Gutfeld: How Politics Changes When You Become an Adult
This past election day, we were finally given an example of what adult politics looks like. Voters from both parties came out in record numbers to fulfill their Constitutional duty and use their power to have a say in US politics. Sadly, leading up to this single example of adult politics has been a long line of teenage politics.
Teenage politics is taking to the street to protest for the sake of protesting, “taking a stand” against things you do not understand. Teenage politics is the mob mentality we have seen from those on the left where conservatives are harassed in public places and driven out simply because of their beliefs and the party that they represent. Teenage politics is also in full play when the mainstream media makes every single thing Trumps says and does out to be a world-ending moment.
Adult politics where citizens take to the polls instead of the streets is good for the country. It’s encouraging to see such record turnout from both parties in the midterm no matter which party you support. It means that people are engaged and interested in having their voice heard in a meaningful way. We need more adult politics in the United States, and far less teenage politics. After all, who votes more is far more important in this country than who screams the loudest.
