Political Jewelry - Would You Wear It?
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
I'm pretty old fashioned when it comes to politics and prefer to keep my opinions on the down low, but when I stumbled on these jewels I was instantly curious how some of my fashionable friends feel about it. While the notion of wearing your support on your sleeve is nothing new, these are some of the more subtle I've seen, with necklaces available in sterling silver, gold, and diamond options, ranging from $150 to $1,000. So my question is, would you wear political jewelry or apparel with pride? Or keep your choice to yourself? Obviously, there's no right or wrong answer. As with choosing a candidate, we're all entitled to our own opinion. :)
Speaking of, I've joked with friends about needing a chart to break down and understand the issues this time around. Honestly, I'm a little exhausted of it all. But after watching this video, while hilarious, it made me realize even more, how important it is to be informed before hitting the polls. I found this candidate match quiz super useful for helping narrow down the choices based upon your stance on some of the major issues. Whether you're undecided or just want to double check your choice, it's quick and easy, complete with a "learn more" button at each question that breaks down the support or oppose position in understandable terms. I took the test and it turns out I'm about a 60/40 split! I guess it's like dating, you have your "deal breakers", and you take the bad with the good!
The good news is, we're under the 10 day mark now, then our personal Facebook news feeds can go back to being pictures of cute babies and what we had for dinner...
