Admins MUST create lists of people to follow even before they get here and sign up. Take all the names you can think of that represent Conservative thought in all industries and sort that list by industry/profession. Do the same for Progressives. Now tag with either (R) or (D) so we know who is who. This is the most important thing if you want to create a community in the world today. People want to find others they can relate with. You have to make that possible, while not restricting people interacting beyond community guidelines (law and order) that respect individual rights over 'group rights'.
