The best goddam political discussion board I am aware of. [View all]

Seriously, there is no real time better news/analysis then what happens at DU. Been here since WTF Happened in FL in 2000. Some really smart people post here and my hat is off to the best progressive US board on the internet. DU has been the place to be during the entire election process.....as it has always been. I always would prefer listening to brief points by a bunch of great posters than a TLDR opus from a hack that is no smarter the rest of us. I get the real story when I read 50 different opinions on any latest news event as it happens.

My goto sanity and real time group therapy site for 20 years (and it's free).....but you contribute because you appreciate this internet oasis that DU is.

Best regards, admins!

On edit: Blown away by the responses. Thanks all. We all get it. DU is a resource worth supporting!
