That's exactly why the section should never exist here. Even those who don't want it and don't want to participate will be sucked in like black hole.
Thank you! That is all

It's not just the left media, bud. The right does it too. I'm not defending either, since I do consider myself a leaner towards the right, I'm just saying that I do see some brain washing on both sides.

I agree with many of the other points brought up Political sections essentially become a flame war section. So no, not going to happen.

After reading all of the answers , I firs voted yes to have it , but I can see now that it may have been the wrong choice . Politics are a tough subject and can cause a lot of heartache . I love this site for technical discussions , new products , even some really good personal stories too .
Have to vote no ... Although I love a good discussion as well ....

originally voted yes bc its fun to occasionally ruffle peoples feathers..

past history has proven that its not a good idea for me to do that on here though, as i'm not particularly fond of getting banned or recieving infractions. I've been fairly well behaved lately and intend to keep it that way.lol

so now i say no-go
