Those who try to mimic the US culture or politics, you may want to do it with a clear understanding so that you don’t confuse your mind, belief and ability to make an informed living style.
In the US, the political sphere is divided into separate groups; the right, the left, and the middle. And then you have the string knots in the middle. Each sphere whether left, right or anywhere else can easily influence how you may see things, from a US perspective.
Such as some of the US news media or TV and Radio commentaries and analysts; they may say or write certain things, such as The News Fox Channel, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, etc will likely never to say or air anything that may compliment President Obama or the Democratic Party, since they tend to lean toward the far right.
Likewise, those who lean to the far left will likely never really say anything good about a Republican President or The Republican Party.
Each political sphere tends to fight against (not literally) the other on whatever many different issues. And for you, it’s important to listen, read, and watch the news that are more balanced and objective such The New York Times (if you read The New York Times, you may become smarter, because The New York Times is written scholarly). NPR, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC (financial), Bloomberg (financial), The Los Angeles Times, and a few more that are some of the US news media that tend to be not leaning to either side, and reading them could help offer you how you think or perceive the US culture or politics.
Believe it or not, the US influence is all around us; the products you buy in stores; Coca Cola, Movies, Music, Medicine, Food stuff, Education (Colleges), Technology (Apple, Facebook, IBM, Microsoft, etc). Hence if you aspire to understand your surrounding and environment, it’s best to always know the real truth, and not letting yourself misdirected and or lied to some sources of what you hear, read or watch on TV.
Even this writing, if I am a Democrat or Republican, I can easily try to influence you with my own opinion, and then you may actually believe what I wrote, but it’s just my own opinion.
Be careful of what you feed your brain, what you listen to, what you read, and what you watch can directly or indirectly influence your thinking ability and belief.
Don’t be a moron, read, listen, watch, but decide for yourself what it is that you want to believe.
