In government, we’ve been working on political parties and I found out I’m a Democrat (no surprise there). But really, politics aren’t appealing to me. I know they’re important and what not, but it’s just so boring. I never understood why people try so hard to separate themselves even further in society; making cliques within cliques. This makes the country seem like one big high school; one big popularity contest after another. They separate themselves into these parties based on their principles of immigration, health care, criminal justice, etc.
But for 45 minutes a day for the past week, I had to pretend like I enjoyed politics and happily engaged in a mock campaign to help a fellow student get elected as president. We made a poster and slogan, and all that stuff, but the whole class never finished the assignment so I don’t know if I was a good campaign manager or whatever. And my teacher tore all the posters off the wall as if all the work we had done was pointless.
Bah, politics deeply upset me.
