New here and curious about the breakdown

Having just joined, I'm going to just ask a couple of quick questions. First, the number of groups I've seen here for specifically "conservatives" or "Republicans," but not for specifically "liberals" or "Democrats" makes me wonder if it's just random that those popped up, or if this site is predominantly populated by right leaning folks. Second, would y'all consider this site heavily politically oriented, or mostly not about politics?

Well, I gotta say that most of the comments so far back up a possibility that bounced around my head when I asked the question: that the conservative groups existed as a way for the outliers to find one another. I don't live my life based on politics, though as I get older I realize that keeping track of what's going on around me works more to my advantage than remaining ignorant.

I had a breakdown once. My car has had several breakdowns. Does that count?


Quite the opposite. I think most here lean left. It's the same reason you don't see a group for non-believers. There's no need for a sub category when the majority of members share a particular slant.

The site seems to mostly lean left, with the right-leaning groups being safe spaces for them.

Personally, I'm an independent and I refuse to align myself with either dominant political party for various reasons. Overall, I pay attention to politics as much as I can stomach and favor the candidates that seem like they'll work for a society that actually functions, instead of just trying to increase wealth inequality and make a buck for themselves


I don't know. But I am a hairy weirdo if that amounts to anything...

I'm a Social Democrat so I see both Liberals and Conservatives as dirty rightwingers. The latter more so than the former of course.
The reason you don't see Democrat exclusive groups on here is the same reason you don't see Asian exclusive dating sites in China.

I wanted to extend to you a welcome sign here...i think it is well worth your time! And, nobody is held against their will, if it all goes ‘south!’


We have some very liberal groups or anti Trump groups. I don't pay much attention to things that don't matter to me (limited time) but I see lots of political posts that are mostly liberal. Then again, that is what I am looking for. I'm told not everyone appreciates me, which is OK. We have opinions to offer on things beside politics, but politics is on the minds of many these days.


Mostly not about politics, but leaning towards politics. That answer your question ?

I cannot clearly divide liberals and conservatives on subject matters here. But, I would be surprised if there were lots of conservatives here! I have never found them to be this ‘open minded.’ I am political to a point, but I am interested many other things, as well! Just cannot tolerate trump on any level!


Agnostics tend to be more liberal, generally speaking.

I'm pretty new, too, but my feeling is that the overall group is left-leaning and that the right-leaners have their own group because they are in the minority. I also feel a civil tolerance across the board so far.

The "conservatives" feel that they need a special place where they can exclude others who are not. Liberals or progressives are inclusive by nature & definition. WE seek to embrace diversity of opinion. The site has many political discussions but it is hardly dominated by politics.

I am liberal and new here, as well. I am hoping to use this site as a place to escape from all of that and find some momentary diversions.

LB67 Level 7 June 14, 2018

There is certainly political discussion, but not out of scale with the many other topics that are covered. Having witnessed our site growing I would say that our conservative members made their groups to find each other in a largely Democratic atmosphere.
There's something for everyone surely. Welcome!

Politics are discussed but not to any great degree and it is mostly about religion. Many different topics are discussed.
