    And how do you know? I mean, do you have formed opinions, vote regularly or share your views and opinions or do you subscribe to political parties, attend meetings, arrange social gatherings or fund raisers, subscribe to political magazines or journals, blogs, public speakers?

    how interested are you in politics?
    I watch several news outlets based in different locations of the world, compare the narrative, follow up on things and base my opinions based on all that I've found. Decide what information is relevant for me and my future to keep in consideration and act towards. As such I do have opinions about presidents from various nations, and some knowledge on how the political system works in some of the more relevant countries to me and the general direction they appear to be taking.

    do you have formed opinions?
    I have formed my own opinions.

    vote regularly?
    No, but if I do I usually vote for parties that try to help animals since none of the others actually do something to actively fix the issues within their own borders. In fact, most parties just make things worse.

    share your views and opinions?
    Sometimes. Usually though I keep my thoughts and opinions on political entities to myself.
    I don't feel the need to force feed my views and opinions down another's throat.

    do you subscribe to political parties?
    No.

    attend meetings?
    NO.

    arrange social gatherings or fund raisers?
    Hell no.

    subscribe to political magazines, journals, blogs, public speakers?
    No. But I do sometimes visit relevant journals, blogs and political sub categories on news pages.

    I am both interested in and depressed by politics. But I manage to keep up with it nonetheless. I have formed opinions, vote regularly and read political literature. I don't do more activist things like arrange for gatherings and speakers. I am careful who I share my opinions with.

    I am interested to the effect that the American people are short changed and trodden upon by socialist ideals. This is a capitalist country. Its what it was founded on and how it needs to remain.

    I'm not really interested in politics...it's all theatre to distract people from what they're doing with the money and the laws and the spying

    how interested are you in politics?

    I feel a responsibility to participate in the democratic process. I force myself to educate myself on what budgets look like, and what I would rather the money be spent on, and I vote accordingly. I hate debates and when politicians spend time trash-talking opponents. It makes me cynical and disinterested in the election.

    do you have formed opinions?

    Absolutely. I believe that poverty is the main reason for the ills of society. I feel strongly for alternative energy. I hate corruption. Global warming worries me. I do my best to fight for the rights of LGBT people.

    vote regularly?

    I vote in every election, and encourage everyone to form their own opinions and vote accordingly. I'd rather my side loses than people staying at home.

    share your views and opinions?

    Never socially. I used to, but it ruins everything. I keep my political beliefs to myself and use them when I find it appropriate outside of a social context. I have participated in marches, political meeting and events in defence of minorities and political victims.

    do you subscribe to political parties?

    I used to be a member of political parties, but I don't like their tactics, so I just vote from the outside.

    attend meetings?

    As previously mentioned, I used to. It's not for me, I get upset too easily. The inner workings of political parties worries me.

    arrange social gatherings or fund raisers?

    I have participated in those, and I will still if I believe in the cause. If you don't actively vote for and fight for what you believe, you can't be upset if it doesn't come to fruition.

    subscribe to political magazines, journals, blogs, public speakers?

    Nope. I prefer to make up my own mind.

    I would say because it's less dense, but in this situation that's inaccurate.
