In politics why do people have to respond to others ideas so negatively!? You can still quash another’s ideas through careful thought, use of fact/logic, and kindness. Not that the idea is to quash others opinions, but discussing politics is about educating each other on problems that afflict today’s world, while also providing potential solutions.
In the meantime, from my plane ride down, this priceless quote from an RNC attendee on the same plane:
I think energy independence is what will really free America from the shackles of the Middle East.
Riiiiight, because so many Middle Eastern nations oppress America and bomb us every day.
People respond pretty angrily when you post stuff quickly and without thought, i’ve done this before and received negative responses.
We are indeed reliant on foreign oil, including oil from OPEC countries this makes us slaves to their price scheme. From a business sense too if OPEC gives a certain price per barrel other oil companies will follow suit which kind of cans the idea of free market in the US.
