Have you ever noticed when it comes time to figure out where to go to eat, no one really knows what they want? But when someone suggests something, they know they don't want it. But when you ask them what they do want, they still don't know? I think it is partly because no one wants to be responsible for picking if someone doesn't like it. Or they don't want their choice to be shot down.
That is how I can be about politics. Mostly, I can't flat out tell you what I believe in the political arena. But if someone brings stuff up, then I can tell them I don't want that. "Then what do you suggest?" No idea. Well, maybe no idea that I want responsibility for. And what if you don't like my idea or beliefs? What if you shoot it down? I might cry!
With the blogosphere, that has changed somewhat. Because I read more about politics, not just what is in the media, I get a different view point. More often than not, I get both sides. I can take what I read and pick out of it what I agree with and what I don't. And with that I build my beliefs and form my opinions.
