I hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend. We have been battling ear infections and stomach bugs for the past week. But it was a great weekend nonetheless.
This year happens to be an important year in American politics. We have the honor of electing a new president. I usually don’t talk about politics (or religion for that matter). People are very set in their ways so I’d rather skip the arguments.
However, as an American citizen, I am trying to learn about each candidate and what they hope to accomplish. This is where I am coming up a tad short. Every time I tune into a debate, all I hear is one candidate tearing the other down. Obviously they are all vying for the nomination from their party. But at what cost.
I decided to look up the meaning of the word debate, thinking I misunderstood the term. This what it said on Merriam-Webster (a pretty reputable dictionary): a discussion between people in which they express different opinions about something.
Discussing different opinions I want to see. But all I see is people saying what the other person did wrong. I never really hear what they will try to do. I just want to make an informed decision. I don’t want a laundry list of what the other person didn’t do.
You will probably see few political posts from me. But, how do you all feel about the debates? Comment below!
