I just wanted to talk with other people about the political parties, and how we all react
with one another.

Now, I'm liberal. (COUGHGONADERCOUGH :D), but, I have a lot of Republican, Democratic,
Libertarian, etc. friends. We hang out fine, until politics come into play.

I like talking about politics at times but around certain people i don't want to at all.
I accept your views bella and everybody else but please, not you Bella but everybody else,
stop trying to shove opinions down people throughts. I'm not really any of them, i don't
pick somebody based on their party.

Whenever I'm talking with my republican friends, part of me gets so annoyed at them that
it starts to affect my opinion of them, which is something that I don't want.

it can be surprising. i was really surprised when Saralyn started talking negatively
about Obama. i guess for some reason i thought she was more liberal than conservative. 

but its also one of those things where you think one thing and in your own mind you can't
understand why others wouldn't just naturally agree with your "resonable" interpretation
or opinion on those matters. lol

and sometimes its really surprising to learn that someone you otherwise think has a good
mind might disagree with you. it is like back in the OJ Simpson case (the original one -
doubt that anyone here remembers it) I just thought "oh only really stupid people could
believe the whole nonsense about the police planting the evidence and so on...and then I
like went home for break or something and my father was like, "yup they planted the
evidence.

O_O

and i was just like, "youve got to be kidding me?"

.......

so in some ways when it comes to politics it can kind of be like that sometimes.

What i dont respect is when people just sort of buy into something others have told them
and spout off really ridiculous things or take a position on something without really
questioning it or really understanding that there are ALWAYS arguments on both sides of
something.

what i appreciate and respect is that a person can stand firm in their position, they can
articulate their reasons for holding that position, AND most importantly can acknowledge
weaknesses in their position or belief and leave open the possibility that they are wrong.

I think that's the thing that annoys me Ed. Almost all of my friends are Republicans (I
do live in FL after all), but at least they have something to support their arguement.
When I talk with my friend Taylor though, usually her evidence is just by repeating
herself, or saying that her dad told her, and he's never wrong.

Even today, she didn't believe me when I told her that in the Inaguration speech, the man
who read it first messed up, and Obama was just being polite. You could see Obama pause
and look up before repeating the wrong thing. He studied the Constitution, after all.

lol yeah....the man..Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts....lol yeah i was
like....oops thats not right when i was listening to it live on the radio...

but Obama didnt get it right actually either....

everyone knows that the modifier should go right before the verb lol...."faithfully
execute the office of President"

haha but what was funny was the idiots saying..hey that means he's not president...
when the Constitution specifies that as of noon on January 20th the person elected by the
Electoral College becomes president (oath or not)...the Oath is just a formality....lol

still its like one of those things that is bizarre....at one of the most historical
inaugurations in history they flub it up..itslike wow...how dumb...
........

on another note,i thought it was amusing how some (mostly black people) when asked by
Comedy Central's interviewer whether Obama's becoming president was more important than
(our) landing a man on the Moon, they all said that it was. ^^  lol

sorry, but Moon Landing tops it......and always will at least until it displaces the
expression...."we can land a man on the Moon but we can't (fill in the blank)"

when we start saying things like:

"We can elect a black man President but we can't build flying cars?? What is up with
that?"

then i will agree that its more important than the Lunar Landing.

Well I'm democratic..though I guess I have Republican views in a way.
I personally don't like Obama AT ALL.
