As I said this last weekend, we are going to see more and more heated debates here at our Forum as the elections come and go. The Moderators request that you all exercise judgment and restraint and donít over react to expected responses to events. We, the Moderators, will not be baited into over-heavy moderation that will only force members away. We take all reported posts seriously and spend considerable time debating the merits, or lack thereof, of every report. It is a thankless task, I assure you.

As I said before, whether we like it or not, we are all in this mess together, and we will only get out of it by coming together to solve our critical problems as a nation.

I suggest for the sensitive members to consider the ignore feature for the duration of the election and post-election cycle. Once the smoke clears it will be safe again to participate fully in our Forum.

The Moderators wish to keep members of all political affiliations and we appreciate your efforts in these difficult times. Peace.

Thank you Chris,

The message is not only timely but well written as well.

I would like to add that it may be wise when tempted, and we will be deliberately, we step away from the computer before hitting the reply button.

Ignore is the best tool on this forum and remember, there are those who are only here to get a rise out of people and get them in trouble.

Please have a read of the rules and guidelines and also remember, we have an audience. At any one time there are at least as many non members watching as there are members posting.

Well-said and excellent advice, my friend.

Someones going to win if we like the person or not. All we can do is our part and hope our vote counts. Worrying about things never solves anything. Like I told one poster that is no longer here, "I only get one vote".

Rioting and looting threats are still coming quite strongly. Read the comments.

I don't know who they aim to shoot to kill but i would suggest that conservatives stay on your own property to protect it.

Will do, but I have an ex-police officer and army trained here that stays with us, four over 20 somethings and I too was raised on guns. Security system and dogs. This may be the last place they want to show their heads.

This is the reason I turned down the offer of a Romney lawn sign in my yard. People have just gotten too crazy about their politics....who I support and vote for will remain my own business. I got 9, count them, NINE, political calls yesterday, including one each from Michelle and Ann. No wonder people are stirred into a frenzy....by 10 p.m. last night, I was ready to shoot someone myself.

Wow. But you are from Ohio, where the election is said to be decided. Normally Republicans don't put too much stock in Wisconsin, but for a change we're getting a small taste of what it's like to be a battleground state. Even that's bad so I shudder to think how bad it is in Ohio right now.

I get automated calls for money from the Obama camp and they have no idea they are calling Canada. I sometimes keep pressing the numbers...to keep them the automated call going thinking its costing them....

Lawn signs are stupid anyway...and the way things are going, it's getting way too tense.

Well if I had bought a lawn sign I would put it up. Did wear a sticker at the fair but it was free. I don't worry about who likes it or not.

Oh yea, I wear the daughters of the confederate sticker too. If people are stupid enough to think they are racist more power to them.

I don't give my phone number out to anyone. While I know there are random number generators, I don't answer my phone if I don't recognize the number, so it never scores a hit. Plus the US has a "do not call" list that works great.

So I don't get those calls.

Like the internet, the phone system is purposely unrestricted where just about anyone can violate your privacy at any time.

No they are not racist. Nor is Obama a Muslim or a socialist.

It's all the witless pettiness of political opposition.

No, Obama has declared himself a social democrat, and that's a form of socialist.

Then GW was a socialist since he was a social conservative.

Paint covers a lot of surface area when using a broad brush.

True that--I called him a socialist con back then. Keep in mind the key attribute of socialism is central planning.
