Does anyone of you follow politics?
« on: May 14, 2019, 09:02:18 AM »
Politics is turning out to be very repetitive and at times confusing. Will we ever get to a point where our politics can inspire the population? Like is it necessary for countries to engage in a war where thousands of lives risk being lost? I try to avoid any political debates and discussions but it is hard to do so with all the channels out here.

My husband, on the other hand, loves to watch these shows so that he is able to relate the current events to other historical events (he reads a lot about international trade and politics).

I agree with you that politicians should inspire the people and not to push their opinion or principle onto the people. In my view right now, politicians are there for the power they can get and not empower the people they represent.

Yes, Olive that is the true position and the effect of this is that it tends to overshadow the few exceptional politicians who are out there doing their job, not only for those they represent but also for the greater population. Is the tone of our politics ever going to change?

I try to stay informed and in the loop, but sometimes politics just get so annoying to watch and listen to. Not many people are doing what they were selected to do, but those who are deserve more attention and space.

Not by a long shot. Everyone is using the word "change" when they are campaigning, but we get the same policies and agendas when these politicians are seated in power. I learn to live my life apart from what these politicians say and do or else I will get grumpy for the rest of my life.  :rofl:

You raise a good point Olive about living your life apart from the politicians’ rhetoric because despite their party positions, they all speak the same language. I think we should get to a point where everyone plays their part and lets everything else follow its course.

I try to stay away from political arguments and discussions. I want to stay informed enough to make informed decisions when I vote, but I really don't like how hateful people can be when discussing politics. It makes me sad to see.

I am with you on this, Layla. What is worse is that politics divides the family sometimes, speaking from experience. They are good politicians but they won't exceed the number of my fingers.

I made a similar topic about this issue. I abhor most of the politicians because they tell a lot of lies. They only think about their welfare. You know what, they are only friendly during campaign periods, and become snobbish or outright cruel when they are seated in power.

I stay on top of current events and legislation, but only to the point of knowing what's going on and then I turn it off. Watching or reading the news these days is a joke because most of it is opinion and no matter who you watch, they spin the information to fit their agenda. So, it's not only the politicians who are full of rhetoric! It's a sad, sad state of affairs.

I do a little, just up to trying to keep up with the latest but that is getting hard to do since everyone seems to keep changing. It can really consume you if you let it so I have backed off a bit.  They pretty much say what they think you want to hear or the majority anyway.
