I have a degree in political science, have always been interested in politics, most of my friends were political people. Since I have graduated and gotten a psuedo-job, (working on a non-psuedo-job) I have noticed I have been liveing in a bubble. I have come across a few general classes of people when it comes to politics. 1)The Involved: People who care and talk about issues no matter what ideology. (that's most of us here) 2) The Indifferent: the people that don't care about anything one way or the other 3) The Defensive: the people you can't debate about anything for no other reason then they are afraid of confrontation. This is the group I have the biggest problem with. This group isn't big into politics, but do have a couple stances, however they don't debate because they view any disagreement as a personal attack and don't want to offend. 4)The Sheep: Those that say they have a position, but haven't thought about it much and can't defend it. My observation has been that they seem to just think what is cool at the time. These are just observations from life experiences, feel free to comment.
