Brand new to the message board. I'm an 18 year old high school senior and I took a poly-sci class at a local community college and loved having discussions with my openly homo-sexual socialist professor and the people representing varying degrees of political ideologies without getting into yelling matches, just heated discussions. I myself tend to agree with conservative economic policies and some liberal social policies. Not 100% of either however. I decided to join because I simply can not have these kind of discussions with my peers.
