Google's Congress Hearing
#3
It's honestly kinda unfortunate. I hate to get into political topics because everyone has different viewpoints, and the last thing I want to do is to come across as offensive to anybody. I consider myself to be very much middle-of-the-road in a lot of respects, and over the past few years, there has probably been more polarization and more tension between the left and the right than there has been in a long time.

For the record, I'm a registered Republican, but I don't think that I could honestly get behind too many of the republicans that are in office anymore. I personally didn't vote for Trump for a variety of reasons, but one of the main reasons was largely because I have quite a few Hispanic friends, and his rhetoric towards the Latino culture has been regarded as a little on the insensitive side, to say the least. For me, and for the fact that I know so many people in the Hispanic community, it was too bothersome for me to overlook. I don't think that it's right, personally.

Trump has, however, done some things right too. The economy seems to be very strong under him, and he has handled national security issues with a brave face. I will give him credit for that, and I will give credit where credit is due. But lately, the blindsided black and white polarization has reached epic proportions. I wouldn't say historic, we've definitely seen worse in our history, but let's pray and let's pray hard that we never see those days again.

Of course, for people who have different viewpoints, I respect those as well, and mean nothing that I say in any sort of offensive manner. I believe we should all have freedom to express our own opinions on matters like these, as long as we are respectful in our approach. Smile
