Well, if you a political person, you could be paying attention to so many sociopolitical issues that can effect your work performance. You know, biting off more than you can chew.

Trump just said what every politician believes. They rely on the collective stupidity of the nation to gobble up all of the BS that they tell everyone. Its Democrats and Republicans, and even 3rd party candidates. The nation is too dumb to distill truth from politics.

I'm apolitical (anarchist) because I have been paying attention.

I hope someday you will know the difference between education and wisdom. The lost sometimes don't know they are lost until it is too late.

How is a viewpoint on apolitical people a partisan strategy? Someone who is apolitical by definition has no or very little intrest in politics. It may be because they are disgusted with the level of discourse of their politics, because they are'ny "paying attention" or are truly not interested. How is that a talking point for either party? Am I missing something?

I think people who don't know too much about politics may knee jerk from apolitical to Democrat/progressive/leftist because it's where the action is.

I also think people who switch from apolitical to politically educated will be Republican/conservative/right leaning because it makes more sense.

What do you think?
Maybe you have been paying attention, and you just hate both sides.

Republicans love the poorly educated.
Democrats love the ovis aries.

This swaps around every few decades...

If you don't fully agree with either party's platform, does that make you apolitical? Or just thoughtful? I like to think that being a moderate/independent requires more careful reasoning. It's easy to be a wing-nut: just blindly follow the creed.
