As you know, I try to avoid the three evils on my blog as much as possible.
I mean, nothing gets a rise out of a person quicker than a heated debate religion, politics or sex. No pun intended; just stating a fact.

Although, my husband says that my youngest son Steven and I can’t be in the same room together for more than two minutes without starting a heated discussion (argument) about one of them, its usually always politics. With him being a scorching liberal and me (in his words) a crazed conservative.

He shocked me this year by being furious with me for refusing to vote for Ron Paul, because of his advanced years. I do respect the man, and would love to see him as someone’s advisor, but not trying to see how long he can live, holding the highest off ice in the land, without some kind of dementia from setting in. Maybe that’s just me?

Most teens want him elected since he’s for legalizing drugs. Now, I just want to have Steven drug tested. But seriously, Steven can recite more of his life, probably than he can. I chose Mitt Romney from the start, for my own reasons, and my feelings toward him haven’t changed. That being said…

Basically, we cancel each other out. This isn’t about me or my family, any political agenda, nor do I even want to start that conservation.  It’s just something to ponder.

How politically informed do you try to be? This isn’t a question about anyone’s politics, just about how much you keep up with political events (e.g., the Iowa Republican caucus). Is it something that interests you, or not so much? Are there certain websites you frequent to get information about issues/candidates?
