Mon Colonel, the term "modern politics" as used in this site is a broad based term that is interchangeable with both "Republican/Democrat" type politics as well as modern reenacting politics. As moderators, we've found the most contentious posts (ones that cause the most work in smoothing feelings, streamlining thoughts, and just plain being acceptable for conversation at Mr. Szabo's dinner table are of the reenactor politics kind. We've made the conscious decision to limit those types of talks and leave them best served with the various commanders and umbrella organizations to handle.

"But our opportunity to learn and grow, to communicate the richness of the lives that have gone before us, that does not change. We do not outgrow it. It does not tatter and fall apart in our hands..." -Mrs. Terre Lawson, 2010
