This thread is for the civilized discussion of all things relating to politics... the war in Iraq, the current state of things, various political issues, etc.
Keep all election discussion to the "Barack Obama or John McCain" thread, and once the election is over it will be merged into this thread.
As aforementioned, please keep discussion civilized. Try to remember:
1) People are entitled to their opinion
2) Avoid Ad Hominem remarks.
3) War is a hard subject to talk about for some people
If the discussion gets too heated or resorts to any sort of name calling, thread bans will be handed out to those deserving, and the thread might be closed.
