During the last presedential election I was mob-attacked for saying I was voting for Obama. I had no idea how many conservative republicans were at this website. And I noticed that many of them stayed in the Debate Forums , and rarely saw them in the support areas.
Perhaps what is need is a "non-debate" forum that has left leanings and one that has right leaning. That way the left-ist forum could freely talk about Move On and other liberal views without fear. The right-ist forum can bow to Limbaugh and do whatever they do.
You will never be able to have a political forum that mixes the two. Either it will be "debate" or it will be "support" but the animals all need to be the same breed.
