I am not sure what exactly this group is about? Initially, I read all kinds of political statements by Steve the founder, about how awful war is etc. Then there is an actual discussion about the war and everything seems copasectic, until I chime in with my views about the current administration. Then sudddenly, Steve the founder says "no Bush bashing" ( which I didn't know I was doing in the first place)and suddenly he says this group is not about politics,or our individual viewpoints, but about our envirnoment and ways to solve the problems the planet faces. The interesting note to that is that I answered a post about saving money 2 days ago and there has been no action on it since. But there has been plenty of imput about freedom of speech. So again, I have mixed feelings about this group. I agree with the others who have said what makes America great is that we have the basic rigt to "agree to disagree." I am saddened when the founder Steve is not in agreement with views that oppose his own and then initiates steps to squelsh them. That is censorship and it clearly steps on all of our first amendment rights. I am not a political animal by nature, I pay my taxes and am a law biding citizen,who respects the law. But as I see our great country failing its people, I get a little scared and worried. Not so much for my husband and I, but for my children and their children. I think it is important to have civil dialogue, and disagreements about the overall state of things, where they are currently, where they are headed and what each of us as individuals can do to make this a better place to live. It is my opinion that in order to incorporate change of any sort, be it of a political or envirnomental nature there frst must be dialogue! If it is a political group then you have to listen to ALL sides, as long as it remains civil and respectful dialogue. Make up your mind Steve, you can't have this group both ways. I hope you do not take offense to this post it is not meant to be personal in any way.
