Discussing Politics Seems To Bring Out The Worst In People
I have discovered one truth when it comes to discussing politics, it tends to bring out the worst in people. I will admit that I can be fairly closed minded at times when it comes to posting articles and discussing politics. I am both socially and fiscally conservative and will never apologize for my beliefs. However, I have been known to apologize to people for being harsh in the way that I respond to given situations.
One pet peeve of mine is when someone who is obviously closed minded themselves accuses me of being unreasonable and close minded because I refuse to bend to their views and opinions. Imagine how boring life would be if everyone agreed about everything all the time. I will never pretend to be something I am not and I will hold all bureaucrats regardless of party affiliation responsible when they screw up.
With that said, I will not put blame where I don't see it fits just because someone else thinks I should. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but it does not make me wrong just their views differ from mine. It also does not make me close minded when I don't change my view to match theirs.
