Well, it doesn't run my life, but it does play a significant role. I say as long as it has good intentions and no good people will face harm or punishment, do whatever makes you happy. People are so offended by everything today. My generation has no good role models, and Obama ruined our chances. So when we go into the work force, we're screwed.
Everybody is a fan somehow to have the freedom and rights we have
Their are benefits of politics but is only fun-ish if you can determine the bad from good.
I am a fan of politics; I am NOT a fan of politicizing.
Interesting but, evil
Not a fan. However, I am knowledgable.
This is our responsibility as Americans.
Politics can be so hateful. Just pay attention to campaign season. Democrats & Republicans just bash each other endlessly and it's so hypocritical. Republicans accuse Obama of stuff Bush did and Democrats blame Bush for things Obama is doing.
And some people are so ignorant to believe that politics is an argument you can and will win (my dad) but some people are interesting to debate with because they're intellectual and know something. It's funnier than hell to see my dad & aunt (his
sister) argue politics. She knows when to quit and he doesn't. And he ends up looking dumb. If my sister is up from Pittsburgh, my brother in law or I will jump in. lol
Politics doesn't just exist on the national, state, and local level...it is usually a part of every workplace as well, forming a hidden agenda.
How can you be a fan of something that doesn't exist?
You have no basis for claiming it doesnt exist
I am a fan of following what goes on. But I'm not a fan of the way things are going. Basically 2 parties have a stranglehold on everything so all they try to do is bash the other party since they are the only other choice. No good ideas needed.
There are minority parties- libertarian, green, communist- that nobody pays attention to because they are too focused on the two main ones.
Used to be a fan, til I realized that the bright people are not in the govt
Hate politics, as the media runs it! But I vote every time. Can't complain and not vote!
Politics is a game as its a drama.It's part of the American way.Unfortunately, it its overshadowed by corruption, lack of integrity & self-serving motivation.You cannot give up otherwise the system fails & YOU become the cause instead of the solution
I say we rejoin with England.
Good thing you ain't the president
Idot, udot, we all dot!
Jommyb - You're hilarious.
What's with the question mark Lebron, I'm sure we all got it. You set yourself up for that one when you couldn't write idiot correctly.
Keep up the humor Jommyb !
"You may not have an interest in politics, but politics have an interest in you."-Pericles
fan - it warms my blood on cold mornings. disgust, incredabilities, fear, humor, outright laughter, stupidity, wisdom, sex, death, rock&roll ... politics has all the effects of human emotion.
Having a civil discussion about current events and topics = fan. Hearing about the LOSERS from the Dem & Rep party and their corrupt sleaze ball candidates = not a fan
Fan of politics in general, just not the American bipartisan crap
I probably wouldn't mind politics if it didn't involve politicians.
It would be nice if they could play less games and get more done.
"Politics" get in the way of governing this country. Currently politics are who can lie the best and who can get away with more. Who can keep the job longer etc.
Dems are using RACE to win the election. Anyone of them that used race in their commercials should be put in jail for public endangerment.
Saying Democrats use race to win elections is the same as saying Republicans use guns or Christianity to win elections
you're both right. Unfortunately
Politics may not interest you, but they will always take an interest in you.
The only problem is how the American political system comes down to who appeases their corporate sponsors better and who the corrupt rich people like more :/
I am of cry
I'm a fan of the idea, but the execution in the United States leaves a lot to be desired for me.
"Fan" is the wrong word. I am fascinated by it and participate out of necessity but it's depressing far more often than not. Looks likely that I'll be pretty sad for the country come Wed morning.
Not a fan. It seems to bring the worst out in people.
Not a fan, at least here in the US where politics seems to be all about those with the money and not about the interests of the majority at all.
I think 54 percent of people are on the wrong app....
I don't use SOH as a political app. I vote the political questions, but they are not the ones that interest me the most.
Politics makes the world go 'round. Without politics how would each of us know where we stand? We might as well be robots.
I don't need politics or politicians to know where I stand on anything. I'm think for myself.
I think you're talking about philosophy, Spiritof76. Another topic I love. :)
Yes, politics is everywhere, not just in government.
Question: Is SkeetSkeet****
(1) a disgusting "conservative" troll stupidly posing as African American trying to make them look bad, or
(2) a disgusting "liberal" cleverly posing as a disgusting "conservative" troll trying to make them look bad?
At least we know he is a phony!
yous dudes is the phonies ima real black man and ur a racist if you dont wanna hear what i gotsta say
not a fan of all the mud slinging which is what most of it seems to be these days
When I look at a D and a R candidate the first thought to cross my mind is which is the lesser of 2 evils. Very sad system we have
If you were actually into politics you would see. One political party helps people that do nothing but smoke weed all day. And the other party wants to help america as a whole.
Yeah, the third partiers and independents want to help this country. The democrats suck and the republicans only give lip service.
Republicans might as well be Koch brothers employees, dems might as well be "good people" but just doing it wrong when they vote based on their campaign donations.
Politics is messed up, but I do derive some excitement from it, and everyone who is well informed needs to participate.
white people are obsessed with politics
That's not racist at all....
Political, he's a republican who is on a troll account.
I know you are.
politics is bullshit im still waiting for my reparations you foos still owe me for slavery
What's my username?
Watching politicians talk makes me feel like a natural genius!
The thing is that I feel for politicians. They're usually lawyers with heavy degrees from Ivy League colleges. The hard part is dumbing it down for the American people to understand legal jargon.
I hardly think they speak in legal jargon, at least not the successful ones. To the contrary, I think most of them speak fluent rhetoric, largely in sound-bites.
I may run for office one day. My classical archaeology degree may provide an interesting perspective on international politics, along with an actual political science degree.
You should read this article about a journalist running for Congress www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/10/mr-miller-doesnt-go-to-washington-112173.html?hp=pm_1#.VFZgrIg8KrU
It gives you some insight to what it's really like.
TomM, good article. Running for office is about fundraising, when it should be about continual public debates on issues.
Agree. I knew, but this article just paints it out in details. It's also well written in my opinion.
If there's one thing I hate about this app is how some users turn every poll into politics and Obama bashing.
That is what you do!
It's easy to bash the schit out of Obama, bc there r literally thousands of examples bc he is such a horrible leader. By the way he is not 1st black pres. He is only half black.
Ok until I saw this I was doubting the whole "Scotty is a liberal pretending to be conservative thing". Now I see him bashing Obama all the time and saying this, I think I'm convinced.
u just dont like obama cause he black
^ Conservative Troll
Game plan by libs- when u have lost just start calling others racist, bigots, sexist, homophobes etc.
u teabaggers r racists i hear u guys call him a nigger all the time
I hate politics.
If you are using this app, I would think you would be a fan.
No, I am mostly interested in the non-political polls on this app.
This is terrible for virtually all Americans. Except the super wealthy who buy off politicians who then make loopholes for their $$ donors.
Can you give one example of that happening? Just Curious...
Start with Barney frank on the housing committee or whatever it is called setting all those terrible housing policies that contributed greatly to housing collapse
How about tax loopholes that make 0 sense. But some donor paid big$ to buy off politicians
#3 - Obama with solyndra. Was his buddies
The Koch Brothers, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerburg, the Clinton family, and other examples. There are many corporations, groups, government agencies that too do it. Kind of like Goldman sacs, La Raza, SEIU, the Federal Reserve, and many more.
Obama phone- his friend runs the cell phone program in turn he make tons of $$$$
In my state our governor was pushing giving all students a computer. His friends opened the computer company. Disgraceful. Luckily it did not pass.
Shall I keep going NAJ? Or do get the point
Jabs you must be a fellow green partier!
Hopefully one day we can get our law passed to end all corporate funding for campaigns.
Nah, I'm just for the truth. I do respect the Green Party more than I would with republicans and democrats. I lean more libertarian but I have some issues that cross the political spectrum. For ex. The GP is for banning drones and I agree with that.
There should be a cap for campaign donations with no loopholes in it. It is really ridiculous to see Tillis and Hagan to spend millions in NC to control a seat in the senate that is not really going to make a difference.
This user is currently being ignored
Telling that crowd that he was born in Hawaii didn't help either. None of them knew it was a state.
Yeah... Why would anyone have questions when Barry Seotoro has a Connecticut SSN and was raised a Muslim in Indonesia.
That's the tea party conspiracy theory. Look it up, it's like a comedy skit.
And yes, it's just as insane as it sounds.
I'm talking about the truth Nik.
Like rotavele said. Look it up. It's the truth.
Cowboys last few polls have TopRightWingNews.com as the source of his information. He labels democrats as communists and believes schools/Colleges are here to brainwash children to be liberals.
Just some background on the source of this information.
Or look at my recent poll that says "meet your real President"
And rotavele wants all Christians killed by ISIL.
His "meet your president" is a YouTube video named "Obama banned this video, gee I wonder why" and it has 11 million views.
It has escaped obamas banning from the republican YouTube taking a stand for the tea party.
Then stay ignorant. I'm just trying to inform you. I thought you could have an open mind. That's my fault.
If you want to learn of the theory though I'd suggest a non biased source such as the Wikipedia one. It's hard to not be biased on something so bat shit, but they somehow did.
Lol... Wikipedia. Are you even trying anymore? You must too many accounts to juggle around.
I pretty sure Wikipedia is biased.
obama is a proud black muslim like me if you dont like that you must be a racist
Your from Alaska now rotavele? Lol
If you went to college, you'd know how to avoid bias on Wikipedia. You check the source... *facepalm*
cowboy ur a bigot
Look at that guys stereotypical black profile pic when he made a fake account. That's like George Wallace himself calling you a bigot.
rotovele u little homo dont make me slap you cross the face wit my big black dick
People should be more respectful on this app. You sir, are obviously someone who trying to provoke divide and conquer on the comments. Your profile is not a honest one, SSN.
I pretty sure that one of the few rules on Soh were not to have profanity in the username. You are a fraud.
I have no idea where Obama was born. But after "you can keep your doctor" and "Benghazi riot was a spontaneous response" to a video and so so many more lies I have no doubt Obama is totally capable and willing to lie about where he was born.
In order to be considered an American citizen, an individual must either be born within the United States or have been born to an American citizen. Guess what! Obama's mom is an American citizen! Guess what! Obama is an American citizen!
Then why does Barry have a Connecticut SSN?
u a fraud foo
His social security number doesn't matter. His mother is an American citizen therefore he is.
Sure he is... His mother was a slut.
That doesn't change the fact that he's an American citizen... Get over it, cowboy.
No he's not. The evidence of his SSN says as much.
It doesn't matter about anything else. He was born from an American citizen. That is all that matters. Get. Over. Your. Mega-boner. For. Barry. I don't like him (AT ALL) either but at least in smart enough to realize that jus sanguinus is enough.
Oh yeah. You real don't like Barry... Lol.
You don't know me or what or who I like so don't act like you do.
I know that you're one of many ignorant Americans that denies the facts. What else do I need to know?
You really love Barry, don't you?
Love it. I really want to be involved.
You'd make George Bush look like Gandhi.
He'd be more like Gandhi actually. Civilization V Gandhi.
Politics isn't a sport. As in, my team beats yours! It's about fighting for what YOU believe in. And supporting the candidate that best represents your concerns for the country.
Politics is a sport for ugly people. Lol!
