A Place to Share Your Political Thoughts and Opinions.
THE POLITICUS is a user-generated political news site. Users have the opportunity to submit full-length articles, short blogs, and poll questions.
Founded in 2008 by Dammand Cherry, the goal of THE POLITICUS was to create a place where people of different political background's could come and share their love and passion for politics. We love when people come to our site and create content and share it with their community. But what we love even more is when people engage within THE POLITICUS community and create continuous conversations outside and inside of the site.
