Yes, I know most people would answer this “Moral Question of the Week” with a quick, “Of course.” But, to me, it’s not so simple. To me, the future of my kids’ lives are at stake with what is going on in the world today. Therefore, the politics of our times – both domestically and internationally – make a huge difference in my day-to-day life and thinking. I’ve found that reasonable “dialogue” with people with opposing views is hard and often ends up in someone being angry. So, with “old” friends on the opposite spectrum, we’ve agreed to simply not talk politics.

          I think it’s best to just stay out of office politics!

The question is more for me with new friends. And that is my question for you? You can’t divorce yourself from your family – most of the time – so this does not apply to family though I’d suggest leaving politics OUT of the holiday get-togethers.
