    Hello. I'm new to the forum. I accidentally discovered this board while searching for new political forums. They're a dying breed, you know. I'm hoping this one will be active.

    I suppose an intro should be about me, however. My name is Matt and I'm a regular on a few other boards as well as Reddit (or well I used to be - I got tired of the left wing hive mind there). I'm 31 years old and I hail from Virginia - mostly the Washington, DC metropolitan area. I work for the federal government not doing anything cool like you're thinking but it gets me by. I'm a USAF vet (2011-2015) and a very active volunteer EMT. I am a die hard conservative activist, at times leaning towards a nationalist, and I'm voting for Trump in 2020 as I did in 2016. I do some offline things with the local GOP and Tea Party groups but nothing notable.

    I tend to be rather opinionated but at the moment my interest lies more towards urbanization, development, commercial real estate, and infrastructure. Those are the topics I am most concerned with at this time aside from most of the standard conservative positions. I have a Bachelors in History and minored in Political Science. Politics has always interested me and I might run for office in the future. I don't know. I haven't ruled it in or out, frankly. I'm not there yet.

    I'm a fairly open book. Some of you probably know me from other boards. I'm laid back. I don't like drama. I'm not likely to start it either. Feel free to ask me anything you wish.

    Welcome aboard Matt ...

    You sound like a good Conservative type to me.

    If so, you should fit in nicely in here!

    However, as Retread used to say ... "Bring your flak jacket" or words to that affect ... Will let him explain.

    Once again:

    Hell, it's already turning out to be an interesting year. I don't think Russiagate 2.0 is going to get the Democrats what they think they're ordering lol.

    Thank you for the welcomes. I'll try to be active as much as I can. So far (I've been lurking) and the forum seems pretty cool. A bit quiet but not that bad.

    Although, I must ask.... (@SarasotaRepub can you answser?)

    Is this board's primary purpose to copy and paste Democrat Underground and respond to that forum on this forum? That's a trend I'm seeing and frankly I've never used DU and I don't care to start....I'm having trouble jumping into a lot of conversations because I have no context at all. :-/

    Welcome, so glad to hear that not all the fed employees in the DC area are Obama era activists hell bent on destroying Trump. As far as DU, I've been here since 2002 and never really got the DU thing. I think the DUmmies are just that--dumb and never have paid much attention to them. I think most of them over there are just pawns or paid stooges of the Dem party.

    What frightens me is that the current crop of Dem presidential candidates sound as dumb or dumber than those posting on DU. I can't fathom that such a large proportion of our citizens actually buy into that garbage. My majors in college were English and a combined history-political science degree. That somehow translated into selling office equipment to the fed govt for over 30 years. I made some good friends in my years of selling to the feds and preferred it to sales to major national companies.

    Welcome, it might be a quieter board, but it's been long-lasting. Hope you'll stick around during the next year. It should be very interesting.
