Hi from "Edzell" in Port Alberni, BC

Hello.

I've looked at a few forum sites and so far this is one of  the most civil ones I've found (with the exception of some devoted to gardening :).)

I hope for very open-minded civil discourse on a wide range of subjects, emphasising curiosity & exploration of ideas rather than debating fixed positions & polarised ideologies, with which I'm thoroughly fed up. Not too keen on the use of labels although they have some convenience if their meaning is clearly defined/undrestood. Interested in philosophical discussion & amateur psycholgy but not as academic disciplines - "homespun", even a bit naive, is good.

Hello from Mobo2000

Hi all,

Long time lurker looking to make the transition to semi-regular poster.   I've been reading rabble and babble, avidly, for over 10 years.   My politics is largely focused on issues of class/poverty/labour rights and anti-war, but Rabble and babble have helped me expand my horizons a bit, I hope.

For the oldtime posters here, I wanted to mention I went to highschool with Audra, and I miss Slumberjack, Maysie and Cueball.

I've been hesitant to post here in the past, but I'm trying to get over it.   In this age of Trump, I feel something of a duty to get better at talking with/listening to people with whom I disagree.   So I'm here to practice.   

Here's a little bit about me:

First babble post from a democratic reform activist!

I am an open minded democratic reform enthusiast always searching for a better way to select leaders and keep them accountable to the needs of the majority (at least) and preferably the legitimate needs of all citizens. I'm a fan of proportional representation but have reasons to think we should think carefully about what kind of proportional representation we want.

Hi From Red Deer

I started being interested in politics late in life but an event I found so despicable and Albertans appeared to be completely oblivious and just rolled over on it. I wanted to rant from the rooftops shake people to wake up and join me in getting these people out of office. Unfortunately I'm a definite "B" type personality and typically not very good at cojolling the people to take a stand. I hope here I'll get some pointers.

New here, author and debater from Sweden

My name is Mats Sederholm living in Sweden, Europe.

I'm a writer, speaker and chronicler and a system critics who, for the past 20 years, have been analyzing the power structures and standards of the West - my driving force is a strong belief in humanity and in a kinder society.

Personal political opinion: None, left the ordinary left to right or democratic to republic span of political identities 15 years ago as politicians are administrators of status quo rather than visionary and I want a change.

Is there anyway to change your username?

My username currently is an_unashamed_liberal, i meant this as a way to say that I am proud to be a leftist, since liberal, has at times been used synonymously with leftist, but I now see that it could mean that i am a supporter of the Liberal party, who despite me voting for in this recent election, are not my chosen party, so is there anyway to change my username?

A Canadian Citizen looking to get serious

Rabble.ca is one of my first out reach attempts to gather information, and join/cultivate like minded people that want and can limit the impact of people who steal from Canadians, cause violance towards Canadians, and who steal and cause violence (wars, coups, etc) to others on behalf of Canadians ("elected" officials preying on other countries).

If anyone has any material or links to other forums where people share information on how to prevent theft/violence from our rulers, please share.

I hope the rabble organization/community can be as helpful as it seems.

fyi: if this account seems dead in the future, still feel  free to PM. I will eventually check it, and appreciate any resources forwarded.

Young software developer

Hi there, I'm a young software developer, I'm a proponent of electoral reform, esp. proportional representation, I'm a democratic socialist, an environmentalist, and a skeptic. I'm also a gamer, and I have an interest in game development. I once posted to the boards a super long time ago, but that was so long ago, I might as well be a new user.

Lurking no more

Hello Babblers,

After a few years of lurking the Babble thread, I decided to join in. I teach political economy, write books, am strongly pro-union, and have worked on NDP campaigns so if you prick me, I bleed orange.

About 20 years ago when I was first legally allowed to vote, I did vote Liberal. I was young and foolish, so hopefully that won't be held against me!

So, hello from London, Ontario.

Finaly I'm here!

Hi everyone. Please let me introduce myself. My handle is WWWTT. I previously contributed to other forums so perhaps this handle may sound familiar. As I get more comfortable with navigating on this site/forum, I should become more bold and cavalier in my debates/discussion! My wife is Chinese. My parents are Portuguese (Acores) and I'm a socialist. Not looking for friends, looking to expand my awareness and share what knowledge/perspective I have been lucky to accumalate. Looking forward to what this site has to offer!

Hello from Minnesota!

Hello, everyone,

I am a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Minneapolis and St. Paul are very left-leaning cities, but for some reason our DSA local here is just a talking society, despite my efforts to get them to do stuff.

I have long had an interest in Canadian politics (Surprising to hear from an American, right?), and have actually visited two NDP conventions as an American observer, in Halifax in 1991, and the leadership convention in Ottawa in 1995.

Currently I am a semi-retired teacher, now doing substitute teaching (as I can't afford to retire!).

I enjoy reading Babble, to follow what is going on up there.

Hello, everyone!

Having now been a member of Rabble (love the name - inspired my self-mocking 'handle' - I'm really pretty mild) for about a month, I realize that I should introduce myself. I'm enjoying the various conversations and have contributed a few times - moving into a post-FB phase! So - be chatting with you.

Hello There Rabble Folk!

Hi everyone. 

I've been touring this site and reading the articles for some time now, and decided to sign up and start chatting on the Babble forums when my professors in University reccomended it to further our studies.  

I'm in my first year of Social Work to obtain my bachelor's degree, and enjoy learning about new developments in mental health, modern socialist views, and regional/Canadian politics.  

I hold many views on various issues in Canada, and would like to start actively working on fixing them for a better future Canada rather than just reading about them...

Greetings From Plan Nine North

Hello, after reading this forum for a short time I decided that I would like to float some ideas for the upcoming Federal election to a group of forward thinking people.

I hope that others will be able to improve on these ideas.

Now just a short background about me.

Hey, all!

I've been reading this board for a few weeks now and I'm so glad that there's a Canadian group of fellow political science junkies online. Like most of you, I'm absolutely disgusted with the trajectory Canada is on. The treatment of the environment, indigenous peoples, women and more makes it feel more and more like America Jr. every day. I'm a pretty strong NDP supporter and I'm excited to engage with more of you. I'm totally down for brainstorming ways to topple Harper, and all in all this seems like a fun place to let one's granola-crunching freak flag fly.

Sooo... yeah. Can't wait to start discussing!
