I guess ATS has become AAP (A lot About Politics). I am sure other members feel the same.

I do.


Every main topic here is now AOC, Hillary, Trump, Mueller, Cohen, etc.

That shows that you, at least, know what "AOC" means, (I had to use Google to know what you're talking about) so it looks like you are at least more into politics than I am.

I can kind of get where the OP is coming from. There did used to be a wider range of conversation going on besides politics. They are still here, it just takes a little more patience to scroll down the page to find them.

My biggest problem is that political topics are being "injected" on unrelated threads, so we end up seeing members using political slurs and accusations on UFO (for example) threads.

That's what I find more depressing, as it appears to show that people now cannot think about other thing, everything must be about politics.

Off topic political posts usually get removed, that's one of the great things about ATS, the moderators can get rid of that off topic crap.

But, what if a UFO lands in a very public way and the occupants come out wearing MAGA hats?

There is no doubt that politics has become a mud slinging contest all over the world and that means it becomes interesting. That leads to more threads about them.
I am not into American politics so it can be a little jarring to see everything being about Trump or Clinton.

It's just the way it's gone. I pick and choose what I want to read and reply to. Always have.


No one can deny that the entire world is in a state of political change. And that will affect the content, surely.

If there were not so much left/right rubbish going on every day, in every way, things would be different..

No, once trump is gone in 2020 or 2024 it will switch to some other ct as the main one.

Remember the change came because a ton of trumpsters and qs came here. Just like when ats change and got super political after 911.

Once trump is gone (No mater how it happens.) They will have no steam left and fade away.

Yes we now have quantity and sensationalism over quality. Guess we all got to survive.

That is a bit of a socialist thing to say.

I'm not talking about that, I'm talking about political expressions used inside on topic posts, like people saying that only left wing supporters/right wing supporters would support some scientific theory.

If it happens, no problem.

That's part of the problem, as this is more of an US problem than a world problem, outside the US we don't see such a division between political sides on the common population.

Politics has consumed the life of everyone around me as well, it's pretty depressing, so many sheep.


I remember a time when no one cared at all and we complained about that too.

Called them all sheep over it.

Now that people are paying attention, even a little bit, it's all depressing and they're all sheep.

no, that is true.. However, it affects other countries in many ways. Especially countries that are allied to the US, and.. then we have the msm here also, saturated with the leftist bent that grates on the nerves.

I'd love nothing more than to see more real meat stuff.. but if it's not secureteam10, then it's some dude holding a manufactured big foot head (or is that just big head?) or something terrible like venus floating by.. :/

I am so jaded these days..

However, with those things, I do not ever wish them to stop. A clock can be broken, but it is right, twice a day !!

Perhaps the "debunkers" were a bit too authoritarian and too often over prescribed treatment and medication.

Whoever is #-in with our lives the most, gets talked about the most. Politicians and their 'ideas' have only one goal in mind - to determine the extent of government control over the conduct of humans.

They drew the short straw therefore, instinct and logic dictates that they will be the main focus surrounding the direction society(s) go.

So just like FB, twitter, instagram, CNN, MSNBC, Buzzkill, ESPN, childrens cartoons etc - ATS will also bring to the forefront anything that effects government control of our personal conduct, or when politicians do and say stupid things.

False.

I would link the many that are not but I make no excuses for your ignorance.

Seek and ye shall find...


The most popular topics are on the front page. Of 35, 23 of them are political.


So what you're saying is that if it wasn't for political threads, there would only be twelve on the front page?
