With the political season here, I thought maybe it was time to extend a welcome to some of the newest people in this forum: Wildo7, STFarmy, Stokes, not to mention people like fleabassist, PressCoverage and Fogbuster, who are relatively new at least in terms of being frequent posters. I'm probably leaving someone out, but it is always nice to have even more points of view here. What I think we all have in common is that we get a rush out of debating the other side, even though we know we're not going to change many minds. What I find interesting about this group is that we've always had very even numbers of conservative and liberal-leaning participants. And, I won't give names, but for every angry liberal, there's an angry conservative. We have some sort of equilibrium, even with the newest participants. Maybe that says something about our country.
