I was just really curious about this, since I volunteer at an ICU visiting room, and of course I mostly just sit there and sometimes the patients' relatives will come up to me and talk to me about stuff in general.
Sometimes, some of them go into long-winded discussions on how Obama and socialism are ruining our country. Of course, I'm polite (and make a point of saying that ALL politicians suck), but the liberal in me is
So I had to ask, do your patients ever try and goad you into discussing politics with them?
If so, how do you take it? Do you give them your two cents', do you agree with what they say (even if you believe they are way off), or something else?
