About One Political Plaza
One Political Plaza, found online at OnePoliticalPlaza.com, is an online, digital forum where people can discuss political topics and issues without worrying about the website supporting a viewpoint or agenda.
According to their home page, One Political Plaza says that today's media has degraded into a political circus. You know exactly what stories are going to be reported and from what perspective depending on what channel you turn to - it seems that everyone is pushing their own positions and beliefs onto the American people.
It's not surprising that many Americans have found this situation frustrating and are finding it increasingly more difficult to find people who are willing - or even able - to find people that want to talk about politics intelligently.
One Political Plaza says that they try to solve this problem. They claim that their forum is a place for people who want to discuss politics and economics with sane people who actually understand what they are talking about.
Instead of "blindly advocating a political agenda," they promise that their forum is a place where individuals can voice their opinions and then back them up with both facts and logic.
To get started, all you have to do is register for a free account - an account which they promise will always be free - and even sign up for their political newsletter.
Activating your account means that each day you will receive the political forum digest with the latest news, analysis, discussions, and some things they say "the media simply isn't willing to report."
They promise that their members will be able to openly discuss topics like what is more hurtful to economy, welfare spending or defense spending? Why do politicians lie? Can there be more honest politicians? And who is the bank bailout helping, banks or real people?
The rules and guidelines for how to interact on their forum as well as begin new discussion threads are all clearly outlined on their website after you sign up for your free account.

interesting presentations of right wing extemism viewpoints plus a Russian propaganda operation on site
Interesting site for an education in fringe right wing extremism (and rudeness and filthy language both right and left). The Patty persona postings March 4 to present (preceded by Pana, then Capitalist personas in February with same subjects and story lines, same Russian internet propaganda site quotations, same response patterns, and unique 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. time schedules) are an education in present day fascist Russian viewpoint and propaganda intentions comparable to the old international communist Russian twisting and misrepresentation of issues to promote disillusion with America and radical action to disrupt American political and geopolitical decision....except the old prop op was aimed at twisting liberal thinking and the new op is aimed at twisting conservative thinking.
Thus, OPP is a most interesting political internet site. One caution about participating in OPP discussion--many exchanges are characterized by personal attack, rudeness, and even filthy language. My personal experience with the Russian propaganda operation included a posting August 2, 2014, of my wife's name, our street address, supposed church & pastor name, supposed botanical club, with threat to contact them with damaging info if I did not stop targeting the Patty posts. I learned the same day that another poster had had outside-the-forum actiion against his business from the Patty persona after a disagreement in discussion. I was suspended Aug. 3 from OPP "to protect you from harm." However, as of today, August 5, the threatening Patty is still posting the usual 5 or 6 topics per day (hasn't missed a day 150 days straight--836 topics, 9,300+ postings). So think twice before you post disagreeing with the Patty persona on OPP and be careful not to give personal info that might identify you and enable info search or computer hack.
As for the forum itself, the moderators keep an excellent eye on it by preventing spam and trolling. Although many posts consist of typical conservative/liberal bickering there are several informative items presented with (mostly) intelligent discussion. If you're expecting a high-minded philosophical debate in the classical style, this is NOT the place for you. But if you want to share opinions with fellow Americans who have a passionate interest in the affairs of the United States and are not afraid to speak their minds, you will not be disappointed.
