Political Blog- Anyone want to join?

I've decided to create a blog just for politics and I'd love people to join. It will be a pro-McCain/Palin site, so only people who are for McCain (or just anti-Obama) are welcome to write for it (anyone can comment).

Why am I doing this? I absolutely love discussing politics (for the first time in my life) and I want it to be a discussion which means people commenting and others responding to those comments. I don't think that fits well on my family's blog. I realize politics can be a touchy topic and I don't want having it on my blog to deter anyone from reading it and missing out on cute Kaylee moments (or on the post I'll eventually do on the Yellowstone geysers ;) ). Plus, I'd love to see what others have to say and not just in the comments, so I want to open it up for other people to be authors on the blog (and I obviously can't do that on my personal blog).

If you're interested in writing for it, let me know and I'll add you as an author. Posts don't have to be anything profound or detailed. They can even be a question to start a discussion. There will be some rules for it that can be found here. If I don't have your email address already, send it to thefightforconservatism @ gmail.com.

If you don't want to write for it, still feel free to read and comment. It'll take a bit for it to fully be up and running, but I'm hoping it'll be quite interesting (as well as a good way for me and others to get their political talk out without driving their spouse nuts). You can also send emails if there is any topic you're interested in us writing about.

Here's the address:

(If anyone has an idea for a better name, I'm open to suggestions.)

I didn't know you were into politics. I still know nothing about goverment etc. but with Dave's family the topics of conversation is either religion or politics. So I have come to learn more and have a desire to be more educated about it all, and definitely have become very interested in this election. I'll try to make educated comments and such on your blog, but I hope everyone will remember, I grew up in Vernal, jk! I hope you have luck with your blog.

I would love to read to become more educated. I am pretty clueless about most stuff in regards to politics. but I would love to comment and read. maybe later I will request to write, when I feel I have something educated to say. I am definitely for McCain
