Now, I know this could be an incredible point of contention for several people concerning the political climate at the moment, but this thread is here to create a reasonable and respectful discussion on all the political news around the world. As such all future discussion pertaining to Worldwide politics will be moved here if created into a new thread. Before we begin, I would like to lay down some ground rules:

  • Remain respectful and civil. I will be completely strict with this and will hand out warnings and infractions for breaking this cardinal rule. It is alright to have a heated debate, but do not lower yourself to denigration and personal attacks. Attack the views, not the person behind the views. If things become too heated, I will make my presence known.
  • Let us not fall victim to gross generalization about an entire party either. No, the Republican Party is not an entire nation of old, rich, white racists, and no, the Democratic Party is not a bunch of hippie socialist snowflakes. Check that mindset at the door.
  • Finally, if you believe you cannot control your emotions, it is best if you take a break and leave the thread until you feel you are better able to control yourself. It is needless to say, that past experiences have brought on this piece of advice. Sometimes it is better to step away than burn your bridge here permanently by saying something you might regret.

With that said, let the discord and debates begin.​

I probably won't be participating much bc from past experience political threads have just been terrible on other wrestling forums I've been on but I do keep up with current politics a lot so i might drop in.

As far as my political opinions, I consider myself a left leaning independent but I believe the current Republican party is horribly corrupt, Democrats aren't great at all but a "both sides" argument falls real flat for me when I see the shit going on right now. Federally I've voted democrat exclusively the last few years for this reason but when it comes to state and local where politics aren't as much or a shit show, I vote for plenty of Republicans that I believe are a better candidate and haven't got sucked into the party rhetoric

Pretty much sums me up as well.

Since I'm the creator of the thread, I've taken the liberty of intentionally keeping myself away from commenting my own viewpoints in the interest of fairness and to act as an impartial mediator of sorts. Sorry, not sorry.

Oh i read the title wrong, I though it was politics on this site. I was ready to bring up how a certain owner refused to mod deezy even though he was carrying the live threads for month and modded a new guy off the intro.














But that's none of my business.

Nevermind.

I've made the offer to Deezy if he wanted it a few times, he said he wasn't interested.



I'd like to bang AOC.
As would I, Deezy. As would I. Crazy bug eyes and all.

That and the fact they tend to be more health conscious on the left, instead of dining on burgers all day like Chris Christie and Trump. :p
