White17 suggested that we may create a forum where folks can post news of the day political articles. It is a forum where you're not to reply, just read. Let's see how it goes....

If they post it on here instead, you could have the moderators move it there very easily.

Another idea is to allow political post in a separate forum, but no user name is attached to the post. If someone identifies themselves or another forum member by name, they get the boot.

Of course moderators could know who's posting.

Great idea, just one word of caution and something I've run afoul of.

Proof any videos or articles prior to posting. While there may be good stuff being said some of the folks we read or listen to can be salty. Salty isn't allowed here whether we say it or link to it.

We need a thumbs up and down on the political forum. Like or dislike would be helpful!

Would love political forum , i need somewhere to go to for a daily laugh ,, Seen one forum politics 6mon before election and 3 months after , then none after kept the discourse more focused and still let some air their concerns

I am in favor of the political forum concept. As stated, be 100% that a subject is fact instead of hear say before posting.
In the past, i was in a position where many-many issues were sent to me. Turned out several were He said, She said - type of information.
Personally, I would not have a problem with my name being included with a post. I stand behind what I say.

My belief is here any political forum is an exercise in torture !!

Has never worked, some one is always hurt by not having their comments understood
Which always leads to some sort of they said this and other miss-aligned statements
About being something they are not !!
