I think people should be able to discuss issues that impact us globally. In fact, I think a forum full of "smart" people are ideal to come together and work on ways to improve the world. I dislike the name "politics" because of the connotation. However, I do like the idea of discussing candidates and their philosophies.
There would have to be some heavy moderating and at the very first signs of personal attacks, name calling and the like, action would need to be swift and decisive.
Just as we all have different opinions on health, the law of attraction, psychic and paranormal things, etc, we're going to disagree about politics. Doesn't mean we can't engage in healthy discussion without resorting to name calling or other degenerative behavior.
What about a 30 day trial of a political forum with some strict guidelines and if it gets out of control and the mods can't bring everyone back into alignment then we shut it down.
