I’ve always had a passing interest in politics. Following it, reading about it, commenting and/or debating it. I’d like to try my hand at blogging about it. I know at least one of you is going “Good god he wants somewhere *else* to spray his opinionated bs.”. And, well, that’s part of it. But more so, I’m thinking more along the lines of offering a place that could be used as a debating tool. I’m thinking something not too much different from this LJ, except a little bit more professional and, well, not necessarily on LJ. Very much unsensored, beyond the rules of common sense etc. Because really, media outlets and former political party members shouldn’t be the only ones who get to get on a soapbox about crap like this.
It’d cover politics on both sides of the Canada/US border, so if anyone’s interested in helping, I’d be curious to know that as well. Mostly because I don’t know nearly as much as I probably should about US politics. I already have a general idea of how I want to structure the blog, mostly. Now, I just need to know if anyone would read/contribute to it. Because, y’know, a blog written by and read by one person isn’t a very effective blog. See, this is what happens when I’ve been up for a while and up to my ears in news articles.

To be honest, I haven’t found a political blog I like. Strange considering I’m a political science student I know. But I would probably read one with an international focus.
