Its my intention to make this forum fair, and in order to do that I welcome users to get together and form groups to pursue whatever they wish. Form factions, unions, clubs, societies, it doesn't matter to me.

Just follow the rules, and if you have suggestions on new rules, or changes to existing rules or changes to the site, you may discuss them here.

I am a 20 year old college student, a registered member of the Modern Whig party, a political moderate, a first generation Italian American. And I consider myself a roman and a stoic, with some other philosophical inclinations ranging from cynicism to Epicureanism.

List of political beliefs are essentially liberal conservative. That is socially liberal and fiscally conservative. I'm pro civil rights, pro individual liberty, anti corruption, I favor low taxes, and balanced budgets. I believe in the separation of church and state, I am ok with welfare and social programs provided that they are cost effective, and my foreign policy position is essentially that of Theodore Roosevelt.

"It is not true that the United States feels any land hunger... as regards the other nations of the Western Hemisphere save such as are for their welfare.  All that this country desires  is to see the neighboring countries stable, orderly, and prosperous.  Any country whose people conduct themselves well can count upon our hearty friendship.  If a nation shows that it knows how to act with reasonable efficiency and decency in social and political matters, if it keeps order and pays its obligations, it need fear no interference from the United States.  Chronic wrongdoing, or an impotence which results in a general loosening of the ties of civilized society [however], may in America, as elsewhere, ultimately require intervention by some civilized nation, and in the Western Hemisphere the adherence of the United States to the Monroe Doctrine may force the United States, however reluctantly, in flagrant cases of such wrongdoing or impotence, to the exercise of an international police power.... While [our Southern neighbors] obey the primary laws of civilized society they may rest assured that they will be treated by us in a spirit of cordial and helpful sympathy.... It is a mere truism to say that every nation, whether in America or anywhere else, which desires to maintain its freedom, its independence, must ultimately realize that the right of such independence can not be separated from the responsibility of making good use of it." Theodore Roosevelt, The Roosevelt Corollary (1904)

I grew up in Chelsea MA, and I am a full time college student, receiving some financial aid, and living off of my savings, which I had accumulated from work I did part time in high school, and with help from my parents. I have a black white and brown Australian shepherd named Sirius, he's 9 years old.

I enjoy cooking, gardening, arguing, and working. Currently my work, is college, hence full time, I am also doing a lot of work on my house currently.

I got sick of using other forums, so I decided to make my own. For anyone remotely like me this will be paradise on earth. So enjoy, tell your friends, make them tell their friends, hell tell people you don't even like!

Rules / The class system
« on: April 16, 2009, 05:00:14 pm »
Unlike most forums ranks here are not dependent on how often you post or how long you are online... Ranks are given, by me. And will be decided by popular vote of the groups who have the privilege of voting.

So, in other words, its a meritocracy. If you are well liked and post well you will get a high rank, if you are annoying you will stay on a low rank, or get banned in extreme cases.

The classes are

1. Servi (slave)

You have the ability to post but only after having them approved.

2. Liberti (Freedman)

You have the ability to post but only after having them approved, and have some limited abilities.

3. Plebeians (commoners)

You have the ability to post, and have most normal user abilities.

4. Equites (the middle class)

You have the ability to post, and have some limited mod abilities, (in regards to your profile and posts)

5. Patricians (The nobility)

You have the ability to post everywhere except in places for common fok, but why would you want to associate with them... right? Anyway you have mod abilities in your own topics, and mod abilities for your posts and profile. You can't touch other peoples topics, or their profiles however.

6. Censura (mods)

They are everywhere and they can do almost anything, except of course things that only I can do.

7. Lictors (sub mods)
They are everywhere and can lock, split, and move topics, they cannot edit or delete posts or threads. Nor can they ban users

8. Dictator perpetuo (the admin, me) I have the power of life and death over everything and everyone. And I can do whatever I want.

Rules / My rules
« on: April 16, 2009, 04:39:38 pm »
1. No libel, (written statements about a person that are insulting and untrue.)
2. No fighting words, (statements that incite violence persons, or groups of people)
3. Try to keep things reasonably civil, if there is a problem bring it the court.
4.The topics are fairly well defined, don't post in the wrong section.
5. If you would like a new section request it in the appropriate section.
