This is a Community for the polite debate and discussion of the upcoming 2008 Elections and the issues surrounding those elections. Everyone is encouraged to participate; though vulgarities, spamming, trolling, and uncivilized attacks will not be tolerated.
Post whatever you want about politicians, policy, events, etc. Do not post blanket ugliness and insults about republicans, democrats, green parties, etc. . .

Be respectful to each other please. No personal attacks about each other's character or intelligence. There are a ton of other communities out there for people that want that.
If you want to make blanket insulting comments (as I occasionally want to myself) hook yourself up with a like minded community.

Some Rules. Follow them.


1) No off-topic posts. If it's not in some way, shape, or form related to government or politics, it's off-topic. Thats pretty broad so you've got little excuse for running afoul of this one. (I stole this from politicsforum
2) Don't be a racist prick.
3) Don't link to your or anyone's private journals or threads on other communities.
4) If you are posting or pasting a link or news story, have some commentary to go with it. You are not the only one that reads the news. We can find it just as easily as you do.
5) Do not disable comments in one of your posts. Do not delete comments that you make. If you say something stupid, suck it up and take the shame. Only the moderators may delete comments or posts. You will be banned and mocked for breaking this rule.
6) We look for trolls. Occasionally one gets by. We are not interested in sad little sock puppet accounts either. Grow a set and join with your real account.
7) Please use a cut if you are posting something long or graphics heavy.

A Cherokee Fable
A Cherokee Indian elder was teaching his grandchildren about life.
He said to them, “A fight is going on inside me... it is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
This same fight is going on inside of you, and inside every other person, too.”
The children thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather,
”Which wolf will win?”
The Cherokee elder replied simply ...

”The one you feed.”
