politics don’t define me

I’ve never been extremely into politics. I know the basics and I know how I feel about major issues.

However, politics do not define who I am as a person. The person I vote for is not a perfect reflection of who I am. There is so much more to me than the politics I believe in and the person I agree with the most.

A few nights ago, I went out with a bunch of people, most of whom I had never met before. I was trying to make conversation with a few of the guys that I didn’t know, but they wouldn’t get beyond who I was voting for. I told them it was personal, and that they didn’t need to know.

The next sentences out of one of their mouths absolutely disgusted me:

But I can tell everything about you by who you are voting for. I’ll know absolutely everything about you if you tell me who you are voting for.

I could not believe it. To think that who I’m voting for defines everything about me… it’s an appalling concept.

    I agree with you– I have friends who are voting for McCain and friends that are voting for Obama and in some cases they are very similar people.
