Do you believe teens have an overall good understanding of politics and government policies?
Some of them
Yeah they got a good grasp on the revisionist history they been taught.
Not all teens. Just spend one class period in a high school government class. They are often misinformed or clueless.
In general, nationwide? No. Here on SoH? Wow, yes.
In general? No. Are there exceptions? Yes. This app is an example.
I thought teens had a good grip on politics when I was a teenager. Gratefully, age has given me a better perspective (& understanding)!
Not even many adults have an accurate understanding.
Ain't that the truth.
That was my first thought. Like are we talking in general or relative to the averaged dim witted adult
Most teens, no. Teens on SOH, yes.
Not that many of them
I stand with all teens in this app when I say I beg to differ Scott
You're allowed to differ
What proof do you have that most teens on Soh don't know much about politics?
Matt, you're more intelligent than that. What proof do you think I could possibly provide?
Just as you have no proof to support the opposite.
True, there are some users that are very intelligent and some not. But then why me a claim like that?
What's wrong with "not that many of them"?
In theory nothing, I'm just not sure that is accurate for the app
Haha! Sorry political. No. If teens are politically active, they are heavily liberal because of what the public education system jams down their throat. They have no concept of consequences. Of course, this isn't all, but buy in large, most don't.
I completely agree!
So they're not liberal because they have gay friends, believe a women should choose what to do with her own body, or believe weed should be legal? LOL geez, you guys will never win elections until you admit your social polices SUCK.
You may be rambling just a bit Abolitionist.... Is that suppose to be directed at Derek?
Yeah. How is that rambling? Conservatives blame media, teachers, RINOS, and everything else but never admit maybe they are the reason they are losing elections. I never seen a party of personal responsibility never take responsibility.
Ummm... I have gay friends, it's not her body, and I fully support legalizing weed. I'm FAR from a liberal.
I actually thought you were responding to Cowboy...
Right . It's gods body. Lol I'm just letting you joke why GOP is losing the young vote. It's social issues, period. Young people don't miss the 1950s like most of fox viewers so they're rejecting a party that acts like they want to "take US back"
Joke = know
Most teens, nope. Some teens, for sure!
I think the ones on SOH have the same understanding as the adults. I love how active, knowledgable, and interested the youngins on here about the country.
Hell no. That's why Obama is always speaking to college kids. They're ignorant, and therefore, potential Democrat voters. Kids don't know what's best for themselves, let alone the US.
I'm never surprised by the stupid shit you post anymore.
What's so stupid about it?
Because you dismiss every college kid because Obama carries the young vote. They aren't voting for him but most are voting against social conservatism. How does that make them ignorant? A lot of kids in college are the most political ppl in America
The question says "overall", not all. Maybe try to read the question before getting all emotional about Obama's ignorant base. We all know Obama loves politically involved college kids. Especially people, like his bomb throwing friend, Bill Ayers from the Weather Underground, and other anti-American
It's not Obama, it's SOCIAL policies. Kerry's stupid ass carried the same demographic. You have such a personal problem w Obama that you look at everything thru an obama is communist lense. Maybe young kids aren't ignorant as old ppl who miss the 50s
You're only making my case for me. I know that its anti-American, Socialist/Communist policies, kids love. They're ignoramuses. That's my whole point. What better role than a terrorist sympathizer, like Barack Hussein Obama?
Lol I think I do, but most kids in my school couldn't tell you who the VP was
Same at my school!
Teens on SOH? Yes. Average American teen? Haha, no.
No! I conducted a poll today. I asked do you prefer Obamacare or the Affordable Healthcare Law. Only 2 people answered they are the same thing.
This was at my school! I may ask some teachers tomorrow!
Wow, that's not a good sign.
Nope! I have 0 tallies under the Obamacare column. Lol
I thought you asked that as in, "Which do you prefer?"
Obamacare sounds derogatory. I've only heard it used by those who don't like the ACA.
Here in Cali, the teens not only have a good understanding, they are active!
I wish that was the case in my state.
Well get the word out! And stay away from feaux news and places like breaitbart. You should be alright.
And you stay away from MSNBC and Al Sharpton!
Why? MSNBC is quality news and Al Sharpton does wonderful things for the African American community!
Lulled to sleep, hey liberal?
