Am I the only politically ignorant person out there?

I see posts in the Political and Current Events sections all the time, I find it immensely confusing, and often find myself asking who the heck is that? Where is that going on at? How do these people find stuff like that out? The only thing that stays consistent is that I seriously give myself a headache trying to figure it all out. I don't feel that I'm an idiot, I've lived a pretty eventful life, learned a lot of lessons.....am I the only one that feels like that? How worried should I be about politics and current events? (I'm all caught up on what's going on in my own little town, but government has always given me a headache)

  • Lol! You know, politics really interest lots of people. They wanna know about their government, what's going on in the world, etc. I want to know what's going on in the world but overall, politics don't interest me in the slightest.

  • You're not alone mama, I know nothing as well and after seeing what goes down in the political section of this website, I'm happy not to know.

  • no, you aren't. i would have to say I am politically ignorant too. I think I just live in my own little world, I guess I should care, but in politics there is too much mudslinging, lying going on for me to be too interested. I just wish they would learn to work together.

  • I love politics and feel I stay on top of it real well considering the fact that there are alot of politicians (some well known) on husbands side of the family. I stay away from the politics on cafemom because they're ruthless, however very bright ladies. They obviously spend alot of time watching the news and reading the paper, hats off to them. Sometimes keeping up with poltics in our city/state is enough to rattle the brain let alone thge country.

  • Don't feel bad, I don't keep up with the politics either, Every once in a while, I may read an article in the paper. I think that's why I don't really like to watch the news. I know we should be more involved, but I just don't choose to dedicate my life to it.
