Hello, and welcome to Voat.

Slowly but surely the increasingly totalitarian actions of the administrators of reddit continue to waken those who still care about freedom to the truth.

I see you've found /v/whatever; a great catch-all subverse.

Don't be discouraged by some of the extreme perspectives that may crop up here from time to time; just because they are popular does not mean they are the only views on certain matters.

Words are always ok, since they are not crimes. I can disagree and be ok with that. No worries.

Check this out. It'll give you some of the tools you may be used to from "that other site." It's not official from voat, tho.

Also you'll still find folks who don't get that Voat isn't reddit and try to play "this doesn't belong here" games. Please feel free to stomp on them with glee and abandon.

Well said, Peace ... and welcome Throwing ... this is a great place with many diverse opinions. Try v/all new and get a look at all that comes in as it happens. Also wander thru v/vocatalog for an idea of the many subs available. Welcome!

There's plenty of us around here that hate both parties with the same fervor. Its just that this time around the democratic party made a particularly poor choice. The way I see it, hillary guarantees the same slow decline and erosion of rights we've seen for years, and trump is either going to fix the country or burn it down in the process. I'm not a fan of either of these options.

I highly encourage everyone out there to vote independent if they don't like their two main options. If it becomes a somewhat normal to see 15-20% of votes going to non-2 party candidates, it might help end the bandwagon effect and the dumb "throwing your vote away" argument that keeps our country in the hands of the political and financial elites.

I am also on this train. I'm not pro-Donald either but I am anti-morons-who-mindlessly-make-claims-with-no-evidence. Which I believe sums up about 95% of his opposition. A.k.a. the "He a racist! He a sexist!" people.

While I fully intend to write in Bernie or Gary Johnson, be aware our 2-party system unfolded for a reason. I strongly recommend this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7tWHJfhiyo. Basically even if the election was actually conducted in a fair manner, the process is still flawed and encourages consolidating your vote against your enemies, instead of encouraging you to vote for who you really want.

What announcement would you be referring to?

And, yeah, welcome and shit, took you long enough.

The other site made an announcement double downing that they were all about free speech and transparency, but just wanted to filter out some of the "evil". Someone asked them to define, "evil." I'm not sure what the response was or if the question was answered.

There's no response that would be defensible if you're actually all about free speech and transparency. Either you're for those things, or you're not. You can't say, "Yes, free speech except..." The moment you add any arbitrary conditions to it, you are no longer for it. Note: I do not feel that Voat's stance - any legal speech is allowable - is arbitrary.

What Jewlicious said. They aren't even "trying" to pretend they are ethical anymore.

Feel free to contribute here. With a smaller userbase, your opinion carries more weight. And if there seems to be a lack of certain content, please feel free to submit some of it.

your opinion carries more weight

what? no it doesn't. just because you can say whatever you want doesn't mean it's more right or wrong or important.

say whatever you want, OP, but don't think that because it's not reddit more people are going to give a shit what you have to say.

I think that oddjob was just trying to explain that, due to Voat's smaller userbase, you don't need as many upvotes to reach the front page or the top of the comments.

Greetings, refugee. You can have whatever opinions and beliefs you want, so long as you aren't a censorship advocate. Welcome to America.

You're implying Voat is more American than America itself, which... is basically true in my opinion.

Try not to be a nigger by expecting everyone to share your faggot views.
