What is it about politics that stirs up such emotions in people? I’ve never seen anyone talk about the weather and end up angrily storming out. (Get it? Weather? “storming”? I’m here all week.) Well, I think it’s because political issues, regardless of what they are, cut straight to the core of humanity. Every issue, whether it be affirmative action, abortion, global warming – okay, I guess there is one weather-related issue people get fired up about – regardless, all these issues affect each of us, and people love to exercise that freedom of speech. That’s fine with me, just don’t get up in my face or call me names. This has happened more than once when I’ve been engaged in political “discussions.”
I used to be much more vocal about my political opinions than I am now. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good argument. I just got so tired of fighting with people who won’t back down, even when they have no evidence behind their claims. I have strong beliefs about every political issue, but I can also understand why people who disagree with me believe what they believe. Can’t we all just get along?
I don’t see our country ever coming into agreement, and that would make life boring anyway. Still, this seems to be the most divided our country’s ever been, and that’s not good, either. Maybe if we all just “give a little bit,” things would improve. The tone of our nation might improve. Everyone wouldn’t seem so angry and self-righteous. But maybe I’m just dreaming that this will ever happen.
