I Will Not Speak

I do have very strong views on many political subjects. That does not mean that I am "into" politics.  I do my research, I hold my ideas (and ideals) and vote accordingly.  Do I think about it much?  No. 

If the subject arises in a group setting, I will not speak.  Too many times I've seen a conversation about politics become a debate.  And those tend to get way too heated way too fast.  Feelings get hurt.  Punches may be thrown.  All because politics is one of the hottest topics known. 

So I don't go there.  I may listen, but I don't speak.
