I guess I just don't get it. I see so many people get worked up about politics and policy. Angry to the point of insulting others and pure rage.
I can understand a vested interest, but why do people let themselves get so embroiled into politics that they feel that slinging insults back and forth is the least bit productive or healthy? And why is it that people are expected to fit into a particular niche?
This is a serious question, for the record. I don't get it. I see people's stress levels go through the roof on seemingly a daily basis on ES, in the news, in the real life and I can't understand for the life of me why people do that to themselves.
Although, now that I'm thinking about it, I guess we as football fans kind of do something similar. We dislike other teams. We get upset when our team loses. A lot of us defend our team to the finish, even when our team is clearly in the wrong. So while being a fan and being involved in politics are similar, I still wouldn't qualify them as being the same.
