The political spectrum is changing thanks to social media. People are speaking up more than ever now, and I am part of that movement. I also like to let people know what I stand for with some of the clothing I wear, too. I can do this by buying 2nd amendment shirts because it lets people know about one topic that is incredibly important to me. It’s nice when other people stop me on the street and ask me where I got the shirt I’m wearing because they want one, too. It is nice to get to know people in person who feel the way that I do.
Too often, I find that people are afraid to speak up in today’s political climate because there are not sure who they can trust. When I wear clothing that tells people what I stand for, they know they can trust me. It makes them feel confident about speaking up and announcing to me that they believe in what I believe in. I have even had the good fortune of meeting strangers who spoke up to me after seeing my clothing that announces my political beliefs, and we have become friends because of the clothing.
I never expected politics to become such a big topic in homes across the country. Politics has always been important to some extent in most people’s lives, but that has become even more true in the past ten years. I want happiness for people on both sides. However, there are too many people who only want to look at their side as the correct side. I tell everyone that we need to work toward a peaceful balance for everyone, not just one side. There is no one right answer, and everyone needs to understand that we have to work with one another instead of only against one another.
