    Why make it so US biased? People in the rest of the world don't want to know about angry right wing Americans ranting about their hatred of everything that moves.

    The threads in the Politics forum are created by the members of LPSG. If you'd like to discuss something other than the Politics of the USA, start a thread.

    I'd imagine because this is a website with a largely American membership.:duh: You're free to start threads about non-American issues.

    What the last few people said.
    We'd welcome Politics from other parts of the world. Considering that the majority of people here don't even live in the UK, it would seem pretty foolish for us to start a thread about it. By all means... let us know what's going on in your neck of the woods.

    Agree.


    It might do some Americans some good to read it too.

    on this very topic, as a yank, i started a thread on Northern Ireland, joking about the very lack of focus of others on LPSG not from the USA who have not created and participated in threads on the rest of the world when they have appeared.

    maybe you should have participated in it, if you wanted a more global perspective here in the poli forum regarding others' participation

    here is a list of every recent non-US centered thread in the past couple of weeks, none of which you have participated in.

    why have you not participated in the Greece thread?
    http://www.lpsg.org/169576-what-will-happen-to-greece.html

    or my Northern Ireland thread
    http://www.lpsg.org/178715-northern-ireland.html

    or the gay UK voters thread
    http://www.lpsg.org/176373-gay-uk-voters-tory-labour.html

    or the new Era for the EU thread
    http://www.lpsg.org/156292-new-era-dawns-for-eu.html


    or the British National party
    http://www.lpsg.org/177049-british-national-party-how-likely.html

    or an Independent England
    http://www.lpsg.org/170163-an-independent-england.html

    or what will happen to Spain
    http://www.lpsg.org/172504-what-will-happen-to-spain.html

    or Sussex students suspended for protesting
    http://www.lpsg.org/175038-sussex-students-suspended-for-protesting.html

    or UK government clampdown on sharing
    http://www.lpsg.org/158443-uk-govs-clampdown-on-firesharing.html



    maybe if you and others participated more in the global threads it would not be so "US biased".

    If "People in the rest of the world don't want to know about angry right wing Americans ranting about their hatred of everything that moves.", they might consider actually creating and encouraging more discussion on other topics.

    all the threads i posted are within the last 3 weeks...maybe you should participate in what is already here, instead of lamenting its "Absence", while being absent from them yourself.

    Usually when a noob shows up and immediately starts bitching, it's a sign of bad things to come.

    Well, he only joined two days ago.

    You noticed that too? Funny how that works isn't it?

    even more reason that he should do a bit of research before making such pronouncements, vince, my friend :smile:

    i found all those threads on the first 6 pages of the Poli forum with a cursory glimpse of each page.

    I have to agree. The OP seems to be whining about an incorrect perception rather than reality.

    In the OP's defense... he does have a big wiener, so it's not a total loss... lol

    Oh, you really aren't gonna stop them from bitching. That is for certain.
