    Bruh I’m just a white 28 year old millennial from Brentwood, Tennessee. Y’all are overthinking this

    Why would he need to be banned? This is pretty tame as far as politics on the internet goes as far as I can tell. Also, thats a long con with his account being from 2011. I’m not here defending his positions, but I don’t see the point of having a political forum on here and expecting everyone to agree and play nice all the time.

    IP It's just business.

    I just don't see it as something that is tolerable.

    No because that all night long conversation did conclude with you taking your ball and going home by you banning me and then immediately calling for a vote to end the political forum here. I’m not taking credit nor would I ever want credit for you loathing being a moderator here that is sick of fooling with political talk. You publicly announced to everyone your disdain for even having the responsibility to keep this site going and openly wished that you could leave this site for good. You can think that I think it was about me all you want, makes no difference to me

    Because Float apparently is a paranoid tyrant with how he runs this ship. VolNation would be proud of his moderating philosophy

    Who does? Slavery sucks. It’s the worst. I hate slavery just as much as you. Not sure what that has to do with the constitution as it stands in 2021

    I’d say you’re both being [Richards] in your own special ways

    IP It's just business.

    It has to do with being clear about the nation's origins. We can become what we claim to be, but we can't be that if we can't be honest about history. You'll notice Indy threw in some random comment about Native Americans and war, as if there is any justification to genocide. When the mantra is "make America great again" it isn't aspiring to anything new or better but rather to go backwards to a point in time when America was allegedly great. But if you look back with a critical eye, when exactly was that and for who? It wasn't great for the ancestors of now nearly half of Americans. And the message itself is regressive. What may have been effective or good then would not be now or in the future. The world changes, and whether we wish to acknowledge it or not America is inextricably part of and affected by global civilization as much as vice versa. There is a larger cycle of American isolation and adventurism that is avoidable with a clear-eyed understanding that the world is round. But talking like that is called "globalism" and denigrated, despite, you know, it being an observation of history and reality.

    There is a strong push to bury any kind of critical analysis of American history because it lays bare that pattern. We ought to revere democracy and liberty the way we revere our economic system. The tail has been wagging the dog all along. It is why slavery persisted, why we have done much of what we have overseas, and why we always have to find new "others" within our own society to blame for the domestic repercussions for the non-ruling classes. Small towns dying and the American dream unattainable for young adults? Better talk about restricting bathrooms.

    Because he's a child, who does not contribute to discussion, but instead generates loads of pointless posts, reposts and moving points. And though while others may have a higher tolerance for it today, that is unlikely to be true forever. If you look at posting, on just this, the guy has been at it non stop, at all hours of the night and day. 1 am. 7 am. That's some devotion. For a guy who has been here a long time, but hasn't had a lot of post volume. It's abnormal.

    Typically, that specific type of abnormal doesn't hold up well.

    If that were true, you'd be banned, and it would be irreversible.

    Nope. I banned you because you're a troll. I didn't call for a vote to end anything. It isn't me who thinks this, it is you, as you have stated such, when you said: "That discussion alone somehow literally resulted in a vote to end the political forum here the next morning."

    This is false, and you continue to parrot it. That discussion alone had nothing to do with anything. What caused that vote is that since about 2016, this forum has been slowly reducing membership, as some believe, due to politics. That wasn't the first time closing politics has come up. It won't be the last. The discussion that immediately precedes that next discussion on closing politics won't be any more impactful to it, than that one was.

    My desire to leave this board has been semi-known since 2016. It'll happen this year. It won't be because of you sport.

    Feel free to ask around. PM zehr. PM Card. PM Norris. PM VolDad. You don't have to take my word on it, you can get some insight on it from others.

    Not necessary. Your site, your online playground. Your burden of both running this site and feeling the need to continually engage with someone you deem a child on a politics forum.

    Poor you. Voluntarily being subjected to the tyranny of someone who isn't banning nor restricting you in any way. You poor, tortured soul. You have everyone's sympathy.

    This is not my site man. I also don't run this place. I don't and haven't been a "super mod" or anything, for years. I'm the only person, today, who fixes it when it breaks. That's it. Why you must constantly make incorrect statements? What causes you to just make up things? How about let's try this as an exercise for you... if you aren't certain about this place, or the posters, don't make statements? Let's see how that works for you, if you give it a try.

    I agree with many of the problems you identified facing our country, I just fail to see how one can’t compartmentalize the shortcomings of our history while at the same time being grateful that we have it good here in 2021 America when you consider the fortunes of of most humans to have ever lived in human existence. Being a glass half full guy about America and the history it represents does not mean one doesn’t adequately acknowledge, understand and empathize with the struggles others have and continue to face in America. Taking pride in America becoming the most racially, culturally, and religiously diverse society isn’t some sort of endorsement yearning to isolate ourselves from seizing to become a more perfect Union at the expense of the rest of the world. It certainly has nothing to do with Donald Trump’s campaign slogan. Nothing wrong with being a proud and appreciative American

    You literally said this site depends on your existence and that despite your desire to leave this place, you can’t because you don’t want to ruin it for everyone else. So many lies you tell
