Since this section is becoming opt-in, I figured it might be beneficial to have a place where you can discuss more general politically-related topics, that may not be tied to particular current events or stories in the news.

imo disappointing that people co-opt out of politics since its such an important thing in these days but alas you can't please everyone 

Like I said in the announcement thread, I hope that people (and I believe generally they will) keep up with what's going on in the world, but sometimes you do need to escape from it for a bit.

I'm moreso speaking on general terms (albeit the thread did influence post a lot) that a lot of people abstain from politics just because its "drama" filled, when the rights of individuals are literally being revoked as we speak

Generally I agree, the problem with politics though is that if you let it consume your life too much, you'll end up so tense and stressed out that you'll just snap dead2

I mean they have no problem causing trouble over superficial things in NHB and BG dead4 They'll literally spend decades talking about Joanne and why Demi is fat.

I guess we have to be fair since a majority of this section is American politics, which doesn't really affect non-american users as much.

I wanna just make a general note in here that I've wanted to make like 10 times in various threads but just never have because it never felt right, but:

i hope y'all know that I really appreciate the perspectives that you bring to the political discussions that we have here, and if I ever come at you defensively, I don't mean to be rude or belittle your point of view. I'm just a little touchy sometimes.

OKAY THATS ALL BYE. ❤

I don't - the mood that's griped the majority of voters in that country is exactly what she plays to, I think she'll win. 

Merkel will hold on in Germany though, but it'll be severely reduced.

Absolutely not. You are foolish if you seriously believe that the "alt-right / neonazi" are just a bunch of violent crazies who want to exterminate all but the white race. This kind of ignorance (and
