    If You Think Debating Politics here is Tough...

    ....try doing it on a forum full of smug Euro Leftists.

    Ho.

    Le.

    ****.

    In one post, it was claimed that Goffords was shot by a dedicated Republican, that republicans will riot if Obama wins, that Romney will implement a Christian Theocracy and immediately invade Iran, and that the Tea Party were violent terrorists, and Occupy was nothing but peaceful hippies beaten up by the facist cops.

    All dead serious, I should add.

    Why I even responded, I will never know.

    Well the Occupy part is accurate.

    I think I'd expect Stormfront to be what it is.

    I wouldn't expect a random assortment of Euro's on a non-Politics forum to be so universally US hating and aggressively far-left.

    Really?

    You didn't think a European message board would be anti American?

    I went to a Harley Biker rally today and was appalled at the amount of anti-Honda people there. Appalling to say the least....

    Aye PK, I suppose you've got a point.

    Of course, if I was that pre-aware, forum-wise, I'd never post in here either.

    Overall, about evenly split. A few great moderates like Doggin and Winston, a few solid left/right guys, and a few fringe/insane far left/far right guys and a decent mix of "Other" guys, i.e. the Libertarian contingent.

    Really? I'm surprised to hear/read that. From a (mostly) read-only perspective, sometimes I think this place is a committee trying to establish the direction of the Republican Party/Conservative Movement.

    From a voter perspective, I suspect you'd find a breakdown of supporters of roughly 60% Romney, 30% Obama and 10% other. Just a guess though. Admittedly, everyone sees things through their own lens (including myself) as its impossible to clear yourself of your own biases.

    Who knows, I generally ignore most of the Republiwargarblers here, a few on ignore, a few not but rarely read.

    I mostly read and reply to liberals or left leaners, and our resident moderates/intellectuals. So I certainly could be biased based on whom I read and whom I think is worthy of reply.

    Be interesting to have a poll of regular posters, but not everyone votes in such polls here. We could always write a list of the JI Poli-Sci Regulars, and decide if we think they're left/right/center/other?

    You're the Mod these days crash get us a list of the top 20-30 posters by postcount in this subforum (Sooth could get that for you), and lets go down the list.
