One way in which I feel socially isolated is not by my political preference, but actually by my lack of knowledge when it comes to politics. Of course I know who the president is, but that’s about it. I have a vague idea about the differences between the Republican and Democratic parties and what they stand for. It was a requirement in high school to take a U.S. History in class in which we learned about the Senate, Congress, how passing laws and voting for the president works, but it’s all over my head. I am interested in the government and how it works; I even took a political science class freshman year to see if it was something I could get myself into. But again, everything just seemed to be too much for me to comprehend. I am very embarrassed by this, and when political topics come up in conversation, I feel like an idiot for not knowing anything. I have no idea what Obama has been up to or what’s going on in our country. It’s not that I don’t care as much as I just don’t understand. I can get A’s in math, English, psychology
