Day 5 of 30 Days of Real

Welcome to my 30 days of Real series where we share a little bit of the “real you”. You can share anything from some quirky trait of yours, to things you struggle with, to anything really, but as long as its real and who you are, that’s what we are looking for.

Do not talk politics with me. First off I don’t think there is a single person on the planet that has the exact same views I have on political issues, so that alone should explain the vast majority of the people out there and what concerns them most. Truth be told, I hate political seasons. I hate slam ads mainly because politicians think they can dumb down the public. That we really are that stupid that we can’t see right through the slam ad. I feel that most politicians go into office with a genuine heart, but them big box corporations start funding their campaigns for their own personal agenda and what politician is going to say no to their child’s free ride to college?! This is where the corruption starts and where when the people vote and go to the poles the idea is to vote for the least corrupt person. I hate it. I mostly hate the stuff people put on Facebook blaming the president for this or that and putting all of the nations problems on one person’s shoulders. I feel it’s incredibly naive and stupid. And as each year passes I have less and less faith in our government and the process it takes to be in office and make a difference in this world. While I’ll always feel blessed to live in the land of the free, Politics is something I don’t even what to discuss among friends because I want to keep my friends! 🙂

  1. I don’t like talking about politics either. I don’t understand how people can get mad at the president when also congress comes into play on the decisions. I agree voting is deciding between the 2 evils sometimes.

  2. I love talking about politics. Not really talking, as much as I enjoy observing others while they rant and the faces they make. It’s almost as enjoyable as listening to someone talk about a football game that you missed. I don’t really listen to what is being said, but I utter hmmm, wow, that’s interesting, oh my, and a few huh’s in there. 😀

  3. Reading this post makes me feel so nostalgic. During the era when blogging is still new, we have this thing we called “Awards”. You give somebody an award and call it whatever you want and you will make a post why you give them the award, then the owner of the blog that you have been awarded will acknowledge it in a blogpost and will also pass the award to another blogger. It’s awesome because it connects bloggers all around the world.

  4. Well, I avoid politics myself, mostly. Occasionally I talk about opinionated topics, and that can bleed into politics. However, I’m fairly open minded and accept other’s viewpoints with grace–unless they are fuels but hate or purposeful-prejudice. 🙁

    1. Well that’s good. Its good to at least be open mined. I don’t mind opening my mind up to new ideas and ways of thinking. The people that bother me the most are the ones that rant but really have nothing factual to say about politics, its mostly hearsay and what they “want” to hear.

  5. I think you and I have something in common. Politics is very much something I avoid talking about and my views has become less in less about trusting those in politics. Thanks for sharing. Awesome post idea.

  6. I enjoy talking about politics myself, and it’s pretty rare for me to get emotional about it, but I’ve learned to keep things to myself for the most part in my large, and diverse circle of family and friends.

  7. I do enjoy hearing other people’s opinions and seeing things from various points of view when it is presented in a cordial, logical and friendly manner, but nope, no debating politics or putting up with long-winded tirades for me either!
