If you don’t know who you want to vote for, should you vote anyway?

Along the same lines, if you don’t know about each candidate for each position, should you leave the rest of the ballot blank or vote a straight party ticket?

If everyone considers a green party vote a wasted vote, when will it not be a wasted vote?

Is there any truth behind the phrase, “Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has not heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains”?

Should you vote based on your current situation or on your hopes for the future? For example, if you are middle-class but firmly believe you will make it to the upper-class, which interests should you vote according to? Theoretically, your beliefs and philosophies shouldn’t change based on your changing socioeconomic status, but I think we all know that they do.

Am I the only one who doesn’t mind people’s political musings, accusations, and ponderings on Facebook?

And last but not least, one of the best statuses I saw this morning:

Yay America! Good race everybody :) Though my boy did not win, I am hopeful that Obama will turn the US in a positive direction and that all will turn out well :D

 

During high school public speaking class, you are forced to argue one side of a debate, whether or not you actually agree with it. This exercise opened my mind to more effectively analyzing both sides of any debate in order to form the most educated opinion possible. If you understand the other side’s argument inside and out, you’re more equipped to respond to their assertions.

As you know, I don’t delve into political issues on my blog very often. When I do, I attempt to present an unbiased a post as possible {except in

If you’re close to me, you probably know my politic leanings. If you’re don’t know me well, you may be in the dark. For now, I’m going to keep it that way- I hope that not knowing which side I actually support will encourage you to keep an open mind as you read. I think it’s important to play devil’s advocate when addressing political and social issues, so hopefully I veiled my actual opinion well enough :)

For some people, business and politics are like oil and water- they can’t mix. For others, the two naturally go hand-in-hand.

Take Chick-Fil-A for instance. Many people don’t know that they routinely donate to anti-gay organizations like Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council.

Whether you believe these organizations are worthwhile or not is your choice. But the fact is that Chick-Fil-A is using revenue generated through their successful business model to support an agenda that they believe in.
