You should understand one thing.... I doubt most of the political complaining is against republicans. Well, it is.. and for good reason..... The
reason is... They have the presidency. If Bush wins, he will be on the chopping block for 4 more years. If Kerry wins, then it is the republican
turn to put him on the chopping block. Don`t take it personal, it will be just whomever is in charge.
Now, think about this as well. What are the two things that will get people fighting and complaining within minutes? Religion and Politics. They are
also the two hardest to get a black and white picture on them. I usually stay out of those forums myself, because of this.
But, you are complaining about ATS... Have you looked at many of the Science Posts? There is allot of good and researched information. Have you read
the research forums? Again..... Check out many of the threads.
If you only stick to politics, then that is what you will get. Coulda, woulda, shoulda. The politician lie outright to get voted it, they make the
policies to benefit themselves and friends. They put money to line their friends pockets for favors later. This is ALL sides and yes, this IS THE
REAL WORLD. Now, the policies that actually benefit people... hmm... even the professionals in their respective field give different spins on
everything. There will also be the doubt of what if....
So, if Bush wins you can be happy, but cry about how unfair the site is to the Republicans, but if Kerry wins, the you will be sad, but you will have
a fun time for the next 4 years bashing his policies. Either way you can be happy and sad..... ha ha
Have you seen the campaign forum? Most everything in there is researched. Take a look around, there is something for everyone.
Good luck and welcome.
