Exclamation Political Threads?

I'm going to be straight forward about this. I'm tired of all the political threads on this site. I understand there is an election going on but when I turn on the t.v., radio, or just talk to anybody that's all I ever hear about. Doesn't anybody want to talk or read about something else for a change? I'm also sick of these people that post all this political crap. Stating their personal views (which is fine) but is more or less to start an online fight, seriously get a life or make a friend. It would be nice if powerstroke.org would get back to talking more about trucks and diesel than people's personal political views.

there are plenty of non-political threads. Just don't read the ones in the political forum. Even if you are on the home page you can tell by the subject if it is political, so just don't open it

I'm not talking about the political forum I'm just saying in general that's all.

If you pay attention, the political jargon is in the POLITICAL FORUM. There isn't any political talk under "urgent 911"

What's with the defensiveness, Adrian? He's entitled to his opinion and posted the poll to ask how other feel. No need to bash.

The more the better, its also a form of education.

You will find more facts here than any news station. Yea people are biased but for the most part the facts are here and if they arent facts someone exposes it.

As stated above, pass over them if your arent interested. Lots of crap on this forum I ignore. Its just like your remote, you dont like it, flip on past it.
