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.

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.
