Newton's Third Law of Motion

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

I'm sure you remember this law from high school physics class. So what does this have to do with politics? Simple.

For every political action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

This seems to me to be an important lesson to keep in mind when I run for office. As much as politicians would like to have every voter in their corner, it just isn't possible. It is inevitable that if you gather more than a couple of people in the room, you're going to have opposing views on just about every issue. You've probably thought to yourself after arguing with someone who disagrees with you, "How can this person, who's usually intelligent, be for [insert name of issue] when I'm against it?" I'm sure that you've also thought that if everybody used their logic like you do, that everybody would end up agreeing with you. The good news is that not everybody agrees with you.

This isn't meant to be mean, it's the truth. During the founding of our country, we had the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists. They disagreed, and we most certainly benefited from their disagreements. No issue is ever completely one-sided, and a good politician will look at both sides of the issue and base their decision on the facts and intuition.
