    Well, I can't say I tried. I came to this board with the intention of engaging in real debates. I know very little about politics compared to most on here, but I was eager to learn. Always debated with an open mind and did my best to show respect for the other side.
    But I am finding this is not a board for debates. It is a board for being right. It is a board for confirming ones sentiments and not discussing them.

    Hannity was no better. A little more civil perhaps due to their Terms of Use, but that was also nothing more than a rant and bash site.

    Anyway, I had some good times, but too many accusations, questions of my charachter, and too many times I was forced to explain myself. And to be honest, I dont want to feel I need to explain why I feel the way I do.

    Anyway, the time has come for me to move on. It was a pleasure meeting many of you.

    Take care and good luck

    Jarhead out <S>

    If you're already gone, you won't be able to read comments, but here goes anyway:

    What makes you think you're any different from anyone else who has a different point of view? Do you think it's any easier for someone like me who is your basic centrist, but lean left, to be accused constantly of being a Socialist? Marxist? Called a stupid idiot just because I take a different point of view? Politics today is what it is: Extremely polarized; an Us vs. Them verbal war, and sadly that probably won't change until another catastrophic event brings us together again. "United We Stand" apparently only applies until we forget.

    I'm disappointed by the people who think THIS board is too extreme and decide to walk away before you realize that you'll find some excellent discussions in between all the garbage, and you stick with those and try to ignore the bullshit. You obviously haven't visited any of the truly horrible message boards and blog sites established by off-the-wall extremists from both the right and the left. Your loss, my friend.

    It's a pity because Jarhead is kind of similar to Navy1960 in that he argues with respect and treats people decently.

    I miss Navy, he's a good guy and I hope he hurries back. And I hope Jarhead stays.

    Except when he loses his temper. But at least he apologizes, I guess there is some merit in that. :confused:
