As a country, we seem to become more and more divided every day. Decent, intelligent people can't even have a disagreement anymore. It doesn't seem like we are fixing anything when we can't even have the discussion. That's why we created this Meetup group. It is for people from both sides of the political spectrum that are interested in meeting for rational and non-confrontational discussion and debate. People meeting to discuss major issues. Locally. With ground rules. No disrespect allowed. All honest opinions given their weight. If every community would attempt such a thing, can you imagine what could be accomplished? This group was founded by two friends--Drew Austen (a liberal) and John Smith (a conservative / libertarian). Together, we would like to moderate some civil political discourse. If you feel that you are capable of engaging in healthy, rational debate without becoming angry or confrontational, we would love to have you join us.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
