"Good manners reflect something from inside-an innate sense of consideration for others and respect for self" Emily Post

In the United States there is no freedom that is more cherished than our freedom of speech. In the 21st Century, expressing a person's viewpoint has become easier. With Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, You Tube, and more, there are so many ways to help promote and help communicate thoughts and opinions. 


How does a Sophisticate communicate her political views during an election?

A sophisticate is political yet, she is still  passionate in her beliefs. For a sophisticate, the presidential candidate she choose to vote for is personal. She respects the fact that for other people as well. Therefore, no matter who she decides to vote for a sophisticate expresses her opinions in a objective and positive way. She asks questions, makes lighthearted comments, and does not resort to being hurtful or vindictive with her comments.

It is about voicing her opinion but more important being respectful about how others may feel about your post. it is about showing and giving respect towards other people views not just your own. 

In the end, a sophisticate is classy and to be considered sophisticated she remembers to respects the viewpoint of her friends and those around her. She  makes sure to keep perspective on how she represents herself, in what she says, and what she posts on Twitter, Facebook, or any other social media site.

2. Don't status anything political twice or three times a day
