It’s interesting… there’s people like my parents who are so anti-Obama that anything he does - good or bad - is automatically HORRIBLE in their minds. Then there’s people like my friend who are so anti-everyonebutRonPaul that anything anyone else does - good or bad - is automatically HORRIBLE in their mind. Both are similar in that they don’t necessarily base their view of things on facts yet both decry the other for not doing so!
As for me, I don’t idolize or worship a party or a candidate. I try, at least, to take what information I have, research it, and come to a conclusion on my own. Sometimes it’s really difficult and time-consuming but until I have done so, I try to say “No comment, I don’t know enough” when something comes up. Assuredly, I am not perfect but that is what I always try to do.
