    Hi, my name is Amanda (duh) and I'm trying to learn more about politics and others views. I was inspired by Sarah Palin to think that maybe I could be more than I ever thought possible, after all she almost made it to the White House!

    I'm mostly conservative with womens issues like abortion being the exception. I'm hoping to find people that will take me seriously and not just dismiss me because I'm young. I'm saving up my money to go to try to start college next year. Until this presidential race I didn't think there was any reason for someone like me to even try to go to college but I have a renewed hope and maybe with some luck I will be able to make a difference in someone else's life someday.

    Hey Amanda. Welcome. Nice to meet you.

    This is a cool site, but just in case you haven't been lurking or anything, let me say you can expect to get some pretty ridiculous personal attacks due to your view point. Don't let it get to you :)

    Hi Amanda! So how long have you been out of hs? I'm one of several quasi-professional students though my day job is teaching. What are you thinking of majoring in?

    Don't be scared of del amanda, he's received a haircut since his avatar pic was taken!

    Glad you are saving up for college! It's the best thing in the world at your age! Learning is my favorite pastime! (you'll learn a lot on here too lol)

    I can handle disagreement and criticism, I won't tolerate abusiveness though. In the worst case I know how to ignore with the best of them. The problem I've seen is dismissive attitudes... I'm old enough to vote, that means my opinion counts whether anyone likes it or not.

    I also hope people will give me a chance and hear me out, I'm not an old conservative, I'm young and I get in disagreements with my family, who is also conservative, all the time because they think I'm too liberal. :tongue:

    Thank you. Are you really Sunni? I think that you could provide some very interesting perspective on many issues.
