8. Welcome to DU! I appreciate you sharing your thoughts with little ol' me on your very first post!

First, about the TOS here: Ooooh, doggies. I've run afoul a few times myself, always on accident. It bruises your ego for a minute if you let it, but smack it off and don't do it again and move on (but try to learn em and be respectful as you can). Note: This is important, if you aren't a Democrat you don't belong here. (re: your blind party loyalty comment). On the other hand, you also may have pointed out to me that the real center of gravity in this whole deal at the moment is the middle of America, which includes some disaffected Republicans, my friend, in which case perhaps inertia is on our side.

More about DU, from my perspective anyway is, it being the internet and all, that we can from time to time have sharp elbows, either accidentally or on purpose. I try not to get into too much interpersonal sparring, but some here delight in it...(probably trolls and such, but we dispatch with them pretty quickly, usually).

And your last comment told the real tale of it all, anyway: the money. We have to get the money out of politics. On that, anyway, I agree.
