Hello all. I admit I've been a long time lurker so maybe it's time to become a member.

I'm a middle aged college student who has just finished my Junior year. My major is History/Political Science, with the minor in Soc. I've also taken several law classes because I felt it wouldn't hurt to know a bit about that subject. I received my Assoc. in history last year.

For a long time my hobby has been researching genealogy (especially royal bloodlines), which puts one in touch with a large amount of history. I've enjoyed it and had developed quite a knack for it, so one day I decided that I might as well get some credit if I was going to be doing it anyway.

I'm glad that the degree plan includes political science as I'm a confessed political junkie. I just can't help it, especially with the amount of devolving that is happening in our country right now.

While I am aware that it is the victor who writes the history, I'm also aware that doesn't always mean that it was the truth, or at least not the whole truth. I tend to look for what wasn't said.

ATS has a good many topics that I find interesting.

Sounds like you'd fit perfectly here, shadow. Once you get past all the dodgy threads, there's some good stuff.
Of course, as you're a self-stated political junkie, perhaps PTS would tickle your fancy a bit more?
