    Hello everyone out there. I have just joined your web site. I am a conservative senior citizen concerned with our world today but no one listens. I am surrounded by PC liberals and feel frustrated. My first comment, in the form of a question, is - who tunes in to this forum? Are you all conservatives, so that I will be speaking only to people who agree with most of what I have to say, or are there liberals who regularly join in discussions? I am new at this and, might add, an older person who is technically challenged. I do not twitter, tweet or do any of those other "Letter" options available. I am the only person in the entire free world who still does not own a cell phone. But I love my country and thank God every day that I was born an American. I look forward to hearing from some of you. When I am finally comfortable with the newness of this, I will post what truly drove me to seek out a suitable sight for free speech.

    you must not be capable of defending your "ideas" if you only talk to people who don't call you on nonsense.

    Thank you for responding so quickly. I'm not sure I understand your answer and clarify my post. I WANT this site to be viewed by everyone, not just conservatives or how else can we begin to narrow the divide between us?

    Everyone's here, left, right, and center. Some are nice, most are tolerable, some are just batshit crazy and should be avoided.

    You might want to post in the Clean Debate Zone and the Lounge until you get a feel for the place.

    Welcome, Narrow. You'll find this is not a particularly friendly or open-minded place, but there are some who are willing to have a normal conversation with you, whether they agree with you or not. It's more pleasant if you just focus on them and not those who go immediately to attacks, personal insults and name-calling.

    if you start right out of the 'gate' with the phrase 'pc liberals' you are showing just how much you truly want a good back & forth dialogue. lol...welcome aboard anyway.

    Thank you for your honest and colorful reply. All of my children and grandchildren are liberals so maybe at some point you could help me understand why they are always so p.....d at me?
