Hello, I'm Paul and I'm an message board-aholic. I found this site through a Google search because I've been craving political discussion and debate. I hope to use this as an opportunity to learn and, on occasion, have someone else learn from me. My main interests are in foreign policy and international relations. I am originally from the Mid-Atlantic. My background is liberal, but I am much more of a moderate. My mom is vocally on the left, while my dad tends to be more level-headed. In recent years, I've become more liberal, however, although I certainly welcome a shift back to the right. My turn ons include rational arguments. My turn offs are repeated talking points. Long walks on the beach are ok. I'm also interested in music, sports, food, coffee, tea and really anything else, so, if you're interested, send those discussions my way.
