I was speaking to a friend last night about the debt ceiling and other recent political events and she said "one of the problems with our society is that, it is politically incorrect to speak about politics and because of this most people are uninformed. This is why we have let our country go down the drain."
Do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Do not agree
People dont care enough and dont feel like it directly affects them or that they can AFFECT it....so they ignore it

I would have to partially agree with it. I also think one of the problems is that many people only get their information from one source. Discussion is important, IMO, to at least get another point of view even if you don't agree with it. I don't know that it's politically incorrect to speak about politics, but it can be a passionate subject for some where others might just be turned off by it. I have some super conservative members of my family that won't even listen to another point of view (and that's coming from a moderate conservative). If you even so much as suggest something that isn't in line with their thinking you are ridiculed. I won't even bother to discuss politics with these people. Nor will I discuss with those that are so liberal they aren't willing to listen to another POV.
