Is Politics your thing?

Post by Lammchen » 3 months ago

Are you big on politics? Do you sleep eat and breathe your political party's values?

I have a few friends on Facebook who constantly post political memes and some are pretty funny but I don't find myself being as politically minded. What kinds of things do you say to your non-political friends to get them interested in what you believe in?

I used to try to debate politics with people or get others to believe in my values. I realized at some point, though, that debating politics, at least to a great length, is a waste of time. Most people have their minds made up on political issues, and while it is possible for them to change their values over time, it sure as hell isn't going to happen because of my two paragraph blurb on an Internet forum or on social media.

I've learned to have political opinions and not talk about them.

Talking about them usually gets you in trouble and doesn't really change anything anyway.

We talk about politics in the house and I admit I've discussed it elsewhere, but it's very carefully chosen people I talk to if it's in depth politics. I have fairly strong opinions, and yet don't.

I could form a billion threads in the Debate section on some of the most asinine political opinions I've ever seen people unironically believe and support on social media.

I'm pretty sure that a lot of politicians have mental health issues, so you should be fine. Being a pathological liar would probably help in politics as well. XD

I'm pretty certain 99% of politicians are narcissistic. You usually need to be something like that to be insane enough to run for office. That or in the case of George Washington who didn't want to be President but everyone begged him to do it.

I guess it depends on which office you're running for as well. Running to be a state representative or be on the school board or something like that might not require as much narcissism as, say, running for the U.S. Senate.
