I posted this somewhere within a thread but I thought it was something worth repeating.
Recently, I was at a bonfire with some people. Next to me there was a guy who I knew had opposing political view points. I took this opportunity to start a political conversation. Not a debate mind you, but an actual conversation.
It's really amazing how much information you get about a person's beliefs if you just let them talk and not constantly debate. I took issues that I believe are wrong and I asked him to explain why he thought they were right. For two opposing view points we actually agreed on a lot of things.
My request is that you MiceChatters go out and do the same. I think too many people are getting opinions of politics from TV and the internet, I think that is wrong. I find that most people you see on TV are usually outspoken and don't really represent a majority of the party. If you actually sit down and talk to someone, you will get so much more clarity about the issues. I also request to keep the conversation civil, no debating, we have enough of that nowadays.
If its anything like my experience, you will walk away feeling truly enlightened.
Good night, and good luck.
