Sure. I can't guarantee I will do it; I'd need to like and agree with the request, but I am always open to suggestions.

Well, alright. May I request? I don't know if you've seen/heard this one. This is quote from Neil de Grasse Tyson = "It is the knowledge that I am going to die, that creates the focus that I bring to being alive. The urgency of accomplishment, the need to express love, now, not later." www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ndj5Kj… 3:20-3:42 There may be more potential good quotes from the video, but I chose this. I will not mind if you do not do it.

Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many rewards. If you fail, you'll be able to write a book about it.

Politics will always be against youngsters because we make up problems to help feed our need for attention! Trust me, as a high schooler I know first hand.

Actually makes you think.... Some Young People are actually very Arrogant Ignorant and Blinded by their Belief that their Side of Things is Superior so wouldnt you want those young people to mature or watch and try to learn from their Elders Mistakes before getting into the politics? (Sorry this is just my thoughts Ima wander away from this now..)

No pls don't, I agree entirely with this. They just can't let themselves be told what to believe by elders, namely teachers, like many have been. We all need to look with our own eyes at everything going on and research for ourselves the goings on of the world

Oh okay then!

And that in itself is true since people are usually told by things from the point of views of others than what they themselves see, I kind of see this with History as we are only hearing from one side than the other which can go with Politics as well as instead of pointing thw fingers and having petty bickerings between the two sides, they could view each others sides and come to terms

I mean young people would at least want to view and make their own judgements instead...

(Sorry Im rambling)

1 don't be sorry, we need to stop being sorry about such tiny things XD

And while young people want to have their own views and judgments I've seen a lot that let themselves think the views are their own while they're really the views of teachers :p

Sorry its a force of habit (plus though we have free speech on the internet, you have to be VERY Cautious on what you say since it can be twisted or taken the wrong way..)

(Yep what's funny is Im more of a victim of that while my little brother often speaks out about his views on their views and gets in trouble)

But anyways its Kind of like how some people live for their families instead of living for themselves and not experiencing things first hand more so, becoming hive minded when it comes to decision (Politics Jobs Choices etc)

It's ok, it used to be for me as well but we need to quit. I've noticed it makes everyone expect an apology for the pettiest crud even if they don't deserve it. And the hive mind is a dangerous one for sure :p

It's cool that your brother does that, we need wayyyy more people speaking their true mind and getting in trouble for it rather than being prisoners of this pc globalist culture. I myself am trying to do the same more often.
As too being very cautious on the internet I used to be cautious and pc in what I say, these past weeks I've quit though, I'm tired of living in fear of that.
I've even started looking into all this hillarious kekistan stuff which I suggest to anyone who's tired of living in fear of being attacked by the "righteous" of the web. It's the most beautiful mockery of all the mainstream politics right now XD

Mmm hmm, but so far on this ive met some people who arent like that (though im never around when the dramatics come to make life harder)

Yeah he keeps getting in trouble though... I like to believe there is some things we should listen to but some things we must experience ourselves to judge it

And im still am ive actually became a bit more paranoid because some people on this are sick individuals

Oh I actually keep quiet when it comes to politics especially when people repeat generic things like "Trump is Terrible" and then everyone goes on the bandwagon like sheep.

I like to avoid and watch to be honest..

(Also thank you for the Watch ;w; )

No problem on the watch and then you should really start looking into the kekistani trolls on youtube. they call Trump their god-emperor, literally everything they do is off the mainstream bandwagon and could get you laughing for days if you have a good sense of humor XD

By the way I'm glad you're not on the hate trump bandwagon either, he's not perfect and I don't fully support him but he's done some smart and decent stuff already as prez and he deserves some recognition for that.

I agree with this quote, but young people need to get involved while thinking for themselves and investigating each side and opinion they hear and apply science, statistics, history, and known truths to those sides and opinions. They shouldn't just blindly get involved with whatever they're told is the "good" side to be on. There's too much of that going on right now.

Politics is something nobody should get intensely involved into because every candidate goes back on their promises.

Mainstream media has it out for our current president just as they do for any pres the loudest groups don't like. Trump has done good and bad things for America just like every other pres out there. He does have America's interest in mind though, he's pulled us out of an awful deal that Obama got us into and would have cost us lots of jobs and money. And he's solidifying relations with Israel by being the first sitting pres to visit and pay respects to their religion at one of their holiest sites.
Not telling you to support him blindly, I sure don't, in fact I voted for a third party candidate rather than either democrat or republican. just don't hate him blindly, look at both sides of the battle and build your own oppinions. You'll find the all the options have pros and cons and all the media and every person has their own biases to push.
Most of all don't listen to teachers about politics, too many kids right now are allowing themselves to be force fed that stuff.

Wait... hold up.... and hang the hades on...

Young people.. those mentally challenged and intellectual neophytes get into politics which is Machiavelli's wet dream and a liars paradise where black isn't white but made of rock with whipped cream on top.
So we have the piss n vinegar brain dead zombies getting into political power bases !
And folks wonder why I claim the Lunatics run the asylum.....
I just wish some Space hamster would come eat my brain for a light snack rather than face a damn teen/tewenty-something( Have two children so I know exactly the mentality) with political aspirations and motivation to become the penultimate whore.

And yet, when political participation of young people is low, bad policies more easily get through. Young people are needed to balance out old people. Their respective flaws keep the other in check.

I do agree that it's generally inadvisable for 20 somethings to run for high(ish) office, but there are many ways to get into politics otherwise. They need to have a presence, is how I interpret this.

I agree with you that bad things happen when one specific age group is dominate but as for getting into politics I prefer the old adage " I would rather play piano in a whore house. It is more honest work"

Truly bad things only happen when an un(der)educated, low-information electorate allows bad things to happen. Witness the last three or four presidential cycles. Letting children "get involved" with politics without a solid education, without a good understanding of history and political philosophy (to say nothing of a complete lack of understanding of the founding principles of the country they live in and are citizens of) and without thoughtful, rational and truly unbiased formation is a recipe for disaster.
