    Hey, I'm new. My name is Jake. I'm a polisci major from Akron, Ohio. I was told via e-mail to post here first, so here you go.

    I found this site via search engine and thought this looked pretty cool. I'm a liberal-leaning moderate, but mostly I just love any political debate I can be involved in. As cheesy as it may be, I think you learn more through discussion than anything else.

    So yeah there's me. Carry on.

    The first thing your going to have to change is doing what people tell you.

    Welcome to USMB, jakebert. Hope you enjoy the boards.
    While free speech is respected, we also make an attempt to respect each contributor. People learn this as they post here often. The venting area is entitled "the Flame Zone" where almost anything goes, and is monitored by the dervish chupelabra manifold. :)

    Thanks for the welcomes everyone. And do not worry, I'm a veteran of enough snarky message boards to know not to take stuff seriously.
