And you’ve been howling that since Bernie does better in head-to-head match-ups against Donald Trump and the rest of the GOP ne’er-do-wells than my gal Hill does,...

Join us for debate and discussion on OPEN FIRE!

The Facebook group, Open Fire (politics), was co-founed by Jeff Penn and Kevin Kelton in 2014. Our modest goal was to create a forum for civil, intelligent political discussions - not the vulgar verbal mud-wrestling we were seeing in other debate groups. Our mantra is to debate with honor, not debase with insults. Today, with 11,000 members spanning the political spectrum, we have a bigger ambition: to become a relevant, powerful voice in national politics. We hope to achieve that by leveraging social media, expanding our footprint, and partnering with other groups to magnify our voice. We hope you'll join us in that lofty goal. So please join the group, read our Guidelines, and jump in. Let's make the citizen voice count.
