I like to keep my political opinions on the down low. I’m happy to let people know I skew left on social, environmental and human rights and tend to lean further right when it comes to fiscal and immigration policies, but for the most part I try to sit out of heated political debates with people who aren’t immediate family, (or known scrappers like myself, lest it cause rifts). I even steer clear of lawn signs and bumper stickers because the race is so heated and contentious. No matter how sure I am of my position I'd rather not start up with a neighbor in the Trader Joe's parking lot. However, with the election so close and the two parties so polarized, I'm finding it more and more difficult to hold my tongue.
