10 Quick Tips About Politics

  1. Don’t harass people.
  2. Don’t take it too seriously.
  3. Don’t force people to adopt what you feel is right.
  4. Don’t shout, especially if the person you’re talking to is standing right in front of you.
  5. Turn off the television once in a while because everyone needs a break from bullshit.
  6. Formulate your own opinion but be open-minded about what other people might want to share. After they’ve finished, don’t feel compelled to tell them whether you agree or not.
  7. Vote, even if you don’t feel like it. Vote at the local level, at the state level, and at the federal level. If you want to make a difference instead of wasting away your life, then voting could help you fill that void.
  8. Feel free to question the intentions and motivations of a particular network or individual.  It helps in deciphering whether something should be taken seriously or is worth considering.
  9. Everything that is currently being discussed in the mainstream media has already been discussed (many, many times before). Most people are simply not aware that things get recycled every 5-10 years, mostly during congressional and presidential elections.
  10. When it comes to the affairs of other nations, mind your own business. It’s only logical for American citizens to be concerned about American politics. But when it comes to telling people of other nations what to do with their government or how to run their societies, that’s an entirely different matter. You wouldn’t want some stranger telling you how to take a dump, raise your children, or live your life. Right?
