Hey Politicos... Our monthly meetup takes place at 8pm at the Euless IHOP (121 and Glade). Our general agenda is as follows: 1. Discuss the problem or the issue (and hopefully agree on the desired outcomes). 2. Present proposed "solutions" to the issue or problem (ideally from several perspectives). 3. Compare and contrast each "solution" and evaluate them according to the extent that they deliver the desired outcomes. We'll see if we can actually stick to the agenda. Please post suggestions for political and economic topics that you would like for the group to discuss. There should be no shortage of good things to talk about. Looking forward to seeing everyone there and discussing politics and economics with all of you! Todd

    Hi, ladies and gentlemen. I'm John. I take a rather deep and somewhat passionate interest in politics; economics; government. I am new at this and have been trying to congregate with minds alike, but have failed at it due to the void inquisitiveness many clasp. To me, it is far more than a leisure pursuit to be involved. Rather, I find it as an obligation to be a part of the political contribution of this country; educated on the current status of these subjects, if nothing else. I'm really excited to be there, but I do have a couple questions; is there an age preference?

      John, I might be the grandfather in the group. I do not care about age. It is your future and those that follow us. I wish more citizens would take your position. I am sure that the US would not be in this serious a situation if more people showed the obligation you have stated.

    Lets consider getting together on President's inaugural address and his state of union address, one or both as they occur.

    Well, I'm only twenty. Inexperienced in discussing Politics and Economics, so I'm curious as to whether my voice will be herd, and thoughts considered seriously, or at least as serious as everyone else. I have been in many circumstances likes this, because of my age.

      No problem, we frequently have people in their 20s coming out. There are also a few old farts like me. The "regulars" range from 20s to 60s with all ages in between. We have an "organized conversation" system that guarantees anyone who wishes to speak can, ie a list of whose turn it is to speak and a timer! Looking forward to meeting you next month!

    I'm thinking of asking if I can join this group. Could someone please let me know whether your focus is conservative or liberal. Thanks.

      Hey Ingrid - The group has no official focus from a political perspective. Most of the people who usually show up are Libertarian or Republican but Democrats are just as welcome to come (although they are more scarce than the others).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
