2010 Political Season

Today, when you talk about political parties you mainly hear of the Republicans and the Democrats. These two parties often have opposing viewpoints, and they each control a large part of our politics. Because these two political parties have opposing viewpoints, it is seemingly unfair for one of these parties to control our politics. Today, it appears that the democrats control our politics. This large control of one party is unfair to the people of the other side. It is necessary that the people have equal representation and that is clearly not the case here. However, this can all change soon.
All throughout the states, there will be elections held for seats in the Senate, House, and also there will be gubernatorial races to come in the coming two weeks. All these elections can have a dramatic shift on the political orientation of our country. Republicans are looking to take control of more and more positions, and in the process kick Democrats out of office. But what indication is there that there may be this shift? A look at a recent Associated Press report shows us multiple reasons.
It says that due to the largely unpopular policies of the President, and the incapability of Congress to do something productive, people are fearing that are nation may go into a deeper hole than it already is in. As a result, people are looking for change again, and can do so by electing Republicans. Experts say that this may very well happen. Democrats have already conceded some races and are looking to only savage others. They are becoming more and more desperate. This is a perfect time for Republicans to pounce and take back control of what they once had. Once they do that they can work on the things that Democrats were unable to do and as a result do what the people want. That is to improve our great nation.

Political Introduction

     We live in a world that is all about politics. May it be your local city politics, or the politics in a distant nation; we all have our own opinions. These opinions are what fuel our beliefs of these immense and often overwhelming topics. But however complex each of these topics in politics are, our core beliefs are what define them. It is important to be aware of the multiple topics in politics all over the world to get a true understanding of what is going on globally. We need to know what is going on all over the world and not always thinking about ourselves. This global mindset is what we need to achieve. When discussing political ideas, it is necessary to accommodate a global viewpoint because what is best for us is not always best for all. However strong your core beliefs are, you must always be able to sometimes go against these beliefs to look at the greater good. We are all at fault with this. It is challenging to do this, but I will admit that I am at fault for this as well. Going forward I will respect all the topics being discussed. I will address multiple viewpoints and thorough explanations behind the reasoning of a topic. I will also include my own opinions to compare with those of other people. I cordially invite you to discuss these topics of politics that I will address in the near future.
