WELCOME TO RO! First off, just want to start off by saying its nice to see a younger member of this board. It is a good thing for young men and women to break away from time to time from popular culture and try to focus on the bigger issues and the current events of the world. I think that, with just entering college and my high opinion on the importance of education, this board will be a benefit to you. Though you will meet a lot of arguments and at times emotions may get heated, there are a lot of opportunities for really insightful debates. The board is not a singular political ideology. We have members that range from the far right variety, to the religious right, Conservative, Constitutionalists, RINO, Moderates, Libertarians, and even a few Liberals. Can’t say for certain that we have any Far Left members, but I will say that term has been used on more than one occasion on more than one member at one point or another.
As for Colleges, I don’t know where you from by I am a graduate of Florida State University (GO NOLES!) and I highly recommend it. Good school AND a lot of fun.
