Today I had and eye opening conversation with a Youngman in his twenty's on the subject of Politics and how to understand them, without getting over heated. Having just completed a conversation with another on a political position.

I looked at him and began to explain the following and (for anyone who would care to know, feel free to keep reading). Look first very closely at yourself as to the views you have and hold dear on touches subjects. But before you do understand, you do not have to be all of the way to the Left or to the Right on any of them. It can be as simple as setting the tone on a radio.(YOUR SWITCH from tone to base) Here are the things we find hard for some to understand as to why we may feel strongly on one subject over another.

Right side is RED - Conservative points of view.
Left side is Blue - Liberal points of view.

Now open your thinking cap and ask where you stand on a point of view and where you alien your, own points of view. More tone or more base.

Far Right is hard to have any open point of view and the same with the far Left. Both can be OK, if you feel strongly about that point view and that is you.

Subject: Birth Control has many view points, But the question is do you know where you stand and so on with each topic.
Capital Punishment; censorship; Evolution; LAW; Patriotism; Theism Meaning, GOD; Communism; Treatment of Criminals; War; Most of the above are for some HOT topics. But if you can look deep into yourself and ask where you stand on each without moving.

A Liberal, feels the government should control your life from birth to death and you should have little to say or think as the government will provide your need. It required you to think less and let the government think for your best personal welfare. This is life as a socialist.

A Conservative, feels you should speck for yourself and have control over you own life. Pay your own bills and be responsible for your own actions. It requires you to think more about what is or is not in your life. This is life without socialism.

Do not tell me what you think or don't think as I have my own points of view on all of the above and where I stand is not the point. This is only a tool for you to know yourself. Each person is different and no two people have the exact same total points of view in all areas of life. This is called your opinion and an example as to how to find your opinions faster as to your points of view.

Understand, some people will want to fight with you, if your opinion is not aliened the same. This is only to help you!, think and understand yourself.

One thing I did say and wish I could explain the point. My Quote was (A Liberal, feels the government should control your life from birth to death and you should have little to say or think as the government will provide your need. It required you to think less and let the government think for your best personal welfare. This is life as a socialist.) Now my point here came from the Statement on Health Care "Pass it and you can read the bill then" Truly" we should have read the Bill. Now to kick the conservative's, I am so unhappy they will start an issue(s) time and time again, only to give in. Why state the Bill, if you can not stand by it. I also do not like attachments to bills and that should be removed. I do not like back room deals or pay offs for anyone's district because of a change in position. TRUE, we do not have a perfect system but in the world today it is the best. We should never add another parity as two are having a hard time as it is. Words will set some people into orbit and sound off alarms and the message is lost before it starts. Two Words "Birth Control" as some refuse to here anything more. But this one subject is all over the table. Some fill at conception, others after 18 days when the heart starts and its a life then to them. others up to the point of Birth. Where ever you are on the issue, all I'm am saying know the others points of view and now your position to combat what you don't like. Your voice is what I seek, how can we fix problems if you do not understand all of the points of the issue.

That's it as I hope you can learn more about yourself and your own views as I try to stay as objective as I can. How would you explain the positions, truly I would like to know? Thanks for your time.
