It would seem that of late, the population of this board has taken a rather pronounced turn to the right. New members have typically been right-wing oriented, and the posts have taken a decidedly right-wing talking point direction, including much in the way of repetitive spam. It seems that many of my fellow posters on the left-hand side of things, have found this unpalatable and are posting less and less.. It would be unfortunate to see USMB turn into a right-wing echo chamber, ala Townhall.com. Perhaps folks on both sides might want to talk about this issue and express their political leanings to see if my assertion has any validity whatsoever. I, myself, am a leftie.
