An Exploration of Branding, Design and Cultural Trends

Why I Hate Politics.. sometimes

2 Reasons why I sometimes think politics are stupid:

1- Candidates take opposing positions on issues just so they can differentiate themselves from their opponents.

2- It is frowned upon to change your position. Okay so not being able to make up your mind is definitely a weakness. But shouldn't candidates have the freedom to evolve their thinking and see the other side? I mean taking into account how someone voted years ago on a subject and then comparing it to decisions they've recently made doesn't seem to make that much sense. We are all judged on our past actions, but imagine if people judged me based on who I was 5 years ago, that wouldn't be fair. I'd like to think what I've learned has changed me and helped me evolve as a person.
