Do you guys discuss politics with your co-workers? I discuss the race results and follow the people movements and the scandals but I don't touch the topics. I don't have a lot of the same viewpoints even of people in my own party anymore, so when I hear how pissed off the blue-collar workers are. I just don't engage or jump on that bandwagon. Plus I've lived a very different life than they did.

I'm more pro-establishment and its hard to find anyone who agrees with me in real life. What about you?

I don't dare discuss my politics with my coworkers, whom are mostly liberal.

I only talk politics with guys that I trust with my life, or well being, when I am off the Debate Politics website. Golf buddies, and fishing buddies.

I have always been quite interested in the opinions of people around me. This has been in business as well as social situations and have discussed political issues and policy a lot. My work has always been closely connected to these areas, though.
