It seems like you're having two different problems.
1. To see stuff. Look for the link entitled PBay on the upper left corner of the home page. You will be able to enter your address and sell from there.
2. The home page: http://www.puritanboard.com lists all the forums on the site. There's a reason why you can't see the Politics and Government forum on that page, though - you don't have 25 posts. Once you have 25 posts, there are about 15 or so more private forums that will become available to you. We use the 25 posts to vet people before we give them access to more private areas of the board.
