Hi. I've been lurking for a few days to sort of get a feel of the forum and become familiar with posting styles before I jump into the fire, so to speak. I'm an Independent, meaning I'm an undecided voter. At this point I'm not a big fan of either side, though I do tend to lean liberal more so than conservative at times. I don't have a party affiliation. In the past I have voted for Republicans as often as the Democrats. I'm somewhat of a veteran on political forums. The most recent forum I was active on recently closed down so I'm looking for a new place to contribute. I'm a member of quite a few forums but this one seems to have what I'm looking for. I like how your members interact and I like your format. I see that it's a very active forum with a lot of topics. I tend to post more in the current events threads but I've been know to venture outside my comfort zone if a topic catches my interest. I look forward to discussing topics with everyone.
