About Me:I am a nice and kind person who likes to get into issues of politics and so on. So I found this debate.org site and really like it. I found it when I was researching how great Richard Nixon was because we all know that and that is how I found debate.org. Nothing much you need to know about me, but I excel in history class and have gained a great interest in several subjects. I guess the question is if my vast knowledge in history can help me in debates It is a terrific site and I hope I have some jolly fun here! PS: I tend to lean more conservative than liberal. I would like to become a politician, possibly a governor for my state.
