Politics and Why I Hate Them

Politics...sure is a nasty word that can easily divide a country. Heck, it can divide a family! I HATE HATE HATE politics. Sure, I have my opinions and they are pretty strong ones but I hate hearing about the same crap over and over and watching people get so angry at each other over different points of view. This is a FREE country where each one of us is allowed freedom of speech and the freedom to think however we want. Just because I like the color green and you like blue does not mean we need to get mad at each other. I will gladly share my opinions with anyone who asks but I refuse to be involved in a yelling or angry debate and basically 'fight' about it. I find these tactics immature and obnoxious.

On top of the the hatred politics brings I cannot stand how so many people use hearsay to make their opinions on different topics. I constantly see information especially on social networks like Facebook getting twisted and turned a million times. This is probably one of my biggest pet peeves. Form your own opinions based on your own research and do not listen to what everyone else says. For the sake of this country please do your research.

On a lighter note...The baby is bouncing around my tummy like crazy today :)

  1. lol! I couldn't resist commenting on this! I agree wholeheartedly. It's like a sign I saw at a rally --- "I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not hitler"

    I'm a politics junkie (love listening to the pundits and debate) but could do without all the hate and unintelligent rhetoric out there!

    ps. so happy for you and Tristan!
