I've been at the point in my life for a while now where I'd rather do something about a problem or cause than talk about it. I just keep it to myself for the most part.

I think you and I were "arguing" in EYKIW once and I dropped that quote on you.

Never a bad time for that.

I agree. It amuses me that all these people are talking politics, campaigns, etc. Yet they're never out on the streets, making phone calls, connecting with voters. At least not that they talk about.

I don't talk about politics among my friends or family, so for me it's really the only option I have aside from the rare school debate (had one last week in which I called religious reasoning for law "anti-intellectual" ).

In fact, when my mom found out I was liberal a few months ago, she said, "Well, don't discuss politics with my brothers then."

I just feel that FYM is internet flypaper for douchebags. So it's douchepaper if you will.

My HS was a different sort of place, so, we debated all sorts of shit all the time, and that's where I started to become inquisitve/active politically, and for causes that hit home for me. Granted, as I grew older and perhaps busier, my efforts ran more towards financial support than time and effort, but, I still believe in taking action and not babbling for hours on end about the same.....fucking.....issues.

That's the sort of place I'm in: becoming politically interested and aware.

I lurk in FYM for the most part. But my favourite FYM post in a long time was when someone said, and I paraphrase: "When George W. Bush is gone, God help us all." After the initial shock of reading that wore off, I couldn't help but laugh hysterically.
