Hello, welcome to Political Debating Moms (PDM)

My name is Dana, I'm 33, married and we have one son, Ethan. I love politics, I love my country (I'm from the US), I love debating and learning about other people's views. I'm an avid reader of ALL kinds of books. I also would call myself more of a Democrat but I vote on both sides of the aisle. I like to make up my own mind about a candidate, not listen to someone else tell me what I should think or believe.

Hi, I'm Barb and I have two sons, 2 1/2 and 5 months. I used to be a professional tiger trainer, but now I am a stay at home momma. My husband is a grad student in printmaking, and we hope to someday make our living making art and fostering art in our community.
I would have to say I am pretty liberal, but I don't want to align myself with one party. I think they are both pretty confused, honestly. I love to have intelligent debates, as I don't get to do so very much at home with my little boys! This group and Debating Mums fills that need nicely, and I appreciate it!

Hi I'm Jakki. I've been hanging around COM for about 18 months and still feel guilty when my kids/hubby catch me doing it - like having a smoke in the garden!



I'm Australian and a bit of a leftie (nb in Australia the word "liberal" usually refers to the conservative party, so it's a bit confusing to us to hear your US-based debates).



I've been a leftie since I was a child and got very pro-feminism and anti-injustice from age 10 or so.



One of my early politically forming events was a trip I did to Central America (Nicaragua) in 1988. I wanted to find out for myself what was going on with Ronald Reagan's policies to support an insurgency movement against the elected leftist government. In other words, he paid for terrorists to blow up primary schools and medical clinics. This kind of thing drove me crazy and the fact that many people didn't know what was going on there really upset me. I spent a few years being quite active in movements to raise public awareness on that issue.



After a while I became more involved in environmental activism and then got work in environmental groups. Now I've been working in the state EPA for many years and it pays the bills.



Oh yeah - more importantly than all that, I'm a mum to three lovely kids 6, 9 ands 11.



Looking forward to throwing in my penny's worth in some juicy debates! I'm often very impressed by how articulate some of you are. I've defintely changed my stance on various things since reading some of your posts - so don't give up!

Hello, Dana. I'm from Alberta, Canada. I am a university student, writer, artist, and an aunt to my nephew and adopted nieces and nephews. I'm in a long term relationship. I believe that it does take a village to raise a child, and I take my duties as aunt seriously. It's been wonderful watching my nephew grow up, and to watch over all my adopted nieces and nephews. I'm also a godmother to twin boys. I feel that I am making a difference in these children's lives. What kind of books do you read? I read anything--especially biographies, fiction, poetry, and books about media personalities like Oprah. I got the book commemorating the 25 years of the broadcast of the Oprah show, and the impact she has had on the States and the rest of the world. I started watching her when I was 16, when her show first started in 1986. I've been following Oprah ever since. I also have the OWN network, not by ordering it, but the women's channel that I had was taken over by her network. It was nice how that worked out. I just finished reading a book about a woman who inherited a collection of wonderful clothes, such as Chanel, and more importantly, the stories that came with them. The illustrations of the clothes are wonderful. I have also read a book about Marilyn Monroe and her main dresser for her movies and public functions. But it is also a story about civil rights--Marilyn went to a black jazz club with her dresser, and the studio wanted to fire the dresser for going there. Marilyn wouldn't have it, and said, "If he goes, I go." I had know idea that Mailyn was progressive in that way. She also took famous black people into elite clubs where blacks were usually not invited in. She did this for Ella Fitzgerald, the famous jazz singer. Marilyn was also a rebel, and looked out for black people, as well as others who would not tow that racial line. There are more stories about racial prejudice in this book, but I won't tell you more. Get the book, or go to the library. The title is Dressing Marilyn by Andrew Hansford. Mailyn's dresser was William Travilla, a talented fashion designer who did many of his fashion sketches in watercolour, and some are in the book. I like how books can be about one thing, but through reading more, you see that there other things going on in the narrative. I enjoy books like this.

I also enjoyed Clinton's My Life, which chronicled his childhood, his youth, and his college years--including going to Oxford. It also talked about his running for governor, and his first attempt was not succesful. But with determination, he finally succeeded, being one of the youngest governors in the States. What I also enjoyed was that this book was not just about him, but about his family, the things he saw wrong in the world, and his attempts on fixing them. He had a bit of a hard road ahead of him when he had an affair with Monica Lewinski. But he got his stuff together, and is still happily married to Hillary--thanks to therapy, and the willingness to communicate about problems that he had to deal with. I'm also reading an art deco book which I find fascinating, as well as as a biography on a famous woman who was one of the first commercial woman photographers. i enjoy learning about events in history, and feel schools should be doing the same thing. Are schools doing that? Anyway, all the best--Happy New Year.

My name's Megan, most people forget about that 2nd Syllable and call me Meg. I'm 29 and an American about to be married to a Canadian. This of course means that I've learned a lot about Canadian government and politics and am in definite agreement with the fact that we need some health care reform. I'm just not sure how it's unconstitutional to require people to have health care, but it's constitutional to require people to pay for mistakes made on Wall St.
I have one 6 year old from my first married (Divorced for the past 6 years) who will be 7 soon and a baby due mid March,
I don't have a college degree, but I have credits in evnviromental conservation. I work as a Home Health Aide and am also a certified phlebotomist. I was raised Catholic but also know a bit on other religions including Islam and Paganism.
Heh finally I consider myself a moderate because my veiws are very twisted. I'm not for abortion except in extreme cases, but I wouldn't want to forbid anyone from getting one. I'm for same sex marriages and gun control. Oh and I believe that God has bigger things to deal with than if the governor of New York is living with his girlfriend or not.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Catherine Denny - SAHM of 2 boys 3 & 5 - American, opinionated, conservative, patriotic, educated.
I have a tendency to be quiet. That does not mean I do not have thoughts/opinions on something. I gravitate toward intelligent discourse and away from heated arguments. It is impossible to convince a closed mind (conservative or liberal) and I hate to waste time trying. It is usually pretty clear, early on, which way a conversation is headed.
I love the thought "You need not raise your voice when you should be reinforcing your argument" - even though that does not always work :)
I don't have time or energy to be angry for long (especially with 2 toddlers), but as my dear friend taught me... "you have my permission to stay mad, I've moved on"
This is probably one of the longest posts you will ever read from me :)
I hope this group will be informative, engaging & entertaining. I am always open to being convinced & learning new things... but I require details & evidence to change my mind, not just opinion... no matter how strongly someone else believes.
And this is the one and only time I will EVER remark on my religious thoughts (1) If you live like there is no God, you better be right & (2) I believe in God, I just don't like Him very much.
Thank you for reading this far & getting to know me a bit.

I'm Stacy, have one daughter, one grandson, and one more grandson on the way, very excited! I am still married to my high school sweetie; still smile every time I see him! God has smiled on me! I am a registered Republican but voted last election independent as I do not believe in "to big to fail". I am very Conservative and believe that guns just make every man equal. Spent most of my life in Washington State, lived all along the west coast, currently in California the last 5 years or so and cannot wait to leave!

I just realized that I never answered this. :)

Okay, for those of you who do not know me, my name is Krista. I'm 36, married, and have a little boy, Sam, who will be 2 in August. I live in Nova Scotia, Canada.

I'm a bit of a political junkie, although I have been out of the loop lately, mostly due to outrage fatigue. I am very socially liberal, and believe that as long as you are not hurting anybody, you should be able to go about your business in peace. Fiscally, I can be conservative in some things, liberal in others. When it comes to important social programs like health care and the social safety net, I prefer government over private industry. The government isn't perfect by any stretch, but they're not as motivated by profits, and I find them to be much more accountable. I'm a bit of an anomaly in Canada, as I am a social liberal who does not support the long-gun registry.

I am very passionate about people having the same rights that I do, regardless of their gender, religion or sexuality. And I blame Ted Turner for the dumbing down of our media -- when you've got 24 hours to fill, you inevitably wind up filling it with a bunch of crap.

Hi. My name is Stephanie. I am 22 and separated (though not legally) from my husband. I have two kids. their names and ages are Rowan Artemus, 17 months, and Rohan Erose, 7 months, respectively. I often find myself voting both sides of the fence as I also do not like to be told what to do. I also like to read (our home has at-least one books shelf in every room but the kitchen... and that's cuz the living room has three) and as such my home kinda looks like a library. I enjoy ppl telling me what they believe but I think it should be done in a way that does not tell me what to believe. I am a strong, independent woman, who has just gotten out from under the thumb of an abusive male... so please don't mind me if I seem so strong it is offensive to you. It is not my intent and I also have a chronic case of "foot in mouth" syndrome. I aslo chronically remind people to try to put themselves in other peoples shoes. I firmly believe that as long as you educate yourself you can be as bigoted as you wish... just as long as you are willing to except that's what it is.

Hey Karla! I'm 51 too! And I was once a Republican! And a conservative! Now I'm a liberal. Very liberal. And now that I am 51, I no longer feel the need to quell my voice. Not that I ever did:)

Hi! I’m Karla and why are we posting our age? Lol I’m 51, I have four children: 2 are adults at ages 26 and 22, and my other two are 17 and 14. I was a SAHM for years, and now work full time at a small Catholic Liberal Arts College. And I’m American.
In an ideal world I would probably lean conservative, but since we have a deeply marred and injured world I am very liberal. I’m too judgmental, especially with politics, and I have been around too long and seen too much to allow myself to keep quiet. I also feel nothing will change if the collective “we” cannot talk about issues and come to some sort of understanding. I especially believe we must allow our elected officials room to compromise with each other; that’s the only way we will see progress.
I have not yet decided if COM is for me… (though I’ve enjoyed it so far.) Maybe I should start a debate about it somewhere!

Hi! My name is Emily and I'm a work from home/stay at home mom. I am currently pursuing my Master's Degree in business administration and will graduate in Aug of 2012 (right before BO gets kicked out of office-hopefully!). That'll be a great year for me....In the meantime I am very stressed out. Taking care of kids, the house, my work, and this degree is rough. Especially now because I am in advanced managerial accounting which can be described as nothing less than torture. Next is statistics, so I'm sure I'll be tons of fun after Christmas time as well-NOT!

I'm glad I happened upon this community because I love to debate politics with people and since most of my family consists of democrats they avoid political discussions at all costs with me (because they always lose, of course!).

I'm a conservative-on-the-verge-of-libertarian. I think abortion is nothing less than evil, so I can't be a full fleged libertarian there. I am close to thinking we should legalize marijuana, so I'm not completely conservative either. It's not because I smoke dope or anything, but I think we should legalize it so that it takes the money out of the hands of the cartels. Our current situation isn't working, so might as well try something else, right? However, I don't subscribe to the tax the heck out of it and set up rehab clinics matra of liberals. I think if we are going to legalize it we need to be prepared to step over people in the street. If they want to walk around loaded all day let them...but they get no help from us taxpayers to do so.

That's all for now....I'm sure I'll be elaborating later.

ding! ding! Round one...

I am 31 living purple in a very red state. I am soon to be divorced from the guy I married against all good sense. I have a beyond precosicous 12 yo son who is by turns the light of my life and bane of my existence. Politically I trend very liberal on social issues and trend conservative on fiscal and foregin policy (provided my social policies are paid for first). I am a social worker (that is my actual degree not a job title) working primarily with children with developmental delays and mental illness. Religously, I have decided that I am undecided.

Hi Pam. On October 12, 2008 I woke up with a nagging pain in my lower abdomen. I am prone to kidney infections and that's what it felt like. I remember the date because it was 2 days after my son's birthday and I was making him a special supper (pot roast). The next morning it was so bad, I went to my doctor's office. He immediately sent me to the ER. They checked for kidney stones, ruptured ovaries, you name it. I was admitted for a week with dilaudid every 4 hours because the pain would take my breath away. After a week, they still came up empty.

In a nutshell, I have continual abdominal and lower back pain. I've had every blood test I can think of. I've had 7 CT scans since Oct 2008. I've had 2 MRIs of my lumbar spine. I've had a bilateral retrograde cystoscoopy (very unpleasant) and a nuclear renal scan. I've had upper and lower GI series, colonoscopy and upper endoscopy,

I was misdiagnosed with Crohn's Disease in 2009 and thankfully had that changed because that medication really knocked me for a loop. We've ruled out anything renal - my urological system is in great shape. We've ruled out anything gastrointestinal. The only problem with my belly are things we already know about - chronic gastritis and hiatel hernia. The last MRI shows early stage degenerative disk disease, 2 bulging disks and something wrong with my sacral bone. However, they don't think this is causing all the pain So I must now again, go see an obgyn to check again for endometriosis.

So I live in constant pain. Sometimes it's so bad that I have diarrhea or vomit my food. I miss a lot of work but thankfully my employer is so good to me. I miss a lot of social activities too. The pain medications make keep my brain fuzzy. And I get depressed from it all.

May I ask what you're symptoms are Jen? My husband started developing some interesting neurological systems (blurry eyesight, difficult time getting words out or sometimes even remembering words, shaking, what he called a "brain cloud" etc). He thought it was mercury poisoning but the MD thought Lyme Disease. Got him tested and sent his blood samples to a lab in California. He tested positive for 2 strains of Lyme. We think he's had it for about 3-5 years. Have you been checked for Lyme? (Of course, the temptation for me is since this is what we're dealing with, it must be what everybody is dealing with...) He is currently on mega doses of antibiotics...

[deleted account]

Hi, my name is Jennifer. I'm once again a single mother after I left my rather unpleasant 2nd husband. My son is a brilliant 13 year old and I'm terribly proud of him. His goal in life is to join the US Air Force to serve his country, then go to MIT to study engineering. He is my life and sometimes the only reason for living.

I am a professional phone monkey otherwise known as a call center representative and have done almost every kind of work - customer service, billing, collections, automotive repos, sales. I do not enjoy my work but I am very good at it.

I am the part-time caretaker of my father who has been seriously ill for 8 months - he almost died in December.

I am a massive cat lady. I currently have 5 and they are my babies. I volunteer for the local SPCA.

My political views are not easily defined. On some issues, I'm liberal, some I'm conservative and on others I'm libertarian. I'm registered Indepedent. i follow the best I can. My religious are simple - I'm an atheist. My worldview is generally secular humanism, sometimes just my own ideals. I enjoy the discussion on these issues. I learn a lot and hope I teach something too.

I deal daily with chronic illness. I don't know what exactly is wrong with me yet despite 2 years of constant medical tests and sometimes think my doctors are tossing medication at me to see which one sticks.

I am an avid reader about what is happening around the world. I used to be liberal conservative still am. I no longer have a party i belonge to because the new world order is taken place . i read about the masons and the new world order and into history. It is very scary what is going to happened to us as a people around the world.

Greetings! I'm Pam. I'm a half a century (that would be 50) and the mother of 2 boys, Ben (15) and Dan (12). (We got started a little late:o) My husband and I run an energy consulting business (we perform energy audits on residential and small commercial buildings) in Northeastern Minnesota. My political views are always evolving - I probably lean more to the left of center - at this point, I am a registered Democrat. I used to be a registered Republican but over these past years, I have been extremely disturbed at the direction the party has headed in. I dislike the corporate hold that is on both parties. I regard voting as a civic duty and so I take it fairly seriously. However I recognize that the Democrat/ Republican/ Independent/ Libertarian are just imperfect human concepts on how to govern, as is Democracy/ Socialism/ Capitalism/ Free Market. I prefer Liberal Social Democracy because it takes in the consideration of the common good. It isn't however a perfect system (and no system is). We pretty much all want the same things but we don't always agree on how to achieve them. I am follower of Christ and because of that, I am deeply interested in social justice issues. Currently I am reading books by Shane Claibourne "The Irresistible Revolution" and (this sounds hokey but I swear it's not) "Jesus for President". It might sound scary for those of you who do not prescribe to the Christian faith - but I promise you, he isn't promoting theocracy in any shape or form. He co-founded The Simple Way in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Philadelphia - which is similar to the Catholic Worker houses that Dorothy Day started. The discussion he presents is intriguing and very challenging to the way we live (particularly as Christians). I do love discussing politics but only if it's civil (and there is so little of that going on currently). I'm excited that this group exists and look forward to further discussions on issues that matter (I sound like an ad for NPR). Peace to all of you!

I'm Kat, 31 years old. i'm a stay-at-home mom to my son Tristan who's gonna be a year old on 6/11/10, and have been married for almost 2 years. my dad was in the Navy til i was 16, so i've lived all over the US from East to West coast and North to South. i live in a small town in Indiana on the northeast part of the Ohio River, but i'm a city girl from Virginia Beach VA.

as for politics, i love debating and can play devil's advocate pretty well (lawyers have told me i have the personality to be a lawyer, coming from lawyers i'm sure it's a good thing, but coming from anyone else it'd probably be a bad thing lol), and can debate opposite what i actually believe. i'm a Conservative Republican but i've voted for Democrats as well. i've been to a Tea Party Rally, and found the people pretty awesome.

Hi...I'm Mary. I'm 33, married to my hubby since Oct. 06. We have a two year old son, Miles, and a (almost) 3 mos. old daughter, Mayah. I teach Philosophy at a local College. I am an avid reader, and a political news junky. I don't concider myself to be of any particular party, but the Green Party in the US is probably closest to my views on a regular basis. If socialism worked, I would be a socialist, but since it doesn't...Liberal Social Democrat might describe me. I have voted for Republicans before in local elections, however...I don't do what the party tells me, I make up my own mind. I told everyone I talked to that President Obama would be our "next" president here after his 2004 speech at the democratic convention...I was pleased as punch to be right about that! I'm a big city girl from a small town background...I love my family more than anything...and I love teaching too. I've enjoyed being part of this group for a year now...hope it continues to be interesting and thought provoking!

Hi ~ I’m Kate. I am a Christian, devoted wife to a tugboat man and SAHM to 3 wild and wonderful boys ages 8, 5 and 4. My husband and I easily fell into the classic if not mainstream roles of disciplinarian father and nurturing mother. Don’t get me wrong, my hubby is a loving and fun father. They play and goof off together, but, when it is time to lay the smack down - he’s the one to do it. This presents a problem when he is on the Bering Sea with no cell service and spontaneous war breaks out in the family room. As for politics - I’m for small/limited government. My views tend to fall in the libertarian category and I vote republican - usually as the lesser of two evils(please pardon the expression). As our two party system really prevents us from choosing otherwise, lest we split the vote. To clarify - I want less power in the hands of the politicians, whose assumed god-like status and corresponding income make them believe they don’t have to listen to the will of the people. And more power in the hands of the governed - who better to make decisions about our lives than ourselves right?

I look forward to chatting with you all...

Hi I'm Ruth I'm in my mid 20s. I am a Military Wife, and the mother of a beautiful 5 month old baby girl. I'm a registered member of the GOP but am thinking about becoming an Independent! It's not because I'm moving politically to the left, but because it seems the Party is and it's leaving us Real Fiscal/Social/True Conservatives behind. I am proudly a Christian, and I don't feel the need to apologize for it to ANYONE! Honestly, no matter what you may have learned in your government classes this beautiful country was founded on Judeo/Christian beliefs, and I do believe that the leaving behind of those beliefs or at least the Moral Foundations are what is destroying this Country. I'm pretty sure I bleed Red White and Blue and I love it! or as I say on my FB page (under the political beliefs) Slightly to the Right.... Of Rush Limbaugh!

Hi! I'm Stephany. I'm a SAHM to two boys. Andreas is 4 and Liam is 2 1/2. Andreas has autism. I'm married to a guy whose greatest political defeat occurred when the elections office told him he needed more than one person to make his own political party. I love him dearly, though. We've been together for 9 years and married for almost 2.
I live in a very liberal state and I think it is almost a requirement to bleed blue. I consider myself a democrat but my views are all over the place, no aisle included ;). My husband says I'm a conservative democrat, I say he's crazy, so who knows? I love the freedom of living in the U.S., but I think there is a lot we should and could be doing differently to make life better for everyone (including- gasp!- the rest of the world!). I look forward to getting to know all of you!

Wow, LaCi, I hope we haven't made you suicidal. That's pretty scary. I promise, we're not at all like high school bullies. Feel free to post, ask questions and make statements. I guarantee we'll all welcome you to the group. No need to be afraid.

I'm LaCi. Obviously. ^
SAHM, eternal college student, registered as a democrat but I don't really Identify with either political party. Don't know if I can handle this group, so far it's made me suicidal just reading through it. We will see.

Hey Y'all, I'm Alisa. I'm a work-from-home-hockey-football-mom of two fabulous boys, and wife to a Canadian husband. I was born and raised in Georgia and I come from a very political family. My Grandmother was the Mayor of my hometown for 22 years. She was a Chicago born, Lebanese, Liberal Democrat, and she was amazing. I have worked and lived all over North America and most of Europe, and have experienced politics in many, many countries. I KNOW, and have experienced, first hand the healthcare systems in Canada, England, Ireland, Spain, Italy, France, Poland, and the US, so if you want to debate me on that one, I'm ready for you with first hand knowledge. I am thrilled to have had these experiences in my life because they shape my beliefs and views. I only wish our citizens were encouraged to leave the US and go live abroad for at least a year of their lives. I think the general population would think drastically different about many things we do politically if they experienced things in other countries first. I hope to run for office someday soon, but since I am a liberal Democrat, I fear I'll have to move to make that happen. I live in a very conservative area of Georgia, but I fight the good fight, and do my best to get my views heard. I am the Gwinnett County GA Democrat Examiner for Examiner.com, and my best friend and I just started our own business. I can't wait to hear more about the rest of the moms on this page!

I'm Sara. I'm 25, been married 5 years to my best friend, Jason. We have a 21 month old daughter, Eliza. We live in southeast Louisiana and I wouldn't live anywhere else. I would be considered conservative by this group, but I'm liberal compared to the people around where I live! My husband and I are Christians, so that affects our views, but I promise I won't try to convert anyone on here! You might see my religious views creep into some conversations though. Currently, I stay at home with my baby girl and have a small home based business. My husband is a nurse in a prison. I was a teacher before I had my baby. I love eating, cooking, working out (I have to after eating and cooking!) and "couponing". And of course, I love COM!

Hi everyone,



I'm Amie. I'm married with 4 kids. (3 girls and 1 boy) I'm not an avid political ticker but I do enjoy them! I've actually been pretty slack lately with keeping up on things. I'm Canadian, so by default I'm a liberal. LOL!
