We can't escape politics - we know that. It touches our lives every day, hour, and minute. But discussing national politics in a local forum takes away from the purpose of even having a locally-focused forum.

There's been a great many discussions back and forth that, while they had opinions being voiced by Blairsville-connected individuals, aren't really about Blairsville, or Union County. It doesn't help that the end result from all of this passionate posting is that nobody changed their minds on their stance.

We'd like to keep the conversations going on here to those directly tied to Blairsville and Union County. It distorts the usefulness of this board to allow it to be a political battleground for ideology and national issues. There are many other places to debate national politics. Another forum of note that may be of interest is http://www.itsallpolitics.com/ .

We've locked the topics that are the biggest examples of what we're referring to. Let's leave those where they lay and not resurrect them. And let's focus more on issues closer to home, where national party affiliation isn't a particularly good indicator of whether someone can do the job or not.

Gee, every time I put up a post and hit "Post New Reply", a sign pops up saying . . .

"Thank you for your contribution."

And to think, Admin, that I took you at your word!
