Political Battle of the Drug Boards ( Shroomery represent!)
    #2941012 - 07/29/04 04:35 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Ok how about a little fun. This idea might not take off, but i figure, I'd offer it up as a suggestion.

I've noticed three drug boards have some very active Politic boards. So i suggest a friendly competition of sorts.
There will be members from Shroomery, Overgrow, and Bluelight to participate in this.

Ten topics will be drawn up about current events, and various controversial topics.

You will register at the temporary board as your current name is now. Except now you will add two Initials to it.
For instance.. If your name is "DrugAddict" and you're on Shroomery, you're name will be "DrugAddict_SH".
BL for bluelight
SH for Shroomery
OG for Overgrow

Also, avatars should match up as well. There will be supplied avatars representing each board. Here:




This doesn't necessarily mean the topics will be a "team effort". I've noticed each board has it's own atmostphere of politics.
Overgrow seems to be very liberal. Bluelight, might be more liberal than not, but has a nice sized right and left population.
Shroomery, has a pretty large libertarian following. So i'm suggesting 10 discussions, to shed new light, with new faces, on some topics.
Maybe people will recieve a new perspective on things, instead of the same old rhetoric from the same old familiar faces.

The topics will be

1) Should gay marriage be legal?
2) Libertarian philosophy -- Salvation or Lunacy?
3) Should religion be a part of government?
4) Does the media have a left or right wing bias?
5) America, the humanitarian or war mongering country?
6) How would you solve the Isreal / Palenstinian Conflict?
7) Iraq? Should we stay or should we go?
8) Abortion = Freedom or Murder?
9) Bush,Kerry, Nadar, or Badnarik-- Why?
10) Has Affirmative Action worn out it's welcome?

and since these are drug boards... I'll throw an 11th out there.

11) How would you like to see drugs legalized?

Here's the board:

interesting idea, i registered, wonder if it will catch on. If it does catch on at all, it'd be a good sticky thread, though I guess it draws people away from the shroomery and their advertisers so it wouldn't be made one (?).

Tao Te Ching.. it'll just be  some temporary fun.  So i don't think it'll really detract from Shroomery.

Bleak..  feel free to start those three threads :smile:
