    Hi. :eusa_angel:

    I'm new to this site, just joined today and only have a few posts so far. I actually joined because I was browsing the internet for comments on a movie I had recently seen that deeply moved me. I found a very nice thread on this site, so I basically joined to contact the person who started the thread. He shared a similar experience to me after having seen the film, so I felt the need to connect.

    Anyway, it's funny because I'm not hugely into politics. Not much at all, actually. But I'm sure I'll be able to find some interesting topics to add my two cents into...every now and again. :) I'm a registered Independent so my political views are mixed moreso than fixed.

    I'm female and in my early 20's. Just recently became vegan (as my name suggests!) due to that movie I watched. It changed my life. But I'll stop rambling now and wait for my welcome replies to roll in. ;) (Just kidding).

    You seem very easily influenced. Are you sure you're not a democrat? :lol:

    @ Sunni Man - The name of the movie is "Earthlings." It can be watched on YouTube for free if anyone is interested. Most life-changing film I've seen so far in my life.

    @ California Girl - Nope, I'm not a Democrat. Registered as Independent and have always stayed that way. I think it suits me well. :)

    Welcome, and thanks. I thank you because every time someone says "vegan" I eat an animal.

    P.S. (I hope you have some thick skin, you'll need it here)

    Oh yeah? Is it a tough crowd on this forum? I assume it can be, since politics can get pretty heated (both online and in real life discussion).

    This is the Wild Fucking West, so yes....it's tough.

    You will need a thick skin, because if you whine about much of anything, you will be ridiculed mercilessly. The key is to have a sense of humor and not take anything here personally. And, there are plenty of morons and whackadoodles here, too; but they provide great entertainment.

    Good discussion can be found if you can separate the wheat from the chaff.

    Enjoy!

    Oh, and not ever a vegan, but I am a recovering vegetarian. :)
