I'm into politics - I'm interested in the election and how pissed off people get.
I think it is very difficult today to have a reasoned public discourse on any controversial subject. Certainly, election years present a complicating factor.

I learned more about elections on election night 2000 than I ever did during my 16 years of schooling.
It's a long time until the next election, but it starts now. And if you truly want to see things change in the direction that our country is headed, you have to stay involved. You cannot quit now.
The election result is not a victory that belongs to me or my party.
Narendra Modi is a bubble. After elevation in his party, his first test was the Karnataka election. He failed miserably in that.
The Democratic Party is getting very angry, and that came through clearly in this election.
My first meeting as a senator, my first day, they were already talking about the next election. Part of that's the permanent campaign, part of that's a word I've been using more frequently, 'tribal.' Our politics has become tribal: It's us versus them.
It is not just software glitches and corrupted memory cards that should be on the minds of election officials. Hackers pose another very real problem whereby an election could be tilted towards a favored candidate.

As our values are the core to who we are as human beings, they are also the easiest way to identify and connect with others in meaningful ways.
