Over the course of the last presidential election I discovered something very horrible about politics and America's stupidity. I'm a little late to the game on politics but when listening to two sides of a debate I listed to both sides.
Somehow we have adapted our sports mantra to politics. "I'm a Republican, I don't give a shit what our guy stands for as long as he's a Republican too, we need Obama out!" "I'm a Democrat, no matter what Obama does he's right!"
This is just fucking stupid. Politics doesn't work by standing behind your team because a football team doesn't decide law. Chances are you agree with pieces of policy from both parties but you have your head shoved so far up your ass that you can't see it.
Next time you're watching a hard liberal/conservative broadcast ie. FOX or MSNBC think about how hard they are pushing you to support or in most cases hate a representative, not based on what they are doing or what that person is working for but because of who supports them.
If any group would work half as hard at dictating law and putting plans in action as they do slinging shit at their opponents we wouldn't hate politicians...well probably still a little bit.
