkite, who was once called the most trusted man in the nation; too many MSM journalists have been labeled as liars, and too many radio and Fox talking heads have been trusted as truth tellers.

    Now that the gloves are off, I look forward to the challenges to come. We live in a tumultuous time, history will be written well after all of us are gone; it is up to all of us to protect what our Founders and The Framers of COTUS left to us. Remembering, that they too had different opinions and somehow left to us the best form of governance the world has ever seen.

    Welcome! I've seen your username before although I don't recall if it was on USMB or some of the other political forums in which I've bounced around. I don't always use the same username, so I'll have to look up on USMB to see which one I used there before leaving for similar reasons you mentioned.

    I only visited one other, but choose this one after reading the rules here. I still lurk on the USMB, but it is toxic and the rules are not enforced equally. I couldn't copy and post a post or thread by some of the regulars there, for they would clearly violate the rules here. In fact no serious debate can be had, since the partisan hacks use ad hominems like "libtard" and worse in off topic efforts to derail serious discussions.

    Ten years at the other place and I'm only a "student" here which only allows me to make a few comments. One being, the USMB has dozens of regulars who believe Conspiracy Theories such as the deep state, Obama was born in Kenya, and Gun Control really means Gun Confiscations.
