What does DU mean to you?
For me it's a place to come and read a liberal point of view that, more often than not, coincides with my beliefs.

4. A place of kindred spirits ...
For political discourse, rants and raves etc.... LBN is my daily source of news. The Lounge when ... I need a break from politics but still want to be with like minded souls. The humor and intellect of many of the posts is a great escape. The best ....

7. It means so much!
When Shrub got in I literally shook and cried for a couple of days. I was so scared. I knew immediately that we were going to Iraq. I said that gas prices would skyrocket. I was scared that his stupidity would cause WWIII.
Now jump ahead a few years. Only a couple of months ago, I started looking for a liberal radio station. I always heard Rush on the radio and thought there had to be a liberal station. Found this site and it is my life line.
My God!! I'm not nuts!! I was really worried that I was paranoid.

9. And yet there are enough brains & different viewpoints here that
it is an intellectually stimulating environment. If you seek debate, it is a place where you can have your beliefs challenged by people who are usually respectful & intelligent about doing so.

11. sanity and the truth
when the Iraq war was being marketed, I really felt like "Democracy Now" was the only media outlet which said the truth about the reasons for our inevitable invasion.

Here in Georgia, nobody I talked to knew the truth. They believed all of Bush's insane lies and his christian rhetoric. Most of them still do.

Thank God I found DU.

16. It's a social network of like-minded people,
a place to learn new or differing progressive points of view, a chance to make connections and find opportunity to volunteer for campaigns and causes.
