So one of my friend's saw that I had an Obama pin on my bag. She started flipping out with a group of people, because they think that McCain is better. I explained to her that I like Obama better, because the Democratic party is more inclusive of minorities and promotes civil rights compared to the GOP.
Then, I elaborated on the Civil Union issue with the Democratic Party and the GOP. She practically killed me. "Civil Unions allow inheritance to be taxed on the federal level, they have to file taxes jointly... blah blah blah." What she doesn't understand is that fact that civil rights take time. It's not gonna happen all at the same time. I mean look at religious freedom, they moved to a new continent and made their own colony!
Why can't she just respect my political views? I don't bash her for supporting the GOP and not fully understanding their politics.
I hate partisan politics -,-
We need a reformation of the political system.
Multi party democracy works so much better...
