Are you using politics as an excuse....
This morning as I was thinking about what I know as well as how much I don't know about the candidates I realized the tendency we have to make a decision and then just validate it more and more without really educating ourselves.
What I do know is that if you aren't informed enough to respect the other side and understand why their opinion and policies make sense then you don't know enough for your opinion to matter.
If you are you using politics as an excuse to blame someone, hate someone, or point the finger, (which I've certainly found myself guilty of it in the past and in so many more arenas than politics) then stop yourself and think for a minute...reverse your position just for fun and think about why 50% of the country disagrees with you and it'll help you approach this in a much better way.
