Do you know what I hate?

People who won't talk about politics..... It drives me nuts. You go to any other country in the world other than the US and people sit there and have lively discussions about politics.

Everyone says politics and friends should not mix. I think that is so freaking stupid. Why? Well because you are not friends with someone for liking the same exact things. You are friends because you share common interests. Which means you don't have to agree on every single topic that comes across you. Discussing politics allows you to get your point across and hear what the other person has to say.

Don't have a discussion where one says the other one is right or wrong. Talk about why you like this candidate for such and such reasons and then allow the person to talk. You might learn something from one another.

In conclusion I think that we are so afraid of hurting each others feelings therefor we are unable to talk about what problems exist in our political system. If we openly discussed our gripes, fears, etc with the political system maybe we would all feel a lot better about who would be the right candidate for President.
