    I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

    I think even a link to that type of forum could get you censured here.

    I will, however, give you a link to a game. It is a government simulation and politically neutral. They have an affiliated forum collection which does include a 'free topic' area.

    www.nationstates.net

    The server is usually pretty choked up at night.

    I know a bad political forum, does that count?

    The Fray over at Slate is full of the worst sort of vitriol, bile and unsupported arguments I've ever seen. There are rare posts there that are well thought out and nicely written, but you generally have to dig through a lot of crap to find those gems (sticking to star posts helps).

    Shawn on the post titled "President to announce maned Moon/Marstrip"
    I replyed "He must think there is Oil on the Moon/Mars"

    I got a "POLITICAL COMMENT REMOVED BY ADMIN."

    I take it that it was a young Moderater
    as the forum is After Hours and would think all views are listen to as long as no cussing or slander.

    Anyhoo.. here is a good Military Forum that gives good views on both sides of the coin. It gives both sides of the war and politics.

    Are you sure? One would think, since politics isn't discussed here at HTF, that the admins/mods would be happy for members to provide links to take that type of discussion somewhere else.

    In order to suggest the right political forum, we need to know your political leanings. Are you:

    a) a right-winger
    b) a left-winger
    c) a chicken-winger

    This is important!
