There are a lot of those kinds of people on this board, and I like it well enough to tolerate the occasional one who goes off on a pointless rant.

I like that this forum is, in general, full of helpful advice and respectful conversation and populated by people who are trying to support one another in health and well-being. I think a political issues forum (maybe as a replacement and expansion of the global warming forum?) would allow a special place for discussions that might otherwise show up in The Lounge. Not everyone appreciates the presence there of more controversial political issues, but other folks are of the opinion that politics is caught up in all things, even the simplest daily life choices we make at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
