    I am by American standards a centrist, no not a lefty who claims
    to be a centrist but someone that on security and economy
    issues is on the right, and on social issues to the left.

    No I dont support the handout system that is practised in
    my homecountry Germany, but I miss a universal health
    system, being aware its not free.


    What I learned from the contributors on this boards
    is media bias.

    Although I dont buy into the MSM story as some here, I have
    become far more critical to publications.

    2/3 is leftist 1/3 is conservative imo for the US.

    The partisanship makes every story distorted and
    I am now more aware then ever how both sides play the
    game with loose informations and slant their articles
    with info that had nothing to do with the subject
    line.

    So for that thanks to the members of the board.

    Due to work I have been slacking in participation but
    I still check in regularly.

    I think you are giving the MSM a dollup they don't deserve. In any case, when you are 'active' you add so much to the board. A bit of Europe and a bit of US. :)laugh: you do need to read the parentheis more closely though.)
