Politics seem to make people different

Recommended Posts

I was on another forum and they had a politics section.  Suddenly the nicest posters previously turned into foaming at the mouth rabid dogs!  

It was quite a scary place!  I notice when I participated I started getting the same way.  I don't talk much about politics for that reason.

That being said what the heck is happening to people who are into politics heavily?  This was just a short rant.  :heartbreaker:

The 2016 election divided this country. American culture sees politics as sports; we clench to whatever team we are. We obsess about being right. Everything has to be an argument, and every solution is black or white. There is no middle ground. I lean liberal, and I try to respect people's political opinions, but 2015-2016 was just nasty. There are so many point of views that make issues immensely complex, but someone garnered quite the blind and zealous following beginning in 2015. No politician is a saint, but condoning things your following says and does? Sadly our current political atmosphere is extremely, extremely American. This is how we are.

Yes, I agree with you on everything.  It is so sad it has become that way, too.  I wonder if there is a way to reunite everyone but don't see that happening any time soon.  :mellow:
