I'm writing this because people seem to assume that everybody who askes a question on certain hot botton topics, is either for or against said topic. No one stops to think that maybe, just maybe, the person asking is just doing so out of curiosity and that's it.
I'm one of those people. I like asking questions, to seek informantion and to get answers so I can learn about things I want to or didn't know about. All of which falls under the category of being curious. I'm a curious person and often I can just be sitting there and a random question pops into my head, so I decide "this would make a good question for GAG, I'd like to see what people think". Then when people start insulting me or making assumptions about me that aren't true, I often regret asking that question because it caused such an uproar.
I'm not into politics, never have been and never will be. I'm not even registered to vote. So, I literally have no horse in this political race. I know nothing about either candidate, except for what I hear. I know nothing about the issues, except for what I hear they are. And, I never heard either wannabe president speak, except for when they repeat little clips of a speech of there's on the news and I don't even watch the news. My dad does, loudly so lol. So, I hear it when I'm walking down the stairs and such. That's it though.
What I do know is, how to read and what a headline looks like. And, sure the news people hype things up for ratings but they can't fake shootings and the number of people dead and injuried from it.
So, when I asked my question about" if Trump could stop the (what seems to be) almost everyday violence, would it change your mind about him?" It wasn't because of Trump or what he said in his speeches. It's based on all the breaking news stories on a new shooting more frequently than it use to be. Like I said, crazy people have always and always will exist but it was never like this and people can debate me on that but in the years of events that I do remember, there was never this many. At least not three days or three weeks apart, it just never use to be like that. That's why I asked that because it's sad and so many innocent lives have been lost for no reason at all and if all it would take to make things a little safer is better leader such as Trump, who wouldn't want that?
I'm just a curious person by nature, always have been and always will be. I can't control that and wouldn't want to because learning new things and inquiring about things can never be a bad thing. It only seems bad when people resort to name calling because they think they know you when they don't. So, just know there are curious people out there that ask questions for that sole reason. And, they probably ask questions on here more then you think. Just keep that in mind before you jump to a conclusion. Thanks.
