    Hey everyone,

    I'm new to the forum and I thought the best way to start is by using this thread.
    I'm a student of political sciences in germany and I am interested in american, european and worldwide politics. I don't affiliate myself with any particular party here, however in the US I would most likely be a democrat.
    I try to base my political thoughts on pragmatic solutions and a personal and important concern for me is the support of scientific research.

    My hope is to have some discussions and to learn more in depth about certain issues. I realized that throwing myself into a debate with someone challenges me to read up more facts and learn more about topics. And that's my main goal.

    I also started doing a youtube channel () where I try my best to explain geopolitical situations. But don't worry, I am not gonna advertise on here. I just mention it so you get to know me.

    See you all!

    Wie geht's?

    You'll find a lot of insults here, don't get involved, just put the insulters on ignore. You'll see German politics is a little different even at the basic levels. I sort of studied politics in Germany, but didn't quite understand anything that was being said, but I've studied the German and US politic systems (the German is far superior).

    You'll understand more by just seeing how strangely the though processes of many of the Americans are.

    Good luck. You'll need it.

    If you're interested in facts, you're not a democrat.

    Vie gehts? You probably have a misconception of Democrats and Republicans or more accurately conservatives and liberals, the guiding principle of the respective parties.

    I lived in Germany for 7 years, beautiful country.

    Nor a Republican. Yes, those who play the partisan bullshit team sport game don't need facts, but any facts that do come their way that suit their needs they might use totally out of context or something.
