Hi, I am new to this forum, though I was browsing it last night and have run across it before on the net. The reason I joined was, even though I'm not really a hippie, I really liked your politics forum. Although now I find out its for members only. I'll just have to get a 100 post first. In case youre wondering about my poltical affliation, I do not consider myself a member of any party and I am an avid Nader supporter though I would be willing to vote for the democrats next election (first time I'll be voting ) if they nominate a decent candidate (someone like Dean, but I doubt they'll ever nominate a decent candidate).
