You're kidding, right?

Have you ever noticed who Democrats go after? Those from other countries that know nothing about the country? ... school children to protest after the Parkland shooting? ... everything is filtered through racial issues?

Democrats absolutely need poorly educated or low information people. Heck - they don't even need for them be alive.

I wish I was apolitical. Pretty sure life would be much easier and my blood pressure would be much lower

Iím not apolitical, but I am a lot happier now that I donít pay much attention to the news and social media. As a bonus, I have extra time to hone what I myself find important, and it turns out itís not much like what either the Demicans or the Republicrats care about.

Absolutely not....apolitical means you have little intrest in politics. Many independents and moderates are very involved politically and spenda lot of time thinking about the issues. BEcause they agree with one side on some things or the other side on other things or find themselves in a viewpoint somewherer in beweeen does NOT make them apolitical, Quite the opposite in many cases. I'm not sure the term is being used properly here outside of a few posts.

I never align with people who pressure me. Period. There are consequences for this choice, however.
