    Thank you for taking the time to visit this site. The main focus of U.S. Politics Online is the free exchange of ideas. All views are welcome!

    We encourage you to register as a member here in order to have the best possible experience. The discussion forum is a place to share your ideas, discuss the issues with others, and learn as much as you can to become a better informed citizen.

    Today we face dangers and threats not fully realized in the past. Countries are continuing to build and seek out nuclear weapons. Terrorists are organizing like never before to disrupt the way each of us live. People have lost their sense of security, some their jobs, and others their lives. As we face these new challenges--politically, morally, and ethically--we must never forget what makes the United States and countless other countries throughout the world so great, our freedom...our liberty.

    Are you willing to remain idle; to sit by and watch this world change without getting involved; without letting your voice be heard and without listening to the voices of countless others from every political perspective, religion, nationality, gender, be heard as well? Please, get involved and be heard...but never forget to listen as well.

    Thank you for your time and we look forward to you sharing your ideas and thoughts on the issues that matter most to you.

    Warm Regards,

    Marc

    As a notice, to all USPO members, any links solicitation or any type of communication involving sports betting / gambling / online casinos / bookies and or internet based card or slot machine systems or sites will lead to all said content being physically removed from the site and server and will lead to any and or all parties involved being permanently removed and banned from the site to the farthest extent possible.

    This includes any links to any form of bookmaker, casino, any type of game or match or event where money transfers on the outcome or link of any sort to wire act violations and or anything in violation of either the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act, Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, or the Federal wire Act.

    This applies not only to the open forum but all and or any chat rooms, articles, private messages and or private forums. All content that violates this rule will be deleted, without notice.

    This is not only a violation of TOS with our host but also with our search engine providers and back in 2004, the biggest search engine operators all announced they were removing all advertising content of all online gambling. Thus if our search results on their providers show any advertising of any sort to any gambling it is not only a violation of the TOS with the host but we will end up losing our SEO. Before it ever of course gets to that stage we will instantly terminate the accounts of any parties involved.

    Bear in mind that back in 2002 in the fall, the 5th circuit court of appeals also ruled that the FWA prohibits electronic transmission of information for sports betting across telecommunications lines, so his may also be foul of the law, and subsequently may also end up landing users in legal difficulty. So in some ways, this may be doing you a massive favor. That also includes the usual tricks of users dropping off US servers and using Australian / British and Irish proxies as has been the case in the past.

    You have been warned, this is a zero tolerance policy and there will NO second chances. If you engage in it, you will be booted from the site.

    If you have any questions, please contact m directly through either private message or email, thanks.

    It's time to say 'enough is enough' and start enforcing the nudity rule of the forum. One of our former administrators obviously decided that we needed to mix a little porn into politics and encouraged others who knew no better to follow suit and that has always been against the rules originally handed down by the forum owner. When visitors search for a political site to join, many will not want to see half-nude avatars popping up on their screens, especially if they have children around or are at work so we're going to give everyone one week to remove any images from their avatars and signatures that involve nudity or inappropriate partial nudity. Failure to do so will result in admin removing it for you.
    I know many of you guys have encouraged Chloe (who was totally unaware of the rule thanks to a former admin) to keep her avatar up, but sorry y'all, it must be removed. Anyone who has a problem with this can voice their opinion but know this, the rule is firm and will not be changed.

    Hi All,

    I received a message from Google Adsense regarding the following:

    Google ads may not be placed on pages with adult or mature content. This includes, but is not limited to, pages with images or videos containing:
    Strategically covered nudity
    Sheer or see-through clothing
    Lewd or provocative poses
    Close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches


    I realize that this may be a hassle, but please adhere to this. If you are using an avatar that fits this description then please change it. If you're aware of a page that contains such content, then please let us know.

    This isn't meant to curb or restrict free speech, but is a measure that needs to be taken.

    As you can see, we have just made several changes to the site. This process will be ongoing as we work on not only adding additional features, but also improving performance.

    New features include improved searching options, Facebook integration, and the roll out of mobile apps for both the iPhone and Android platforms. I am hoping that the number of mobile systems supported will be increased at some point as I have neither of these.

    We are still working on getting the style to look the way we want.

    As always, we appreciate your participation and patience.

    Cheers,

    Marc
