I have an Idea

How I feel about it all: curiouscurious
Soundtrack: Sweet Honey in the Rock - Would You Harbour Me
In light of recent events (gods, I feel like I'm writing the Declaration of Independence or something), I was wondering:

Would anyone be interested in a fandom political discussion community? Since I believe the key to understanding each other is respectful dialogue, I thought it would be a good idea to provide a space for such.

Flames or personal insults wouldn't be allowed in the community I have in mind, although emphatic discussion would be encouraged. It'd be a safe place for people to come and discuss what they believe, who they support, and why. All sides, parties, wings, and opinions welcome.

So, how about it? If I get even a few people interested, I'll go and start the community. Even four or five would be fine. I just don't want to be sitting there talking to myself (I'd get really bored really fast).

Hmmm... sounds like something I could get involved in. :)

This is a brilliant idea! The amount of political traffic on my flist agrees.

Yay! I'm not on my own computer right now, but as soon as I am, I'll start it.

I had a similar idea a while back, but was too lazy to implement it. :D Go ahead!

I'd definitely like to be a part of a group like this, at least insofar as I have time. So far I've really sucked at keeping up-to-date on news and events, and I'd love to go into the next election feeling like I have some tiny bit of knowledge about who the hell I'm voting for (not that I haven't already made up my mind on that score....).

I'll be setting it up in the next couple of days. I've been away a lot this weekend. :D
