Politics is something that we can never escape.
It is always around us. Some of us just accept what we hear. Instead of actually looking deeper at the candidates and researching what they believe, we make up our minds on who we are voting for purely on what we hear about them from others. When I was younger I was one of those people.
I would just accept what was told to me, without researching if it was true or if it was logical. There is still something that I feel is always true when it comes to politics: people care more about if the candidate is “Right” or “Left” instead of what’s right and wrong.
It is for that reason that I take issues I feel strongly about such as terrorism, foreign policy, immigration, debt, the economy, gay rights, health care and social security. I look at these issues and I compare what the candidates believe and then choose which side I will support.
When people ask me which candidate I support and if I like the left or the right more, I tell them I don’t really care for politics. What I do care about is what is right and what is wrong.
I look at my values and I know that I don’t support abortion, the way healthcare has been changed and the war on terrorism. I also believe that we should create a competitive environment for businesses. These are just some of the things that I believe are right and wrong. I will choose which candidate to vote for based on how well they line up with my views on these issues.
