    While I'm not trying to bring on the wrath of the moderators, and I'm the first person to be AGAINST a government-run healthcare system, where do we draw the line on how much of what is going on in our political system (insert heathcare issue) is allowed in this section of the forum?

    Wherever Eric says the line is... is the line.

    Maybe it wouldn't hurt to consolidate some of the threads though. We have about 12 going on the exact same subject right now.

    Agreed. However, I see "the line" starting to move into uncharted waters..

    That's normal for a stupidly high profile issue. Ignore it and give it a couple days, it'll be back to normal with only one or two running after that.

    Yeah, I guess that was a real test of sorts.

    I am going to hazard a guess here and say the mods and Eric don't mind these kinds of postings here UNTIL they become over the top political bashing and/or violate some of the TOS rules like attacking other posters and name calling. That was the reason the other post on this subject was closed.
