  • I believe politics is one of the most divisive, if not the most divisive, things in any society. To me, it often seems as though a person from one political party considers a person from an opposing political party an outright enemy despite being from the same country (see: USA), which is kind of ridiculous. I think almost all politics are bad, and almost all politicians are bad. I voted in the last two U.S. presidential elections, but I often wish I didn’t. I want to believe the politician I voted for each time (I voted for different candidates in 2008 and 2012) will help fix some of the country’s problems (economy, etc.), but ultimately I feel like any politician elected for any high-level position will do more harm than good, and there are many people who want to see that person fail to validate their own beliefs which they believe are correct.

    In short, I hate politics, for the most part.
