I am about to talk politics.
For those people who stuck around and didn’t run for the nearest exit while screaming in terror, I’m not talking about politics selectively. This is not going to become a debate between those people who are seeking the presidency in November.
Okay, for those people who are still sticking around as the other readers grumble and storm out the door while waving their political affiliation flags, what I wanted to discuss is this - political posts.
I have blog readers who are both on the left and on the right, meaning Democrats and Republicans. I think I might even have a Libertarian lurking. I have visited everyone’s blog who has expressed their political viewpoints of the candidates and their opposition. And I have something major to tell all of you.
Normally, I have nothing to say on politics. When leaving a comment on someone’s post, I will tell them this is a topic I don’t talk about but that I am still interested in your blog and your point of view. What has come to impress me the most is the open debate I have found. Sure, now and then there will be a person (usually posting anonymously or under a fake name) who has to ruin the party. In their comments, they snub others over their opinion then scamper away while thinking they got the upper hand on everyone. Yet, in reality, most of these comments will not dampen the spirit of intellectual dialogue and lively discussion.
I have witnessed the meeting of the minds who may or may not agree with the certain agendas that the politicians are preaching.
I have seen back-and-forth statistics, academic achievements, fears of failure and hopes of success in the delegates.
I have noticed all sides striving for one goal: the improvement of society and the desire to achieve a peaceful and prosperous nation.
And isn’t this what real politics are about?
