    Wonder if anyone on these boards has changed their position on one or more political issues as a result of the arguments put forth by a board poster? Has anyone changed their politics?

    I havent, but it does confirm every stereotype about liberals I've heard.....no logic, reason or truth....and they are not tolerant......they are MILITANT homo lovers....and I mean there is no room for disagreement with these folks.......

    I learned quite a bit on a few issues. I think I'm more open to gay marriage than I was when I got here....not so much against it as I was but still not convinced it's a good thing for society. I think I'm at the point where I think we might as well try it, I don't really think it can make things much worse.

    I do think our country is worse off today than when I came here.

    I'm much more proud of the liberal stances I've taken.

    I have found out that I can be wrong as well as others.
    I have learned more than if I had not been on a computer interacting with other posters, I would not have learned many new ideas and information.
    My main interest here is not to paint groups a a whole but to recognize the individual.
    Those of you with hateful 'tudes are mising out on life, good life. I know, I was once an angst ridden person with a heavy chip on my shoulder.
