Change my approach? I think its pretty cool that you started off at 14. No person in my school is political at all. They just say " I'll vote Republican my whole life." I want to earn votes, not just have them handed to me. Are you gonna go to college for political science? What do you hope to be when you grow up?ShamMol said:Well that makes sense now...I started off with politics at 14, trust me, you will change your approach soon.
I am 17, almost 18.
Yeah, by change your approach, i mean to include more logic, legal findings, facts, etc than you usually do, but this forum will help with that.satinloveslibs said:Change my approach?

when you are young, you tend to believe that, but when you get older you think that most people vote their pocket book. when you get wise, you realize that people vote their mind.Arch Enemy said:I'm actually 15.
I have the same problem Satin. The only things the people at my school cares about is getting doped up and acting like a moron.
I do have some friends who'd take me on with politics.. but I just crush them.. they have no facts to base them upon.
I am irritated with the whole idea that, I'd say, 85% of all Americans just vote for their political leader based on what their friends believe in.
Yes I get this all the freakin time. my parents are Republicans, but I know more about politics than they do. ( No offense parents) I only really talk politics with you guys and my liberal English teacher. I hear more of the dems side from her than the republicans side from my dad.V.I.

Also, hello Carolyn! Singapore, eh? Intresting.
Actually, they aren't. They're right wing conservatives.....i think i was adopted :mrgreen:(I'm sure V.I.'s parents aren't commies)
I don't think we are at odds with much comrade, and i explained my ideology in my "Greetings" thread in the "Come and Say Hi" forumanomaly said:I'm 17, and I'm also a self-described socialist. This gives me a chance to ask VI, what are we at odds at, concerning ideology? I'd love to discuss it. And no, my parents aren't socialists either. My whole family is liberal, and I'm much farther left than most of them.
Welcome! A republican and a green? What a broken home you must live in :mrgreen:Blackflagx said:I am 14. My dad is a republican and my mom is a green. And I am a communist! I was an anarchist but found holes in the theory. Now I am a council communist which really isnt much different. So yeah im far, far, left much more so than my parents. I oppose all participation in parliment and feel revolution to be the only way to communism. My high school sucks too. Im the only political student, well radical one anyway. So yeah, im under 18 and Im here.
