First of all, welcome to the site! The best thing you can possibly ever do as a new user is read the NEW USER READ ME guide in the Debate.org forum, it's stickied. If you have any questions but anything, you can just PM me too and Id be more than happy to help you.

I see. That's cool. :)
Either way, it's good to have you. Hopefully you'll have a good time browsing the politics forum, too. Most of it is election-based, which tends to become monotonous. However, there are still some great OPs of other topics, too. You should check out my thread on Technology and Labor. :)
