I just went back 3 or 4 pages and saw that the same 6 or 7 people post anti-Republican/anti-Tea Party/anti-conservative threads (with obviously biased titles) and there are 5 or 6 people on the other side who do the exact same thing with Democrat/Liberal/Progressive threads.

The overwhelming majority of these threads are copy and pasted links to articles found on admittedly biased websites or blogs, most people tend to use the same source over and over again BTW. It just seems like such a huge waste of time if you look at the overall energy that goes into this.

Has anything you've read here changed your mind causing you to switch your voting position from Democrat to Republican or the other way around?

I'm 75 and I'm way too "set in my ways" to be influenced by anything I read here.

I changed my opinion on DADT after a topic on here that led to a conversation with an Admiral friend of mine.
I suppose that is not really a vote but it is a position that influences my vote
