For those of you expecting a long, drawn-out post about my political views, I'm very sorry to disappoint. As most who are close to me know, I am not a follower of politics, and I only follow elections enough to know the basic political stances and viewpoints of the candidates. In short, I don't really like politics.
One of the main reasons I don't like politics is because I don't trust those involved in "upper" politics. I support the belief that in order to ascend into the national political realm, one cannot fully stay uncorrupted. Although I believe Barack Obama is an excellent candidate, I do not know him personally. I only know what he and his campaign have told me they believe. As for his soul, his actual personality and demeanor, I am completely clueless.
The ability and willingness of politicians to completely change tack as soon as it becomes beneficial for them is another justification for my distrust of politics. How can two people who exhibit such malice toward each other suddenly become the best of friends when a vote decides which one will progress?
I realize that I am relatively uneducated when it comes to politics, but that's because I choose to stay in a state of "ignorant" bliss. I know enough about the system to stay away from the hoopla and hype surrounding the whole process.
