We do in fact get together with neighbors to watch the debates, and it’s treated almost like a sporting event… there’s drinking, snacks, cheering, yelling, maybe even some objects thrown at the TV.

Do you watch the debates? Or maybe the party’s conventions? Ever go to see a candidate speak live? I saw Joe Biden speak last year at a nearby farm/orchard and it was quite an experience. I’m not hugely political, and at times feel it’s all useless anyway, but I am proud to live in a country where I have a right to vote.
