Well it has been crazy lately with college starting and everything! Today, I got my first dose of politics in a long time(since like 4 days ago)…I saw a little bit of the RNC convention while I was cycling at the gym, Chris Christie was speaking at the time. I completely forget what he said but I remember he got me thinking about something that got me thinking about something….let me tell you about that something.
This is something you see with parties and I just don’t like it too much. Why do political campaigns, specifically national, feel the need to focus and campaign to one specific group…for example: women, minorities,the middle class, etc….It gets annoying after a while. Like right now the big push is women, Obama is basically trying to convince people Romney hates women and Romney people are trying to show women that they should love him(like in his wifes speech at the convention). Why can’t you campaign to all of American all of the time? Yes. I get it. You want some votes. In reality, all of the issues affect all of us in some way.
I think if you just campaign to all of America and stick to the issues…you’ll end up getting more respect from everyone if they like your ideas, you will have no need to stand up for yourself to specific groups if you just stand up to everyone and tell it like it is.
Anyways, things are going to get more heated and interesting as we get closer to the election. Some exciting news: I should be starting a radio show here on campus with WGMU! I’ll keep you updated on that and everything else!
